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 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.
