Carlsbad CA— 2022 has arrived and that means renewed goals, clear mindsets and new resolutions. According to research conducted by IPSOS and San Diego-based Urban Plates, the top New Year’s resolutions year after year are to become more active, eat healthier, and improve personal finances.

Urban Plates Beet & Avocado Bowl is plant-based, vegan, gluten free and only $11.

A healthier diet is thought to be costly, which can be a deterrent especially during these unpredictable times. That’s why Urban Plates, the chef-driven, fast casual restaurant concept, offers dishes to help people stay on track with these resolutions with an array of options for every dietary preference – gluten free, plant based, dairy free, pescatarian, low carb, low calorie, anti-inflammatory and any combinations – as well as an affordable Everyday Menu.
The entire menu at Urban Plates is made from scratch with quality ingredients such as grass-fed steak, cage-free chicken, and sustainable seafood. A few other healthy facts include:

  • Plant Based: Half of the menu is vegetarian and 1/3 is vegan
  • High Protein: Over 15 meals contain 40 grams or more of protein
  • Low Calorie: Over 15 meals that are 540 calories or less

The concept’s Everyday Menu features creative and wholesome options featuring only scratch-made, healthy ingredients for only $11. Menu highlights include:

  • $11 Moroccan Chicken Braise featuring slow-cooked, cage-free, antibiotic and hormone free chicken tagine with winter squash, olives, preserved lemon and ginger with aromatic spices of turmeric, paprika, cumin and cinnamon served over organic brown or white rice (low calorie, dairy free, gluten free)
