Our Story

食養生活是透過食物滋養身心、情感、思想,達至自我療癒。

縱使一直以來很多產品都針對食物的營養、瘦身健康等益處,卻沒有好好了解過飲食方式如何影響我們的心理及情緒。

Soulistic 堅信全蔬食生活是最經濟最可持續的保健方法。身心靈本為一體。食物會對我們表達情緒、學習、思考、記憶、接收外來訊息有長遠影響。情緒亦會影響我們的荷爾蒙水平、消化系統、免疫系統。如果進食只為麻目地攝取營養而不了解它們如何影響我們的身體功能,再多的營養和金錢都是白費。新一代的飲食不應只著重卡路里,更需要注重食物的質量,來源和製造方法。

在生活中,正能推動改變的事物或許不多。我們相信唯有自家研製更美味的產品舉辦體驗活動教育推廣是可以更有效改變舊有的蔬食概念,自2018年開始於香港、馬來西亞等地與社企、純素團體及烹飪學校合辦純素工作坊。另外,Soulistic 微素工房亦提供食養治療諮詢 (Nutrition Consultation) 和定期舉辦私廚晚宴 (Pop Up Dinner),透過設計餐單和活動體驗,令客人可以了解素食對的身心的裨益,對自己的飲食習慣作出反思,令有意食得健康之人更容易達到真正健康。

Soulistic 微素工房於2019年開始自家種植部份食材,亦聯同幾個本地農夫為Soulistic 食品及 Soulistic 舉辦的活動到會提供食材。同年底正式設立工作室和網店,並於持牌食品工場製作產品。

Creating food that feeds the soul.

At Soulistic, we focus on the wellness of the body, mind and soul as a whole. This includes a person’s physical, mental, and emotional health, while taking social factors into consideration.

We believe true health and happiness comes when you start raising awareness to your body and by feeding yourself with the right food.

This is why we came up with the name "Soulistic". It is a portmanteau of ‘holistic’ and ‘soul’, which forms the foundation of everything that we do - creating plant-based food that feeds the soul. The word ‘soul’ also has a similar tone to the Chinese word for veganism.

Food is healthcare.

When diet is wrong, medicine is of little use. When our diet is corrected, medicine is of no need. This is why:

EDUCATION plays a huge role in our mission. Since 2018, we have been collaborating with schools and companies around Asia, educating and creating experiences for our community to incorporate a healing food diet into their lifestyle.

EXPERIENCE is all it takes to rethink our perception to plant food. We reach out to our audience through - personal nutrition consultation, private dining experiences and product development. We have noticed the lack of education in plant-based diet within Asia and we are committed to advocate this healthy and low-carbon lifestyle to our audience. Whether it is creating meal plans, grocery shopping hang-out or private dining, we are happy to share our love of plants with you.

In September 2019, Soulistic set up our office and food production space in Hong Kong. To further support urban farming and local produce, we also started growing our own vegetables in our garden which are then used in the food we create at Soulistic's private events and products.

Meet Our Founder

 

Soulistic 微素工房的創立源於7年的經歷。

創辦人 Tiffany 於2010年患上重度抑鬱症和焦慮症,經歷過種種藥物帶來的副作用,包括嚴重皮膚出疹、腸胃不適等,促使 Tiffany 開始研究食養生活和自然療法。研究過程中開始接觸純素飲食,更加認識飲食與心靈健康的關係。

今日的 Tiffany 已經不需要再服用抗抑鬱藥。這個經驗亦為Tiffany帶來對食物、生活和事業都有正面的改變。2017年,她決定放下穩定的活動統籌的工作到美國洛杉磯修讀純素烹飪和純素營養證書課程(Food Future Institue, 前身為 Matthew Kenney Culinary)。同年她亦完成由由T.柯林.坎貝爾基金會(T. Colin Campbell Foundation)與附屬於康乃爾大學(Cornell University)合辦的蔬食營養證書課程。Tiffany 現在是一位蔬食者、純素廚師和食養生活顧問。

Soulistic 微素工房是一個典型都市人健康的故事,Tiffany希望透過分享蔬食,推廣純素食養生活,令更多人關注全面健康的重要。

訪問 Interview  | UnearthingCommunity Feature 

  

Tiffany is the Founder and creator behind Soulistic. She is a certified plant-based chef and plant-based nutritionist.

She first discovered her passion in food and culinary therapy back in 2013. After being diagnosed with severe depression, anxiety and chronic allergies three years prior, she experienced the side effects of heavy medications and how processed food can affect one's health. Reliance on medication was not the sustainable way to a healthy life. As a result, she started learning about a holistic diet and natural healing. 

In 2017, she switched to a plant-based diet and the rest is, as they say, history. Not only was she able to rid her body of chronic allergies but 2020 marks her 4th year being clean from depression. This is why she is a strong believer that food can be medicine.

Receiving her culinary training and nutrition certification in the US, she continues to collaborate with people around the world who share similar beliefs and passion in food. Her experience and training encouraged her to create Soulistic where she hopes this story will continue to relate with many more.
