The launch of the first vegan, raw food delivery service in Austin is Super Natural Food and it is the brainchild of entrepreneur and founder Marina Zelle who noticed a void in the Austin market for healthy, organic prepackaged meals designed for busy individuals with fast paced lives. How cool – and convenient – is that?
Serving individual customers and businesses, Super Natural Food’s mission is to help individuals improve their health and eliminate cravings with a no-brainer, easy-to-follow and enjoyable meal plan. The program is simple, convenient and doesn’t involve starvation or deprivation. By any means. A raw, vegan diet consists of unprocessed, raw plant foods that have not been heated above 118 degrees. Raw or living foods contain important natural enzymes, which aid in digestion. We learned that cooking with temperatures above 118 degrees destroys the natural enzymes and vitamins found in foods and results in the formation of carcinogens and mutagens such as acrylamides and AGEs which alter the structure of DNA, interfere with molecular and cellular structure throughout the body, create free radicals and inflammation and are known to contribute to many age related diseases, as well as cancer, according to the Super Natural Food folks.
Super Natural Food makes eating healthy easy. Its program is geared towards individuals who are interested in eating healthy, but do not have the time or know-how to prepare tasty and healthy meals for themselves. There are no shopping lists or recipes necessary. Client’s foods and juices are delivered fresh every day in portable containers that can be taken on the go. Customers receive an email update every day to inform them about the current menu items.
It’s simple, too. Deliveries are made each evening between 7:00PM and 10:00PM. Clients have the option to choose from a two-day, five-day or seven-day meal plan. Actually, it’s a reboot for your health. The program can help customers boost their energy levels, lose weight, sleep better, improve digestion, kick their cravings to the curb and experience greater mental clarity by eating right. Eating animal products (such as meat, dairy products and eggs) has been shown in many studies to raise a person’s risk of developing cancer, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, heart disease, osteoporosis, obesity and a number of other illnesses and conditions. Super Natural Food’s vegan, raw foods and beverages can help people obtain optimal health, feel better than ever and empowered to make better diet and lifestyle choices.
