Mmm, I'm Hungry: Eating Healthy in Nyack

Trying to eat healthy with such tempting menus in Nyack can be a challenge

Friday night the weather was beautiful. I always see people sitting outside at the restaurants in town and wanted to be one of them, so my husband and I went to Harry's Burritos and got an outside table.

The food is priced well, with many during the week. And it's tough to be on a diet when there are so many delicious choices on the menu—but Harry's Burritos has a lot of healthy options. They offer whole wheat tortillas, brown rice, and non-dairy sour cream options. Different vegetarian and vegan dishes are also available.

I really wanted a chimichanga; the thought of the crispy shell and juicy contents had my mouth watering, but I decided I must be strong. I had a marinated chicken enchilada topped with red sauce along with a side of rice and black beans. I forgot to substitute for the healthy options, but I mostly ate the inside of the enchilada. The dish was great, with more than I could eat on the plate. I was very satisfied!

And we finished two pitchers of sangria. (They were perfect: the fruit was marinated in the drink, not thrown in afterwards like some places.)

I have REALLY enjoyed eating here for a nice brunch...eggs w/ avocados, bacon and salsa? YUM! Their taco salad is also quite impressive! And I have always found the waitstaff to be friendly, accommodating & welcoming.

That sounds tasty! I've never had the brunch. Maybe I will have to try it soon!
