Ladies, take a break from all that downward dogging, aggressive cycling and graceful plié-ing to hear us out.
We’ve found a new way to be healthy that doesn’t require a gym membership.
Introducing True Food Kitchen, an Arizona-based chain that features a menu centered on Dr. Andrew Weil’s famous anti-inflammatory diet. (Dr. Weil’s plan places a premium on fruits, veggies and whole grains, and all but banishes processed foods.)
The real surprise? The food at this soon-to-open Preston Center spot actually tastes good.
Healthy highlights include an herb hummus served with pita, tomato, onion and feta cheese ($9), a teriyaki rice bowl with Asian vegetables, avocado and sesame seeds ($14 to $16) and a chicken-sausage pizza with gluten-free crust ($13).
But the chicken chopped salad ($14) really won us over. At first glance, it’s a deceptively simple amalgam of field greens and diced chicken. But add dates, cranberries, jicama, Manchego cheese, Marcona almonds and farro to the mix, and we’re talking one out-of-sight salad that’s a perfectly satisfying counterbalance to the upcoming holiday season’s heavier fare.
