We understand that meals are not what they used to be, whether it’s an active lifestyle, an unexpected (or planned) busy period, illness or just the daily struggle. We don’t always have the luxury of time to prepare our meals or sit around a table and eat them together. However, we still need to eat good food that is nutrient dense and delicious to make sure we all have long and healthy lives.
Food is not what it used to be either, just take a look around your local supermarket. The manufactured food industry is controlled by big brands and they don’t really care if it makes you sick or not – just whether the shareholders make a profit. That sometimes means substituting real ingredients with unnatural concoctions that can build up in your system, cause allergies, can taste bad and make you reliant (or addicted) to their products. So don’t get us started on preservatives and gassing fresh food to keep it in date longer!
We firmly believe that food is medicine and that eating delicious whole nourishing organic foods will lead to a healthier you. It is also important to us that it doesn’t cost the earth. Which is why we use locally grown, seasonal produce which is how we can keep our prices as low as possible and to ensure food is at it’s prime when we cook it and deliver to your door.
We provide the most convenient way to eliminate processed food from your diet, by supplying whole foods cooked to perfection by experienced gourmet chefs who are passionate about good food.
Years of experience has taught us that nutrition is personal, just like food preferences are. And while there are many different diets, traditions, cultures and healthy foods there is unlikely to be one perfect diet for all of mankind. However there are definitely a bunch of sound ideas that we can all embrace. Here are the ones that experience and Science support.
Eat real food, we believe that it's a good idea to eat food that would be recognised by your great-grandmother as actual food. We also respect that while there is a place for processing (and can in fact be health benefits) like consider the benefits of fermentation (a form of processing) think yoghurt, sauerkraut and activated nuts, we don’t believe in using foods that have been so processed that most of their goodness has been lost.
So we don't use cane sugar in anything. We don't believe that nature makes bad food, so we are not anti carbs or anti fats. In fact we typically try to include both in every meal... And protein is important, but enough is enough. Even too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. We support Michael Pollan’s point of view that we should all "Eat More Plants". And as for restrictive diets, they end up in disordered eating, instead we favour the "crowd out" dietary approach: If you eat more of the good stuff, there’s no room left for the bad stuff!

It’s all gluten-free, dairy free, and as much as possible locally sourced and organic, designed, prepared and portioned by a team of chefs and nutritionists.
The focus is on whole foods and we don't bulk up your food with a bunch of nasty ingredients, preservatives, sugar, excess salts or gases to give it a longer shelf life or make it pretend to be something it's not.
We take the work out of meal-prep and once you get a taste for our good food – and the time you get back into your day we know you will want to keep eating the food that makes you feel good.
