RIPE Offers Healthy Food for Everyone
Balancing quick, tasty and healthy food can prove difficult, but RIPE, sister restaurant of Fit Foodz Café, is here to change that.
Sept. 30 marked the opening of West Delray’s newest fast-casual restaurant, RIPE. Located on 15084 Lyons Road, RIPE and its extensive 100% gluten-free menu offers something for everyone. The menu provides options for several diets including vegan, vegetarian, paleo, keto and nut and dairy free options.
“RIPE is the ultimate representation of the philosophy that people shouldn’t have to sacrifice the foods they love just to feel and look their best,” said Michelle Soudry, PR visionary and CEO of The Gab Group, according to a press release.
Susan Klein’s personal experience with food lead her to become the visionary behind RIPE. Weight-gain caused by 20 years of managing Italian restaurants guided Klein towards a healthier eating journey of her own. This resulted Klein losing 50 pounds in a healthy, safe way, which she attributes to her gluten-free diet.
“By eating this way, I tended to naturally stay away from processed, packaged foods, instead reaching for fresh and healthy alternatives like more fruits and vegetables, legumes and lean meats, which tend to be lower in overall calories,” said Klein in a Sun Sentinel article.
Sticky rice bun burgers, cauliflower crust pizzettes and avocado gelato are just some of the many tasty items available.
“Food is delicious, great staff and last but not least professional and awesome ownership! You are missing out if you have not been,” said Randy S., one of many happy customers, in an online review.
RIPE is also looking for potential hires. If interested, please call (561) 451-1420 or stop by the restaurant to apply.
