Whole Harvest Kitchen: Your Go-To Spot for Healthy Plant-Based Food in Leawood

What’s the Buzz About?

Hey there, foodies in Johnson County! There’s a new spot in town for all you health-conscious peeps. Whole Harvest Kitchen has opened its doors in Leawood. It started as a meal delivery service in 2018, and now they’ve got their first brick-and-mortar location at 4853 W. 117th St. It’s on the east end of the Town Center Plaza shopping center, right next to the GNC store.

When Can You Go and What Can You Eat?

Whole Harvest Kitchen is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Their menu’s got “whole food” stuff like hummus bowls, Mediterranean salads, jackfruit pizzas, and veggie dumplings. They’ve got sweet treats too, like chocolate fudge cake, dark chocolate truffles, and banana-based “nice cream.” They’re planning to add grab-and-go options like wraps and salads soon.

Everything on the menu is plant-based and oil-free, kinda like the Blue Zone diet. They get a lot of their ingredients from local Kansas and Missouri producers, so they’re all about supporting local.

Meet the Chef: Will Harris

Executive Chef Will Harris has a personal connection to the plant-based focus of Whole Harvest Kitchen. He switched to a mostly plant-based diet and saw some big health improvements. His fave menu items at the restaurant are the sourdough pizzas and mushroom dishes, like the K.C. Barbecue Plate with jackfruit and barbecue mushrooms.

What’s Next for Whole Harvest Kitchen?

Whole Harvest Kitchen wants to open more locations in Johnson County and across the country. They’re not trying to be all vegan, but they want to serve great food that just happens to be vegan. Harris thinks that eating plant-based meals once or twice a week can be a gateway to healthier eating habits.
