True Food Kitchen is magically delicious

Zach and I are kind of in love with True Food Kitchen in Dallas.

True Food Kitchen's squash pie

We went for our “date night” after trying it a few weeks ago for lunch. The first time we visited, it wasn’t especially busy. The service and food was awesome. We decided to come back again for dinner sometime.

It was much more crowded Friday night, of course, but well worth the hour wait. (I think we only actually waited 45 minutes.) Zach enjoyed an Old Fashioned while I tried the Medicine Man. I had sneezing fits all afternoon and evening, which magically ceased halfway through my drink. Medicine Man, indeed!

The Panang Curry was so delicious the first time we visited. So I ordered it again. I know, I know. I’ll try something different next time. Maybe. Zach ordered the Miso Glazed Black Cod. I had no idea cod could be that good, y’all.

For dessert, I ordered the Squash Pie with coconut whipped cream. It. Was. Amazing. The pie was perfect and the coconut whipped cream kind of blew my mind. Be still, my dairy-free heart. Zach got the Chia Seed Pudding.

I know so many people who say they want more health-conscious, food-allergy-friendly restaurant options in Dallas. I hope True Food continues to do well. Actually, I hope it does so well they open more locations in the area. Perhaps one in Addison? Fingers crossed! Now if only we could afford to eat there every week.

my new fave snack food

Enjoy Life was kind enough to send me boxes of their new soft baked bars. Holy deliciousness! I tried four flavors: S’mores, Chocolate SunButter, Cinnamon Bun and Cherry Cobbler. These are the first snack bars I’ve ever had that were actually soft. Oh, and they are gluten-free, verified non-GMO and free of the eight major allergens? Nailed it!

These arrived amid a random s’more craving I had been harboring for weeks. When you can’t eat dairy, s’mores cravings are hard to accommodate. So my favorite of the four flavors was, not suprisingly, S’mores. But Chocolate SunButter came in a close second. I’ve been stashing the bars in my diaper bag for those times when I manage to remember everything I need to leave the house, get in the car, and suddenly realize I haven’t eaten yet. It happens. These aren’t meal replacements, but they have prevented my hangry more than once. Lol.

I’m a huge fan of Enjoy Life foods. I wouldn’t share them with you, if I didn’t love them. Check out the recipes on their site for some truly drool worthy goodness.
