A healthy lifestyle can be as sweet as candy!

Friday Foodie Review: Litebite

Now that I am an official SF Bay Area resident (so loooong LALA Land!) I’ve been making an effort to lay down some foodie roots in the North. I like to think I know a lot about the LA food scene however,  although I grew up in Nor Cal, I’ve recently realized I’m a bit clueless when it comes to San Francisco! That neeeeeeds to change.

I am now the newest member of the San Francisco Professional Food Society, Hollah! So I thought I would celebrate via this dear bloggy-blog of mine by sharing my first SF food review!

LA is teeeeeeming with healthy restaurants and clean-eating options; juice bars at every corner, chia this, kale that. I’ve found the health message in SF to be a bit more subtle, or maybe a better way to phrase it is different.

At first I was hesitant to make the move, I mean I’m a health food blogger I NEED to be in LA (is what I thought.) But I’ve found the SF health-food hunt to be a welcome challenge. There are so many establishments that have dedicated their time and practice to their values situated in health and well-being-and not just to be a part of a fast-moving money train. The Bay Area is the birthplace of the farm-to-table movement for all sakes! Hii Alice Waters, can I be you?!

Hello LiteBite welcome to my world.

This SF foodie paradise is the solution to any healthy-eaters lazy day. You all know by now that I love my kitchen…I could probably sleep in it…but even I have those days, the ones that last the longest, suck the energy from your soul & leave you with just fragments of your mind and your self. Those are the days that you’re probably not so eager to get cookin’ – but it’s for the best because you probably shouldn’t be anywhere near open flame. Ya feel me? Eeek!

LiteBite is a gourmet prepared food market that makes healthy eating convenient. Grab n’ go or dine in & stay as long as your little heart desires, at LiteBite it’s their mission to make life easy, yummy, and a little bit healthier…and who doesn’t want that? LiteBite has selections for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert & even smoothie time (because we all know the smoothie obsession is real) which really does warrant the question, how long can I actually stay?

I was lucky enough to get to try a lot of good stuff and let me tell you it really is some good stuff.

To die for: Kale Salad with yams

You can taste all the love that goes into the planning and prep of their food. And listing the ingredients, nutrition facts, weight watchers points & calories on each item makes it easy for the health-conscious customer!- Don’t worry none of the calorie counts on these foods will make you want to scream and run in the other direction!
