Are you on track to hit your health goals this year? When you are starving and its’ been a long day at work, nobody wants to go home and cook. Takeout is calling and it seems so easy to just order up your fav burger and fries, pizza, or Chinese from DoorDash or GrubHub. You DESERVE it after all, right? Before you know it you’ve eaten an entire pizza, drank a whole bottle of wine, and it’s 11 p.m. and you’ve been Netflixin’ it hard for the last 4 hours. Not exactly the time you want to start thinking about that workout class you HAD planned on going to the next day.
WHAT IF you could set yourself up for success? Yes, food delivery is easier than ever and pizza sounds soooo good. And I’m not saying pizza is bad (it’s one of my faves) but if you are noticing a pattern that every Tuesday night your best attempts at living a healthy lifestyle are going down the drain, maybe it’s time to make a change. If you lived close to your favorite healthy place — and there are tons of them in Dallas – think about how easy it would be to swing by after work. Or late at night. If healthy stuff is within reach and affordable, wouldn’t you go for it?
Thankfully some of our favorite Dallas Apartments for rent are literally on top of our favorite healthy options. Whole Foods, Central Market…and even the FARMERS MARKET. Literally fresh food just minutes from your doorstep. These are apartments that could literally, make your life healthier.
Well first of all, Gables McKinney Ave takes their outdoor spaces seriously. They are GORGEOUS. The roof deck. The outdoor kitchen. The coffee bar. The HEATED SALTWATER POOL. omg. The residences have beautiful white quartz countertops, a wine refrigerator, and even washers and dryers in every apartment home. From studios to townhomes, Gables has you covered! The best part is that Whole Foods Market is literally on the ground floor of this apartment community. They have FREE grocery delivery to your front door! Eating healthy has never been easier. Grab a healthy snack or dinner (these are 18 of the best Whole Foods items), or check out their extensive salad bar area. Studios start around $1500 so you best check it out!
There is so much storage in these beautiful apartment homes! It’s the little urban design touches that really get our foodie hearts pitter-pattering. We love the pantries and open concept design of each home. Studios are affordable starting at just $1,175. Take a stroll just outside your apartment to the Dallas Farmer’s Market. Open daily, you can get your hands on all kinds of fresh fruits, veggies and local wares. You can feel good about supporting the local community AND commit to be healthier. There’s just something about buying fresh fruit and veggies that gets you in the mood to cook something healthy, organic, and delicious. (Check the schedule frequently for all kinds of fun special events like The Boho Market coming up in March!)
WHO DOESN’T LOVE TRADER JOE’S?? The wine. The pizza dough. (Hey, pizza can be healthy when it’s homemade!) Fresh flowers. Happy employees. Every flavor of hummus you could imagine. Going to Trader Joe’s ALWAYS puts me in a good mood. It’s just a happy place! How awesome would it be to literally live across the street from one? With all their made-to-go options, living nearby can make healthy living a breeze. At the Preston Hollow Village apartment community, you’ll have easy access to TJ’s anytime you want. Right now, on select apartments you can get 8 weeks for FREE. There are two pools, the location is perfect, and we simply adore this little village at Walnut Hill and 75. Studios all the way up to 3 bedrooms are ready and waiting!
Many a weekend night I’ve been caught just wandering around Central Market. It’s a fun place to hang out even if you don’t really know what groceries you need. The atmosphere is so welcoming and they are SO helpful! Need a recipe? Need advice? The foodie experts at Central Market are always ready to offer tips and ideas. And if you haven’t taken a cooking class here (hello, date night or GNO!) you are missing out! We love it. The Atwood Apartments in Dallas are literally just a block away. These gorgeous brand new apartments are the stuff of our dreams! We love the rooftop lounge, the TWO dog parks, the yoga studio. You’ve GOT to see the interiors – stunning backsplashes, modern chrome accents. It’s so fresh and clean. Choose from tons of floorplan options that start at just $1160.
