During lunch, I almost always eat out but I have a battle every single day. I’m always asking my fiance, “where are we going for lunch?” I never want fast food but I never want to go somewhere and eat a heavy meal that is going to make me feel gross all day long. I love places that offer a variety of items, from healthy to heavy foods. I had a chance to stop by True Food Kitchen located in The Plaza at Preston Center (across from Sprinkles Cupcakes) for lunch and was pleasantly surprised with their healthy menu.
True Food Kitchen’s menu is based on Dr. Andrew Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet. I had no idea what that was, until I went home and did some research. Dr. Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet is a blueprint for a lifetime of optimum nutrition. It proves that simple changes in how you eat can help counteract chronic inflammation, a root cause of many serious diseases. I’m not one to jump on diets or try anything too crazy, but I love that True Food Kitchen has incorporated this diet into their menu and you can’t even tell!
I highly recommend starting your meal off with a refresher. There a large selection of fruit, berry, herbal and natural soda drink blends to choose from. We tried the Green Arnie (Matcha Green Tea and Honey Lemonade) and Hangover Rx (Coconut Water Pineapple, Vanilla and Orange Juice), both were delicious. The hangover tasted kind of like a pineapple cool whip!
For starters, we tried the Albacore tataki. The fish tasted so fresh and practically melted in your mouth.
For our lunch, he had Grass Fed Bison Burger served on a Flax Seed bun served with a Kale salad. I opted for the Grass Fed Beef Street Tacos. The mean was so tender and had the best flavor. Sustainably-raised bison is higher in omega-3s, protein and lower in fat than traditional beef.
Not only was our meal delicious, but our server was more than attentive and I loved all of his input on the menu. If you’re looking for great food, head over to True Food Kitchen.
