A healthy start this 2019 in Houston!
A healthy start this 2019 in Houston!

It seems that every year we propose the same purposes: to exercise, eat better, be healthier. But it just takes going through a Shipley's, Whataburger or our favorite Tex-Mex restaurant and we forget those goals until next January.

In fact, statistics show that only 58 percent of resolutions remain past the first month of the year. But for those willing to meet their goals this year, Houston offers several options to lead a healthy lifestyle.


Eating healthy should no longer be boring. Houston has an extensive list of healthy foods that are as appetizing as their high-calorie competitors. Those who seek to maintain their figure rely on popular venues such as Local Foods and Bellagreen for their healthy menus and affordable prices. Local Foods' "Garden Sammie," a sandwich of Brussels sprouts, avocado and hummus, and Bellagreen's "Oh Kale Yeah" salad are healthy options that do not sacrifice flavor.

The salads and sandwiches of mountainous sizes that are served at Baby Barnaby's in Montrose show why this restaurant has not lost its popularity. Other places like True Food Kitchen and Harvest Organic Grille offer delicious dishes that will help you fulfill your purpose of eating well this year.

While most of these places offer vegan options, Green Seed Vegan serves vegan burgers and paninis, as well as fresh juices, smoothies, and "raw" foods. A favorite of the customers is the Dirty Burque burger, prepared from buckwheat and topped with green chiles, arugula, avocado, tomato, onion mayonnaise, and mustard served on a wheat roll.


When you're in a hurry, sometimes drinking a juice or shake is a healthy alternative. Places like Buddha Juice and Revolution Coffee & Juice offer bottled, natural and organic juices for those who want something quick to go. Taking advantage of the success of her old juicing truck, Gretchen Todd-Hawkins opened Juice Girl, a store that offers cold-pressed natural drinks and a half-dozen vegan ice creams.

For the most adventurous people, most of these places offer detoxification packages with juices, designed to rid your body of all those unwanted toxins.


In recent years, organic and farmer markets have become increasingly popular and show no signs of slowing down. Visiting these markets on weekends not only helps you get up, but also allows you to support and discover local farmers and businesses. Fruits and vegetables always taste a little better when you buy them directly from who grows them.

Check the list of markets in Houston to find the one closest to you.


To get in shape you do not have to go bankrupt paying an expensive gym membership. In Houston, you can find free yoga classes at stores like Lululemon and Athleta while Discovery Green and Levy Park offer a wide variety of free classes, such as Zumba, yoga, meditation, and parkour. 

F3 Cross Training offers a free training class twice a month. And for those looking to explore the bayous of Houston and enjoy all its beauty, the Bayou Bikers meet once a month at Market Square for a 25- to 40-mile bicycle ride through the city.
Maintaining a healthy body is fine but you should not forget your mind and soul. Taking time to eliminate stress and clear your mind will help keep you focused on your health and fitness goals in the new year. The Rothko Chapel (Rothko Chapel), a chapel, museum, and forum without denomination, is a perfect quiet space to get rid of the stress of the week.

Follow these steps and you can keep your purposes beyond the first month of the year.
