Once upon a time, maintaining a strict diet meant giving up classic favorites like burgers, pizzas, and pasta. But dietitians and nutritionists, chefs, and leading health advocates have made leaps and bounds when it comes to making healthy food. Internationally renowned model and keto advocate Nicole Rokita opened the first restaurant that serves everybody’s favorite foods in a healthier way, niKETO Restaurant.
Hollywood’s first all-keto restaurant, nikETO serves everybody’s favorite “unhealthy” meals in low-carb, gluten-free ketogenic versions. The restaurant’s menu consists of healthy versions of burgers, pizzas, pasta, and even desserts that are well within any dieter’s carb limit.
NiKETO Restaurant was founded by Nicole Rokita, a model, and entrepreneur. Nicole herself embraced the keto lifestyle five years ago when she was in search of an effective lifestyle shift that would chase away her health problems. After finding keto to be the answer to her health woes, she has been dedicated to the lifestyle ever since. Keto has famously been known to help with heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, PCOS, brain injuries, and even acne.
“The concept of niKETO was influenced by the ketogenic diet, but the key to success for niKETO is much simpler: the goal is to create awareness about the positive effects that a low carb diet has on both your mind and your body,” Nicole said.
Nicole Rokita aims to bring awareness of recent scientific research that supports the keto diet and its long list of health benefits. As a keto advocate, she learned that there are many things regarding healthy eating that have been false all along. This is where her strong desire to preach the wonders of keto comes from. For anyone interested in dabbling in keto, she strongly advises to cut carbohydrates out first.
Nicole Rokita is an alumna of the University of Chicago, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology. She decided to enter the restaurant industry out of pure spontaneity and her passion for the keto diet. Though the restaurant industry has a notorious reputation for being one of the most challenging industries to succeed in, Nicole, always an entrepreneur, has managed to gain wide patronage in her niche in the restaurant world.
The restaurateur made her mark as the owner of the first-ever restaurant that caters solely to the keto diet. Nicole Rokita made menu items as low in carbohydrates as possible to ensure that diners could pick and choose a variety of food items for their meals without going over their carb limit. She made it a point to make the food just as good as “normal” pizzas, desserts, and burgers. Even non-dieters have remarked at how good niKETO Restaurant food tastes.
Nicole Rokita is currently in the process of expanding niKETO. She plans to create an entire restaurant group that will operate several different brands featuring varying cuisines. The niKETO group will operate under one all-encompassing principle—to serve healthy keto-friendly meals that are low in carbs and high in health benefits.
