If you are looking for a place to eat or grocery shop and you are after a specific health food ingredient or you are gluten sensitive or maybe dairy free, or just like to nourish your body with only the best. Well do I have the answer for you!! Hills Organics in Dural. A little gem filled with beautiful products from house made kombucha to quinoa penne. If you name any health food item or even beauty item, they will have it in store for you. The shelves are filled to the brim with the most highest of quality products for optimal health.
As great as their products are and beautiful their space is, once I sat down with owner Andrea over a coffee I realised how much more Hills Organics is than a café/health food store. So much more.
Andrea and her husband opened this little slice of paradise to help further educate ‘The Hills’ on health, what it really means and how it can feel. “To feel 100% is what everyone deserves and I want to educate people who come in here how to do that. Whether it’s recommending products or helping them out with problems they are experiencing and pointing them in the right direction. I want people to know that healthy eating is affordable and doesn’t have to be hard!” If you look around this beautiful space Andrea and her husband have created there is a lot of reading material, products and recipes on offer to make the experience of healthy eating an enjoyable one. The similarities in our both RFT’s mission and Hills Organics is an important one. Education. Without education and learning we are stationary, we go nowhere. So to improve and grow as an individual education is key. Whether it comes to results in the gym or the best way to eat to be a healthy human, reading and learning about the topic at hand will only benefit you and your process. When I asked Andrea what her number one health tip was. Her answer was brilliant. Knowledge and how do we get knowledge through education and reading useful materials. Read, read, read. Talk to professionals in the industry and they can inform you of the best options and what will be the most efficient path for you to take on your journey.
“Food really is medicine and can be used in that way, to help heal the body especially the gut!” Andrea is talking from personal experience as her daughter suffers from severe eczema. Out of pure frustrations Andrea and her husband turned to food for help. And food is where they found the answer. They dramatically changed the way their daughter ate in order to control her skin condition as well as visiting ‘Salts of the Earth’ on a weekly basis. “The severity of her eczema has lessened a lot and we can put that down to her diet, she doesn’t go without at all but what she does eat has helped immensely.” Food really is the root to a lot of today’s issue’s people encounter whether it be with their gut, skin or bowel. Food can be the answer and choosing organic where you can will make the world of difference. Less chemicals and more nutrients for the body to absorb. Nourishing the body is Andrea’s life modo. nourishing the insides to get the most out of our food and everyday living.
Andrea’s passion for good, quality, organic food started when she was little with her Mother always growing her own vegetables and cooking everything from scratch. stay clear of chemicals and plating up wholesome meals. In Hill’s Organics you will find beautiful cook books on the wall to help you with idea’s and recipes that the whole family will enjoy. Making meal time a family affair again and bringing it back to the table will make it all worth while and making the health eating process all the much easier when everyone is on the same page.
Some very exciting news and inside goss from Andrea, Hill’s Organics will be expanding soon to an upstairs component where people and business can hire the space for functions and seminars, workshops and even bringing cooking workshops for the public to join in.
