we’re champions of healthy eating + we’ve always kept our approach simple: start with fresh ingredients + whole foods + go from there. that’s it. almost everything that we serve is made from scratch. we love creating nutrient dense + vibrant dishes that leave you feeling light + energized. and while our menu is continuously evolving, there are a handful of rock-star ingredients that you’ll almost certainly find in our kitchen.
The centre of the Mediterranean diet. Rich in anti-oxidants + known for its healing properties, we’d drizzle EVOO on everything if we could.
the poster child for healthy, monounsaturated fats. apart from the creaminess it adds to our dishes, we love the avocado’s anti-inflammatory properties.
the superior fibre content helps balance its natural sugars (meaning a slow – not spiked – release of sugars into the blood stream). these potatoes possess a sweetness we embrace with a clear conscience.
where do we begin. extremely rich in antioxidants? dietary fibre? high in vitamin A + C? all of the above. just make sure to keep the skin on – most of the good stuff is in the peel.
with tempeh (unlike tofu) soybeans are fermented + not processed, resulting in increased digestibility + nutrient absorption. this plant-based protein makes meatless mondays a lot more fun.
loaded with protein + healthy fats, this oily fish is also one of the most nutrient dense. + if sourced from ethical suppliers, salmon can be one of the most sustainable fish in the world, which we love.
an ancient grain (technically a seed) + complete protein containing almost twice as much fibre as other grains.
lowering insulin resistance + protecting your nervous system, raw cacao is even better for your health than its delicious cousin, dark chocolate.
native to south america, chia seeds are widely considered one of the healthiest foods on the planet delivering a big nutritional punch with little calories.
its deep golden colour is beautiful, but we love this natural booster for its anti-inflammatory, cholesterol lowering + blood sugar regulating properties.
this natural algae is a complete protein + rich in chlorophyll (which helps remove toxins from the body). add a teaspoon to your green smoothie on a saturday morning.
cultivated for over 6000 years, these sweet palm fruits are rich in dietary fibre, helping regulate the digestive process.
we love calories. the good ones at least. we’re always looking for healthy ways to fuel our movement + understand that good + nutrient dense food is often highly caloric. a single tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil contains 120 calories. half of an avocado clocks in at about 160 calories. and both foods are considered amongst the healthiest fats on the planet. while we’re huge proponents of eating lots of the good stuff, we also recognize that there may be times when monitoring caloric intake is a priority for some. if you’re looking to keep things light, we’ve got a few suggestions.
many of our dressings are made with extra virgin olive oil. ask for a fresh squeeze of lemon juice instead.
we love cheese. we could eat platters of it (with a little vino of course). but we also know it can be pretty caloric. if you’re looking to keep things light, hold the queso.
while fibrous + full of energy, grains like brown rice + quinoa (technically a seed) are also quite caloric. substitute leafy greens like arugula, kale, spinach or romaine in their place for a little colour.
nuts (+ seeds) are rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, magnesium, potassium + antioxidants like vitamin E. they’re also quite caloric. if you’re mindful of the numbers, ask for a half portion.
