The Vegan Duchess’ menu combines tones of superfoods and we all know how good these are to maintain proper health and prevent aging.
The first name that comes to mind when thinking of superfoods is Kale, a dark leafy green vegetable that is high in iron, calcium and anti-oxidants. While most people are not big fans of the taste of kale, they rapidly change their minds once they try our kale chips, Asian kale salad or the delicious green protein machine smoothie.
Nutritional Yeast is an inactive yeast that is grown on beet molasses. It is a complete protein, very high in B vitamins and fortified with vitamin B-12. Enjoy it on our cheesy kale chips, almond “parmesan”, or marinara sauce.
Chia Seeds are small seeds that are an excellent source of B vitamins and calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc. Soak them and they triple their size, taking on a tapioca-like consistency. Enjoy it in our chia salsa or chocolate chia pudding.
Buckwheat is a gluten-free “pseudo” grain (from the rhubarb family) that is high in protein and B vitamins. We use it dehydrated in our pizza crusts or granola.
Raw Cacao is one of the highest sources of anti-oxidants available to human consumption. Chocolate chia pudding, hot chocolate, chocolate granola are only a few of the raw cacao containing foods on The Vegan Duchess menu.
Wheat-Free Tamari is a type of soy sauce that is gluten-free and alcohol-free. It is lower in sodium than traditional soy sauce and provides niacin (vitamin B3), manganese, and mood-enhancing tryptophan, besides antioxidants and some benefits to the digestive tract, according to some studies. Enjoy it in our Asian kale salad or almond clusters on your raw pad thai!
Maca is a Peruvian root that has a malt-like flavour. It is said to be good for balancing hormone levels, energy and even increasing libido. Our mega popular raw pad thai comes with a Maca sauce.
