True Foods

If you’ve read many of my previous blog posts before (which you probably have), you’ll know that I love discovering foods that are both healthy, but still tasty. It’s a win win! Well, I ran into one of those discovery moments just the other day at the True Foods restaurant in the Stanford Shopping mall.

True Foods is a supposedly “trending” restaurant that serves many different types of delicious foods, just with a healthy twist. I saw sandwiches, burgers, pizzas, salads, wraps, grilled meats, and more. There’s something for everyone! As I took a look at the menu, I started noticed some of these “twists”. Say you were to order a sandwich. Instead of french fries, you could either get a kale salad or sweet potato cubes. Or if you got the burger, than the bun would be wheat based.

That night, I tried the Ancient Grains bowl because my mom had ordered it before and thought that it was really flavorful and filling. I got really excited when I saw it coming to the table because I knew, just from looking at it, that it was one of those healthy-tasty foods! At the bottom of the bowl, you’ll find, well, ancient grains. Now I’m not really a big brown rice or quinoa fan, but those two ingredients actually tasted really good with the rest of the bowl. On top of the “ancient grains”, there was pre-roasted yams drizzled in miso sesame sauce, grilled mushrooms, fresh avocados, sweet onions, tender chicken (doesn’t come with the bowl; order on the side) crunchy green beans, and a spectacular green sauce/dressing they brought everything to life. I was decently hungry that night, but wow, I was full after only half of the Ancient Grains bowl.

You all should definitely try True Foods someday. You’ll be amazed to taste what a healthy yet delicious food tastes like. Healthy, delicious, and true!
