Maria Marlowe's Real Food Manifesto

  • 1

    Real Food Is for Everyone

    Everyone on this planet is entitled to real food.

  • 2

    There is No Dogma

    We don’t believe in labels like Paleo, vegan, vegetarian…we just believe in eating real food as often as humanely possible. Labels separate us and often lead to judgment.

    Progress Not Perfection

    No one is perfect. We won’t judge you if you fall off track, but we also won’t let you throw in the towel. We’re all in this together, and want everyone to succeed.

    Real Food is not boring, bland, or deprivational, it’s exciting, delicious, and satisfying.

    Community is Everything

    One can only achieve so much on their own, but with the motivation, support, and accountability of a community, the results are limitless.
