My Philosophy

Handmade Organic by Telah is an organic food delivery and personal chef service practicing whole food plant-based philosophy in New York City. Health-supportive diets incorporate 'food as medicine' and act as a preventative measure to chronic illness. Delicious and healthy can be in the same pot!

"Whole foods are ones that are in their pure and natural state, meaning they have not been processed, added to, refined, sprayed with chemicals, and irradiated. A whole foods diet emphasizes fresh, organic, seasonal and locally produced fare consisting of whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds, unrefined oils, minimal sweeteners and organic grass-fed animal proteins."

Cynthia Liar, Feeding the Whole Family

So why eat foods that are natural and organic? The answer is to keep the life force of the plant intact, whole.

Imagine vital nutrients of the plant remaining–so when we ingest them we can receive the plant’s full healthful benefits. Opposed to plants that have been treated with harmful chemicals that harm the human systems and environment. We have to ask ourselves why so many humans are sick from the foods they eat. Buying organic puts less strain on the environment and all the creatures that inhabit it. Regenerative farming and permaculture actually captures carbon down into the earth. Water sources, wildlife, farmers, and growers are more protected from harmful pollutants when organic farming practices are implemented. Organic food tastes better too!

Handmade Organic’s menus are made in tune with local and seasonal ingredients. The fare is delicious and healthy with the intent to support optimal nutrition for the client.

When animal protein is used it’s purpose serves as a ratio of the diet as well as incorporating plant foods. Handmade Organic’s purpose is defined by these principles as well as the practice of intentional cooking–the infusion of healing energy in your food. The focus is on sustainable, local, medicinal food and the understanding that we as humans can meet a balanced diet through whole food cuisine using traditional cooking methods and sourcing quality ingredients.
