Eating healthy doesn’t mean that flavor has to be sacrificed, though butterfingers are best kept stowed inside nibble-proof mittens. Indulge in low-blood-pressure decadence with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of healthy fare at Food For Life Supreme in Harlem.
Food for Life Supreme, headed by The University of the Art and Logistics of Civilization (UALC), aims to reverse unhealthy eating by providing holistic spins on tasty 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 to improve constitution and expedite online-dating questionnaires. Start with a sampling of scurvy-stomping carrot-cheddar fries, battered and embellished in cheddar cheese, sour cream, and nautical bacon chips made out of thinly sliced salmon ($7). Ride into a Sunset salad, which lets crispy asian strips, avocado, and batter-fried salmon roam in a leafy glen of mixed greens ($13). Bella burgers load marinated portabella mushrooms, mozzarella, and veggies onto moist baked-on-site supreme buns ($6), and fish-feast entrees such as the House Special marry a fried or grilled whiting fillet to side suitors including quinoa, garlic mashed potatoes, and creamy mac 'n' cheese ($12.50). For early risers or graveyard shifters with broken watches, breakfast is served all day. Crisp Full Moon waffles ($5) or egg-stuffed breakfast burritos ($7) are prepared regardless of the sun's place in the sky.
The Food For Life Supreme café is prized for its outstanding atmosphere and service from a team of helpful servers that consider themselves perpetual students in the school of hospitality. The artesian-style painted tables hungrily await the heartily portioned hot plates, and the positive vibes lead echolocating diners back to the colorful art-deco eatery.
For a side of social consciousness with your entree, check out the Food For Life Supreme scholarship fund, which provides assistance to deserving students, innovative academic programs, diverse cocurricular activities, and maintenance of the UALC campus.
