Follow your passion & live your dream

July 8th, 2012

This story is a living proof that when we follow our dreams and passion, anything is possible.

In 2005, a newly married couple James & Monica decided to put all their life savings on the line and followed their dreams and passion. They wanted to create a food business that really care for kids’ health and develop programs to assist children in need.

Despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles, they successfully created Australia’s first range of certified organic snacks for kids, which are all natural with no junk, no artificial additives, colourings or preservatives.

Whole foods, more than just good food…

April 12th, 2012


Whole foods are commonly defined as foods that have not been refined or processed and are closest as possible to their natural state.

According to Jude Blereau, a natural foods chef, author and whole foods expert, the true meaning of whole foods is much more than this. It is an understanding that food is part of the web of life and how we choose to grow food will affect our ecosystems.

Jude Blereau

Good food starts in the field’s healthy soil which is rich with microorganisms and dense in nutrients. Good food should be organic or biodynamic because these farming practices do not use toxic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilisers.

 

Organic and biodynamic farming practices help to eliminate chemical leaching into our environment, create healthier habitats for native animals, promote the balance of our native ecosystems and encourage preservation of the natural biodiversity.

 

Whole foods are good because when a food is whole with all its natural macro and micronutrients intact, it works effectively at its optimal level just as nature has intended.

 

Good food is ‘real’, made with true and natural ingredients unlike processed foods that are produced using toxic chemicals such as synthetic flavour enhancers, colourings and preservatives.
