Welcome to our world…
Hello! We are Darsh and Snelly. We are passionate about living a happy, healthy, natural, minimalist and spiritual life.
At Asili, we lovingly create natural, wholesome, unadulterated foods that will nurture your body just as nature intended. We specialize in raw, plant based, gluten free, refined sugar free, healthy, delicious (guilt-free) food. You can find most of our products at the Duckpond market or contact us for orders via the website.
Asili is a Swahili word for 'ancestor' or 'origin'. Inspired by this, our range of products contain natural ingredients found in nature and prepared using a slow ancient process of activation and dehydration. We long soak our nuts and seeds and then slowly dry them to preserve their nutrition.
Eat right, move light, live bright and reach new heights!
Eat Right - we were born to eat real food so load up on vegetables, fruits, beans, lentils, nuts, and seeds just as nature intended us to. Giving up processed and refined foods will unleash your palate to experience a world of flavours! Nothing, no medicine, no supplement, no botox jab or beauty serum will make you feel, think or look as good as real food can!
Move Light – Move well and often, with intensity, skill and playfulness. Our bodies are designed to explore and endure lots of natural movement patterns such as running, fighting, swimming, lifting and playing. We try and give everything a go and have fun doing it, and strive to be generally good at everything rather than specially good at one thing!
Live Bright - Be kind to others, kind to yourself and kind to the planet we live on! We play, immerse ourselves in nature, hike, climb, dive…all in pursuit of pure exuberance. Do more of the things that make you happy and find the courage to ditch the things that don't. Live mindfully, compassionately and spontaneously.
Reach new heights – There is no time to sit still, strive to be a better you. You can't get to the top unless you get off your bottom. So do something that challenges you or excites you, step outside your comfort zone, give something back perhaps.
So here is to embracing a healthy body, a conscious mind and an inspired spirit!
Get in touch. We’d love to hear from you!
