Return to Food - Philosophies

1. Return people to real food. Food that is nourishing, energizing and wholesome. The way nature intended.
Millions of people are not eating real food. They are eating something cleverly designed to look, smell and taste like it but often has the opposite effect of real food. There is a point in processing where the food is so far from its natural state that it no longer serves the purpose it was intended for; nourishing, energizing and protecting the body so that the species eating it can live, thrive and propagate. In fact, most processed foods actually become toxic and addictive. This type of “food” has been stripped from precious nutrients in order to extend shelf life and increase profits. This renders the food nutrient deficient and addictive thus perpetuating a cycle of malnourishment and addiction leading to obesity and triggering thousands of other diseases. Wow, I know big claim indeed!

2. Create a place where people can learn more about where food comes from and how it impacts their body and the environment.

Return to’s mission is to educate people about what “food” is today and raise awareness of how it impacts our body and environment and create education, solutions and products that help you and those you love, return to eating real food. Our desire is to show you what Mother Nature would prepare in her kitchen, to make it simple, delicious and pleasurable.

4. Listen to your own body! There is a lot of information out there and only you know what is right for you.
We don’t claim to be perfect eaters, nor do we believe there is only one way to eat. We love healthy whole foods and have seen dramatic positive changes in our lives.

5. Promote Long Term Thinking – Understand and overcome the instant gratification trap.
The processed food that accounts for the majority of new western world diet is filled with chemicals that create addictive symptoms in your body. Understanding these food cravings can be the first step to helping yourself change your diet for the better. We’ll be providing cleanses, tips and information about trigger foods. For many new-found clean eaters overcoming this obstacle is the answer to sticking to a healthier diet.


You managed to communicate a powerful message to them more effectively than the professional athletes they have been exposed to. It helps that you live and breathe what you are talking about and everyone responded to your easy to live by balanced approach that doesn’t take enormous sacrifice.
