DELICIOUS

Our food comes from authentic Greek culinary culture that is famous for its great taste. We use exclusively organic pulses from Greece which are super tasty because they are grown in ideal microclimate conditions. We choose to use only organic, locally sourced vegetables for better taste, increased amount of nutrients and respect for mother nature. The Organic Extra Virgin Greek Olive Oil, delicious Mediterranean Spices and Aegean Sea salt also play a big role in our great taste.

The ultimate truth is that these are recipes passed on through generations of Greek grandmothers and not created in laboratories and I am sure you will be able to taste the difference.

NUTRITIOUS

Pulses are very low in fat, packed with protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals. Our ready meals, recently awarded by the 'Free From Food Awards' do not contain any allergens, additives or chemicals. They are prepared in the traditional way, soaked and sprouted and they are slow cooked to maintain their high nutritional content. They induce brain activity and keep us full for longer, offering long lasting energy. With zero cholesterol and a low glycemic index, pulses are suitable for people who want to control their weight, as well as decrease their risk of cancer and heart disease.

We revisit traditional Greek recipes from a modern nutritional perspective and we discover how wisely all the ingredients have been combined with each other. We refine them to aid digestion and to help our bodies absorb all the nutrients available. We add the Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Fresh Lemon Juice at the end of the cooking process to protect the nutrients and antioxidants from the heat. We add Turmeric, a super antioxidant and we combine it with Black Pepper to make it bioavailable. These are only a few of the things we do in order to ensure the food tastes good and that it keeps everyone happy and healthy.

SUSTAINABLE

Our Ready Meals:

We choose to cook Pulses because they are the most sustainable crop in the history of food and have played an important role in the preservation of humanity and in civilisation growth throughout history. With the highest protein content in the plant kingdom, pulses also have an important role in our future.

Packing our food in plastic just didn't feel right. Instead, we use a unique, fully compostable material made of plants! Our innovative packaging was the first one to get approved by the Soil Association because it is certified GM free. Microbes, heat and moisture will break the Gaia Pulses pots down in less than 18 weeks at a compost facility. The resulting compost will retain nutrients vital for healthy soils and that is why it is so important that the raw material is GM Free certified. The majority of the compostable products in the market at the moment derive from genetically modified corn which means harmful poisons go back into the soil.

In the UK there is still a long way to go in the creation of industrial compost facilities but still using compostable is far better than plastic because it is made from renewable feedstocks, uses less non-renewable energy in production and the CO2 emissions of its life cycle are four times lower.

Our dishes delivered sustainably in Reusable Containers:

We were the 1 st ones to offer organic food in compostable packaging and now we are the 1 st ones to offer organic food in reusable containers. Yes, for us it is all about integrity and focusing on sustainability all the way.

It is commonly known that recycling in the UK is just not working. Climate change dictates real actions towards eliminating our carbon footprint and we just cannot produce rubbish every time we drink or eat.

At Gaia, we make our delicious dishes available in reusable containers for unlimited uses. We are collaborating with other mindful local organizations and we deliver our goods in reusable containers by cargo bikes. We are all working together for developing a strong local and sustainable economy.

They say change begins from within us. Then it is happening in our home, our
neighborhood and the world.

Thank you for not loosing hope
