Exclusive first look: True Food Kitchen opens today in Cherry Creek

There's been a lot written about Dr. Andrew Weil, a bestselling cookbook author, the founder and director of the Arizona Center for integrative medicine, and a partner in True Food Kitchen, which opens today in Cherry Creek. And most of what's been penned about the doctor, who holds a medical degree from Harvard, advocates his healthy foods philosophy, which revolves around an anti-inflammatory diet.

But while there are plenty of self-described "experts" who extol healthy diets, not all of them practice what they preach. Weil, however, has a confession that leads credence to his mission: "I have the rare distinction," he declares, "of never once eating a McDonald's hamburger or French fries."

Weil, for the record, is seventy years old.
