A Lifelong Passion for keeping people healthy
At Leafy Greens we support sustainable, organic agriculture and responsible business practices. This reflects our deep respect and love for the planet and for those around us. We use organic ingredients wherever possible, and guarantee that our products are free from refined sugars, 100% dairy-free, free from any added preservatives and are mostly gluten-free.
It has been established by science that a mostly plant-based diet is one of the best steps you can take towards reducing your carbon footprint, and at Leafy Greens saving your health and saving the planet go hand in hand. So join us.
By eating from the Earth, and following a mostly plant-based diet, we are feeding at the bottom of the food chain. This allows us to eliminate a lot of dieases, worms, bacteria and viruses that usually affect upper feeders. We harness more of the Sun’s energy and gain access to the mineral gifts from the soil that our bodies so desperately need.
Our mission is to bring people back to life, back to eating living foods. To eat simply again. To rediscover the joys of the basics. To savour the beauty of each fruit and vegetable, and to bring their flavours to their fullness and enjoy them for health and longevity.
Dried fruits, nuts and more vegetables than you can imagine are used to whip up the most delectable dishes full of flavour and zest, leaving your belly warm and your mind revived. Tasty alternatives can be found for all of your favourite dishes, including pizza, adding the nutrients you need along with creating a taste explosion for your senses. Vegetarian dishes can be created for every meal of the day, with desserts and drinks being 100% organic and vegan-friendly as well.
Eating with the SeasonOne of the many things that make Leafy Greens unique is our ability to serve fresh foods that are in season.
Workshops and courses are the way in which we share what we have learnt over the years. Good eating and healthy living are not just reserved for the restaurant but to be enjoyed at home as well. Day long courses are often hosted at our vegetarian restaurant in Johannesburg (Muldersdrift) and we invite all who want to learn vegan cooking, to enjoy a day of healthy eating and healthy living. Regardless of your cooking expertise level you will be able to create fabulous vegan meals with these recipes. Organic dining is not just for organic restaurants in Johannesburg.
