Angelfoods, the brainchild of Marissa and Rachna, introduces the concept of healthy cooking into the consciousness and kitchens of its customers. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, Marissa and Rachna conjure up delicious lunches from locally-available organically-grown fresh fruits and vegetables, and whole grains, cereals, nuts, and seeds. The dishes are free from animal ingredients and are cooked in cold-pressed oil.

Making healthy changes in your kitchen: As explained to us by Marissa, Angelfoods inspires people to shift to healthier lifestyles by demonstrating that healthy food can be delicious. Over a period of time, people get motivated to make changes in their own kitchens.
Luncheon dishes from Angelfoods: The lunch served by Angelfoods is essentially Mediterranean with tastes from Greece, Spain, France, Morocco, and North Africa. In Mediterranean cuisine a lot of fresh herbs, seasonal vegetables, and olive oil is used – all in the right quantities for a harmonizing effect. Some Asian dishes are also offered in the menu.

Marissa and Rachna prepare the food themselves. In Marissa’s words,
"We don’t use any ingredient that the human body can’t metabolize. We use only those ingredients that the body can break down easily. So, we use ingredients such as nuts, vegetables, whole grains, fruits, and cold pressed oils. These five groups are essential elements in all the foods we prepare.”What else Angelfoods offers: Apart from the lunches, Angelfoods also offers vegan cakes (chocolate cakes and carrot cakes), dips, desserts, ice cream, muffins, muesli, and smoothies. All cakes and desserts are made with organic raw sugar only.
How Angelfoods operates: Anglefoods operates from Marisa's kitchen preparing and serving lunch three days a week as mentioned at the beginning of this story. One needs to sign up for the entire week in advance. You can also opt for a one-day trial. Every week has a unique menu. The lunch can be picked up from the Anglefoods kitchen or you can request for a home delivery.

“Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food. And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given... every green plant for food.” ~Genesis 1:29, from The Bible~
