The following nutritional principles guide the preparation of all of our foods:
Antioxidants We serve foods containing high levels of antioxidants and anthocyanins to prevent cell damage and help you manage stressful environments. These foods happen to taste great and look beautiful too.
Complex Carbohydrates Brown rice, quinoa, potatoes, beans, peas and lentils are a great source of complex carbs and contain essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that contribute to decreasing bad cholesterol, normalizing blood glucose levels and promoting healthy digestion. The complex carbs in our food will boost your energy, rev up brain function and increase your metabolism.
Fiber From heart health to digestion, fiber is a key element in a healthy meal that leaves you feeling satisfied.
Good Fat Healthy fats like olive oil and coconut oil are important nutritional building blocks that are great for heart health, improving blood lipids and controlling cholesterol and blood pressure. They also help the body process carbohydrates slowly so you feel alert throughout the day.
Leafy Greens Your mother was right: Eat more leafy greens. The science is more conclusive every day - leafy greens are full of phytonutrients that are great for our bodies. We use a rotating seasonal blend of greens with terrific flavor and texture. No iceberg.
Protein Boost energy levels by adding high quality protein to a balanced diet. We use nuts and beans to provide a combination of protein and other beneficial compounds. We also use sustainably raised and locally sourced animal products, including antibiotic free, hormone free chicken, grass fed beef, tender, high-quality Vermont pork shoulder, and Stonewood Farms turkey.
Bone Broth Alleviate joint and gut pain, boost your immune system and brighten your skin with bone broth. Yep, you heard us right. Extraordinarily rich in protein and a great source of vitamins and minerals, bone broth supports the body’s detoxification process and digestive health, while also mitigating the side effects of respiratory infections. Farm fresh chicken soup, anyone?
Fermented Vegetables Naturally pickled foods and naturally lactofermented foods provide valuable enzymes that help with digestion and other health functions. We complement our meals with “live” pickled vegetables for maximum health benefit. It’s a great way to end a meal: Japanese Bento boxes have used this principle for generations.
