With 70 miles of coastline to the west and vast deserts and rolling hills to the east, the possibilities for enjoying the great outdoors in San Diego are limitless. Just in North County alone, visitors can hike, bike, surf, go for a trail ride on horseback, paraglide, and much more. Ask any local San Diegan and they’ll tell you that staying in shape is a big part of the San Diego lifestyle – hey, you have to be in tip-top shape to surf Swami’s Beach or hike Cowles Mountain – and eating right is a big part of San Diego’s healthy lifestyle.

The following North County farm fresh dining venues offer cuisine that’s conscious of your health (and the planet’s, too!).
