It’s natural to lament the end of summer — the most carefree of seasons — but with its departure comes new opportunities. As the weather starts to slowly cool down, outdoor activities will finally become bearable again. The walk from your car to the front door will no longer cause you to break a sweat, and your A/C bill will finally drop back down to double digits.
We may think of summer as an active, healthy season, but fall has just as many opportunities to get and stay healthy. Trinity Groves has plenty of healthy food options and activities that will help you feel good all year round.
Ditch the car
Dallas isn’t the most bike-friendly city, but Trinity Groves is easily accessible to cyclists and walkers alike. The Ron Kirk pedestrian bridge leads you right to Trinity Groves, and you won’t have to worry about impatient motorists along the way. This is one of the best ways to view the beautiful Dallas skyline.
If you don’t have a bike of your own, don’t worry! There are plenty of rental bikes parked along the bridge that you can easily snag. Or if you don’t feel like biking, bring your favorite furry companion with you for a leisurely stroll along the bridge.
Once you’re at Trinity Groves, there’s plenty of patio space on which you and Fido can hang out and enjoy some refreshing beverages. When you walk or cycle over to Trinity Groves, you’ll work up quite the appetite that any of our restaurants can surely satiate.
As tasty as meat is, it can be beneficial to take a break every now and then. For these meatless days, there’s no better place to go than V-Eats. Everything on the menu is vegan, but you wouldn’t know it at first glance. They have items ranging from Fried Chock-Non (chicken) to a portobello steak to one of the finest meatless burgers around. They also have an incredibly creative cocktail menu. Anything you order at V-Eats will have you feeling fantastic about your choices.
Don’t forget the salad days
Salads are a quintessential component of healthy eating, and for good reason: they’re nutritionally dense without having too many calories. That being said, they can sometimes be pretty boring and bland. However, the restaurants at Trinity Groves have some incredibly creative salads that achieve the rare combination of being both delicious and nutritious.
Beto & Son has a healthy yet filling Margarita Salmon salad that includes avocado, roasted pepitas and a cilantro margarita dressing. LUCK’s Watermelon Salad will keep you feeling refreshed with arugula, feta, fresh mint, balsamic vinaigrette and, of course, watermelon. Amberjax has a few salad options that may seem traditional at first glance, but once you add their fresh shrimp, crab or salmon, you’ll be looking at one of the best salads in the city.
In addition to these healthy food and activity options at Trinity Groves, make sure you stay up-to-date with our event calendar. You’ll be the first to know about yoga on the patio, bike rides and more. We look forward to helping you stay healthy this fall!
