Nurish'd: Transform Health with Food as Medicine & Meal Prep

In an era where health consciousness is more than a trend but a lifestyle, the concept of 'food as medicine' has gained considerable traction. At Nurish'd, we embrace this philosophy wholeheartedly, integrating it with our innovative meal prep service to create a synergy that not only nourishes the body but also heals and rejuvenates it. This blog post explores how Nurish'd is revolutionizing the way we think about and consume our meals, making healthy eating effortless and accessible to everyone.

Nurish'd: How We Got Here:

Nurish’d is the evolution of Nutrimeals. Over the last 6 years we have had the extraordinary pleasure of learning about our customers and what they are looking for in a meal prep service. What we found is that what they want actually goes beyond saving time and convenience. In every true start up story, we noticed a gap when people came to us for nutrition guidance. Yes, we could provide the healthy prepared meals, but could we do more?

Among many other speedbumps that caused problems in our business, we came to a fork in the road. Either we accept our current business and enjoy it for what it is. Or we could totally flip the industry upside down and expand beyond Alberta's boarders. Since I’m writing this blog, you can assume that we chose the latter.

Nurish’d is just the beginning.

The Philosophy of Food as Medicine

Our health as a society has been put under a microscope. And more specifically, so has our food that we consume. The age-old saying, "You are what you eat," has never been more relevant. With rising health issues linked to poor dietary choices, the idea of using food as a form of medicine to combat and prevent diseases is increasingly compelling. Nurish'd takes this concept seriously, crafting meals that are not only delicious but are also tailored to boost health, enhance energy levels, and promote overall wellness.

Our menu is designed by nutrition experts who ensure that every dish provides optimal nutritional value without compromising on taste. Whether you're looking to manage weight, control a health condition, or simply maintain a healthy lifestyle, Nurish'd offers a variety of meal options to help you meet your dietary needs effectively.

How Meal Prep Fits Into the Equation

Since meal prep is the foundation of our mission, we would be silly to leave this part behind. Working with a dietitian and learning from them is just one part of the equation. Instead of only telling people what to eat, we can now give people the actual product to eat. Time is a precious commodity, and in the hustle and bustle of modern life, many find it challenging to prepare healthy meals daily – ESPECIALLY when it involves a total overhaul of what you’re used to. If I’m being completely honest, I was kind of tired of these food journaling companies only answering one part of the problem. Yeah, I’m calling out MyFitnessPal and Noom. They do what they need to very well. However, Nurish'd answers to the entire problem challenge by offering pre-prepared meals that eliminate the time-consuming aspects of meal planning and preparation, while following a specific meal plan that is made by a dietitian. Think of it as personalized nutrition care. With our service, you have access to nutritious meals that are ready to eat within minutes, aligning with the busy schedules of health-conscious individuals.

Special Features of Nurish'd

Here’s what sets us apart from the other options out there.

1. Customizable Meal Plans: Nurish'd understands that one size does not fit all when it comes to nutrition. Our customizable meal plans are ingredient based, not fad diet related. There is no 30 day weight loss here. We’re focused on healthy and SUSTAINABLE change here. Nurish’d gives you a meal plan based on your specific dietary needs and preferences, whether you need gluten-free, or any other special requirement.

2. Membership Based: Nurish’d offers memberships that can be claimed under your health benefits. How? When you work with a dietitian this is typically covered under your paramedical benefits. So yeah, you can totally buy this for yourself and then write it off. We offer 3 different tiers of membership that offer different features. In our top tier we offer a microbiome test so that you can get a full understanding of your gut health. And it gets better. Our dietitians work with you to go over the results and we provide you with the prepared meals that follow your results.

3. User-Friendly Website: Our limitations with Nutrimeals were caused by the platform we hosted the website on. I’ll give you a quick example; If you’ve been around for a while you’ll notice we change our menu very frequently. That meant we had to black out certain dates so there was no menu crossover for our production team. Having customers not be able to order from the website because of blacked out dates was brutal. Now with Nurish’d you choose your location and your delivery date FIRST so that you order from the correct corresponding menu.

I could go on for hours about the different features that Nurish’d brings to the table. You’ll have to try it for yourself to find out what it’s all about!

At Nurish'd, we believe that good health starts with prevention. By marrying the concept of food as medicine with our convenient meal prep solutions, we make it possible for everyone to eat well and live better. Our mission is simple: to provide you with the tools you need to transform your health through the power of nutritious, delicious meals. Join us on this journey to wellness, and let's make healthy eating a joyful and effortless part of your daily life.
