I’ve been curious about True Food Kitchen, one of the newest restaurants in the rapidly-growing Mosaic District of Fairfax. True Food Kitchen follows the Anti-Inflammatory Diet of Dr. Andrew Weil, which sounds appealing, but to be honest, I wasn’t sure what that mean. I met with the restaurant’s general manager, Matt Connors, to photograph the food and learn more about the concept.
I learned that their meals, while healthy, aren’t necessarily meant for weight-loss. It’s more a part of a general guide for healthy living. Dr. Weil recommends eating a wide variety of fresh foods, minimizing consumption of processed and fast food, and consuming an abundance of fruits and vegetables.
To me, that means colorful food that looks gorgeous in photos! (It was also delicious to eat!)
