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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
