Meals at Polestar

There are usually a variety of options that are suitable for most dietary preferences (vegan, gluten-free, low carb, etc). Before your arrival, we will notify the kitchen of your dietary preferences, and you are always more than welcome to sign up for cooking a meal or two a week for the community, if that is something you enjoy!

Here is a typical day of what our meals look like at Polestar:

BREAKFAST:

  • hot grain (most often oats but sometimes polenta or amaranth) with all the fixings – nuts, dried fruit, honey, etc
  • yogurt
  • fresh fruit (papaya, banana, lilikoi, soursop from the land)
  • sometimes eggs + potatoes + toast

LUNCH: ( best meal of the day in our opinion!)

  • lentils or beans
  • roasted or sauteed veggies from the land
  • grain (rice, quinoa, etc)
  • salad w/ avocado, sprouts, dressing
  • coco kimchee or cocokraut (our specialties)

DINNER: (varies depending on who is cooking)

  • can be as simple as soup
  • sometimes it’s a casserole with a dairy free option
  • we occasionally have sushi or pizza or other fun nights!
