Local healthy restaurant menu options

Many local options are available – look for places that serve fresh fruits and vegetables, such as Jason’s Deli, and locally owned establishments.

Healthy grocery store choices

Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s both offer an extensive selection of fresh produce. Local grocery stores such as Reasor’s also offer fresh, locally grown produce.

Insecurity/Food Deserts

Some parts of Tulsa are considered “food deserts”, in that there are no places that sell fresh produce and an assortment of healthy foods. Try to avoid “small box” retailers such as dollar stores, as most foods are processed. Look for places where you can buy fresh or frozen produce and lean, healthy meats.
