When I started Left Coast Raw I wanted to make shake blends that are similar in nutrition and taste to what you make at home, with fresh fruits and vegetables.
The only way to do that is to use freeze dried ingredients. So that’s what we use.
Nutrients from the native raw, whole-food source are far more beneficial than vitamins and minerals in an isolated form. Left Coast Raw only uses whole food fruit and vegetable ingredients. There are no isolated vitamins or minerals in your shake.
Protein is probably one of the most written about subjects in the nutrition universe. What source - plant based or animal - and in what amounts?
Left Coast Raw only uses organic, plant-based proteins, the combination of which provides you with about a third of your daily requirement of all 9 essential amino acids.
What is a Super Food and what makes it super? Is it a rare berry from a tree that only grows along the equator in South America? Maybe, as long as it is in its whole-food form. All fruits and vegetables are Super Foods, spinach, apples, broccoli and so on. When eaten as a whole-food, you’re getting it intact, with all of the vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. When eating a combination of these foods you benefit from a synergy of health-promoting effects as nature intended. I like to tell people our shake blends are complex, not complicated.
Left Coast Raw is located in Bend Oregon where we hand-craft each of our blends in 200 serving batches to maintain the highest quality possible. My primary responsibility, and passion, is sourcing the best ingredients and formulating our raw, whole-food shake blends. If I’m not at “World Headquarters”, or serving samples at a store or one of the many events we sponsor, you’ll find me, or not, exploring the Left Coast wonderland where I grew up. Thank you.
