True Food Kitchen Naples Florida | 322/365 Things to Do
Last Sunday, after church, I decided to have lunch with my friend Denise at True Food Kitchen. I always wanted to try True Food Kitchen since several friends had spoken about their wholesome food. The restaurant was pretty busy due to the after church crowd, however our wait was not too bad. After a short while, we were seated in an open space close by the window. We had a choice to sit at a table, outside, or to sit at the bar.
The reason for choosing True Food Kitchen for lunch was because I heard that their food is modeled after Dr. Andrew Weil suggestions on healthy food. Dr. Andrew Weil wrote several books regarding optimal health. I had seen Dr. Weil several times on TV and I had read his book: “Eating well for optimum health”. I was very intrigued to try the food at the restaurant. Originally, I believed that Dr. Weil had opened a restaurant in Naples, but after speaking to our waiter, I found out that their menu was based on the principles of Dr.Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet.
Finally after studying the menu for a while it was time to order. We ordered Hummus, Kale Guacamole, and a Margherita Pizza from the vegetable menu. We decided to order several dishes so we could try as many different foods as possible. The Herb Hummus was garnished with cucumbers, organic tomatoes, feta, olives, and we received a side pita bread. Everything was very fresh and tasty. Additionally, we ordered Kale Guacamole which was made of kale, avocado, cilantro, roasted sunflower seats, and came with a side of pita chips. And to top off our experience we ordered a Margherita Pizza with fresh crushed tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil. Everything tasted delicious! I am sure that I will go back very soon to try their Butternut Squash Pizza.
True Food Kitchen is located at the Waterside Shops (5375 Tamiami Trail, Suite 15, Naples, FL 34108)
