Lunch Break: Boston Avenue Grill

 We're continuing our tour of downtown Tulsa for healthy lunch dishes.  We will be going to different restaurants around our Deco District first (think Elote, the Vault, Boston Avenue Grill, Billy's, LaSalle's etc.), and choosing the healthiest options at each!  We've already hit up the Deco Deli and posted our favorite options.

This week we stopped in the Boston Avenue Grill, located on the first floor of the ONEGas building.  We love that this establishment is also owned by two women.  We also love that their menu is composed of healthy lunch options like soups, sandwiches and salads.  

Teresa ordered the Boston Signature Salad with no bacon, and Sprenkel got the Taco Salad with no jalapeños.  Both glad look for salads that fit their tastes, while also being loaded with veggies. Sprenk also got a cup of the soup of the day.

Boston Avenue Grill gets two thumbs up from us because of the variety of their salad choices, and ease of customizing to your own tastes.  Be wary, as always of salad dressing.  They do a great job of not drowning the vegetables in the dressings but it's always a good idea to ask for it on the side so you can control the amount on your own.

The sandwiches are a scale down on the healthy choice list, mostly because of the bread and cheese.  If you've got a hankering for a sandwich, your two best options would be the Turkey and Avocado or Chicken Bruschetta.  If you really want to step it up, ask for no cheese on the sandwich.   As always, be mindful and slow in your eating, so you can pay attention to your body's hunger signals.  They do offer wraps in place of their sandwiches but that does not automatically make it healthier ;) 

Good luck navigating the healthy options this week!  Let us know what you want us to check out next!
