Coffee king Starbucks Corp. is gunning for the health food industry. The Seattle company announced Thursday the $30-million, all-cash acquisition of San Bernardino-based Evolution Fresh Inc., a natural fruit and vegetable juice maker created by Jimmy Rosenberg, who also founded the Naked Juice brand. With Starbucks coffee shops as ubiquitous as hamburger joints, the company is looking to target a new market by opening a chain of stores next year centered on "wholesome" beverages and food.

Too many people see health food as medicine, and that is one thing that keeps them from eating healthfully, says Dr. Andrew Weil. In his new cookbook, written with Sam Fox and Michael Stebner, he tries to dispel the notion that delicious food and healthful food are exclusive. The book is called "True Food" (Little, Brown and Co., $29.99), which Weil said Thursday in a telephone interview, means "real food first of all. I think a lot of what people eat is not real food. " "I am a good home cook, and I like dishes that are simple, that have bold flavors, that are relatively easy to prepare," he said.

The Food and Drug Administration offered assurances Tuesday that dietary supplements will remain widely available, even though it will soon be able to regulate the claims on their labels for the first time. A moratorium that barred the FDA from regulating vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids and other health food store staples expires today.

The whirr of the blender blades was gone, replaced Monday afternoon with the pounding of hammers and the screech of nails being wrenched from secure berths in the weathered clapboard of the now-defunct Orange Inn. The historic shanty, which dispensed fresh guava shakes and cottage-cheese-and-cucumber sandwiches on a barren stretch of Coast Highway for nearly two generations, was being dismantled board by board.

Timothy Hollingsworth, the 33-year-old chef de cuisine at the French Laundry , is moving to Los Angeles. But don't get your hopes too high. He doesn't have a restaurant planned - not yet, anyway. Hollingsworth announced in November that he would be leaving the Laundry in spring. At the time he told the San Francisco Chronicle's Paolo Lucchesi that he was playing with an idea of opening a more casual and popular type of restaurant, maybe even a spin on Mexican. He's still thinking about doing something like that, but first he's going to be working in video production.

Laura Kightlinger is an extreme hyphenate: producer, actress, stand-up comic and documentarian. In addition to her consulting producer duties on NBC's "Will & Grace," she has a recurring role as Nurse Sheila. Her documentary "60 Spins Around the Sun" is playing at festivals, and she's just finished a role in the movie "Kicking & Screaming" with Will Ferrell. She jokes that she and boyfriend Jack Black are "a couple in our 90s" and that she "tries to keep my cats' 16-hour sleep schedule."

Goodbye, Mrs. Gooch. The name of that Southern California pioneer of eating right, Sandy Gooch, disappears today from the signs of the natural food stores she sold three years ago to the fast-growing Whole Foods Markets chain out of Austin, Texas. The name change signals a shift in direction after a restructuring of the Southern California operation, which has most recently been known as Mrs. Gooch's Whole Foods.

Recently, a kid named Sandy Pukel, whom I haven't seen since high school, tracked me down through Facebook. Turns out he is no longer a kid (surprise!); in fact, he is a health food guru, and he mentioned he was running his annual Holistic Holiday at Sea vegan cruise to the Caribbean. The idea tickled my funny bone, and pardon me if I mention the word "bone" in the context of vegan fare. The average cruiser is said to gain 7 to 10 pounds in a week by shoveling in food by the truckload; Sandy said that on his cruise, folks lose weight.

L.A.'s best new restaurant is not in a million-dollar architectural space. It is not in a "hot" location. It does not have important artists' work on the walls. It does not have an Armani-suited maitre d' to sneer at your year-old Walter Steiger flats. Carrots is in a Santa Monica Boulevard strip mall--the best table offers a view of the doughnut shop cater-corner to the restaurant. And it is the food, for the most part carrot-free, that makes this modest storefront an important restaurant.
