Eating Healthy on Bald Head Island


Eating Healthy on Bald Head Island
With New Year’s Eve in the rearview mirror, it’s time to start planning your winter or spring getaway to Bald Head Island, North Carolina’s most beautiful island community. New Year’s Eve celebrations usually include an array of finger foods, flutes of expensive champagne, the highly-anticipated ball drop, and, of course, resolutions. One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is eating healthier, which goes hand-in-hand with exercising more. Eating healthy on vacation is easier said than done because exotic foods and tropical drinks are too alluring to pass up. The most effective way to eat healthy while vacationing with Bald Head Island Limited is by cooking your own meals and researching local restaurants. Our luxurious North Carolina rentals are the perfect alternative to your run-of-the-mill hotel. And many of our Bald Head Island rentals feature a chef’s kitchen, so you’ll have no problem sticking to your New Year’s resolution.

Cook Your Own Meals

Hopefully, you already have some go-to recipes when you’re in the mood to eat healthily. We recommend seeking out Maritime Market for fresh meat, seafood, and all other necessary ingredients. Maritime Market offers grocery delivery, so you don’t have to spend an hour perusing for the best local specialties. They have live Maine lobsters, clams, oysters, fresh locally-caught fish, and lean chicken breast. Your chef’s kitchen includes everything needed to create a healthy culinary masterpiece. Here are some of our guests’ favorite Bald Head Island meals:

  • ●     Mahi-mahi tacos with homemade slaw
  • ●     Shrimp and whole grain grits
  • ●     Seasoned chicken breast with whole grain rice and asparagus
  • ●     Blackened snapper fillets with green beans and quinoa
  • ●     Boiled lobster with corn on the cob
  • ●     Roasted beet and goat cheese salad

Best Health-Conscious Dining Options

Of course, you’re not required to cook inside one of our lavish gourmet kitchens. The island has several health-conscious restaurants that can satisfy any diet. Across the marina from one of our prized properties, the harborfront Twin Peaks, rests Mojo’s on the Harbor. Mojo’s is one of Bald Head Island’s best waterfront dining experiences, and it’s within walking distance of popular Old Baldy Lighthouse. Mojo’s has several healthy, local delicacies including BBQ shrimp, spicy blue crab, wild Alaskan salmon, and pistachio-crusted mahi-mahi. The Bald Head Island Club has several dining options that are perfect for lunch or dinner after 18 holes of championship golf. The Grille has pan-seared scallops, stuffed portabello, and numerous fresh salads. Visit our website for a complete list of local restaurants.

Your island retreat should include not only delicious and healthy local cuisine but also beach games, nature strolls, and summer house relaxation. We welcome guests from all across the globe who are looking for a unique, luxurious alternative to typical beach rentals.
