THE IMPORTANCE OF CLEAN COOKING AND EATING
In the Quokka kitchen, we have no highly-processed oils or refined sugars on our shelves. The fats in all Quokka meals come exclusively from natural fats such as olive oil, sesame oil, avocado oil, coconut milk, grass-fed butter, nuts, and seeds.
We also cook with gentle heat, which keeps the antioxidants in the oils from breaking down. These healthy fats will fuel your cells, rather than waging war on them.
As a result, you'll likely feel a difference in your energy and mood after eating Quokka meals versus other meals packed with industrial vegetable and seed oils.
MEDITERRANEAN DIET MEETS INTERNATIONAL CUISINE
At Quokka, we're reversing a decades-long trend toward processed, unhealthy meals by making it more desirable to eat meals filled with fresh, local, whole foods throughout the week.
Clinical and nutritional studies continue to show links between the refined sugars and trans fats present in highly processed foods and a variety of health issues, including diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and inflammation.
We believe that breaking this habit requires building meals that are more convenient, personalized, nutritious, and appetizing than the unhealthy options around us every day.
The Mediterranean diet has been shown in numerous studies to promote health, weight loss, and help prevent heart disease, strokes, and type 2 diabetes.
Core tenets of the Mediterranean diet include special emphasis on vegetables, fruits, whole grains, lean meats, and olive oil. Added sugars, processed meats, refined grains, and refined oils should be strictly avoided.
Recipes from the Quokka menu are built in the Mediterranean style, with a focus on local, micronutrient-rich produce, high-quality lean proteins, healthy fats, and olive oil.
However, Quokka recipes themselves are not limited to Italian and Greek dishes, but are regularly inspired by a diverse range of cultures and culinary traditions from around the world. This approach keeps the Quokka menu dynamic and engaging to ensure adequate variety for Quokka members.
BUT WHAT'S A QUOKKA?
We're glad you asked! Well to start, Quokkas are the world's happiest animal. (Seriously.)
These joyful little marsupials can be found on Rottnest Island in Western Australia. They're friendly, fun, and even enjoy taking selfies with visitors.
They also have strict diets, and thrive on the natural grasses, leaves, bark, and plants on their island. If you ever go to visit the Quokkas, you'll likely be warned to avoid feeding them human foods.
We think their emphasis on a clean, local, non-processed diet may have something to do with them being happy all the time, which is why they've inspired our company name. We hope that every one of our members is as happy as a Quokka whenever they receive a fresh batch of Quokka meals.
