By our logic, food that’s grown ethically and sustainably, prepared traditionally and enjoyed locally (with family, friends and laughter), guarantees optimal nourishment – just as it has through the ages.
But it’s bigger than individual health.
We believe that if more people discover how to shop, cook and eat this way, collectively we can create a better food system. One which prioritises soil health, the welfare of farmers and their animals – and ultimately provides a more nutritious and delicious product for us all to enjoy! It’s time we joined the dots. Our food choices are powerful!
What is nose-to-tail nutrition?
It’s a mission to help you reconnect with your instincts, with the seasons, traditional wisdom, food provenance (where your food comes from) and with your community. A philosophy that extends far beyond the way we eat animals. It’s about respectfully considering “the whole”.
The whole PLANT (root-to-tip)
Using every part – even the carrot tops, corn cobs and onion skins. These odd bits are just as nutritious (if not moreso) than the ones we normally consume. Learning to use them curbs food waste – and what’s not to love about a free source of nutrients?
The whole ANIMAL (nose-to-tail)
Consuming animals in the traditional way, means making use of every part – organs, bones and all. It offers us balanced and economical nutrition, with plenty of creative meal options to boot. But most importantly, eating this way honours the animal and shortens supply chains.
The whole PERSON
Good health is about so much more than the physical, which is why the ‘perfect’ diet is a very individual thing. Western science is gradually confirming the principles of Eastern philosophy and the value of treating the whole person – body, mind and soul – rather than a set of symptoms. After all, you can alter your biochemistry with a single thought.
The whole FOOD SYSTEM
Because they aren’t paid a fair price, farmers who supply the big chains are often forced to take shortcuts at the expense of animal welfare or consumer health. At the other end, we’re offered bland or unhealthy produce that sits in storage before reaching us. It could be different. Imagine farmers and artisans producing exceptional quality food, especially for us. It’s called a local food system and it’s one in which everyone wins. (Except the big chains).
