We’re Falling for DIRT’s New Autumn Menu

Our DIRT love affair is no secret. It’s one of those places that just makes you feel good when you walk in — and feel even better when you eat. Before discovering DIRT, our experiences with healthy(ish) places had been hit or miss. We usually ran into two problems:

1. We left the place hungry.
2. We left the place feeling cheated.

Eating healthy isn’t something that comes easy for us. As food bloggers, it’s especially difficult to follow a “clean eating” plan when we’re bombarded with unhealthy delicious creations left and right. Who has time for fruit bowls, smoothies and wraps? No, thank you.

It wasn’t until we came across DIRT last month that our mindset made a 180-degree turn. The team behind the new healthy eatery on Miami Beach has figured out a way to make eating clean a satisfying and tasty experience — and one worth repeating. In other words, DIRT makes us wish all healthy food tasted this good.
