As the summer just came to a close, I'm going to do some Tourganic summer throwbacks posts to some great spots I hit up in my travels but haven't posted about yet. These two spots are right next to each other and share an outdoor space. They are both definitely worth checking out. There aren't a ton of (healthy) restaurants in Telluride and both these will take care of the hungry traveler in this idyllic location in Colorado.
Caravan- Caravan is a small stand that offers great smoothies. They offer Mediterranean food, although I have never gotten the food, as I always head to Caravan for the 'Whole Meal Vegetable' smoothie. This is a true winner! Made with with Kale, Carrot, Strawberry, blueberry, rice milk, apple, tahini (!), quinoa and a house made vegan protein mix- All for $8, which is pretty reasonable given the prices in Telluride can be a bit out of hand. I love this place after a great workout, mountain run, hike or tennis when I'm in Telluride.
La Cocina de Luz- My other staple in Telluride is the Mexican spot- La Cocina de Luz. They certainly have great options for everyone but I am a huge fan of the vegan plate, which has just about everything you'd hope to get in a Mexican restaurant. The salsa bar is also on point! The veggies are fresh and everything is prepared just right. The outdoor space is an ideal setting to have a meal. Sometimes the line can be pretty serious here but it moves fast so don't be discouraged! Overall, La Cocina is a great look if your in Telluride looking for a healthy options for dinner or lunch.
