A New Leaf Turned…

At LeafSide, we believe there must be better ways to do food — the most important daily necessity at the heart of health (literally!), and in turn, quality of life.  

“When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.”

― Herophilus, 4th century BCE

As longtime adherents to whole-foods, plant-based eating, over the last 20+ years we’ve tried every time-saving trick and hack that we could find to regularly eat healthy food, while leading busy lives.  But a no-compromises solution still proved elusive.

One day we decided to write down what would be needed to finally solve this daily problem.  There would have to be a way to eat that meets all these five requirements simultaneously:

  1. Superior Nutrition — based on the best nutrition science consensus
  2. High Convenience — ready in minutes & near-zero overhead (no shopping, prep, etc)
  3. Great Taste & Variety — healthy & delicious eating without monotony
  4. Affordability — cheaper than typical restaurant meals, especially fast food
  5. Eco-friendly — minimal or positive environmental impact at scale

After years of obsessively working on this problem, scouring the latest nutrition research, and using a “first principles” approach uncommon in the traditional food industry, LeafSide was born.

What We Do

LeafSide now makes healthy eating easy and accessible with shelf-stable 100% whole food, plant-based meals, which are ready to eat in minutes with no real work or effort.

We currently have 4 meal types: smoothies, soups, sweet-bowls, and savory-bowls — all designed by professional chefs to taste great, while delivering the leading nutrition science of the global bestselling book  How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease by Dr. Michael Greger.
