split is about empowering you to make the most of your foods, to choose quality over commodity and to give your body what it craves and deserves. The science in our food is complex, but the concept is simple–split is the perfect combination of one good fat and one good carb.
As a chef, my world revolves around finding the best possible foods and flavors. For years, I lived by the mantra that taste trumps nutrition. But my energy level and health suffered as I juggled multiple restaurants and long hours in the kitchen.
A fateful meeting with Dr. Philip Goglia, an elite performance nutritionist, changed the way I view food and my mindset around nutrition. His message was simple: eat real foods, eat enough balanced foods and drink lots of water. It isn’t just what you eat, but how you combine a nutritious fat and a simple carb to insure pure and sustained energy.
As I became more mindful about what I ate and the combinations of what I put into my body, the better I felt. As an experienced chef, I was now schooled in an important lesson: the right combinations of food could taste great and be nutritious. And of course, as a chef, I now wanted to feed everyone using this new mindset on food.
I started with the simple question, “How can I make better foods on the go?” We are all crunched for time and always racing from one meeting or errand, and that is when we make bad food choices–myself included! I wanted to bring my realizations about real foods and the right combinations of whole foods into a convenient package. Something that I would eat myself, and more importantly, something I would be proud to serve my friends and family…and if something naturally tastes amazing, then that is a perfect place to start. The peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a staple of American packed lunches, was the inspiration for my earliest efforts. Inspired by Dr. Goglia, I realized this beloved pairing combined carbs and protein for peak performance and sustained energy. Our parents were on to something all those years ago!
split is the result of a lot of tinkering in my kitchen, passionate experimentation and dreaming. It is the perfect combination of two real foods in a smart ready-to-eat pack that you can feel good about eating and sharing.
