The idea for Nutritious Gifts started after a friend of ours was diagnosed with cancer. We searched online for the right gift to send him, but we were disappointed to only find the typical options of flowers, candy or highly processed foods.
As health professionals with knowledge about the power of healthy eating, we wanted something more, something that would actually help him along on his new health journey.
So, we went to the grocery store and hand-selected specific food items with his health condition in mind and created our first gift box.
Since then, our mission with Nutritious Gifts has been to create specific gift packages to send loved ones with particular health conditions such as heart disease, cancer or diabetes.
We strive to select products that are practical and evidence-based for whichever health condition your loved one may have. Additionally, we seek vendors who take great pride in their food products and use only whole foods and natural ingredients.
Rebecca is a registered dietitian (R.D.) and Matt is a medical doctor (M.D.) who both practice a whole-food, non-processed food approach to eating. We believe in the power of healthy eating, and believe that a balanced diet is the key to a long life. However, we are also foodies who are not shy about eating things we love, including the occasional donut!
