Yes Julie with The Barre Code Plano set up a private tasting for our team’s challenge finishers at Lyfe Kitchen in Plano. They gave us a peak at all of the new favorites on their spring menu. We had a great time and ate a ton of wonderful things.

The drinks

Lyfe Kitchen has several beers and wines on tap along with a variety of non-alcoholic favorites too.  Between the cucumber mint Lyfe water and fresh squeezed lemonades and orange juice, there are plenty of thirst-quenching options.

If lemonade is your drink of choice, try the ginger pomegranate lemonade.  They have created the perfect balance of sweet, tart, and a hint of ginger.

The food

Lyfe Kitchen’s menu contains vegan, vegetarian and healthy favorites that are perfectly balanced.  There is something for everyone on their menu.  Everything is under $20, so it’s great for the budget too.

Soups

Both the butternut squash and the sweet corn chowder are the perfect starter to any meal.

They make the corn chowder with cashew cream, so it is gluten free and vegan.  The butternut squash soup is made with maple coconut cream, so it is also vegan and gluten free.

 Salads

I have always been a fan of the quinoa crunch bowl.  It has a fireman’s hot sauce and chipotle vinaigrette that gives it a little kick.  The crunchy vegetables, avocado, hummus, and quinoa enhances all of the different textures and work together to create a balanced dish.

My favorite salad at Lyfe Kitchen is the seasonal market salad.  Add roasted Brussels to anything and I am a fan.  It contains kale and romaine lettuce, butternut squash, nuts, feta, and pomegranate-Dijon vinaigrette.

Main entrees

We tried the Parmesan crusted chicken and herb roasted salmon.  Between the two dishes, I liked the salmon best, but the chicken was good too.

They coat the herb roasted salmon in a basil vinaigrette, and serve it with quinoa and veggies.  It’s tender and practically melts in your mouth.

On the other hand, the Parmesan crusted chicken is a bit crunchy, since it’s coated and baked. The smoky pepper aioli gives it a bit of spice without overwhelming the dish. You can’t go wrong with either of these meals.

Desserts

My favorite part of the meal is dessert.  Lyfe Kitchen keeps it simple with cookies and parfaits on their menu.  Order a fresh baked chocolate chip or ginger spice cookie.

If cookies aren’t your thing, choose from one of their two delicious parfaits.  The chocolate nut crunch parfait is made with chocolate mousse, strawberries, maple coconut cream and topped with nuts.

    This place sounds amazing! I love that they have a simple dessert menu–I get overwhelmed with too many choices! And those soups sound incredible… I’ve been digging corn chowder lately (I just had my first spoonful and now I’m hooked!).

      Yes! I love desserts, but sometimes less is more.

    This is my kind of restaurant. Everything looks fresh and delicious. I know my hubby would love the ginger pomegranate lemonade because he loves lemonade. And I would love the Parmesan crusted chicken.

      Yes! That lemonade was the bomb.

    I am vegetarian so I would love this place — although awesome that it has meat as well for hubby and friends. Would love to get a Lyfe on Long Island! You get the best opps through this group I love reading about them.

    Everything looks delicious! I love finding places that take such care in providing the healthiest ingredients but done in more of an artisan way. Great find!
