In a crunch? Ditch the fast food. Try Energy Kitchen, the newly-opened restaurant in Suniland Plaza, offering healthy and diverse options, in a cheerful and clean atmosphere.
“I love eating healthy. Energy Kitchen is different, because in addition to being healthy, it tastes good,” said Alexandra Golovac, Energy Kitchen manager.
All of the selections on the menu are below 500 calories. Plus, everything has nutritional value. There are no “empty calories;” the food is all low in fat and high in protein. According to Golovac, items are all prepared fresh daily. Employees arrive prior to opening to enforce their motto, “fast food does not have to be fat food.”
The fast food makeover strives to give patrons a quick meal that tastes great and that they can feel good about. Nothing is fried– not even the french fries. Weighing in at only 140 calories, they taste shockingly similar to regular french fries, possibly even better, knowing that they are a healthier choice.
One of the most popular items is the Supreme Sirloin burger. Half the calories and fat of a fast food burger, many say that it tastes nearly identical to one. Some other signature items include the Chicken Fajita wrap and the Kitchen Chopped salad. Additionally, buns and wraps are whole weat and high in fiber , and salad dressings are fat free.
All baked goods are made with applesauce instead of sugar or sweeteners, and are infused with protein powder. The protein-fortified and fat free frozen yogurt is a big hit, with one serving being only 100 calories.
“It is absolutely delicious. It tastes like a candy bar,” said senior Stephanie Hernandez.
Another plus is the free delivery, making the healthy eating that much more accessible. The wide variety on the menu is appealing to all “eaters,” from vegetarians to meat-lovers.
Take a trip to Energy Kitchen. It tastes good. And, it feels good.
