1.

We use no bleached sugars or salts, hydrogenated oils, preservatives (other than hand-harvested sea salt), food colorings, or chemical additives such as saccharine, sodium, aspartame, and sodium benzoate.

2.

We use only stainless steel pots, pans, and cooking utensils. Teflon (from pots, pans, and utensils coated with it) flakes off and mixes into foods, with horrible health consequences such as birth defects like low birth-weight and fetal brain damage. Aluminum slowly poisons the body and irreversibly raises its level of toxicity. A light metal alloy, Aluminum corrodes at a markedly faster rate than stainless steel. It flakes off (similar to Teflon, see above) and contaminates foods. Stainless steel doesn't crack, break, or flake during extreme or sudden exposure to heat; it contaminates the least of any metal, including copper and iron.

All Down To Earth locations are brightly lit and lively places designed to be joyful and welcoming environments where the hungry and the weary come to sit, shop, learn, eat, drink, talk, and laugh. Our friendly team-members are trained in macrobiotic principles as well as the latest practices of proper hygiene, food handling, and food preparation. Good with names and faces, they will soon become your friends, giving free hugs to the ladies and free ego boosts to the gents. Come get yours, today!

Childhood conditions and events, environmental exposures, and hormonal or genetic changes can cause individuals to develop allergies to certain foods. At Down To Earth, we are acutely aware of and always prepared to meet the nutritional challenges such allergies pose. We will gladly tailor any recipe to the needs of customers who care deeply about their health.


5.

All of the foods and drinks we serve are made with the finest and most nutritious ingredients. Moreover, we are constantly on the lookout for superfoods such as wheat-grass, açaí, and quinoa to incorporate into our menus. Rich in trace elements the body itself cannot readily produce (magnesium, iron, B-12, and others), superfoods contribute to a healthy lifestyle and are known to boost levels of happiness, satisfaction, and contentment. Stop by and grab some superfoods, today!

6.

At Down To Earth, we believe in strict adherence to modern standards of excellence in hygiene, cleanliness, food preparation, food handling, personal appearance, and operational integrity. Furthermore, we only partner with companies who share our dedication to excellence in everything they do.


7.

We understand the challenges of growing organic foods in a chemical world and are committed to the use and preparation of organic items, products, and ingredients.

8.

Our high nutritional standards and macrobiotic visions for the future rest upon foundations set forth by the inestimable Michio Kushi. For more information please visit Kushi Institute and read Mr. Kushi's books “One Peaceful World,” “The Macrobiotic Way,” and “The Cancer Prevention Diet.”
