I met up with a friend last weekend in West Village (for those of you reading out of city or state- it’s an area of Dallas near downtown). My friend had been raving about this place, Lyfe Kitchen, so I could not wait to try it out. I love finding new restuarants that are both healthy and delicious so am very excited to spotlight Lyfe Kitchen on What to Eat Wednesday today. If you live in or around Dallas, you may want to check it out.
The first thing I really liked about this place was all of the options available. If you have Celiac disease and prefer gluten free, they have a whole separate menu for you. Really cool! And same goes for those that eat vegan or vegetarian. I chose off of the Everything menu and it was early so we got to order breakfast. Breakfast foods are my absolute favorite. I usually order some type of egg dish, but this time I branched out a bit.
I ordered the Greek yogurt bowl with blueberries and pomegranate chia seeds, along with a carrot zucchini walnut muffin. Both were fabulous! I had never had any type of carrot or zucchini muffin before so this caught my eye. Wow! I need to start making those if I can find a good recipe. I am not a huge fan of carrot cake, but carrot in a muffin is a different story.
My friend ordered Art’s Oatmeal Start, which was steel-cut oats with dried cranberries, toasted almonds, Greek yogurt, and pure maple syrup. She liked her meal too. It did not disappoint!
Another thing I really liked about Lyfe Kitchen is that they display the calorie and sodium content next to each meal item, as well as what is in the dish below the meal item. This shows honesty in a company. They are not afraid to show you the amount of calories in each dish. You don’t have to count calories (I sure don’t), but sometimes knowing the calorie content of a dish can help you make a more informed decision. Calories add up and can surprise you at times.
I love that Dallas is adding more and more healthy restaurants to the mix! I will be back to Lyfe kitchen in the future for lunch or dinner.
What about you? Have you ever been to Lyfe Kitchen?
Eat well, friends!
