I was so excited to try True Food Kitchen in Santa Monica over the weekend. I have heard so many great things about this restaurant and they did not disappoint. Everything I ate was delicious and I can’t wait to go back. True Food Kitchen’s motto is Simple, Fresh & Pure. Even though there healthy menu is packed with nutrients, vegetables, whole grains & proteins they never sacrifice flavor. True Food Kitchen’s entire menu is centered on the principles of Dr. Andrew Weil’s Anti-Inflammatory Diet & Food Pyramid. True Food Kitchen is located in the new Santa Monica Place Mall. I know parking in Santa Monica is a pain, but True Food offers free valet parking!
I started with the Medicine Man antioxidant blast (I ran into my friend Corinne as I was walking in and she recommended it so I gave it a try). This refreshing drink is packed with olivello juice, pomegranate juice, cranberry juice, black tea, soda water & blueberries. After my yummy drink I had the shiitake & tofu lettuce cups made with ginger, cashews, & toasted garlic. Last I enjoyed the “TLT” sandwich with tempeh, lettuce, tomato, avocado, mayo, & whole grain bread. All sandwiches are served with a kale salad and sweet potato hash! YUM!!!
Everything was D-lish and I highly recommend this new spot!
