A quote on their website, from Denise Rispoli Becknell, owner of Leafy Greens Cafe, “As a long-time Raw Foodist, I am living proof that eating a healthy diet does wondrous things to a person’s body. I believe that, along with eating abundant fresh vegetables, it is important that we select ONLY NON-GMO food. The GMO Project website will provide you with a wealth of information on how to protect yourself and your loved ones from, what I consider, the biggest threat to the human race. One way to avoid GMO food is to eat organic. Although only 8 crops are currently genetically modified, the food industry utilizes these crops (mostly corn and soy) in ingredients that have “hidden” GMO-content. It is imperative that people become educated about this because GMO food is now being considered the leading cause of all major illness in our country. I sincerely believe that the reason my health turned around was because, in eating solely organic food, I eliminated and detoxed from GMO ingredients. ”
Years ago I foolishly avoided Leafy Greens once when I was invited by some, at the time, healthier living friends. They assured me that it was fresh and delicious, yet I was stubborn and stupid. Months later I was invited again and this time, thankfully, I listened to them…. and WOW was I instantly converted. They truly have organic, gluten free, vegan food with flavor and yummy tastes and their desserts are AMAZING!! So why don’t those of you who haven’t been yet, grab lunch or dinner at Leafy Greens Cafe on Central Avenue in beautiful DTSP and find out for yourself!
