Take a trip down any grocery store aisle, pick up a few random items, flip em over and read the ingredients…Chances are you never heard of half of the ingredients listed, let alone how to pronounce them! And we’re not talking about cleaning products here folks – we’re taking about ‘food’!

With all the chemicals, preservatives, toxins, and artificial additives in our so-called ‘food’ these days, we have to be ‘food detectives’ if we want to ensure our own health.

So what’s the best way to control the quality of the food you put into your body?

Make it yourself…or choose a restaurant that cares about your health as much as you do! Avoid toxic overload by choosing to supply your body with the cleanest ‘fuel’ available.

 

Organic Tomatoes? Organic Onions? Organic Cilantro? YEP

 

At Choices Cafe, we pride ourselves on being homemade and using high quality, organic, plant-based ingredients. We choose homemade because it allows us to control the ingredients in the food we serve you. Over the years, we have transitioned more and more to 100% homemade whenever possible. Today, we’re proud to say that we make most of our food in-house at Choices Kitchen.

Choices Kitchen is the lifeblood of Choices Cafe, as it supplies a constant fresh supply of homemade foods to be prepared at each Choices Cafe location

We use organic ingredients, and we source them locally whenever possible. This allows to ensure there are no toxins, pesticides, or preservatives in our food, and that we are preparing meals that contain high levels of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. It also reaffirms our commitment to sustainability and caring for our Mother Earth.

…by the way, we also encourage you to be ‘homemade’ in your own kitchen too! And homemade doesn’t always have to relate to food.

You can make yourself all kinds of planet friendly home-goods, including: Mouthwash, Facemask, Hair Conditioner and our favorite toothpaste we make for our own home…

Here’s a homemade toothpaste we adore…It’s safe from toxins, and its fluoride free. Did we mention it tastes awesome, and our dentist gave it a double thumbs up?! But don’t take our word for it. Give this simple, pure, homemade paste a try yourself:

CocoMint Toothpaste

2 tablespoons coconut oil

3 tablespoons baking soda

1/2 small packet of stevia powder

20-25 drops of peppermint oil*

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl, using a fork.

*Add about half of the amount of peppermint oil to start, and test the toothpaste to see how much you want/like. You could also really add any other flavor, as the peppermint is more just for flavor, but it makes it taste like real toothpaste.

 

Ok, we know our toothbrush is MASSIVE…but it’s epic. Made sustainably, cruelty-free, and scrubs your mouth like a champ. Check it: RADIUS
