Organic, Locally Sourced Ingredients

Savor the flavors of freshly grown herbs, fruits, and vegetables. All ingredients used by Amend’s chef are locally sourced or USDA certified organic. This practice ensures that every dish we serve is not only delicious, but nutritious and environmentally sustainable.


Sustainable Choices

Amend is a sustainable wellness retreat. By partnering with local farms throughout the greater Austin area, we significantly reduce our carbon footprint and support our community. Clients enjoy the benefits of fresh produce free from the chemicals often used in mass-produced, industrial agriculture.

Mindful Eating

Too often, eating is treated as a chore to be rushed through or demonized as the cause of weight gain. Amend’s facilitators encourage residents to pay attention to their meals while raising awareness of such feelings during these times. Clients also learn about hyper-local ingredients and the Austin area farms supporting our sustainable, organic meals. This knowledge builds appreciation for the origin of each meal. Mindful eating promotes a healthier relationship with food, improved mental well-being, and a greater mind-body connection.
