You want clean quality food that is good for you, tastes good, and makes you feel good too - the 3 goods we strive for. Let's be inclusive and meet diet diversity and foodie passion with love, health, creativity, and flavor and work together to evolve our food supply to prioritize the health and well being of consumers.
THE WHY'S OF KYE'S
Kye's is at the heart of a conscious food movement that makes eating happy and healthy easy. Here's how we do it.
PRACTICE 1: SAY HELLO, KYERITO
Portable, craveable, sustainably farmed, everyday healthy food that is consciously working to evolve our food supply and address the food sensitivity issues that we and our children are facing today. We look forward to the day when the health and well being of consumers is the most important consideration in all food production.
PRACTICE 2: KYECHI
Our food is thoughtfully crafted, from the Chinese yam (number one digestive tonic in traditional Chinese medicine that also acts a prebiotic and helps heal the gut) we add to our soups, to macro-pressing our raw vegetables (a macrobiotic cooking technique that makes raw vegetables more digestible while maintaining all of the live enzymes, antioxidants, and phytonutrients), to mixing Swiss chard into our grass fed beef burgers and spinach into our free range eggs and chocolate chip cookies for added nutrition.
We embrace the yin and yang of why we eat, to both nourish our bodies AND experience pure enjoyment. Through KyeChi, we aspire to work with the dualistic nature of life and existence to create and innovate.
PRACTICE 3: BUILD KYE'S COMMUNITY
With transparency and self awareness, let’s use food as our medium to enliven consciousness and connection, and create a supportive happy workplace and community that’s socially responsible, fun, and adds value!
IN HAWAIIAN AND JAPANESE, KYE MEANS OCEAN, WHICH NOURISHES AND SUPPORTS LIFE AND OUR PLANET.
IN CHINESE, KYE MEANS TO OPEN, TO EXPAND, OR TO CHAMPION.
IN MAORI, KYE MEANS FOOD, SOME ASSOCIATE NEW ZEALAND WITH THE PUREST MOST NUTRIENT DENSE FOOD ON THE PLANET.
TO ME, IT MEANS THE LOVE I HAVE FOR MY SON, KYE. HE INSPIRES ME TO CREATE A WORLD THAT WE'D LIKE OUR CHILDREN TO GROW UP IN.
MEET THE FOUNDER
Nurturing the mind, body, and spirit is second nature for this dedicated foodie. Having studied the mind-body connection, health, healing, and meditation for more than 30 years, Jeanne has earned degrees in Molecular Biology, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Spiritual Psychology, and has a background in Ayurveda. She has always loved cooking and been passionate about nutrition, and her son Kye's picky palate, food sensitivities, and desire for all things “yummy" presented her with an opportunity to bring all of her knowledge to experimenting, being creative, and having fun with food and her son. What emerged is a set of food philosophies endearingly dubbed KyeChi, a new and exciting food called the KyeRito, the book Pursuit of the Magic Piece, and this restaurant. Jeanne hopes to empower the way we eat with a new dining experience that adds value to our lives and addresses the changes we need to see in the food industry for the well being of our children and our planet.
