Food for Life Supreme partners with the University of Art and Logistics of Civilization (UALC) in hope of reversing unhealthy eating by providing organic, healthy spins on comfort foods. The eclectic menu, based on the book Food for Life: Transitional Recipes for Food Combining and Blood Typing, encourages creative, healthy eating and attentiveness to blood type. Stick a fork in the Trinity Salad, a trifecta of red onion, tomatoes, and croutons topped with Twinnette dressing ($3–$5), or sink fork-shaped teeth into the nonigneous Active Volcano sandwich, a preservative-free bread base that overflows with chopped whiting, freedom sauce, grilled peppers, onions, tomatoes, and melted cheese ($7). Entrees include the Croaker dinner, homemade sliced bread topped with bonefish and served with a choice of two sides, such as hush puppies, mac 'n' cheese, or mustard greens ($12).

- Healthy eating at Food For Life Supreme is more than good carbs, good fats and useful calories: It is a foundation for upbeat, abundant life and connectedness among neighborhoods; it is food as both art and medicine. – Sheryl Cornett, Independent Weekly
- I like this place a lot- it's takeout only and looks awful from the exterior, but the food is REALLY good in all respects- quality, quantity, and value. – Mohammed N., Yelp, 11/29/09
