I’ve never met Katie Cavuto Boyle before, but from everything I’ve read, she’s one heck of an entrepreneur—and, uh, from what else I’ve gleaned, a high-ranking dietary and culinary guru.
This past Wednesday, the registered dietician/personal chef—and season-five Next Food Network Star finalist—went prime time with her newest venture, Healthy Bites To-Go. This Philadelphia market/café is dedicated to providing health-minded and eco-conscious foodies with Boyle’s creative take on “green cuisine.” The market will serve as not only an outlet for an array of tempting products that are either locally sourced or coveted nationally/internationally, but also the stage for her home-delivery service, catering and cooking-class offerings.
The café menu is not yet available, but expect local, organic, sustainable and fresher-than-fresh soups, sandwiches, wraps, frittatas, baked goods and more, plus prepared meals from the market.
From the looks of past “Meal Delivery” entrées—orange sesame salmon with roasted asparagus and brown rice; herb-rubbed beef tenderloin with edamame and green bean salad; monk fish with spinach, saffron and tomato broth, and brown rice; spring herb halibut with veggie rice, zucchini and sweet peas—all crafted with an eye on fat, calories, cholesterol, carbs and other dietary dangers, this could be the perfect meal plan for shedding a few pounds before bathing-suit season and saving up time to hit the gym rather than the kitchen and sink.
If anyone’s been, let me know. Otherwise, look for some field trip notes/photos coming soon.
