At the bottom of this page, you'll find links to content that we've written for other sites and newsletters.

We're often asked about the foods that we choose and eat, so our founder made a project of taking pictures of some of the meals that they prepared as a family and ate at home.  He believes that each meal or snack time is an opportunity to nourish your body with foods that make help you perform better and that lead to better short and long-term health.  

As you scroll through, you should notice a theme that the proteins, grains, veggies and fruits aren't always separated on their plates. Meals are architected to maximize the number of whole foods that can be integrated.  Of course, they're adventurous with cuisines, flavors, textures and seasonal food options!  

Life gets in the way of being as diligent as we'd like with posting these but feel free to follow us on Instagram by clicking the main photo:
