Inspired by his travels and studies all over the world, Moy sees Nood food as a way to:
1. offer detox programmes and foods that are both delicious and nourishing to help busy people counterbalance their periodic overindulgences
2. contribute to sustainability by maintaining the lowest environmental impact through organic and local products.
He’s also certified on Holistic and Live Food Nutrition and Juice Fasting with Dr. Gabriel Cousens at The of Life Foundation. His menu showcases raw snacks, main dishes, and desserts that are chock full of superfoods. He is delighted to create foods for those who practice conscious eating and seek a more accessible way of maintaining health and balance.
