EAT FIT FOOD HEALTH KIT INTIMATE DINNER

To supplement or not to supplement? A night with EATFITFOOD and Nuzest on debunking the supplement myth.

Last night we attended an intimate dinner hosted by Eat Fit Food to mark the launch of their partnership with Nuzest. We heard professional views on taking supplements from Professor Kerryn Phelps (Australian Medical Practitioner) around integrated medicine practices and Jaime Rose Chambers (Eat Fit Food Dietitian).

Just a quick rundown on EAT FIT FOOD – healthy, home delivered meals straight to your front door, including breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks! Established now for 12 years and with a cult celebrity following, EFF is your go-to for pre-prepared meals. Having now established their EAT FIT FARM (farm to fork for your deliveries!) you can also head to their beautiful Southern Highlands property for foodie retreats.

We snacked on canapes of rockmelon with cashew puree and delightful beetroot macarons. The tables looked absolutely stunning with flowers from Floreat and the cutest little succulent pots – a fabulous take home gift that are sitting pretty on our desks this morning!

As part of the evolution of Eat Fit Food, a supplement line has been developed in partnership with Nuzest Australia. During 2015-16, Australians are expected to spend $603.3 million on weight-loss counselling services and related low-calorie foods and dietary supplements, so it’s a relevant health food discussion to table.

Professor Kerryn Phelps spoke on topics such as self-prescribing, ‘do supplements work’, not getting the correct advice, incorrect doses and the interaction supplements have with other drugs we take. We discovered just how important it is not to grab a supplement off the shelf. You should always seek professional advice when looking to supplement your diet.

Jaime Rose Chambers (Kerryn’s daughter) is the resident EAT FIT FOOD dietician, and in addition to regular meal plans for the program, Jaime has also developed programs for people with diabetes and fertility issues that is due to roll out this year. We were shocked to learn that only 5.5% of Australians meet the daily fruit and vegetable requirements! Jaime’s view is that supplements should not replace your nutritional diet, however support your system and perhaps provide extra nutrition if you are, for example, vegetarian or vegan.

So, down to the product. ‘Good Green Stuff’ – this excites us! It’s a super-blend of nutrient-rich greens, fruits, vegetables, herbs and berries that packages all your daily nutritional needs into one great-tasting product. Quick and easy to take and boosts our nutrient and vitamin intake. Love it!

‘Clean Lean Protein’ – sourced from European Golden Peas, Clean Lean Protein has up to 90% protein content, is low in carbohydrates and easy to digest, so. Clean Lean Protein is the ultimate supplement for those who lead healthy lifestyles and are discerning about what they put in their body. You can throw it into the mix of your bliss balls amongst other things as a delicious additional ingredient.

We just have to say that the food was AMAZING! An EAT FIT FOOD menu cooked by the chefs at Simmer on the Bay and we inhaled every mouthful. Roast chicken, lamb, rainbow trout and the most delish walnut and shaved fennel salad.
