FAQ

General

Do you recommend and use organic ingredients?

Here are a few reasons why we choose and support organic

  • Organic foods and farming are climate-friendly.
  • Organic farming prohibits the use of toxic pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones, nano-particles, and climate-destabilizing chemical fertilizers.
  • Organic foods are produced without the use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). 
  • Organic food certification prohibits nuclear irradiation.
  • Organic farming categorically prohibits the use of sewage sludge.
  • Studies show that organic foods contain more vitamins, cancer-fighting anti-oxidants, and important trace minerals.
  • Animals on organic farms cannot be fed slaughterhouse waste, manure, or blood—daily rations on America’s factory farms.
How is grass-fed meat different than all other meat?

Most of the conventional and even organic meats on the market have other been grass-fed, meaning they eat the grass they are pastured on but grain finished or they are grain-fed most of their lives while living in really awful confided indoor facilities. By asking your butcher for 100% grass-fed meat you will be choosing a meat that is more humane, higher in nutrients, rich in omega 3’s, and less damaging on the environment. Check out where we shop and start buying your cuts. If you want more information about this topic send us an e-mail and we will send you a handy PDF about why grass-fed is gold!

I noticed that you recommend to avoid soy. Why is this?

Fermented types of soy are possibility an ingredient we would use because it does have health benefits but here are a few reasons what we avoid non-fermented soy:

  • Contains goitrogens which can impair thyroid function.
  • Contains trypsin inhibitors that impair our ability to digest protein
  • Almost all soy is genetically modified – Make sure to buy organic
  • Contains phytic acid which can inhibit mineral absorption
  • Contain phyto-estrogens which are a weak estrogen acting like plant sterols.
What if I have allergies?

We pride ourselves on offering a low-toxin, low-allergen menu however you might be allergic to something we do use. If this is the case, be certain to note it when you are signing up and filling out the intake form. Depending on the allergy, we will modify your meal. Working with specific allergies requires a case by case assessment so just let us know and we will tell you if you can make it work or not.

Why would I want a menu that is gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and plant based?

There is ample evidence to support that eating a diet like ours will help to decrease inflammation, improve cognitive function, reduce food cravings and help you achieve your natural weight.

What’s a dedication?

A dedication is the part of your book to make a reference to why you made it or who you made it for.

It is a few sentences to acknowledge the purpose or intention of the book.

You’ve mentioned that you believe eating grass-fed, pastured, wild and free-range animals is part of a healthy diet. How come you don’t have more meat mains?

There are two reasons really, first being that we believe people need more access to vegetables. There is extremely easy access to processed and fast foods, making choosing the right foods much more difficult because people have to go out of their way to find it. Our goal is to make eating the good stuff just as accessible
