True Food Kitchen is expanding into Pasadena with an opening this past week. For the uninitiated, True Food Kitchen is centered on the teachings of Dr. Andrew Weil, a physician that has been selling products for years that help boost awareness about health in order to help people live healthier lives. Over the past several years, True Food Kitchen restaurants have been opening all over the country, and Pasadena is the latest city to welcome the whole foods centric place in.
At the core of its message is that what you eat matters and True Food Kitchen is just there to make things a little easier. Knowing that not everyone that wants a meal also wants a yoga lesson, True Food Kitchen has a variety of dishes and deals that just happen to be healthy choices. Dr. Weil has been prescribing and writing about his anti-inflammatory diet (inflammation in the body is thought to be responsible for causing diseases) for years and many of the recipes for the meals of True Food Kitchen adhere to those guidelines.
True Food Kitchen is also highly cognizant of food trends and so the menu is filled with vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free options along with juices and bowls. But because the idea is to make “true food” available and enticing to the masses, you can also find meat dishes filled with chicken, steak and turkey as well as an extensive selection of beer, wine and cocktails.
Because each meal should be delicious as well as nutritious, there are also brunch options ranging from breakfast classics like blueberry muffins and huevos rancheros to modern egg sandwiches as well as lunch dishes. And because it’s never too early to start eating healthy, you’ll find a kid’s menu.
To further prove that eating well doesn’t have to mean giving up on favorites, there’s even a dessert menu—although chocoholics may find it somewhat lacking.
What is nice is that all parts of the menu include something for every diet restriction, whether you’re lactose intolerant or suffer from Celiac disease. And because it’s doctor-inspired, you can eat as though you have a personal nutritionist.
True Food Kitchen is said to open this fall, so with a soft opening party this week, the offical opening day should be any time now. Look for it at 168 West Colorado Blvd.
