It may not just be about personal chefs now: There is a bit of new culinary competition in town. Meet My Fit Foods, the latest health-food rage among those with discerning palates. Founded by personal trainer and nutritionist turned restaurateur Mario Mendias and with two Dallas locations (in Preston Center and on Lemmon Avenue), My Fit Foods is one part pick-up shop and another part eat-in diner. The concept is simple: Select your pre-made meal du jour from a centrally placed, oversized refrigerator before taking it to go or heating it up for noshing on the spot. Breakfast, lunch and dinner offerings are fresh and perfectly portioned — protein and carbohydrates are meticulously measured — and include tenderloin with pesto sauce and roasted vegetables; black bean soup with parboiled rice; steel-cut oatmeal pancakes with agave nectar dipping syrup; and plenty of nutritious snacks. The best part? Orders can be placed in advance at myfitfoods.com. Easy, healthy and gourmet? We like the sound of this already. 4015 Lemmon Ave., 214.780.0602; 6100 Luther Lane, 214.360.7569; myfitfoods.com.
