The Nourish Difference
Feed Your Best Self
Connecting to your body through food so you feel nourished, healthy, and well.
Committed to helping you reach optimal health, Sodexo chefs and nutritionists have crafted the Nourish menu exclusively for Sharp Healthcare, using the most up-to-date research on genomic nutrition as well as the culinary genomic principles developed by Amanda Archibald, RD and The Genomic Kitchen.
Nourish is a public health* menu inspired by the research done in the Blue Zones and based on the principals of Culinary Genomics, the union of culinary arts and nutrigenomics.
* We all can benefit from the same food ingredients in the Nourish menu, however, how much is needed to optimize those benefits is based on our individual make up.
Nourish is a groundbreaking healthcare menu featuring a delicious variety of foods known to powerfully assist the healing process and generate long-term health benefits.
From gut to brain, from cardiovascular health to immune system strength and beyond, the menu’s selection, preparation and combination of key (gene-related) ingredients is specifically designed to turn on the important functions inside each cell that help keep our body working properly. These functions are necessary for the overall working of the body's systems.
*The Food-Gene-Health Connection
Most of us think of our genes as something we inherited from our parents. They’re what make our eyes a certain color, or our hair straight or curly or why some of us can look so much like our brothers and sisters. And while that’s all true, it’s just part of your gene story.
Every day, genes play an important role in how your body uses the food you eat.
Genes respond to food in ways that influence the body processes needed to stay alive and maintain good health - processes as diverse as those that impact heart, brain, gut, immune, and other vital systems. Different foods turn different genes on and off. Nourish foods are made with gene-focused ingredients, each carefully chosen for how it activates gene responses that are helpful for specific conditions as well as for overall health and healing. Nourish makes the food-gene-health connections your body needs to function at its best.
*All human beings are 99.9 percent identical in their genetic makeup. Differences in the remaining 0.1 percent hold important clues about the causes of diseases.
