INDIANAPOLIS — The first and only plant-based food option opened at Circle Centre Mall today.
The Alkaline Electric Goddess is a black-owned business that was established in 2018 by Ellise “Nikki” Johnson.
Johnson was diagnosed with Lupus in 2018. She says she switched to a plant-based diet to help better manage the disease.
“After eight months on my plant-based diet, I went to my doctor, and I no longer had the symptoms of Lupus. I’ve been off my medication for six years and I wanted to share that with the world,” Johnson said.
Johnson says she originally started The Alkaline Electric Goddess as a meal prep service to help others choose a healthier way of eating.
“Everyone started reaching out for help. I started helping people. I didn’t start this to be a business, but it just took off,” Johnson said.
The menu will be filled with a variety of vegan options, with daily specials like Taco Tuesday and Soul Food Sunday.
Johnson says not only will there be plant-based options, but alkaline food for customers who aren’t fully plant-based yet.
“It’s the same great taste, yet it’s vegan. I look forward to serving you,” Johnson said.
