The Greedy Fox was developed after its founder was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2011 and immediately placed on around 15 medications including medications to manage the side effects of medications. This left him feeling with no control over his life or his health and the side effects quite honestly were horrendous. One medication left him feeling like he had the most horrendous flu 6 out of 7 days! He decided to take back control of his life and took things back to basics and began using herbs and spices to cook whole foods. As a trained chef he found his passion for food again and taste was of the utmost importance. Sometimes we look to processed food for the convenience and instant taste hit whereas whole foods can appear boring and a little bland and generally the belief is that they require a little too much effort. 2 years on and he only takes 1 prescribed medication a day!
At The Greedy Fox we firmly believe that eating healthily is far more than just watching your fat, salt, and sugar intake. Including herbs and spices in your diet has massive health benefits. We live in a society where we have easy access to pharmaceutical medications, and whilst these have their uses they also have lots of side effects and using them long term can be a worry. So what if we told you that eating amazing, tasty food can benefit your health? It’s not a new concept, in fact, its more about reminding us what we had available before we had pharmaceuticals, going back to basics. There is lots of evidence to suggest that processed foods and the way we eat now is causing huge health problems in the Western World so combining spices with whole foods is definitely one of the best things you will ever do for you and your families health. As an added bonus they make food taste amazing!!!
So this is what we are about, eating whole foods that taste fantastic and can be made quickly and easily, meaning we can all manage our health in the fast-paced world we live in.
