Corelife

“All food will end up in bowls.” a friend told me. The proliferation of fast-casual dining continues, but I like the healthy twist that seems to be popping up more and more. CoreLife Eatery just opened up on the east side last month and the only thing with gluten on the menu is the optional […]
