Healthy Fast Food-A new chain is trying

by

An article about LYFE KITCHEN by Emily Bryson York of the Chicago Tribune cites evidence such as the success of Panera Bread, Chipotle, and Subway as examples of a healthy eating trend. Panera’s focus is only on whole grains versus refined grains an important but of limited scope while Subway has a lot more bad red meat and processed meat than good bread and greens. They also cite the interest in healthy food books, T.V. programs, and hi-end restaurants. This chain has heavy management including MacDonald’s ex-CEO Mike Roberts as its CEO. They have included pasture-raised beef from Niman’s Ranch. They have also brought in a world famous Vegan Chef Tal Ronan to design meatless food. They have the support of Oprah Winfrey who is an important advocate. Their plan is to start in Palo Alto California in August 2011 and quickly become a National chain. We wish them luck. This article does not mention the environmental issues which healthy food begins to address and which along with reduced animal abuse would enhance their message.
