We are so excited for this new franchise “Lyfe Kitchen” to launch today in Lone Tree in the Park Meadows Mall. The food is healthy but doesn’t taste healthy (in a good way). Each item we’ve had the privileged to sample in advance of the opening has blown the socks off of what you thought “Healthy Food” is going to taste like.
LYFE KITCHEN (Love Your Food Everyday)
After speaking to the owners Rachel and DJ Mitchell, Chef Bringardener and the entire launch staff that was brought in from California and Chicago you get the sense that these people really care about what they are doing… bringing healthy nutritious food to the masses at a price you can afford. No longer will moms at the mall be forced to feed their children food court high calorie low quality food.. just head past Crate and Barrel on the East end of the mall and feed your family REAL food. They strive to use organic and locally sourced food whenever possible, they grow herbs right by the front door so you know those are fresh. There are 3 menus to choose from Vegan/Vegetarian, Gluten Free and I EAT EVERYTHING… Each dish is marked Vegan, Gluten Free or Contains Nuts on the Everything menu.

Meet JEREMY BRINGARDNER – Chef Bringardner & Rachel Mitchell
EXECUTIVE CHEF at LYFE KITCHEN RESTAURANT
Chef Jeremy honed his craft under luminary chefs Charlie Trotter, Bill Kim, and Jean Joho. A graduate of the highly acclaimed Culinary Nutrition program of Johnson & Wales University, Chef Jeremy captains the teams of LYFE Kitchen chefs in Palo Alto and Culver City, ensuring that each dish is bursting with flavor and fresh ingredients.
We got a chance to meet him and talk about his passions for food.. Nutrient dense, high flavor at a price point that everyone can afford. All entree’s are 600 calories or less and 1000 mg of sodium or less. We also learned a little trick he shares in the video below for making smoothies. Freeze your cucumber and your bananas and other fruit so you don’t have to add ice to give you that classic smoothie texture.
