Nas is founder of MY Food, the luxury diet meal delivery service. Her passion for multi-cultural cuisine was fuelled as a youngster by family holidays around the world.  Encouraged to try ‘anything and everything’, Nas soon developed an educated palette.  It was natural then, that on leaving school, Nas would study Catering and Hospitality Management, earning her qualifications which then led her to a career initially working in restaurants and professional kitchens both in the UK and abroad. 

After a stint working in the BBC Television Centre restaurant Nas worked in a luxury hotel in France, and then lived, worked and travelled in Australia, Malaysia and Thailand for a few years. It was here that she was able to hone her culinary skills further and learn more about the various cooking techniques that would later inspire her to start MY Food. 

Returning to the UK, in 1998, she set up her first business, Bodhi by Nas, a made to measure clothing brand, sold via home parties, which she ran for over 7 years.  During this time Nas decided to embark on detox to kick start her own health and fitness regime.  After a couple of weeks spent making meals for herself using specialist recipe books, Nas realised that, whilst the results justified the effort, not everyone has the time available to indulge themselves by cooking foods that require such specialist ingredients, although the demand was apparent for a range that would provide healthy, balanced and delicious foods that would ensure great weight loss results.  

Launched in 2004, as Detox in a Box, the company has grown organically and now boasts over 4000 customers, who enjoy delicious, fresh and healthful meals delivered to their door.  With a celebrity following, and five star reviews from the press, the company is thriving and going from strength to strength. The rebrand in 2011 to MY Food supports further growth and product expansion. 

The MY Food menu plans include dishes from Europe, the Middle East and Asia, truly providing exquisite meals for all tastes, but refined to exclude the fats and oils commonly found in international cuisine.   In her spare time, Nas still travels extensively, and freely admits that whatever she eats when she’s on holiday is likely to appear on the next menu (with a healthy twist!)  

MY Food has received critical acclaim in the Daily Mail, OK! Magazine, Daily Telegraph and Tatler (to name a few) and is endorsed by Kirsty Gallacher, who credits the programme with helping her to get back into shape after the birth of her second child, and Gabby Logan.
