ABOUT US
LET FOOD BE YOUR MEDICINE AND MEDICINE BE YOUR FOOD
Our mission is to revolutionise the way we look at our food

Matt developed a fascination for the genius of ordinary food when he was 8 years old and he was told the story of how his dad and uncle were cured from a fatal dose of whooping cough with chickens foot jelly!

With the advent of the internet Matt pursued his fascination with the health benefits of ordinary food and became steadily frustrated with the oceans of misleading and often contradictory information about food and nutrition on the internet.

Having spent years running web development agencies Matt came up with the idea for checkyourfood.com, a site designed to bring clarity to an area awash with hearsay and misinformation.

Matt is also the author of 'The Genius of Ordinary Food'. Click here to view the book on Amazon

Our mission

“Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food” – Hippocrates

Our mission is to revolutionise the way we look at our food

We are seeking to realise our mission by providing a platform where:

  • You can access the science on natural nutrients, including: micronutrients - vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, amino acids and fatty acids, and macronutrients - carbohydrate, fibre, protein and fat, in an accessible form.
  • You can browse through ingredients and meals and find out what nutrients are in them.
  • You can analyse your meals and find out what nutrients are in them.
  • You can track what you are eating and see if you are getting what you need to protect your health.
  • You can establish an accurate ‘balanced diet’ based on the recommended intakes of nutrients for you.
  • You can profile yourself and get recommendations on the specific nutrients that evidence suggests will benefit you.
  • You can instantly check which nutrients that evidence suggests help with conditions and then build meals with the highest yields.
  • You can exclude allergens when browsing for ingredients and meals high in certain nutrients.
  • You can keep up to date with the latest developments in nutritional science.
  • You can take control of your diet with the knowledge you need to enhance your health and wellbeing, quickly and easily.
