Now that we have introduced you to some of the restaurants out there that offer exceptionally tasty and nourishing food while caring for the health of our planet as well as for our bodies, it is time to add something new and quite different.
You know how it is…sometimes we just do not feel like going out to eat but really do not feel up to venturing into the kitchen to whip up a meal either.
Natalie and Noel, the founders of Earthshine will make up a visually stunning, exceptionally nutritious and lip-smackingly tasty raw, organic pizza for you to feast on…at home or anywhere else for that matter.
I know it sounds strange but these pizza’s are seriously good and are wheat, gluten and dairy free with no refined carbs, trans fats, artificial additives or animal products. They are suitable for people who are dealing with candida or who have coeliac disorders.
Ingredients are predominantly certified organic(unless unavailable). I can honestly say that I doubt you will get a more ethical or organic meal from a 3rd party outside of sourcing the ingredients yourselves. That is how passionate they are about health, nutrition and sustainability.
Even the base is raw and is made up of inter alia a combination of sprouted buckwheat, flax seeds and onion.
Now why raw?
Did you know that cooking any food the following happens:
- all enzymes are destroyed in full(see related article)
- Most protein is destroyed or converted to forms that are not easily digested.
- Vitamin activity is enormously reduced( between 50 – 80% depending on vitamin)
- In fact there is an average overall nutrient destuction of approximately 85% from cooking
So if you really want to eat healthy…EAT MORE RAW.
They also come in half sizes which is more than enough for 1-2 people.(believe me, I have tried to eat a half on my own and it is a big ask)
At R145 for the full and R85 for the half they are not exactly cheap but look at what you are getting.
The pizzas are made to order only from Wednesday to Saturday and can be collected at one of 20 collection points in Cape Town and surrounds.
One divine variety of pizza is made each day which changes according to available produce.
Want to be remembered for a truly spectacular and unique dinner party? Then order one of Earthshine’s raw dessert pizza’s. The same care and effort is put into this one which equates to dessert for up to 8 people!
Earthshine have a shop onsite offering a variety of raw and organic products and ingredients from tasty raw chocolate treats to healthy alternatives to almost everything including the most delicious kale crisps(a healthy alternative to those oh so addictive potato crisps)
IF YOU WANT TO EAT HEALTHY, BUT DON’T WANT TO GO OUT AND CAN’T FACE THE KITCHEN…EARTHSHINE IS FOR YOU!
