*Checks calendar* February is almost over which means we are officially two months in to 2020! Many of us started 2020 with new years resolutions or affirmations for the year. I am sure those included being healthier, working out more etc. I am no different, but also know I have to be realistic with myself. Ya girl likes to eat out! I’ve obviously built a whole brand around this. As such, I try to find dining options that are good, fairly priced and do not load on the calories. Bonus points if they deliver! Well, a few weeks back I had the privilege of visiting one of Houston’s Bellagreen locations to try their winter menu. With Bellagreen, I found a spot that meets all of these qualifications! Here are the details on the Bellagreen winter menu!
Bellagreen has several locations in Houston (Sugarland, the Heights, CityCentre). For my trip, I stopped over at the River Oaks location on West Alabama. Bellagreen has a casual dining concept where guests order from the counter and grab the table of their choice. The nice staff delivers your order to the table. There are plenty of tables inside, but also a decent sized patio outside for when it is nice outside.
Bellagreen aims to create good food with fresh ingredients. Best of all, their menu covers just about every diet from Gluten Free, Whole 30, dairy free, Keto, Vegan and Vegetarian. The Bellagreen team invited me out to try their Winter Menu and a few other items on the regular menu.
We started with the Organic Spinach and Artichoke Dip served with sun dried tomatoes and flatbread. I would say it is lighter than other spinach dips, but does not lack flavor. The inclusion of tomatoes and flatbread for dipping is an added plus. For entrees, I ordered the Paleo Chicken Enchiladas, a dish from the winter menu. The enchiladas include paleo tortillas, roasted chicken, pico de gallo and optional goat cheese. I was skeptical about this dish because “healthy” for me often means not tasty. This dish alone proves that is completely wrong. Tons of flavor and honestly very similar to a traditional enchilada.
Finally, the area that Bellagreen really shines, desserts! When you walk in, the dessert counter greets you with tons of options. My sister joined me on this excursion and we really debated ordering two or three desserts. We finally settled on the Flourless Chocolate Cake from the winter menu. Again, I had low expectations, because “flourless” worried me. But y’all.. this cake right here?! Is amazing! SO amazing that I have gone back since my last visit just for this cake! Again, this is only on the winter menu so run don’t walk to go try it.
Bellagreen is a great option for those who are looking for healthy dining out options or if you are on a more restrictive diet. AND they are on UberEats so you can have it delivered! Just a note, the Flourless Chocolate Cake is not on UberEats, but there are tons of other great items. Enjoy!
