  • 2Food Secret is a new fast food concept that helps customers to make healthy lunch choices through a tailor-made menu service, well-informed chefs and a nutritional labelling system. At the Tailor Made counter, customers choose from a variety of ingredients and design their own salad, sandwich or soup.

    On-site chefs offer advice based on taste preferences and nutritional needs and enter ingredients into a touchscreen monitor as they prepare the meal. This information is relayed to a counter-top display, showing customers the total calorie count, nutritional values and price of their meal as ingredients are added. The completed order is also printed onto the packaging, with a nutritional breakdown of the meal as a proportion of the recommended nutrient intake.

    Customers can also use kiosks at the front of the store to design meals, which are collected from a quick-serve counter. There are plans to offer the meal customisation service online, with orders to be picked up in-store or delivered across central London.

    Food Secret works with leading chefs and nutritionists to design the menu of ready-prepared meals and who also helped create the patent-pending software database used in the touchscreen monitors. A five-star rating system highlights the healthiest options. Food Secret has plans to host cookery courses and classes on nutrition-related topics such as how to slow down the ageing process through a judicious diet.

    I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVED that you are what you eat, and as I have grown older I have gone to great

    lengths to educate myself in how to create a healthy diet to live on.

    My time working in the City of London opened my eyes to whole a

    community of people like me young, energetic, time poor, but health

    conscious. We needed fast and nutritious food to facilitate a long day in

    the office, but where could we get it? Gone were the days when young city

    types had a beer and curry at lunch time, I was amongst a group who worked

    hard, played hard and lived a fast and furious lifestyle.

    Being Italian, I have been brought up in an environment where food is

    celebrated, and taste can never be compromised. The enjoyment of food is

    at the heart of Southern European and Mediterranean wellbeing.

    To be clear, I am a foodie first and foremost, and I believe that is perfectly

    possible to create cuisine that offers fantastic flavour alongside nutritional

    benefit. But I also believe that is perfectly possible to create a new brand

    that would serve its food in such a different way to be seen as a pioneer of

    food experience.

    Food Secret is a tailor made fast-food restaurant and food shop. Our

    mission is to discover the secret to the best food experience and share it

    with you.

    We source the best and freshest ingredients. We challenge international

    recipes and techniques to create new products that enrich the taste of every

    single ingredient. We challenge chefs, nutritionists, architects, music writers,

    fashion gurus and software designers to collaborate and provide new and

    provocative food experiences. A magical combination of research, passion

    and creativity is the secret ingredient of Food Secret.

    Before Food Secret there was no simple system in place to instantaneously

    measure the nutritional values of what we eat. So weve devised one to do

    just that. During this pioneering food journey we are developing essential

    knowledge that we are willing to share. This is why we decided to create the

    magazine: to enable the information to flow freely to you.

    The new magazine aims to share our brand ethos; telling you what we

    know about food and nutrition in a friendly, simple and palatable manner;

    explaining why we are so involved in fashion and art; presenting a beautiful

    and interesting publication that you want to keep.

    Food Secret is my life and my passion; I aim to make life better by giving

    Londoners a new experience...

    I look forward to seeing you at Food Secret.

  • 4YOU ARE WHAT YOU DIGEST AND ABSORB IS PROBABLY MORE ACCURATE THAN SAYING YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.

    If your digestion is not working effectively then you could experience health problems even if you are eating healthily. Your body needs a wide range of different nutrients on a daily basis in order to keep functioning optimally, so what you eat and how much you actually digest and absorb can have a fundamental effect on many areas of your health.

    Poor digestion can produce symptoms such as bad skin, low energy and

    low immunity, and can be linked to many degenerative diseases including

    osteoporosis, arthritis and bowel cancer.

    There are many ways you can look after and support your digestive system.

    Start your day by giving your beneficial bacteria a boost. They help you get

    more out of the foods you eat by helping to breakdown foods as part of

    the digestive process. Try the Berry Compote Granola Pot, or the Soaked

    Orchard Fruit Granola Pot.

    Wheat is high in a substance called gluten, which can be hard work on the

    digestive system and can make you more bloated. Instead of a sandwich,

    choose a soup or a salad to help flatten your stomach.

    Salmon and Spring Vegetable Soup contains high fibre foods such as spinach,

    brown rice and asparagus and is completely wheat free. Or try Moroccan

    Chicken and Quinoa Salad. Quinoa is a South American seed similar to

    couscous, but its completely gluten free.

    Fibre is vital for proper digestion. Soluble fibre can help keep your bowels

    moving more regularly, and it may also be beneficial for lowering overall

    blood cholesterol as well as helping to eliminate any toxins in the body.

    Beans and pulses, vegetables, fruits, oats, barley, rye and seeds are all good

    sources of soluble fibre.

    Get a real fibre-boost from the Wholegrain and Super Vegetable Salad that

    contains a mixture of wholegrains and mixed beans. Or go for the Crunchy

    Vegetable Detox Soup that contains a bumper amount of different soluble

    fibre sources such as a mix of wholegrains, seeds, broccoli and spinach.

    As an added bonus the soup also includes some ginger which can help sooth

    and heal irritated digestive tract.

    DID YOU KNOWthat digestion begins even before you put food in your mouth? Just the sight and smell of food is enough to start the process that helps you digest food. Once you start chewing, enzymes in your saliva start breaking down foods. A health digestive system is a sum of many parts and there are a number of different ways you can help keep it functioning well.

    Start your day by being gentle on your digestion. Mix up a tablespoon of

    linseeds in a glass of water, keep in the fridge overnight, and drink the liquid

    and the seeds in the morning. The fibre from the linseeds will help keep you

    regular and sooth your digestion.

    Follow your linseed drink with a bowl of porridge. Oats are low in gluten,

    the substance high wheat which can irritate your digestive system. They are

    also high in soluble fibre and in addition to being gentle on your digestion

    can help lower cholesterol levels.

    If you want to add an extra boost to your porridge, soak some almonds,

    sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds overnight and mix into your porridge.

    Soaking makes the nuts and seeds easier to digest so youll get more benefit!

    If you suffer from flatulence and bloating, add more ginger to your foods.

    Grate some into your stir fries, or make fresh ginger tea by cutting slices of

    ginger root and pouring hot water over them.

    Look after your friendly bacteria, and top them up regularly by eating live

    yoghurt and cottage cheese. Miso, a fermented soya bean paste, is also

    a good source of beneficial bacteria. You can make a satisfying broth by

    adding 2-3 tablespoons of miso paste into 1 litre of hot water. You can then

    add a selection of vegetables and beans to make a satisfying soup thats also

    high in fibre.

    And finally, instead of traditional teas and coffees, stock up peppermint and

    fennel teas and drink some after each meal to aid digestion.

    Food Secret top 10 tipsKeep yourself topped up with water drink at least eight glasses a day to help your digestion run more smoothly. You can also include herbal teas. Peppermint, dandelion, chamomile and fennel teas are all cal
