A handmade, high -protein and -fibre rich range of pasta free from gluten, grain, nuts, sugar, soya and GMO’s that keeps you fuller for longer.
Happy Earth People was founded in 2015 by two very determined eco-health nuts Taleszia Pillay and Candice Perkins.
They believe pulses are the nutritious superfood of the future and may even be the answer to climate change-related concerns about food security. Legumes (the dried pea, bean and lentil family) are a good source of protein and fibre, they are packed with iron and antioxidants. Growing and supporting the pulse industry is not only good for you but good for the planet too. Legumes are well known as ‘nitrogen fixers’ as they leave the soil healthier after harvest.
Their vision is to reconnect people with the way we eat, feel and see ourselves on planet earth. To consume harmoniously in a way that is kind, nutritionally wholesome and brings us together.
Simply put, they’re an earth happy brand, from intention to raw materials. That’s how they roll!
They make organically grown legume pastas and legume products. All their products are hand made in Cape Town and they source their ingredients locally as far as possible.
Their products are perfect for those with gluten and other food intolerances, those following a vegetarian and vegan diet, parents, the health-conscious and those who want to know that what they’re eating doesn’t affect the environment negatively.
Eating a variety of legumes 3-4 times a week, can help prevent chronic disease, including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer and weight gain as well as improve gut health.
Their range comprising two products is free from gluten, grain, nuts, sugar, soya and GMO’s. All their pasta is handmade and is a far better alternative to their high carb counterparts. The high protein and fibre makes their fusilli unique in that it keeps you fuller for longer.
The cherry on top, legumes are TOTALLY gluten-free.
It’s also one of the easiest meals to cook in just 6-8 minutes.
