Light & Love
This is a fun combination and could go great with your morning coffee, especially if that morning coffee is in a surf-and-sand paradise. Both maca and coconut are known to boost energy so why not have it for breakfast? Unless your oatmeal is the jealous type.
Reducing Food Waste
Ever have a fridge with some leftovers from here and there and instead of tossing them in the trash, you made a masterpiece? Well, you not only did something amazing for your taste buds and stomach, but for the planet as well. You reduced food waste and helped the planet in the process.
Upcycling Food is the new recycling as far as we are concerned. Instead of tossing the avocado seed aside, we upcycle it! This not only helps reduce food waste but also utilizes the nutrition of the fruit’s core. Or as we like to say: The power of the pit. Despite being about 18 percent of the avocado, the pit hosts more than 70 percent of its antioxidants!
Donating to the Upcycled Food Economy
Up to 40% of food is wasted, and that's a big problem for society and the planet. Upcycled food prevents this problem by creating new, high-quality products from otherwise wasted - but perfectly nutritious - ingredients.
60% of people want to buy more upcycled food products, and that's because 95% of us want to do our part to reduce food waste.
Join us as we build the sustainable food system of the future.
