Our Food Philosophy

Nourish's approach to food is simple: 

  • reduce refined carbohydrates;
  • promote balanced meals; and
  • maintain the taste, texture, and familiarity of foods that API communities love.

We believe in eating nutritionally balanced meals that are satisfying and sustainable in the long term. To achieve this, we develop carbohydrate-consistent recipes that contain 45g to 60g of carbohydrates per meal and 15g of carbohydrates per snack. 

In addition, to help promote cardiovascular and renal functions, all of Nourish's proprietary recipes are under 600mg of sodium, 20g of fat, and 30g of protein per person per meal.

Everyone has different nutrient needs. We create tips and recipes as general starting points. Please discuss with your healthcare provider to adjust tips and recipes for your individual needs and health goals.

The Plate Method

For readers who want a simple way to eat more balanced meals, we suggest the American Diabetes Association's (ADA) Diabetes Plate Method. This method encourages balanced meals without the stress of calculating macronutrients. This figure (and our logo!) can help you remember the Plate Method's proportions.
