"Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” Albert Einstein
Everyone`s food choices will be their medicine or aggravation. Nutrition is one of the most powerful tools to prevent or help reverse the effects of chronic diseases. Our offerings are based on research studies showing that dietary changes can slow inflammation, the root cause of many illnesses. Healing Food products are plant-based and inspired by your individual needs. We use ingredients primarily low on lectine, a family of proteins found in almost all foods, which pass through the gut lining into the blood and lymphatic system. As a result, they can create inflammation and immune stress throughout the body. Healing Food guidelines are drawn from 1000 years of wisdom in the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, as well as from scientific research. Our medicinal functional food is designed to support your health prevention or recovery process, support society and community responsibility, and be environmentally friendly with our resources and products.
Erkan Chaka, Founder of GreenGo, and Kai Mueller, three-time "Wellness Cuisine of the Year" winner and CEO of Healing Food & Healing Food Consulting, working together to bring you the culinary possibilities of truly unique functional foods. Featured dishes are energizing, boost brain activity and overall health for better wellbeing.
Meet both of them during the event week from 12 - 16 September 2022 at GreenGo, Halle de Rive, right in the heart of Geneva, Switzerland.
Who We Are
GreenGo was born from a simple idea: we are at the heart of a new era and a new culture! Today, vegetarian gastronomy continues to develop and convince: "The world is ready."
Recently, plant-based gastronomy has experienced constant growth and has convinced Erkan Chaka, the founder of GreenGo, that the world is ready for a culinary revolution. For his love of cooking, he founded GreenGo and took on new challenges.
He wants to break the codes and constantly revisit traditional dishes according to the seasons. Vegetable gardens and orchards are an infinite source of inspiration for him. In 2016, the first 100% vegetarian takeaway food stall was born in the heart of the Halle de Rive.
"Cooking has been my passion for many years, so my career choice was a no-brainer. My years of experience have only strengthened my determination to pursue the exciting career of a chef! The art of cooking is to please. I retain this daily to satisfy the most demanding taste buds. As a result, I now have my own culinary identity and present innovative vegetarian and vegan dishes." - Erkan, founder of GreenGo

"Having worked with doctors, therapists, and healers to mentor high-end clients as they retreat from overloaded work and life schedules, I know first-hand the positive impact food has on the body and brain. Clients have been rejuvenated and freed of brain fog, relieved from stress symptoms, and now enjoy better overall health. However, the challenge is to incorporate healing foods into daily life. So it's an absolute pleasure for me to be invited to Erkan's GreenGo to make a difference in the lives of his customers and present the Geneva community with a sneak preview of our Healing Food startup, launching 2023 in Berlin." - Kai, CEO of Healing Food & Healing Food Consulting
The Scientific Context
Healthy eating is so important, especially in the morning. While the effects of diet on our physical health have long been known, neuro-nutrition researchers have discovered that our mental state is also affected by what we eat.
It subtly alters our brain chemistry, affecting our mood, memory, and even, some researchers say, our decisions. Our breakfast determines how we perform all day, mentally and physically.
Please take 6 minutes and watch the excerpt of the Deutsche Welle (DW) / Raphaël Hitier documentary "Better Brain Health - We Are What We Eat."
