Imagine a choice of foods that are delicious, nutritious and good for your health – i.e. they helped to fuel your mind and body, improved detoxification…
and immune function, helped you maintain a healthy body weight, improved your overall mood, helped to reduce your risk of disease, and slowed the process of aging. Nutrients are what your body needs to grow, repair, and function normally, they encompass more than just macro-nutrients (protein, fats, and carbohydrates), micro-nutrients (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids), but also include antioxidants, photo and phyto-nutrients. Our food is nutrient rich, health promoting and in combination with our supplement line, the CURE to conventional food practice and the nutrient deficient SAD (Standard American Diet). Our food offerings also compliment and support our Nourish Balance Thrive™ Program, your personal wellness solution.
Healthy eating is not about strict dietary limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health, and stabilizing your mood.
Ninety-nine percent of the Americans are deficient in minerals, and a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals eventually results in disease. While our understanding of food and nutrition has come a long way, a lot of that progress has been in the wrong direction, thanks to the introduction of fast foods, GMO products, and major changes in farming techniques.
Understanding that it is far easier to maintain good health than to regain it once it’s lost… at Pleij, we strive to create a menu and environment that supports health and sustainability for our community and the planet. We practice business through a term we call “Sacred Commerce”, where we provide knowledge, inspired service, honest and transparent communication, and seek to enrich the lives of those we serve.
We support local farmers, sustainable agriculture and environmentally friendly products. Our food is prepared with love and intention. We invite you to step inside and enjoy the experience of being nourished and cared for. Welcome to epiCUREan café™!
Eat well, be active and Pleij!
