Two years ago, at the age of fifty-seven I decided to get healthy. I needed to lose weight and hated the idea of dieting. I looked all over town for places I could go that would not only be healthy but would deliver on taste. I tried a few places, but they were either too expense for the amount of food served or they were the same boring food that everyone produced.

Diced Gourmet Salads and Wraps

Once day I came across a restaurant called Diced Gourmet Salads and Wraps. It is tucked into a corner in a small shopping center. You can easily miss it if you are not looking for it. But it is well worth the visit. Diced provides healthy, interesting, vibrant food. There is a variety of options for any type of appetite.

When you order a salad, you can choose the base you prefer, everything from brown rice to spring mix, spinach, romaine or iceberg lettuce. There are the normal offerings for salads like tomatoes, cheese and croutons but there are also the exotic offerings such as roasted beets, sweet potatoes and edamame. The food is rich in color, cooked to perfection, and very well-seasoned.

Salads

They do have suggested salads that you can order from, but if there is something you don’t care for you can exchange it for something you do want in the salads or wraps. The other option is to craft your own salad with the multiple ingredients they provide. Or if you prefer something different you can have the ingredients enclosed in a whole wheat, spinach or gluten free wrap.

Diced also offers many different fresh handcrafted dressings or if you prefer drizzles to finish off your meal. There are also finishing touches like croutons, cashews or chow mein noodles. The beauty of Diced is that you could eat there twice a month for a year and never eat the same thing.

Daisy Duke

One of my favorite salads is the Daisy Duke. It is made with turkey, bacon, cheese, eggs, red onions, grape tomatoes and croutons. I’m not a big fan of red onions or croutons, but I can substitute one of the other thirty-one vegetable offerings. The server loads a bowl with the ingredients for the salad and then dump it all into a large metal bowl. Once in the bowl they take a curved knife known as a Ula knife and they chop the salad up into bite sized pieces. This means you don’t need a knife and it makes the salad so much easier to eat.

I have had the grain bowl as well and found that just as delicious as the salad. Diced believes in sourcing as much as it can locally.  The chicken used is cooked daily. Diced provides organic, grass-fed filet and antibiotic free chicken. They provide the freshest possible ingredients, so you get the finest possible food for your body.  You can’t go wrong no matter what you order.

You must try

If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to fast food, then you need to try Diced Gourmet Salads and Wraps. It is a great alternative for those of us who are health conscious.

I am a fifty-nine-year-old mother of six adult children. I spent thirty-five+ years cooking for my husband and children. After all those years cooking had become a chore. I didn’t even enjoy eating out anymore. Then two years ago my daughter challenged me to run a 5K with her. So, I decided that if I was going to run, I needed to get healthy and lose weight. By changing my diet and re-training myself on what foods were good for me I have lost over one hundred pounds. I have learned that cooking and preparing meals can be fun and exciting again. I have also found a passion for finding new and different foods and cooking methods. Restaurants and eating out sparks my imagination and challenge me to try new things. Food has become fun again and I enjoy sharing that with others.
