Are you tired of fast food but because life can be so time consuming it seems to be the only option? So you try and find the most healthy one and even then you are not 100% sure what you just put in your body? Have you done your research on what is in food and you are just fed up with being lied to, deceived and manipulated into thinking that the food you eat is S.A.F.E?
Are you confused, wondering how we as a people could have allowed this to go on for so long? Stop beating yourself up!
You have not done a terrible job. You are not a terrible person. We are all in the same boat and we all have to get out of this boat together. The one thing we must remember is that we as a people hold the power to make a change.
These billion dollar corporate "toxic" restaurant chains didn't start with billions. They made their money on the backs of our hard earned dollars. Lets take those dollars back! Start investing your money in food that is not going to make you sick, disease ridden, obese, arthritic, inflamed, depressed, stressed, over-excited, diabetic...and the list goes on.
Peckish is an Organic Fast Casual S.A.F.E. Restaurant, with high quality affordable ingredients served in a fun and welcoming atmosphere. Our menu is compact yet diverse and flavorful featuring tastes from America, Asia, India, Italy and Spain.
We were founded on the premise of making wholesome delicious organic food, free from chemicals and preservatives. We have taken it a step further than just organic ingredients and have created what we are calling a S.A.F.E. restaurant. Being a S.A.F.E. restaurant means that you must only use organic ingredients (with the only exceptions being ingredients that are not labeled organic like: wild seafood, salt etc.), and you must ban certain items from your menu (like: citric acid, ascorbic acid etc. most other banned items are listed below).
Our mission is to end the deception and the manipulation taking place regarding food in this country and all over the world. You have the right to know what is in your food and you should't need a PhD just to be able to figure it out.
