“Stealth Health” Restaurants Quietly Offer Delicious – And Healthy – Meals

April 23, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A new California fast-casual restaurant chain – LYFE Kitchen – uses little salt, and no butter, cream, white flour, high-fructose corn syrup, trans fats, additives or preservatives. But it still manages to churn out delicious low-calorie foods made with organic and local ingredients, without any preaching. It seems to be the opposite of healthy food – “tofu, brown rice, low-fat anything” – which has a reputation for being “the opposite of delicious”. In the restaurant industry, the kinds of meals LYFE Kitchen is serving is part of the “stealth health” trend: good tasting foods that are also healthy and nutritious, if a little pricey. An ironic twist on the story: LYFE was founded by former McDonald’s executives.
