EAT FIT FOOD - 5 DAY CLEANSE


Eat Fit food

Fresh Wholefoods Delivered Daily
 Last week I had the pleasure of experiencing Sydney based wholefoods company EAT FIT FOOD’S 5 Day Cleanse program. The home delivery service that delivers more than just food to your door step but a  nourishing, vital & wholesome cleanse with absolute attention to detail, from the Detox guide book you receive on the first day to your daily menu explaining your daily plan. No need to worry about chemicals, preservatives or added sugars as EFF is 100% sustainable, chemical & preservative free with all their meals made with a wholefood approach. ETT was founded in 2002 by Bianca Monley with a belief in keeping life simplistic just as Bianca’s wholefood company motto states below.
Another advantage of EFF is even after your cleanse you can keep on ordering with their flexible dining options & order per meal. This is perfect if you know you have a huge week coming up where you will be arriving home late at night or simply cannot leave the dreaded office desk to hunt the city for a quality wholefood meal. This will insure you stay on track with your health & don’t fall off the wholefoods bandwagon!

 The Experience
Monday morning could not have come quicker in anticipation for the start of my EFF 5 day cleanse program. Like a sunflower beaming towards the sun as did I bouncing out of bed like it was Christmas in July, well let me tell you the next 5 days were exactly that as I open my door each morning to my delivery it really was Christmas every day & a surprise as to what nourishment those EFF esky bags would contain to feed my vital force over the coming week.
From breakfast to Morning Tea to Lunch to Dinner my day was amplified by the thought each of these meals were not only cleansing my body, mind & soul but had carefully been prepared & put together by the EFF team. Every meal was fresh, abundant & the highest quality. The portion sizes were extremely generous & now that my weeks meals were set out for me I could actually see that even as a nutritionist how much I actually do OVEREAT & more often than not I have my hand in & out of that goji berry jar!

Your morning starts with a fresh cold pressed Juice which was changed throughout the week so you had the perfect balance of every colour of the juicing rainbow. Next is a nourishing breakfast, my FAVE would have to be the Green Eggs with Sweet potato rosti, roasted cherry tomatoes that literally burst vitality in your mouth & a nourishing green juice.
Next is a light morning snack which consisted of a beautiful array of fresh fruit, homemade apple & banana bread, homemade EFF cleanse bars or carob & banana bliss balls. These snacks were perfect for that 10am pick me up instead of an acidic, nutrient depleting energy sucking LATTE & kept my blood sugar levels balanced right through to my gourmet lunch.

I must admit lunch was one of my FAVE meals of the day as there really is no greater feeling than waking up in the morning & knowing you have a nutritious lunch in the fridge ready to GO! Don’t get me wrong as I love to make my own lunch but there are always those weeks where we fall victim to the BUSY MONSTER!!! EFF lunches are full of abundance, variety & are well balanced to keep you content right through to dinner but don’t think it’s all over there.... Afternoon snacks are next & they really are like having canapés at sunset whilst sailing around Sydney Harbour.
Now that I’ve returned from my day dreaming of canapés whilst sailing the south of France I open my little containers to a fresh array of crunchy raw veggie sticks or rice crackers with a selection of homemade dips. Absolute bliss I would call it & treats that are full of essential nutrients which kept me bouncing right through my afternoon yoga practice & onto dinner. My personal FAVE was the Mushroom Pate with raw veggie sticks, YUMO!

With busy schedules & that dreaded BUSY MONSTER looming over you at around 7:00pm the sheer thought of having to try juggle getting home & cooking an abundant, well balanced & variety rich meal is for most people at the bottom of their lists... Well EFF have it covered with an exquisite array of meals which I’m sure will impress the most judging of food critics. Each dinner has flavours that burst in your mouth & freshness you could not only taste but feel through the textures. My taste buds really were on a magic carpet ride each night as I ate my way through cuisine of the world. My FAVE was the Oven Baked ocean trout with fresh tomatoes, pea puree, asparagus & a lemon caper dressing.

Q&A
Q. What inspired you to create a wholefood company?
A. One of the best things in life is waking up each day happy and healthy. I am extremely passionate about fitness and food and became frustrated working in the fitness industry seeing all these fad diets come and go which would only result in a continious battle for people with weight and wellbeing goals. Diets were something obsessed about and food was not something seen a pleasurable experience. I quickly became very motivated and inspired to educate and help people.  Eating healthily can be a enjoyable way of living and partnered up with exercise an extremely positive life changing experience.
