What if there were a place that sought out the best and freshest foods available and then prepared those foods right there in front of you instead of having a previously frozen meal full of all kinds of who-knows what? 

Why should it be so hard for someone to find food that tastes really great, without feeling like they have to give up their health to get it? In fact – what if it actually powered their lives? That kind of a place is more than just a restaurant… that kind of a place is CoreLife! 

CoreLife Eatery brings together scratch cooking with flavorful source ingredients and a fast, casual service line for a healthy and affordable eating alternative. 

“Creating a menu that is both healthy and delicious is the main goal of CoreLife Eatery,” VP of Operations of CoreLife Eatery, Daniel Lett, said. “We want people to be able to enjoy a healthy, fresh meal without sacrificing the flavor.”

CoreLife offers a wide variety of fresh ingredients that are transformed into custom-created dishes. Featuring green bowls, grain bowls, broth bowls, hearty salads and made-from-scratch beverages,  this hot new spot is the perfect place for those eating gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, and more. 

“This place is amazing and tailors to any style of eating,” said recent customer and 5-star reviewer Nicki M. “Their dressings and sauces are unique and very taste. I also appreciate the variety available. I will say there are an overwhelming amount of options so I always order ahead online… I love getting a cup of bone broth along with a salad.”

“You can have a peace of mind with any dish you order that you have just put a healthy, worry-free meal in your body. I come here for my Keto friendly meals because they offer an incredible variety and very tasty options. My kids love it too. The juice bar is amazing. They have a great selection of natural drinks that aren’t artificially sweetened. Their lemonades and teas are delicious. Try the beet lemonade, trust me!” said customer Maria S.

This highly anticipated new eatery is conveniently located at 13419 N Dale Mabry Hwy, and is the first restaurant in a development agreement that will bring at least 32 CoreLifeEatery restaurants to Florida. It opened its doors on October 5th, 2018 in the heart of Carrollwood, and has received a ton of positive feedback and community support since then.

“Amazing food! I love that it is all organic and NON-GMO,” said 5-star online reviewer, Jessica R. “There’s no added salt to the rice or quinoa. Carrollwood has needed place like this for a while. I love that there’s so much variety too! My absolute favorite place now!”

All CoreLife Eatery foods are free of trans fats, artificial colors, sweeteners, other artificial additives and GMO’s. “We don’t have any freezers or microwaves in the store. Nothing is ever previously frozen. Everything, from our protein to our vegetables, are delivered fresh daily,” said Daniel. “The chicken and steak used are sustainably raised and never given antibiotics or hormones. Our broths are made in house and slow simmered all day for maximum taste and nutrition. All of our drinks are naturally sweetened and without artificial flavors.” 

Daniel highly recommends incorporating bone broth into our dietary routine due to its incredible health benefits. “Collagen is vital to our digestive tract health. The glucosamine in bone broth can actually stimulate the growth of new collagen, repair damaged joints and reduce pain and inflammation,” said Daniel. 

CoreLife is much more than just a brand, is a lifestyle. “Our food is top-quality fuel that compliments the active lifestyles of our clients,” Emily Munger, Marketing & Events Coordinator of CoreLife Eatery, said. “We are not a fad type of Restaurant, we’re here to show people that eating clean and staying active is all part of a healthy lifestyle, not something that you can put an end date to. Truth is that what you eat every day is the ultimate performance enhancer. Your energy levels are directly connected to what you put in your body. So our mission is to deliver that fuel to you with nothing but high quality ingredients.” 

Change Your Food, Change Your Life

As part of its ongoing commitment to wellness and the community, Emily mentioned that they are offering something called the “The CoreLife 21 day challenge.” “The CoreLife Challenge is a 21-day process that helps get you recharged, refueled, and on the path towards living a healthier lifestyle and becoming a healthier you,” said Emily. “Once you sign up at corelifeatery.com, you’ll start receiving daily tips and recommendations on how to detox your system, and refuel your body with the foods you’re meant to eat. You will also be offered amazing deals and offers to save on your favorite dishes at CoreLife.”

Moreover, customers will soon be invited to partake in monthly fitness events like yoga and other low-impact exercises, which will take place right at CoreLife Eatery, before the restaurant opens its doors for regular business. So visit their website regularly to sign up for their next fitness event.
