By Miami Eater| Originally appeared on Miami Eater

In a perfect world, you could alternate between eating meatball subs and trays of loaded nachos every day with no repercussions for the planet, your blood pressure or the steadily increasing obesity rate in America. But sometimes we are troubled with the burden of "making good choices," especially when it comes to the foods we eat.

Misconceptions about healthy food include assumptions that it is tasteless, boring and not satisfying. Here are eight places in Miami that challenge those fallacies with dishes like creamy ice cream alternatives, healthy — yet delicious! — pizza, lightened up versions of Cuban classics, and other mouthwatering dishes that taste as good as they make you feel. Promise.

DIRT

Dirt is one of the few eateries that break down the protein, fat and carb content of each dish, a calculation nearly impossible for the average eater. The lemongrass chicken wrap is one of the healthiest options with only 300 calories and 14g of carbs. Its free-range chicken thigh is paired with carrot kitchen slaw, avocado aioli and local greens. Pro tip: ask to have it wrapped in collard greens.

Raise your hand if you know what an açaí palm is. Now raise your hand if you love açaí bowls. You can remain anonymous, but it's safe to say your hand only went up once.

But to be fair, and much like the indigenous people of the Brazilian Amazon, açaí is a staple in your diet, right? But unlike them, you might not always know where to get it.

Here are 9 places in Miami where you can get your much needed açaí fix, and other things you'll order on the side because you always underestimate how full the bowl alone actually gets you.
