Optimal Health Center’s providers make a lot of recommendations to patients regarding healthy eating and treating food as medicine. They stress the importance of whole, unprocessed, organically grown foods. Helping our patients find local resources for healthy lifestyles is a big part of what we do and we’re always delighted when we find one we can share.
Heirloom Craft Kitchen in Indio is a welcome addition to the Desert and especially to the Eastern half of the Valley. We had an opportunity to enjoy a meal there the other night and think our local readers may enjoy it as much as we did.
As a diner, you’ll feel like you’re in your favorite neighborhood joint – comfortable, casual, relaxed, and friendly. You have the choice to sit at booths and tables, inside or on the patio, and enjoy friendly table service; or you can select from the grab n’ go case if you’re on the move. Every surface is impeccably clean and inviting, without feeling sterile.
Just like your favorite neighborhood joint, just about anyone, regardless of dietary preference, will find something delicious on the menu. Small and large plates, as well as sandwiches and salads are planned with special attention to local, organic produce and grass fed/free range meats. You can choose gluten-free and vegetarian options from every section of the menu and you vegans out there will enjoy an entire Vegan Friendly menu. As parents, you’ll be impressed there is a healthier kid menu with dishes kids will actually eat.
When you’re eating healthy and responsibly it’s so much easier to actually enjoy a dessert without feeling guilty about it – so be sure to check out the bakery items – we split a strawberry margarita cupcake and loved it.
