Product of the month! Wild Foodies

Here at Peaches we understand that food is good for the soul and the body! Which is why Wild Foodies is one of our favourites. Their story as a healthy food provider goes back to the 70’s when people used to line up to take home their variety of gourmet soups and salads. After nearly 35 years in the business they have been exploring the best ways to deliver the healthiest options to their customers and now to our Peaches family. Our current favourite is their range of soups, which let’s face it… during the colder months is the best!

So, what’s the story behind these great products? The soups from Wild Foodies are really just genuinely amazing products. This is due to the produce used to make them. All ingredients are sourced from the freshest farm gate produce and believe us, you can taste the difference. In addition to this all ingredients that go into the soups are 100% natural. By only using natural ingredients you don’t need to worry about any nasty artificial preservatives, flavours or colours. It’s just all natural ingredients shining through and making the soups taste amazing. We find that especially as people become more health conscious it is key to know that our food is nourishing our bodies and that all the ingredients are going to be working overtime for us.

The impressiveness of these soups doesn’t just stop at the ingredients. The cooking process also makes them a standout. A special slow cooking method is used to retain the nutrients from all of the ingredients. Standard cooking processes generally overcook foods and leads to minimal amounts of nutrients being retained! Soup is also a great way to increase vegetable consumption, with many people struggling to get their daily five, soup sure does make it a little easier! Additional we love soups because they allow for us to be warmed from the inside and provide a filling and comforting meal. With all of the Wild Foodies soups you can be guaranteed to be providing your body with wholesome ingredients that will be benefiting you for hours to come.

If the above hasn’t sold you on why these soups are so great, this little fun fact will. There is a strict no wastage policy at Wild Foodies. This means that every aspect of the ingredients is used. Meals are strictly made to order making wastage nearly non-existent. Any items that do become left overs are donated to charity or returned back to the producer to become delicious compost. For us at Peaches we understand the importance of zero wastage and seeing one of our suppliers so dedicated to making it a reality is really top-quality stuff.

Have we tempted you enough yet? Because our tastebuds are jumping for joy at the thought of a Wild Foodies soup! Come on down and try our variety of Wild Foodies soups today and don’t forget to let us know which flavour is your favourite.

Want a healthy Easter this year? We’ve got you!

As Easter fast approaches, we prepare ourselves and our bodies to consume the whole years’ worth of chocolate in one day. We’ve accepted the fact that we’ll be feeling bloated, our skin will break out, not to mention we’ll be riddled with guilt as we drag ourselves to the gym on Easter Monday morning. But just for a second, imagine a universe where you wouldn’t go to bed guilty on Sunday night. Imagine a universe where you would go to bed on Sunday night feeling healthy! You know us, so you know we’re all about keeping it fresh and healthy, so let’s have a look at how we can help you to enjoy everything you usually do over Easter, without the guilt.

Here at Peaches, we offer a wide range of wholesome, organic food, and when it comes to Easter treats, we’re going above and beyond! And they’re not just for the grown-ups! The kids will love these ideas too! For the traditional Easter egg with a difference, there’s the Moo Free vegan chocolate eggs in a range of flavours, including Bunnycomb and Orange! These are great for the kids, because what’s Easter without an egg from the Easter bunny!

But if you’re looking for the real deal, without the high amounts of sugar, look no further than dark chocolate. Chocolate containing over 70% cocoa means there is less sugar and saturated fat, which is the bad stuff. Peaches has a huge range of amazing, quality chocolate that will ensure you get your fix over the holidays. Try the Loving Earth range for vegan, gluten free, and non-GMO choccy in flavours that will have you celebrating Easter every weekend! Try their 85% dark, or if you’re looking for something a little more adventurous, try Turkishly Delightful or Coffee Ka-pow!

And if you want to get really crazy, try the Pana Chocolate range of raw, organic, dairy, soy, gluten AND refined sugar free! Woah! There will be no regrets here. Try Eighty for 80% cocoa, or Sour Cherry and Vanilla or Rose for something more exciting!

And don’t forget, chocolate has a whole range of uses, so don’t be limited to eating it in bar form. Why not melt it down and dip it in some fresh seasonal fruits like bananas or strawberries?

There are so many ideas out there if you are looking for a healthy Easter this year. Don’t fall into the trap of binging on sugary treats over the long weekend. Come into Peaches and check out our awesome range of products to make your Easter the healthiest and happiest yet!

Product Of The Month- Probiotic Solutions cleaning products

This month’s product of the month is the only certified organic cleaning products brand in Australia, the Probiotic Solutions cleaning products! Here at Peaches Fresh Food we are offering 15% ALL MONTH!

Did you know that the average home consists of about 800 different types of bacteria?! Now that’s a bugging issue. Most of us spend A LOT of money on various brands and products in the hope to clean these germs in our homes, but unbeknown to us, many of these products are abrasive to surfaces and can trigger allergic reactions, from asthma to Eczema. Instead of these harmful products, you should be using all organic and natural products to clean your home, such as the Probiotic Solutions cleaning products.

Think of your home as a little eco- system, filled with lots of good and bad bacteria. Using harsh chemicals will kill everything in sight, but then the bad bacteria will soon take over. If you use Probiotic Solutions cleaning products, the millions of good bacteria in every bottle will make peace with the bad bacteria to create a clean and happy place.

4 BILLION years of cleaning experience, probiotics have been cleaning our environment since the beginning of time. Now they can clean your home! It all started in 2013 in Botany, New South Wales, where Michelle Perkins, the director and founder of Probiotic Solutions, launched the consumer-ready, all natural, all organic Probiotic Solutions range. All of the cleaning products only contain organic products that are safe, such as purified water, sea salt, essential oils and even brown sugar.

Most of us today are aware of the dangers of harmful chemicals, so having a safe, natural product that is nontoxic and organic is becoming more and more essential as time goes on.

The Probiotic Solutions range has 7 products in 5 different blends such as lemon myrtle, lemongrass, grapefruit and rosemary. The various products are essential for the different rooms in our homes, such as ‘Mop Me’ which is for the floors, (basically it’s like a spa treatment for the floor). There are the products for the bathroom such as ‘Bathroom Bliss’, which cleans the surfaces and prevents soap scum and oils to build up and ‘Room Refresh’ which will leave the bathroom smelling fresh and clean.

If chemical free cleaning is important to you and you want a safer, fresher and organically cleaned household, grab some products today and give it a whirl!
