Sedona-Red Rocks and ChocolaTree

Next time you are in Sedona stop in and relax a bit at ChocolaTree. Intention: ChocolaTree is a Sanctuary where each Being can nurture their Authenticity. Vision: We see a World of natural beauty where every child is born into a domain with clean air, pure water and their very own garden growing fresh foods in a splendid paradise! We all play a part in nurturing this Vision together as we make conscious choices that honor ourselves, the planet and each other. Here are a few ways ChocolaTree upholds this vision: We source 100% Organic or Wildcrafted produce. All of our seeds, nuts, veggies, spices, sea veggies everything! 95% of our menu is seasonal, based on what is available locally. If we cant get it within 3 states bordering Arizona, we don’t serve it or we source directly from the most integral supplier. We take into account the “travel miles” organic food undergoes to arrive at its destination. For instance an organic apple flown from Chili might taste and look the same as an organic apple grown in our neighboring Verde Valley however considering the impact of the airplane fuel, packaging etc., sourcing the Chilean apple does not fit into our vision. Therefore we opt to support local growers as much as possible. The water we use in preparing our foods is an artesian spring fed source free of chlorine or fluoride, just pure water. We begin the germination process of our seeds and nuts in this artesian water to assure optimal digestion of the foods we prepare. We add polar minerals for added minerals to this germinating water mixture as well as use 3.5 Ph water for added cleanliness. Read more....... Look I visited the place twice in 2 days had some good grub and got my hands on some green protein.....and a few other items. You can't go wrong in a place like this. Once you visit you'll know what I mean.....peace ChocolaTree Promo Video!
