Health & Benefits
3 MAIN PATHS TO HEALTH & WELLNESS…. FOOD, EXERCISE & ATTITUDE.
FOOD – We’ve got you covered …
All of the ingredients used at Wildest Greens have been carefully chosen with optimal health benefits in mind. Almost all of our ingredients are ‘certified organic’ and if we can’t find what we need that has been ‘certified’ we will purchase ‘naturally’ grown products. This means that the produce or products are from farms that use organic growing standards but haven’t ye sought the ‘official organic certification’. Some small farms cannot financially afford the certification process. The poultry and grass-fed meats here at Wildest Greens are free-range and not injected or fed hormones or antibiotics. The fish we purchase is carefully selected and is either wild caught or raised in the wild. We also avoid large fish that may contain high levels of mercury or parasites.
Our healthy dishes have been created to appeal to a wide array of eating styles and to create a menu that would allow people that have diverse eating styles to have a space that they can come together and share a meal, conversation and an enjoyable memory. Dine on ‘Vegan Faux Tuna, Bison Burgers, Omelettes, Avo Toast, Buddha Bowls, Smoothies, Coffees, Wines, Organic Vanilla ice cream and the best organic, vegan, gluten-free, Carrot/Beet/Blueberry cake you’ve ever had.
We threw out the deep fryer that was left as part of the equipment from the last restaurant operation here. All of our crispy crunch foods are that way because they’ve been baked, toasted, roasted or dehydrated. The primary sweeteners we use are dates, maple syrup, monk fruit, or organic raw cane sugar. The ‘miracle root’ Turmeric is used in some of our salad dressings, juices and elixirs. It’s shipped in regularly from our organic farm in Kauai, Secret Beach Organics. We even have a turmeric latte made with our ‘Four Barrel’ coffee blend.
There is so much healthy goodness on our menu, it would take you weeks to try everything. Speaking of ‘goodness’, we aim to make healthy food taste amazing and not like what you might imagine ‘health food’ to be like.
You can find lots of exercise options with flyers that are available at our front desk. If you’re interested in yoga, our owner, Denise DuBarry, also owns two of the best yoga studios in the Coachella Valley, Bikram Yoga Plus. With locations in Palm Desert (36869 Cook Street – Cook & Gerald Ford) and Palm Springs (611 S. Palm Canyon), the studios offer over 10 styles of yoga, some hot and some not, with yoga and Pilates classes for every fitness level. Studies show that a simple daily walk can make a big difference in your overall mental and physical health.
