Oteo Restaurant


A few days ago, I had the opportunity to be involved in a private blogger event at Oteo Restaurant in Lindon, Utah. It is one of my favorite places to dine. The food is clean and whole and absolutely fabulous. Not only does it satisfy my particular palette, but the food is in harmony with my healthylicious program. Mosi and his family run this restaurant and prove to be gracious hosts as well as excellent restauranteers and culinary wonders.


Kale Salad with a touch of sweetness and a delicious, refreshing start to any meal at Oteo.
Ceviche is a seafood appetizer. This particular Ceviche at Oteo features red onion, cilantro, shrimp, lobster, and sweet mango and red onions. It was fabulous!
Blackened Salmon wrapped in a sweet potato with adobo olive oil is Paleo goodness at its best.
Roasted Chicken Tinga in a yam cup is topped with red cabbage, white onions, and red radish. This was a light, tasty, savory dish.

 Cronut with Custard for dessert.
 Bloggers relish in the cuisine.

Drew Manning was one of the celebs at the event. He has a book out about imposing a rare journey of choosing to go from fit to fat to fit and has written a book about his experience filling his body with food that does not do a body good.

You may have also seen Drew on Extreme Weight Loss. He was a guest on this television reality series sharing his new found perspective.
