FOODFLICKER PROVIDES YOU WITH HEALTHY MEAL IDEAS USING PHOTOS, RECIPES AND EASY-TO-FOLLOW MEAL PLANS
Everybody eats food and most people want to eat tasty food first – if it’s healthy, that is a bonus. FoodFlicker addresses these ideals and aims to inspire people to establish a healthy pattern of eating that is personal to them. Eating this way should be conceptualised as a lifestyle rather than a diet. Personalisation is key as one size does not fit all either in terms of how we metabolise food or in terms of taste or preferences.The information provided by FoodFlicker is from experts: highly-qualified in the fields of nutrition and exercise science – nutritionists with years of experience dealing with the general public and elite athletes from a range of professional and amateur sports.
THE FOODFLICKER PHILOSOPHY...
...draws on many influences and blends the latest scientific research with our own successful nutrition practices from our team of experts and active practitioners from the past 10 years of dealing with clients ranging from elite professional athletes to weight loss clients from weekend warriors to patients with metabolic disease.We base our recipes primarily on fresh ingredients, keeping processed foods to a minimum, and minimising many of the factors associated with ill-health in the modern diet such as added sugars, processed vegetable and seed oils, artificial sweeteners and the rest.While the arguments continue to rage from low carbohydrate to low fat, from Paleo to vegan, there are two constants when it comes to healthy lifestyles: the presence of daily physical activity (all roads to good health include regular exercise in some form), and dietary patterns that are rich in wholesome foods that are fresh and minimally-processed.We don’t believe in counting calories or going hungry. With time at a premium in modern active lifestyle, we believe that meals should be quick and easy to prepare and taste great, whatever your goal. Our recipes are practiced by leading athletes and performance nutritionists, and merge this philosophy with the science of nutrition and performance.
