We love to eat. Having a delicious meal is an outstanding and memorable experience. However, many foods leave us wanting to take a nap right after we eat. Ideally we could always eat awesome food and feel good after. That’s why at Roots, we are a natural kitchen.
Nature does an outstanding job of supporting life. The sun shines. There are nutrients in the ground. Plants grow and produce oxygen. It works. That is why we trust nature when it comes to food and primarily serve things that grow. Natural stuff.
Taste is the most important part of any meal. Delicious food makes us happy. Over time, humans have gotten phenomenal at cooking great food. As a result, Roots needed kitchens, a space to cook food that people can get excited about.
Nature is a bunch of mutually beneficial relationships. Life thrives and develops around these bonds. Ours with food has existed for a very long time. It’s no coincidence our bodies need the stuff in a tomato. That’s just how nature works.
We started cooking to make food taste better. As our tech developed, we went from simply cooking natural food to making our own. A strawberry glazed donut was once a wheat plant, sugar cane, and maybe a strawberry. Undoubtedly an impressive process, and we got to try tons of new foods because of it. However, the more we process food, the more it loses the good stuff we need from it.
A lot of these new foods tire us out as opposed to helping us thrive. We are built to use what nature gives us. That’s how it works. This shows most when we feel the awesome effects of natural food.
THE BENEFITS OF EATING NATURAL FOOD ARE AMAZING AND FELT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY
- DEEP SLEEP
- FAST RECOVERY
- HIGH ENERGY
Our bodies are constantly using what’s found in food to perform basic living functions. Natural food supplies the body with exactly what it needs to function to the best of its ability. We, as humans, can exist without natural foods, but we’ve found the more of these we eat, the better we feel. In our experience, doing so consistently also has some cool long lasting effects.
- Productivity. You have more energy, crash less often, get better sleep, and you don’t get as bored in class or work.
- Resilience. You get sick less often, your hangovers are not as bad, your body recovers faster from physical activity.
- Happiness. Quite simply you just feel better.
Life is about enjoyment. There are tons of awesome foods out there. Eating amazing meals that also support us brings us joy both during and after the meal. That’s a lot of joy.
Food is a powerful tool. If you are a dog walker, accountant, 3rd grader, or father, literally anyone can benefit by eating more natural stuff. Whether you want to run your first marathon or go bar hopping more often, eat natural.
EAT DELICIOUS FOOD OFTEN. EAT MOSTLY STUFF THAT GROWS.
