Healthy Choices

All of the menu choices are healthy and tasty (usually mutually exclusive). If you're looking for a nice local place to stop, this is the place. We have been coming for years. The smoothies are excellent as is the atmosphere.

. . . is caffeine! I know that's not on their horizon, but face it, coffee is NOT bad for you. Their dandelion version is okay, but at the end of an afternoon, a real latte would have been perfect. Other than that: fabulous vegan offerings, and huge portions.

My wife and I really enjoyed our meal here. I got the Udon Miso Masterful and my wife got the demi Sufi Poet salad. Everything was very fresh and the greens crisp in her salad, and my soup was very good, chocked full of mushrooms and kale and noodles. Prices are not bad for the fresh ingredients you get and...

It was a beautiful Sunday and we got one of the few tables outside which was quite pleasant. Inside is quite cluttered. Have a lengthy menu of salads, wraps, grain based dishes. The first time can be quite hard to figure out what is what. We had a explorer salad bowl with homemade hummus and veggies and a goddess bowl... More

I've been to the Life Alives in Salem and Cambridge many times. This was my first time at the Lowell one. The food took forever to be served. 30 minutes to be precise. That is an insane amount for a place that has much of it pre-cooked. When the food arrived, there was so much sauce on it I couldn't... More

I am not much a vegan but this place was really good. I like that they have a patio area where you can eat outside. I liked the decor and ambience of the place. Great place to hang with friends or for lunch.

I have eaten at numinous restaurants In the Greater Lowell area and must say that Life Alive is my personal "Favorite"! They are by far the "Healthiest Restaurant" you can eat at and I personally recommend trying their "Sofi Poet" salad and their "Swami" which I get with no pearlized onions. Yours in Health!

I love this place because I love this type of food...I'm talking lots of kale and quinoa! It's nice to have a place like this in the area. The interior is really funky and artsy, and they keep mason jars and pitchers of water in the corner for you to serve yourself. There are a few tables outside to eat... More

One of my favorite places to eat healthy food in Lowell for lunch. My favorite plate is The Goddess with tofu it's their signature dish.

I eat healthily, but not this kind of food. Too funky for me. Could not find anything on the menu that appealed to me.
