The Concept

The idea behind Protein Fit Kitchen is simple: Provide fast, fit food for active people who want healthy meals and snacks that compliment their active lifestyle. Our seasonal selections of protein-rich, nutritionally balanced meals, snacks, mylkshakes and tonics are made fresh daily by our chef for you to take home, or eat in.

If you’re in a hurry and too busy to order at the counter, just grab from our selection of pre-prepared meals in the cold case.

Come in. Sit down. And discover how a Protein Meal Plan can improve your performance, your energy level, and your health.

We all want to be fit, but life is too short to not enjoy what we eat.

Tony Phansana & Steve Herrera, Founders of Protein

Our Chef

Chef Kalen Morgenstern (aka Kalen Jane) was born in Dallas, Texas. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science from the University of Georgia. She later moved to Nashville, where she received her Culinary Arts Degree from The Art Institute of Tennessee-Nashville in 2009.

During her time in Nashville, Kalen had the privilege of working at the Patterson House under two-time James Beard Nominee, Chef Josh Habiger. She also assisted with three prestigious restaurant openings at The Gaylord Opryland Hotel.

In 2012, Kalen decided to return to her roots and her home state. Back in Fort Worth, she worked in various kitchens and was instrumental in helping two successful local food trucks become brick and mortar operations.

In 2013, she became Sous Chef at Tillman’s Roadhouse, and later that year, had the honor of being selected as a participant on Season 13 of Hell’s Kitchen with Gordon Ramsay. In 2015, she became Chef de Cuisine at Tillman’s, and participated as a finalist in Fort Worth Texas Magazine’s Top Chef Competition.

In 2016, she assisted with the re-branding of Tillman’s Roadhouse into FW Market + Table, where she served as Executive Chef and General Manager. FW Market + Table was nominated for Best New Restaurant 2016 and won Best of Fort Worth for Healthiest Bite in Fort Worth Texas Magazine. She was nominated once again for Fort Worth’s Top Chef Competition and she was named one of the Top Female Chefs in Fort Worth.

In the fall of 2016, Kalen became Executive Chef and General Manager at Protein Fit Kitchen in Southlake, TX, where her extensive knowledge in nutrition-based eating, dietary restriction management and clean eating, will bring a new level of healthy dining to North Texas.
