OUR FOOD PHILOSOPHY
Simple, healthy, fresh and tasty food that fuels your body and mind. That is what we believe in and the feeling behind the food we create. Top quality produce, taken from the paddock to plate, and prepared with care and loving kindness. We respect dietary diversity + know that there are many paths to vitality + good health. However, there are nutritional choices that help EVERYBODY
We put vegetables front + centre in plant-based plates that make it easy to eat more vegetables.
EAT A VARIETY OF FOODS
We vary our offering to help maximise micro-nutrient intake. We enjoy changing our menu according to the produce of the season + our farm.
MINIMISE ADDED SUGARS
Sugar is essentially a nutrient-devoid source of energy. We bake without white sugar + use small amounts of flavourful sweeteners like maple + honey. We prefer fruit as a sweetener as it brings fibre + nutrients with it.
CHOOSE HEALTHY FATS
We prioritise olive oil for its role in an anti-inflammatory diet, nuts, nut butter, avocados + fatty fish as a source of essential Omega 3 fatty acids. Seeds + seed oils are used judiciously to balance omega 6:3 ratio. Smaller amounts of saturated fats like coconut oil may be used.
ENJOY WHOLE GRAINS
Grains over flakes, flakes over flour. No highly refined options. Whole grains + legumes (in amounts appropriate to your energy needs) provide essential nutrients, fibre + prebiotics to support gut health.
CHOOSE QUALITY PROTEIN
Organic, free-range or pasture fed. Portion appropriate.
SUPPORT A HEALTHY GUT BIOTA
The future of health, physical + mental, is in our gut. We offer probiotics through fermented foods + drinks + probiotics through our menu. We prepare our food so that the bioavailability of micronutrients is maximised by soaking + fermenting
