Is your food beige?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Food should be vibrant, rich with colour and never dull.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Beige food is lacking in essential phytonutrients and antioxidants.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Those colour pigments that make our fruit and veggies eye candy are absolutely critical for cellular health and vitality. They fight inflammation, provide the mitochondria with fuel and make sure apoptosis (cell suicide) happens when it should.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We're certain that the food we make for you is the most colourful and vibrant in all of Melbourne because we want all of that for you. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Here's the thing, companies that promote weight loss often do it at the expense of nutritional density and that means you miss out on the whole health, LIFE-extending benefits of an anti-inflammatory, colour-rich diet. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Feeling good about yourself is more than just losing weight, though that will happen naturally when you eat with us.

It's about brain clarity, less aches and pains, a happier gut, clearer skin, a better mood and all the other bits and pieces that make you a thriving human.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠It’s time to ditch the beige & boring friends!!!
You can't calorie count your way through life.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Where is the joy in that? How do you be spontaneous? What does that do to one's mind over the years?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Swap the numbers for real food made with real ingredients and fall in love with eating again.
The aroma of this dish alone is enough to make you swoon.....⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Evocative North African spices with bursts of sweetness from apricot and dates that soak up the delicious gravy. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Served alongside a bed of wild rice infused with orange zest and crushed almonds. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Such a treat for the senses and a new favourite on our dinner menu just waiting for you 😊
Heads Up Friends!!

We are aware of an issue that was affecting the checkout ability for some customers.

This problem has now been resolved and we would love for you to come back and try again 😊

Orders close Wednesday 10AM.
The colour purple is one of the most powerful when it comes to the food we eat. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Anthocyanins are the antioxidants responsible for that beautiful pigment and their stunning colour belies the power they hold for food as medicine.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Antidiabetic, antiobesity and antiinflammatory are just some of their potential superpowers. They upregulate cellular apoptosis, improve insulin sensitivity, lipid profiles and suppress weight gain. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Beyond all that health jargon though is the simple fact - they make food delicious.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Antiageing is as simple as the food we put in our mouth every day and it will do the job much better than any expensive face cream ever will. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We make living longer and healthier tastier 😋
Whilst we don't think this stat is necessarily true for Australia,  you can have the convenience of prepared food AND good health..... when you let us take care of the food 😁

We've got your back and we know that time is the one commodity you cannot buy more of. 

Let us do the nourishing so you can do the living.
......how we feel around this time of the year when all conversations end up about football 😂
It's Juice Cleanse season no doubt about it. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Last week saw our cold press juicers getting a fantastic old workout and this week looks no different.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Out with the old and in with the new!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Clear out the Winter sluggishness with an abundance of phytonutrients ready to flood your cells full of antioxidants and provide a clean sweep of your digestive system.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Choose from a one day cleanse option or commit to three days of nothing but juicy goodness.  ⁠⠀

We are so happy to finally be able to return back to our roots with a more environmentally friendly salad container.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
As we shared in our insta stories over the weekend, the biggest problem for us as business owners has been a lack of green packaging options that actually work. It's not enough to be aesthetically pleasing and ecofriendly if they don't function as they are supposed to. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The biggest problem for consumers however, is a lack of access to composting or recycling facilities. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Victoria has 79 councils and of those, only 17 offer food organics collection to its residents or allow compostable packaging materials to be placed in Green Waste bins. It's simply not good enough.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Here's how to dispose of our new salad containers thoughtfully -⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The base is 100% home compostable and biodegradable. If you have access to composting or green waste facilities that allow inclusion of compostable packaging - that's how you will dispose of it. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you don't have access to either of those - rinse your base so it is clean of food residue and place with your cardboard recycling. Our bases are made of reclaimed paper pulp and will be accepted but only if they are CLEAN.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The lids are recyclable only and will go with your other plastics. Please understand that at this point in time, there are no compostable lid options that work!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's not perfect but it's better and we are still moving the needle in the right direction. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you received a delivery from us this week, we would love to hear any feedback on the new containers ok!

Team MGO 😊
How we like to have our Probiotic Elixir...... with a little ice and sipped slowly to relish the party in our mouth.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Think fermented coconut water & pineapple kefir paired with plenty of cold pressed turmeric and ginger root. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's an anti-inflammatory gold mine of goodness that super feeds your microbiome with 27 billion CFU of good bacteria per cup.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The most delicious antidote to allergies you'll ever encounter and sooooo good for supporting a happy gut. ⁠⠀

Massive advocates of everything this man shares -

“Farms and food production should be at least as important as who pierced their navel in Hollywood this week. As a culture, we think we're well educated, but I'm not sure that what we've learned necessarily helps us survive.”

Right on.
Waste is a design flaw.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
No truer words have been spoken when it comes to the meal delivery industry.
⁠⠀
We've held a vision to deliver you an earth friendly service from the very beginning, some six years ago now. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Unfortunately packaging design and innovation has been a real hindrance to this process but slowly, Australia is catching up.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We've had to make some compromises over the years because of this reason. If product quality is affected by poor design - that's not good for anyone. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's been a real challenge to find compostable or biodegradable containers for our salads that are actually well designed, stay intact during transport, are aesthetically pleasing and keep your food looking and tasting great. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Finding biodegradable sauce pots that don't leak has felt like mission impossible and compostable soup pouches.....well we almost gave up there. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We are beyond stoked to let you know that we've managed to find solutions to the last of our remaining problems, taking us another step closer to fulfilling our vision.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Over the next few months, we'll be transitioning over to more earth-friendly options for the remainder of our items that weren't. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We really hope you appreciate the efforts we're going to in order to kiss plastic goodbye!⁠⠀

Well nourished skin responds better to sunlight then nutrient deficient skin.

Humans are harvesters of chlorophyll pigments and our bodies convert the sun's light into cellular, mitochondrial energy.

Chlorophyll which is the 'blood' of plants helps our mitochondria to thrive and slow down the ageing process.

Pigment rich plants are an amazing source of protection for our body against sun damage and in fact, provide us with an internal form of SPF which is sooooooo cool.

What we ingest determines how our skin will respond to sunlight so it's best we make it full of the good things!

Antioxidant-rich veggies and brightly pigmented fruits combined with luscious fats brimming with nutrients and filtered water are our best defence over toxic sunscreens any day.

(but that's a post for another day) 🤓

Did you know that we can increase our sun protection factor by up to 30% just by eating a tomato rich diet?

Green tea, turmeric, all the leafy greens, berries and pure unprocessed dark chocolate are some of our most powerful alleys against sunburn thanks to their super antioxidant status.

Right now it's Spring for us Aussies and that means our Vitamin D levels are at their lowest for the year. Our stores that were built up before Winter are all but depleted and it's time to dose ourselves with plenty of sunshine!

Mornings to solar noon are the best time to get sun upon as much naked (no sunscreen) skin as possible friends to replenish our Vitamin D levels.

Up your veggie, fruit and quality fat intake to reap the maximum healing benefits of the sun ☀️

Oh and for bonus points - check out the D Minder App which calculates your geographic location, current cloud cover, time of the year and let's you know how long to bask in the sun's rays + how much Vitamin D will be generated by your efforts.
You do make friends with salad.....⁠⠀
⁠⠀
A phytonutrient rich diet is actually your very best, all-natural SPF protection.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Yep, we can actually boost our body's own internal sun protection system through eating plenty of antioxidant rich veggies and fruits whilst at the same time, slowing down the ageing process.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Nobody likes a nasty case of sunburn or wrinkly skin so now is the time to up your salad intake friends!

Spring is in the air....and with it comes Hayfever for many.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Medications like Zyrtec are part of a billion-dollar industry that kicks into overdrive at this time of the year. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Antihistamines are designed to stop histamines from binding to histamine receptors – however, antihistamine medications don’t REMOVE histamines from the body which means they are still free to float around and bind to other receptor sites.  This explains why Zyrtec can relieve a runny or stuffed up nose and itchy eyes, but is ineffective for headaches, dizziness and other common hayfever symptoms.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Antihistamine medications only deal with the result – not the cause and furthermore, a number of studies show they can deplete DAO enzyme activity. This is bad news as our DAO (diamine oxidase) enzymes are critical to maintaining proper levels of histamine in our system. It's pretty counterproductive to rely on antihistamine medications.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Leaky Gut, Gut Dysbiosis of any sort, Candida or taking NSAID medications (which destroy the gut wall) make you more prone to experiencing allergies. Our gut health is absolutely integral to kissing seasonal allergies good by once and for all!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Eating an anti-inflammatory diet free from the common allergens of gluten, grains, dairy and refined sugars, upping your filtered water intake, including digestive enzymes and specific strains of probiotics can work wonders. Truly. You do not have to suffer from hay fever. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Bifidobacterium, B. infantis and B. longum probiotic strains suppress histamine release, lower histamine levels and decrease allergy symptoms. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that blocks histamine release while Vitamin C and Bromelain fight histamine symptoms. Nettle Tea and NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) both also have important roles in controlling histamine-induced symptoms.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Wouldn't you rather ditch the med's and do the work necessary to never need an antihistamine again??
For all lovers of those very moorish organic cashews and pepitas that feature on our much loved Thai Chicken Salad, you can now indulge in a whole bag!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Be warned, they disappear quick. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Think lemongrass, a hint of chili flakes, lime zest and coriander massaged all over our organic roasted cashews and pepitas. Perfect as a handbag snack, trail mix or to accompany your favourite craft beer👌🏻
