For those of you that have been welcomed with open arms into our Narrabeen store, you'll see that we are in fact attached to The Whole Leaf Cafe on the corner of Lagoon and Waterloo. This is where the early days of Electric Eyes really began with many of our wares being displayed there.
Nowadays they keep us caffeinated and well fed with their delicious and nurturing whole foods and beverages. So today we return the favour and answer two of the questions they are regularly asked..
What exactly are Whole Foods?
This seems to be a modern term bandied about these days when actually the concept is as old as the hills…
Whole foods are plant-based foods that are as unprocessed and unrefined as possible. These include whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables.
So then, why should I choose Whole Foods?
These nutrient dense natural foods provide vital nutrients for your body in the form of fibre, vitamins and minerals with low added sugar and fat. Leaving you satisfied for longer in more ways than one.
Don't worry, they've got a few extra bits and pieces in the form of sweet artisan treats – guess we can’t deny the benefits of a little decadence every now & then! But you'll find them all lovingly crafted by local and sustainable suppliers.
Oh and the coffee? A dead-set necessity.
From Earth to Your Bowl” - The perfect description for our whole food friends next door.
