At Nature's EnerQi, we strive to provide products in proportions that can satisfy all the senses while providing balanced nutrition for the whole body, mind and spirit. When all of our senses and nutritional needs are satisfied, it is the greatest feeling.
Our senses of sight, smell and taste are the first guardians of our health before any food is digested and nourishes our body. Before language was invented and Nutrition facts labels were required, humans have depended on those senses to determine what is healthy and necessary to nourish our bodies. For us at Nature's EnerQi, good food is not good enough if it does not taste good and satisfies our primary guardians of our health.
We choose ingredients and products that are as close to how nature provides them for us. Nature has preprocessed these nutrients for us for eons and humans have survived all this time because we have adapted to nature's food processing techniques. We try to make use of that tremendous knowledge base for ourselves and all of our customers.
All of our cooked foods are cooked with water (steamed or brewed), the essense of life on earth. Oil is only used for taste or texture. As a consequence, very little is used. In the first 6 months we have been open, we have used less than a quart of canola oil. Steam can certainly over cook food but it never burns the food or produces any smoke... better for the environment.
