We all know healthier living has become the focus right now for many Americans looking to clean up their toxin-filled lifestyle. From guilt-free cleaner eating to cleanses designed to rid your body of toxins, more and more people are catching onto the idea that vegetarians have long known – custom bowls of fresh vegetables is the first way to kick start a healthier lifestyle. Vegetarian fare has come a long way in recent years since its earthy crunchy, tofu-only days and Boston has caught onto the meatless wave. Here’s a look at five of the best vegan/vegetarian restaurants to get your healthier living on.

1 by CHLOE.

After a visit to by CHLOE., you won't be missing your former carnivore days once you taste their quinoa taco salad or impressive selection of burgers like the one made with tempeh, lentil, chia and walnuts. The menu here is all about plant-based foods that taste good, so you will find everything from avocado pesto pasta and sesame ginger soba to air baked sweet potato fries and a nice selection of cold pressed juices. The chef-driven vegan menu focuses on locally-sourced, sustainable ingredients with a grab-and-go selection available in an eco-friendly packaging.

2 Clover Food Lab

Clover Food Lab
The ever-growing vegan haute brand known as Clover Food Lab has taken Boston by storm. With 12 locations in and around Boston and more in the suburbs, the animal-free focus at this Downtown Crossing starts first thing in the morning when business people line up for an eye opening taste of overnight oats with peanut butter and banana, cheesy grits and New England's favorite - the warm popover. If you come here in the afternoon, try a chickpea fritter sandwich or our go-to, the Mayor Menino soy BLT sandwich (even he couldn't believe how good it was) made with a fresh baked pita, smoky, roasted tempeh, sliced cocktail tomatoes and green leaf lettuce.

3 Cuong's Vegan

Cuong's Vegan
Chinatown might not be where you would expect to find one of the city's best vegan restaurants, but Cuong's Vegan delivers standout sandwiches like the deep fried tofu served on a toasted French roll and stir fried sliced red curry tofu topped with onions, string beans, zucchini, mushrooms, red peppers, coconut milk, and avocado. There are just five sandwiches and two salads on the menu to choose from along with two spring roll choices, but you won't find a better deal in town. Finish your visit off right with a guilt-free slice of carrot cake or lemon frosted poppyseed cake.

4 Life Alive Urban Oasis & Organic Cafe

Life Alive Urban Oasis & Organic Cafe
One of the best and easiest ways to make a healthy transition from a carnivorous lifestyle to a plant based one is by way of a delicious smoothie. Try the Island Alive made with bananas, dried mango and pineapples, non-dairy and soy-free ice cream, coconut oil, chia seeds and almond milk. Give it an extra kick with a nutri-boost like bee pollen, raw cacao, spirulina or turmeric juice. For the ultimate detox, we like the Jive Alive juice filled with cucumber, celery, kale, lemon and ginger. Heartier dishes include grain based bowls, organic soups and grilled wraps.

5 My Thai Vegan Cafe

My Thai Vegan Cafe
Who needs animal protein when you can nosh on crispy noodles tossed with broccoli, snow peas, mushrooms, bamboo shoots and baby corn? My Thai Vegan Cafe proves that vegetarians can have fun, too. Take, for example, the fresh mango and yellow curry dish served in a whole mango with tofu and almonds. We love the green asparagus and sauteed tofu dish kicked up with a spicy brown sauce that provides some surprising heat to this tasty vegetarian creation. Keep an eye out for seasonal specialties like the pumpkin curry medley of tofu, crisp basil leaves, walnuts, red curry and coconut milk served in a fresh whole pumpkin.
