Hello we are Crucial. We live for nutrition.

Nourish yourself with positive nutrition and healthy food.

Crucial Food has been established to provide nutritional advice and nutritionally balanced food.

Food is fun. But we also know that we need to take it seriously and make the right choices. Our bodies love fresh ingredients – the purer the food, the better they can repair themselves, get good energy and be happy.

Our quest is to help you be healthier by maintaining a way of eating that works long term. No faddy dieting – just making the right choice for you so you can love your food!


A little bit about me...


Don’t dig your grave with your own knife and fork

Most of us love the idea of eating well or at least, better.

The hard bit is putting into action all the information we’re armed with – usually through lack of time, dislike of cooking or both.

It’s good to be excited about your food and Crucial knows about the importance of nutritional balance and making food taste good.

The food is made with a Crucial nutritional brain, Love and attention and can be personalised to suit your own goals.

It hasn’t come from years of scientific research. They’re fashionable – a bit like perms and mullets once were but thankfully with more [...]

I’m a fan of raw food. It’s a big part of what we deliver at Crucial – raw food cleanses. We love them. But how beneficial and sustainable is a raw food diet 24 hours a day 7 days a week? Apart from the nutritional benefits, shouldn’t the psychological ones be considered too? I can’t [...]

I LOVE SOUP. Any time of year, thick and chunky, spicy and noodly, soup with the texture of baby food – I really love it. Even cold. Soup is just something that’s good for us that doesn’t take too much effort or require too much perfection in the preparation. You can pack it with protein [...]
