Jo’s Dal is completely delicious and so nourishing. I often grab one after a difficult day at work, or if I’m drained, and I can almost feel it instantly nurturing my soul as well as my body.

Jo uses skinless, pre-soaked, slow cooked lentils which make them more digestible, reduces the phytate and lectin content (some people have difficulty digesting and assimilating foods which contain these natural substances), and makes the nutrients more readily available and absorbable.

The combination of slow-cooked organic lentils - packed full of protein, B1,B6, folate, iron and other micronutrients, and high quality protein – with immune-boosting onions, garlic and chili, plus fibre and antioxidants from seasonal local veggies and MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) and immune-boosting lauric acid in organic coconut cream make Darlin’ Dal an incredibly nutrient-rich meal. Combine it with one of their sprouted salads, and you have a complete vegetarian protein, and a no-fuss meal that will help balance your mood, control blood sugar and energy levels, and nourish your entire body all your round. Darlin Dal is the perfect nutrient-dense vegetarian meal for anyone wanting to maximise their health and well-being.


“At 83, Uncle Peter is a physically active person who walks 10+ km per day collecting recyclables (he calls this work). He then converts it to cash so he can buy blankets and tinned food for the homeless throughout Adelaide CBD.

He 'works' 10-12 hours per days 365 days per year and keeping his independence is my No. 1 priority while still trying to manage his dementia and bipolar.

Your meal options are a pivotal component to his independence and ability to remain in his own home as long as practical.

Thanks for indulging my storytelling in providing you with the context that Darlin Dal plays in Peter's well-being.

Many thanks for the excellent service – I love your business ethos.”
