Resolved to Eat Cleaner in 2019? These 5 Local Eateries Got Your Back

Make 2019 your body’s favorite year yet.

‘Clean’ should never mean tasteless—and it never does at the 5 local eateries below.

The holidays are, mercifully, over. So now what? Yes, you’ve renewed your long-dormant gym membership. Yes, you’re planning to get back into those skinny jeans… someday.

But what about your diet? If you’re looking to revise your food life in honor of the new year, the Hamptons have plenty of healthy options to help. Cleanse doesn’t have to be a swear word, after all.

Simply Sublime

Tucked away on Springs Fireplace Road in East Hampton’s Springs neighborhood, this six-year-old juice bar and takeout restaurant has a healthy-but-delicious bent. Clean eaters can opt for any number of green juice (say yes to the Mr. Green smoothie, made with kale, basil, spinach, banana, parsley, pineapple juice, and chia seeds), as well as an ample selection of made-to-order breakfasts and lunches. There are salads, burritos, protein-packed entrees (like the black bean bowl or shrimp quesadilla) and bone broths. And the small market at the store’s front offers up organic and natural food for those looking to stock the fridge.

Simply Sublime, 85 Springs Fireplace Road, East Hampton, open daily 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., (631) 604.1566. 

Naturally Good

Montauk residents have long since plead their allegiances to Naturally Good, which is now enjoying its second—and far more visible—Montauk location. It’s a restaurant. It’s a juice bar. It’s a sit-down café. It’s a grocery store for those with bottomless pockets. In short, it’s a little bit of everything. Food is organic and whole grain-heavy, and you won’t find any real “meat” (aside from fish here and there). There are vegan options aplenty, of course, so no cleanser will go hungry. And, given the fact that Montauk is starved for year-round dining and shopping options, Naturally Good is a, well, good option for those who feel abandoned in the winter months.

Naturally Good, 779 Montauk Highway, Montauk, open daily 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., (631) 668.9030. 

Hamptons Beach Bowls

You might not expect a bagel heiress to make a go of a health food restaurant, but here it is. Amanda Goldberg, of Goldberg’s Famous Bagels fame, recently opened Bridgehampton’s homage to the cleanse, Hamptons Beach Bowls, where the healthy-minded can make their own bowls with any number of ingredients, including fresh fruit, gluten-free granola, coconut flakes, nutella, nut butters, and more. The take-out restaurant, located right in the center of Bridgehampton on Main Street, also serves sandwiches, soups, and “zoodles.” Given the expansive options, you’d be hard (or cold) pressed to leave here hungry.

Hamptons Beach Bowls, 2462 Main Street, Bridgehampton, open Monday and Thursday 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Friday through Sunday 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., (631) 899.4340. 

Provisions

This decades-old Sag Harbor institution is truly a trendsetter. Provisions knew that health food was cool even when it wasn’t, and they continue to provide a healthful option for mindful East End eaters. A large market carries every manner of organic and natural food (as well as beauty product and supplement), while a formidable juice and smoothie bar can produce pretty much everything under the sun. A sit-down restaurant, where guests can order the Asian tofu salad or the egg jambalaya, is nearly always packed with happy diners. It’s the perfect place to kick off a cleanse—or to keep a habit of clean eating going well past January.

Provisions, 7 Main Street, Sag Harbor, café and juice bar open daily 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., market open daily 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., (631) 725.3636. 

Organic Krush

Ironically, Organic Krush, in Amagansett, was once home to Mary’s Marvelous, where cupcakes and coffee—and not fresh-pressed juice—were the name of the game. Since they took over the space a few years ago, Organic Krush has been serving health-conscious options (zoodles, gluten-free foods, salads, wraps, hot entrees, cold-pressed juices, smoothies, and more) to an enthusiastic clientele. They also offer one-, three-, and five-day cleanses, which substitute fresh juices and vegan meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Best of all, their website platform allows customers to order food online, either for immediate delivery or for a future time and date. In short: The holiday belt-busting buck stops here.

Organic Krush, 207 Main Street, Amagansett, open Thursday through Monday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., (631) 527.7717.
