FAQ

Where can I find your store?

We operate in a pretty unique and new school fashion- online, at Pop Ups and select markets. Check out our events page to find out where we will be next, you may not have very far to go!

Select products are also carried at some great fitness studios, and stores-you can find an up-to-date list on our footer. (We don't always know what they have in stock so its best to check directly with them).

And you can always find us every Saturday at the Farmers and Makers Market at cSpace.

What are you guys all about?

We are here to make the food you want to eat, the food you should eat, and to do it conveniently, healthfully and sustainably. We do that by

  1. Leaving out unnecessary, unhealthful and unnatural items. Our products are free of gluten, soy, refined sugar, palm oil, artificial colours and flavours, preservatives, weird chemicals, and fillers.

  2. Being allergy friendly-If you have allergies, we can work with you to make sure there is no cross contamination, and because we custom make every order, we can make your order first thing in the morning, so there are zero cross contamination issues.

  3. Being Plant Based and offering Paleo and Vegan Options. Our menu is Plant Based, meaning we use minimal animal products and instead focus on ingredients that are from sustainably sourced plants. Paleo? We have you covered, our Paleo options are dairy, refined sugar, grain and legume free. Our vegan options have absolutely no animal products like eggs, dairy and honey nor do we use ingredients whose cultivation practices harm animal lives, like soy or palm.

  4. We are an Earth friendly, socially aware triple bottom line company. We choose to purchase local or fairly traded, sustainable goods, and as much as possible,organic and/or spray free.

  5. We give back. We donate to shelters, food banks and meal programs.

  6. We are a team of different colours, genders, creeds, sexes, abilities, origins, ages, and sexual orientations with a common goal - to make amazing, healthful food  for everyone. With a smile.

What's your problem with palm oil? I've heard its great for you, and it's in so many things.

We are, first and foremost, an Earth friendly company and using palm oil is not Earth friendly in any way..There are so many issues with palm oil, we recommend checking out doing your own personal research or checking out this link. Unfortunately there really is no such thing as sustainable palm oil, every palm plantation causes or has caused degradation of human rights, deforestation and environmental damage.
