Whole Harvest Kitchen: A Healthy Eatery in Leawood
Hey there! If you live in Johnson County and are looking for a healthy dining experience, you should check out Whole Harvest Kitchen. It’s a plant-based eatery that just opened in Leawood. They started as a meal delivery service in 2018, but now they have their first brick-and-mortar location at 4853 W. 117th St., near the Town Center Plaza shopping center and next to GNC.
Operating Hours and Nutritious Menu
Whole Harvest Kitchen is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Their menu has whole food items like hummus bowls, Mediterranean salads, jackfruit pizzas, and vegetable dumplings. They also have sweet treats like chocolate fudge cake, dark chocolate truffles, and “nice cream” (made from bananas). They’re planning to add grab-and-go options like wraps and salads soon.
Everything on the menu is plant-based and oil-free, following the Blue Zone diet. They even use some ingredients from local Kansas and Missouri producers.
Executive Chef’s Personal Journey
Will Harris, the executive chef at Whole Harvest Kitchen, has a personal connection to the restaurant’s plant-based focus. After switching to a mostly plant-based diet, he saw big improvements in his health. His favorite menu items at Whole Harvest Kitchen are the sourdough pizzas and the mushroom dishes, like the K.C. Barbecue Plate with jackfruit and barbecue mushrooms.
Expansion Plans for Whole Harvest Kitchen
Whole Harvest Kitchen wants to open more restaurants in Johnson County and across the country. Harris says the goal isn’t to be just a vegan restaurant, but a place that serves great food that happens to be vegan. “We’re not trying to change the way anybody eats. But if you do this once or twice a week, maybe it’s a gateway for you to like to change or get better to get healthier,” he said.
