Leafy Greens

Many delicate leafy greens are susceptible to pesticide absorption, we choose organic ingredients for following vegetables like spinach, kale, parsley, cilantro and many spices.

Proteins

Many of our proteins are grass-fed, pasture-raised and wild-caught selections. Animals that roam in pastures and consume an herbivore’s diet live natural lives and produce the best food products. These animals bypass the harmful conditions of factory farming such as:

 

• Regular (non-medical) use of antibiotics

• Bovine Growth Hormone supplementation and synthetic steroids

• Infections and pathogenic exposure from factory farms

• Harmful additives from unnatural diets

• Unnatural stress levels due to unsuitable living conditions

Pantry Goods

We reserve the right to modify this list of substances as we see fit.

 

• Genetically modified Organisms (GMOs)

• Brominated vegetable oil

• Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH, rBST)

Grains: Many of our meals are crafted with whole grains with less glycemic response than refined and processed grains.

Sugar: Sugar gets used sparingly in our products.  Our food is selectively sweetened using only natural sweeteners like Stevia and natural sugars.

Sodium:  Because we source fresh ingredients, our products are absent of  the sodium inherent in many processed foods.  We salt our foods selectively.  You may feel the need to add salt before serving.
