How Eating Real Food Makes Us Happier



Eating Real Food Means:


Nourishing your body

with fruits + veggies everyday



Why Eating Real Food Matters

It may seem like a strange happy habit but food provides the building blocks and the fuel for our bodies and our brains.


What we eat literally becomes us; every seven years or so our bodies have completely replaced all of our cells using the building blocks we have provided from food. There is also an area of our gut that it directly connected to our brain via the gut-brain axis. This is why our gut is called our second brain and why what we eat and absorb actually intimately influences how we think and feel!

Eating whole, fresh fruits and veggies everyday ensures that kids are feeding their bodies and brains what they need to thrive.
