Bringing families back to real food.
We deliver on a weekly basis to Brooklyn & Manhattan. Manhattan & Williamsburg/LIC/Greenpoint are on Sunday evenings, and Brooklyn is on Monday evenings. We do occasional weekday morning deliveries to customers who work in Manhattan but live outside our delivery zone; an additional $5 delivery fee will apply.
We are very choosy about our ingredients and preparation methods, using only organic or local/responsibly-produced ingredients. Occasionally we use an item that is not organic and we will always disclose this in our ingredients list (example: red wine, not organic). All animal products used are organic, local, and pasture-raised. Our preparation methods take four years of exploration in this area into account so that we can bring our customers the most delicious, nutritious, and digestible end product. We saltwater-soak and roast our nuts and seeds, we ferment our grains for 5-14 days, and we cook our bone broths the old-fashioned and time-tested way, from 4-24 hours depending on the type of broth. No gluten or wheat is ever used in our dishes, though our production kitchen is not gluten free.
Keep in mind that nutrition consultations and cooking instruction are available as well, so that you can delve further into a traditional foods lifestyle and enjoy even greater benefits! If you have a question about which foods are best suited to your diet or health needs, feel free to send an email to Hannah@EarthBodyBalance.com. For customer comments about our foods, please see Reviews.

A note about special diets & allergies: the most common problematic ingredients (dairy, eggs, nuts, and pork) are listed at the end of each product description in caps. Some dishes can be altered to suit your preference, and this is typically noted as well. We use all organic ingredients (or local/sustainable) unless otherwise noted.
Orders are due by Thursday, March 28 at noon, though we always do our best to fill late orders. Please continue reading below the menu for all instructions, delivery details, updated delivery fees, and policies. Returning customers: please review our jar policies and the section on dairy. New customers: be sure to read the section specifically for you. Thanks for your business!

Please read over ALL text in this email for many important details. Be sure to include your home address, bell #, cell phone #, schedule details/restrictions during BOTH your potential delivery time slots, and let us know whether we can send you delivery updates by text message, which is our preference.
We like to package everything in glass as much as possible. All items packaged in glass list "+ jar dep" at the end of their description. Pricing is as follows: 5.00/64-oz, quart 2.50, pint 2.00, half-pint 1.50. You may choose to keep the jars to use at home, or return them for a refund when you place your next order. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU WASH YOUR JARS, LIDS, AND RINGS THOROUGHLY IN HOT SOAPY WATER OR IN A DISHWASHER. THEY MUST ALSO BE THOROUGHLY DRIED BEFORE THEY ARE RETURNED TO US. We need them to be sparkling clean and ready to be quickly washed and dried. We do not have a dishwasher and cannot spend hours hand-scrubbing and drying everyone's jars and lids.
Please do not cap your jars before they are dry as the lids and/or rings will become rusty! Please do not return any jars or lids that you did not get from us unless you are donating them (label with masking tape please). We require our jars to be returned with our lids -- not with lids you obtained elsewhere that bear labels or unremovable stickers as we cannot use lids like these.
As our customer base grows it is becoming more challenging to handle everyone's jars. In order to ensure a proper refund, you MUST place your jars in a CLOSED bag clearly marked with your full name.
We do wash and reuse our plastic broth containers so please consider returning them to us (already washed please!) as an environmentally-conscious gesture. New York City does not recycle rigid plastic containers like these; they are put into landfills. Please consider returning them to us!
It is expected that you will provide a bag for your items in the event that you pick up your order, or if we meet you at your front door or have to leave your delivery with a doorman. If we need to leave a bag there is a 6.00 charge added to your account; please return our bags to receive a refund. Thank you!
Current customers only: you may request my homemade yogurt or kefir and if I have some available I will do my best to accommodate.
