I’m excited to be working on a new food photography project for a local food business called 180Eats located in Mill Valley, California. 180Eats was created out of a desire to help busy professionals and parents provide healthy meals that are both affordable and delicious and made from ingredients that are locally sourced and humanely raised.
Customers can order healthy meals online and have them delivered straight to their door. The name 180Eats comes from the founders’ desire to help others make a 180-degree turn away from processed foods to seasonal whole foods.
Their menus change daily, offering both a meat and vegetarian option, with a home delivery service currently in place and future plans of pop-up shops opening in the future.
I have recently been seeing more of these establishments popping up in the San Francisco Bay Area lately as the shift towards healthy, whole foods is increasing while time to cook often seems to be decreasing. Just the other day, my husband and I were talking about how nice it would be to have healthier fast-food options.
I especially love how the business is candid about their ingredients on their website, so you know exactly what is going into each meal.
The dishes I tried were really delicious and very flavourful and fresh. The pork chop and parsnip puree was melt-in-your mouth, and the meatloaf with a spicy bourbon barbecue glaze was definitely not the meatloaf you grew up with!
I’m grateful to be able to partner with and help local businesses get established. So much of a potential customer’s first impression of a business is through the internet nowadays, and as I share with many of my clients, having a strong, visual presence is crucial for a business’ success.
Their menu is constantly changing depending on the season, so check back at 180Eats.com often to find out what’s new. I can’t wait to see what other inventive dishes their Chef, a former Google executive sous chef, comes up with!
