Our message is simply this "Eat Good to Feel Good". A well-balanced diet provides all of the energy needed to keep active throughout the day. Nutrients are required for growth and repair, helping you to stay healthy and preventing diet-related illness. It is now known that your brain interacts with your gut which is known as, the gut brain Axis. One feeds the other. The two together provide information on how digestion, mood, health and thinking patterns are all interconnected. That might sound a bit sciencey but it's true and what we eat and how we cook to keep them both in peak performance is now more important than ever.
Janet Thurtell and Orli Rhodes have been neighbours and friends for over 20 years, their love of food has brought them together. Healthy eating has always been important to them, caring for their families and friends has made them appreciate the importance of good food and nutrition. With family members having been diagnosed with Lactose intolerance and malabsorption we have adopted a healthy low FODMAP lifestyle.
foodsmart was born out of a shared passion for locally sourced seasonal ingredients. We believe that simple, tasty, nutritious and healthy can go hand in hand. This is what we'd love to share with you.

Normally when I eat breakfast then do Yoga I am usually starving after. When I had foodsmart's Granola I felt I was fuller for longer.
I suffer a lot from IBS and feel ill most of the time after any other Granola. When I ate foodsmart's Matcha Granola I felt fantastic all morning long.
I can recommend the chocolate orange Granola. It has lovely chunks of baked orange peel and healthy organic cacao nibs. It was SO tasty and filling
