#Foodhaul at the OMC Headquarters.
You are what you eat, so we try our best to buy our food as living, local, wholefood, and as organic as possible - but sometimes it is simply not an option when organic broccoli is priced at 4.99 each, or when you need some quinoa shipped over from Peru.
For 4 - 5 prime male stallions (with a mix of dietary inclinations) some of our staples are kumara, quinoa, organic freerange eggs, Ceres Organics peanut butter & glutenfree muesli, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, Be Nourished organic sauerkraut, organic tofu, Moumoukai Hemp seed oil, coconut milk, buckwheat, and a huge supply of broccoli, cabbage, carrots, leeks, and other #vegetables - including fresh organic greens like kale, silverbeet, spinach and lettuce harvested straight from our garden.
We also have an unlimited supply of All Good Bananas apples, oranges, avocados, fresh turmeric and ginger from our stash for making organic smoothies the La Cigale French Market & Bistro on the weekend. Our food budget for the week? $250 = $50 each.
The main thing idea, is that we try and eat as #wholefood, #living, and #plantbased as possible - shopping at places like IE Produce, Wise Cicada and Harvest Wholefoods - but also at places like Countdown and our local farmers market when we are simply close to blowing the budget.
Some of us do eat a little bit of red meat, and some of us only eat one serving of fish once a week. When we do, we always honour the origins and try to make sure it has come from a place of high quality love. We have realised that every person will change, grow, and evolve at their own rate.
Hopefully this post helps to highlight some possible foods, and help at least one person to think more deeply about the food (medicine) they are putting into their body on a regular basis each week :)
