Holistic, Healthy & Abundant: Origins of Brunswick Heads Health Foods and Cafe
David Shaw created what is now Brunswick Heads Health Food over 15 years ago.
With over 23 years of experience as a practicing Naturopath and Herbalist, he started with an ethos that is simple to follow:
Health has to be approached holistically.
David uses his shop as his pantry for life and promotes all his family, friends and customers to do the same for the maximum benefit for a long healthy life for all. As such, the store is stocked with a huge amount and variety of healthy food. The store has grown in size over the past 15 years and now takes up the whole corner block of Fingal and Park Streets.
Kristina has been catering for the north coast community for many years under her ‘Kristina’s Tasty Kitchen’ banner, which specialises in vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and raw food. Kristina is well known as a lady who cooks from her heart and has a strong following in the Brunswick /Byron region.
The pairing of David and Kristina seemed inevitable.
The food that Kristina supplies to Brunswick Health Foods is quite often purchased in its ingredient form from Brunswick Health Foods, be that fresh organic fruit and veg or almond meal, organic spelt flour, chemical free almonds or dried rose petals. Kristina started as a customer and now supplies around 80 percent of the freshly prepared food at Brunswick Health Foods.
