True Food Kitchen

Happy Valentines Day everybody!  For lunch, I took Gina to this new restaurant in Newport Beach.  It's a restaurant based off of Dr. Andrew Weil's anti-inflammatory food pyramid (below), which you can also download from his web site.

Oh my gosh!!!!  We couldn't believe how delicious this place was...and SO healthy!  I had Hummus with veggies (instead of pita) and a Farm Vegetable salad with Spicy Chili Sesame dressing.  Gina had the Tempeh Bacon BLT and the Sesame Ginger Tofu Lettuce Wraps.  Everything tasted SO fresh and was bursting with flavor!  
This is not a Vegan restaurant.  There is fish, poultry, and beef on the menu; plus a huge selection of cocktails and beer.  These types of restaurants have failed miserably in the past, remember Skinny Haven back in the 80s?  I can't recommend this place enough, I even think we're going back again tomorrow.  If you're ever in Newport Beach or Arizona (Biltmore, Scottsdale, Tucson) you HAVE to go to True Food Kitchen.  Everything on the menu was Eat What I Created approved!
