"All the cars in the world do not equal the damage done by the agriculture industry"
These are both terrifying and comforting words about a very true reality. How can something be both at the same time? Let me explain. It's terrifying because in no way are we about to abandon agriculture in the near future. It is what feeds human beings after all. With agriculture being an absolute necesity and having knowledge about it's effects at the same time is like watching a loved one slowly die on propose. It can be agony for those that truly want to save the planet and ultimately ourselves.
Now for the fluffy part.
The Earth did not come in a nicely packaged boxed with agriculture included. It is a "man-made" process and therefor it can be a "man-shaped" process. The challenge in this change falls in the sheer volume of work that lies ahead of us. We need scientists to give the facts. We need news stations and papers to give these facts the massive attention that they deserve. And, possibly the most difficult challenge lies in companies willingness to lose money in order to create a new system that might have some growing pains until a new system gets ironed out.
On a very small scale--GustOrganics can understand why this might be so challenging for those corporations. There is so much economical risk from their point of view (granted if the Earth dies due to lack of change then they have more to worry about than their company's bank account). In GustOrganics' situation we are transitioning from a heavy meat restaurant to vegan and we see the economical cost of trying to create a better system. The old system followers do no approve and therefore do not support. If one were to observe this transition phase they might call it a failure.
But that person would have to lack imagination because the beginning of change always starts slow. On the upside--a totally new passionate and dedicated demographic do support our decisions--but it takes time and word of mouth before the new supporters fill the void created by the old clientele. With tiny steps here and tiny steps there, you finish the race without anyone noticing how. People will ultimately focus on the finish line and this finish line must be paved with compassion for the planet, the animals, and most of all self preservation.
Undoubtedly, Self-Preservation is by far the most important to humans, Not one single logical person can fault a company for trying to save themselves, right? So why aren't more food and agriculture companies using this fault proof excuse to justify their change for the better? This logical excuse to change the agricultural system is going to be the key to their success. If enough people hear the "why" enough people will support the change of system. We simply need to start the conversation with more passion and more emphasis on the urgency of self-preservation. The clock is ticketing away with every second spent stagnant in the old system of agriculture. So let's change. After all, like I said--it's man-made and it can be man-shaped.
I've heard it called "true gourmet vegan food", "sheer awesomeness", "Don Draper Style food" and much more. People are raving about the simply awesome Meatless Monday Menu (AKA The Sexy Vegan Menu)--so much so--that we've decided to make it available 7 days a week! The below is coming soon!
As many scientists start to to bring talk of meat production effects on the environment more and more mainstream , GustOrganics feels like it is our duty to keep up with the scientific times and mold to the new modern ideal of what is most sustainable! We are now more local plant-based than ever! We honor every Meatless Monday, our new daily menu is 85% plant-based, and even our catering now offers a 100% Gourmet Sexy Vegan Menu!
Organic Restaurant, GustOrganics, is Playing With Fire
“60% of our profit
comes from meat…and on July 14th we are going meatless.”
If 60% of a restaurant’s profit
comes from meat dishes—then why would that business isolate It is officially
GustOrganics’ duty to reduce their carbon footprint as much as possible in
order to honestly maintain that title.
an entire day
during the week where they refuse to serve meat? This answer is simple: Not all
restaurants have the title “The Greenest Restaurant in NYC.” GustOrganics, on
the other hand, does.
Starting Monday July 14th,
GustOrganics is launching a new Meatless Monday initiative where every dish on
the featured menu is deliciously plant-based. This is a risk. As mentioned, most
of their clients are carnivores; however, GustOrganics is not just serving food,
they are serving lifestyle.Nothing
great comes without risk and GustOrganics is about to take a step into
uncharted territory; a territory completely over-grown with kale and spinach,
but they are positive that this is a step towards something great.

Everyone agrees that the only way to truly detox your body is to remove the chemicals from your life that are causing you to need a detox in the first place. How can you do that? Eat only organic. Do not be fooled by the word "natural". It is merely a brilliant marketing scheme. Check out this great VIDEOdescribing the difference between "Natural and "Organic".
Conventional foods can contain artificial flavors, artificial colors, artificial preservatives, artificial fertilizer, artificial pesticides, irradiation, and may be genetically modified. The key word here is "artificial". Truly, you are eating an edible food-like substance when you do not eat organic. Organic food may simply be known as "real food".
Can you imagine if your waiter approached you and said, " May I offer the Macaroni and Cheese? Now, the macaroni is not actually made from grain or flour--it's actually made from corn--but it's not actually corn because it has the genes of a salmon and soy. And the cheese is a combination of bleach, reduced iron, soy lectin, yellow food die, and tertiary butylhydroquinon (for freshness of course)."
You would probably leave that restaurant immediately and never return. Firstly, at GustOrganics we have a conscious and we are aiming to change the world one meal at a time, but we are also the only certified organic restaurant in the world and we cannot serve an item that is not certified organic by the very strict guidelines of the USDA. Therefore, if you are looking for a place to get your health back on track, start with us :)
