Coming to Southern California next year: healthful food with McDonald's business sense and Bill Clinton's blessing. LYFE Kitchen, a year-old Palo Alto restaurant that hits all the organic, local, vegan and gluten-free buzz words beloved of health nuts and foodies, is arriving in Culver City in mid to late February. The brand will then set up shop in Tarzana and West Hollywood this summer, according to the company, whose name is short for Love Your Food Everyday. It was launched in October 2011 by Mike Roberts, the former president and chief operating officer of McDonald's.

So it turns out that meatless Fridays, which for generations inflicted fish sticks and tuna casseroles on millions of school-age children, Catholic and otherwise, were actually saving the planet.

Here are some good places for eating experiences: Local eatery. Hawaiian Style Cafe, Waimea. This low-key breakfast joint is an obsession with those who have tried it. Lines of locals form on weekends, and the place closes when it runs out of food. The Loco Moco (eggs, hamburger and gravy over rice) is the "local food" you are looking for. (808) 885- 4295.
