Local Foods – Hit or Miss?

So…the Houston Magazine is my newest passion, thanks to Saf, I spent nearly one hour reading about local food joints. First & foremost, for those of you who are not privileged to be a Houstonian 😉 (don’t worry, no one’s perfect!), we are sincerely and quite candidly one of the BEST foodie towns in this country, hands down!!! And luckily, there is no near-term shortage of up & coming tasty treats to indulge in at your pleasure. So yesterday evening, we made our way to Local Foods in Upper Kirby, offering locally-sourced, healthy ingredient- abundant choices on the menu. It had been on my radar for a while plus the weather was Houston-perfect as in cool, breezy, you know, in the 80s…

Honest opinion, it’s a GREAT joint for healthy eating if that’s what you’re game for. In fact, if you’re like me who prefers to eat healthy throughout the week & then binge during weekends as if my body is somehow programmed to ignore it, this is the perfect weeknight getaway. It does lack a certain “kick” or as I like to refer to it as the good “fat”…but nevertheless, don’t miss out on it while the weather is still perky!
