This health food store, which doubles as a restaurant, isn't fancy by any accord. In fact, the set up looks like a mall food court, while kitschy and mismatched accents give it a mom-and-pop business feel. Yet delivery, takeout, and lunch on the spot keep it busy all day long. The goal here is tasty comfort food, reinvented in a healthy manner -- with low fat, little sodium, and low cholesterol. There are several vegetarian dishes such as a veggie sun burger ($10.95) served with rice, steamed vegetables, and a signature sauce, and a non-meat chili ($8.95) made with beans and marinara sauce atop rice. That last item follows the principals of the pritikin lifestyle, a '60s high-fiber diet and exercise plan. But carnivorous diners watching their weight or sodium intake can also partake of the grub with options such as a turkey hotdog pizza ($8.95), which looks like a pepperoni pizza, or cashew chicken ($9.95), diced chicken and julienned vegetables served over rice. There are also some macrobiotic choices. Meals can be topped off with several fresh fruit juices and shakes, or a handful of imported and domestic beers.
