You’re sweet enough
Our menus are free from refined sugar and designed to help keep insulin levels in check, promote healthy blood sugar levels and foster long term health. Dysregulated insulin is one of the biggest causes of chronic disease and is intrinsically linked to the food we eat, which is why we focus on elevating complex flavours rather than relying on simple sugars.
Antioxidants, bioactive plant compounds and cruciferous veggies are a core part of our plans. They are the powerhouses of nutrition and enhance your biological processes - from immunity and detoxification, to energy production and gene expression, these functional foods are a staple in all our menus.
We use seasonal ingredients to optimise nutritional value and help you eat more intuitively. Our meals are super fresh, full whole foods and really high in plants. Why? Because diets high in whole, plant-based foods will fuel your health and help prevent chronic disease. We operate on a 70/30 plant to omnivore split, but we also have a fully plant-based menu to follow if that’s your preference. If you’re not quite ready to embrace the plant life – don’t worry. We also give you options to add extra protein.
GOOD FOR THE GUT
Our microbiome is linked to virtually every aspect of our health, from mood and immunity, to weight and hormone balance. Our menus work hard to promote and enhance microbial health by including lots of prebiotic, wild fermented foods, and resistant starches, and avoid the foods and chemicals that damage it.
FOCUSED ON FIBRE
Fibre is the unsung hero of nutrition, and most of us don’t get enough. Here’s the thing - the guidelines for fibre say that adults should be getting upwards of 30g per day, but the typical western diet gets less than half of this. Why does it matter? Fibre helps us feel full, improves the metabolism, slows digestion, combats chronic diseases like cancer and diabetes, and is essential for the health of the gut microbiome and immune system, so we’re on a quest to be full of it.
NUTRIENTS OVER CALORIES
We’re focused on nutrient density — not calorie density. Why? Because not all calories are created equal. We’re passionate about helping you cultivate a positive relationship with food, so that you can see that how you’re fuelling your body is more impactful than counting calories. That said, we understand that having a guide can be helpful, so the calorie counts for our meals are still there if you want them.
GLUTEN & DAIRY FREE
Gluten and dairy are some of the most common food sensitivities and have been linked to a variety of inflammatory, digestive, and skin related symptoms. So, our menus operate on a GF/DF basis to lighten the allergenic load, promote energy and help you diversify what you're eating.
We've all been there. Despite our best efforts, we’ve all reached the end of the week with bags of unused greens in the fridge, just too floppy to use. Throwing out fresh food is the worst, so we’ve designed our meal plans to encourage a zero-waste mentality, which means you can get more creative with ingredients, leftovers, and won’t be stuck with a ton of unused produce at the end of the week.
