Meet Kaylee and Kelsi Davenport. The culinary couple’s military travels took them from metro Detroit to Washington D.C. to Sicily. Now they call Traverse City home, with a new business at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons called FYT Health Foods.
Gluten-free. Low-sodium. Ketogenic. No matter your dietary concern, if you have one, it’s a demanding task to pay attention to every detail of every meal. And, you’re likely accustomed to spending extra time seeking out special foods—and spending extra money on them.
Well, now you can have a personal team of chefs that delivers gourmet meals right to your door, geared exactly toward YOUR health concerns, without the extra price tag.
FYT (Fuel Your Tomorrow) provides clean, sustainable meals—including cuisines from across the world—for all diet types and lifestyles. Grab-and-go meals are available as well as made-to-order soups, salads and sandwiches. They’re best known for their meal plans, which start at six delivered meals a week for $80. (FYT Health Foods is expanding its meal preparation services during the COVID-19 pandemic and the kitchen is getting a deep clean twice a day. Read more here.)
“The question we get asked most is: ‘Can you do THIS diet?’” shares chef Kaylee Davenport.
The answer is yes.
“It’s 100 percent customizable and we can absolutely work with your dietary needs, no matter what they are,” Kaylee explains. “The basis of these lifestyle plans—they’re not really diets, as this is your long-term lifestyle—is they all come down to just being healthy. Good grain, protein, low sugar and lots of veggies and fruits. That’s the basis of every diet. After that, we adjust accordingly.”
A lot of FYT’s meal plans go to residents at Cordia—the neighboring, all-inclusive senior residential community at Grand Traverse Commons. “With our meal plans, we offer many things that are geared toward health concerns, such as diabetes or diet restrictions like low-sodium,” Kaylee says. “We separate all cooking so there’s no cross-contaminating.”
If you don’t have any dietary restrictions but are interested in a meal plan, FYT Health Foods offers non-diet specific plans as well.
