A family project with a mission
Hi, I’m Mateusz Żłobiński and I created NutriDietBlog.com. First, let me briefly present this project.
NutriDietBlog.com is a blog about simple and healthy nutrition. I created this project to promote a diet which is as nutritious as possible and to provide you with tools thanks to which healthy can mean simple, fast and easy. As the content of the blog and the group of my recipients started to grow, I invited my sister Agnieszka to work with me.
In our work together, we combine our greatest passions. I prepare the content, research, analyses, calculations, and Agnieszka takes care of the practical part – preparation of simple and tasty recipes with the best nutritional profile.
Apart from NutriDietBlog.com, for several years we have been developing the Polish blog salaterka.pl – together we have already published 3 books, which became bestsellers in Poland with over 50 thousand copies sold. Currently, we work full-time on the development of the blog salaterka.pl and the blog you are visiting right now – NutriDietBlog.com. We are very happy to have you here! 🙂
We create simple illustrated recipes with a list of nutrients and complete plant-based meal plans providing over twice as many nutrients as an average Western European diet. Everything we do is motivated by one idea: to make it simple, fast and nutritious. This way, even the busiest people can use our work and eat healthy food every day.
Mateusz – brother
First of all, I am a husband and father. I’m also a member of a loving family, a friend, a big optimist and a health recovery enthusiast. I will tell you how my adventure with discovering truths about nutrition and analyzing the nutritional composition of products started and what was the trigger for the blog.
The adventure started about 10 years ago.
I was at the point of graduating from IT studies. I worked intensively and spent 12 hours a day in front of a computer on average. I drank gallons of coffee and ate junk food. I smoked 2 packets of cigarettes a day. I weighed 100 kg (I’m 172 cm tall). I felt awful.
Finally, I started looking for solutions.
I decided to move. Having made an initial research on the subject of physical activity, I opted for running. My soul of a researcher told me to prepare for it adequately. I read all possible forums, I bought 3 books on running, a complete running outfit and a heart rate monitor – one of the best models then available on the market, so that I could monitor my pulse, which had to be on a level ensuring an optimum weight loss.
After 2 months of preparations, I was finally ready 😉 I grabbed my training plan and I strolled to the park. When I reached it, the heart rate monitor started beeping and obliged me to stop and finish my training. My heart rate was at its maximum levels. At that moment I understood that I needed serious changes.
In search of truth
With my mood and physical condition worsening, my motivation to change things started growing. After a year, I was able to run 60 minutes without stopping, I quit smoking and banned junk food from my diet. I also started searching intensively for nutrition solutions. However, my research was accompanied by ever growing frustration. My soul of researcher made me read hundreds of books and papers. However, I was finding only contrary information and loads of very superficial advice. On top of that, I got discouraged by complicated recipes. I lost 30 kg, but still my energy level was far from desirable. I went a step further in my research.
I decided to search for the truth myself.
I asked myself a few questions: What is it that my organism really needs and do I provide my body with it? How to balance my diet so that I can reach my target physical condition? How to plan my children’s diet so that they stay healthy and are full of energy? I started my analysis based on recommendations of the most important health organizations in the world. I had the list of necessary nutrients (e.g., vitamins, minerals, amino acids) and the list of harmful substances (e.g., cholesterol, saturated fat and sugar).
Then, what diet is the best?
It is a diet that provides us with a maximum of nutrients and a minimum of harmful substances. After all, this is the goal of nutrition – to feed our organism. We eat to provide our organism with nutrients necessary to live. At the same time, we have to be careful not to supply harmful substances. That is all.
This research has absorbed me completely. And the result is this blog and the Nutri Diet eBook.
Today, I have nothing to do with IT, and when I think of it, a joke comes to my mind: when I think what kind of IT specialist I am, I’m afraid to go to the doctor 😉
I spend each moment on learning more and more about the subject of health and nutrition, which has become my great passion. I run the blog, participate in different communities and I’m always eager to share my knowledge.
Agnieszka – sister
I am a great fan of nutri diet and I follow it myself.
I used to live in a rush, and now I live actively yet peacefully, as close to nature as possible. I practice mindfulness, travel, spend a lot of time close to nature, preferably hiking in the mountains, walking in the woods or at the ocean’s shore, and I still look for simple ways to eat healthy every day. I’m also the favorite aunt (the so-called play-aunt) of my brother’s children 🙂
By profession, I am a marketing specialist, however, I definitely have more fun using my business skills acquired over the past decade to promote the values I cherish related to healthy lifestyle and make a living out of my passion than working at a corporation. I welcomed the health subject into my life over 8 years ago when I started suffering very painfully the effects of workaholism combined with very bad nutrition. I was on the edge of professional burnout. Additionally, almost every day I woke up with a huge headache and took a lot of painkillers. One day when running to catch the tram, I felt close to suffocating. This was the sign that I had to do something about it.
I gradually started changing things. I looked for ways of bringing balance into my life and improve my health condition. I quit smoking, started eating more vegetables and – with great suffering and with a plan for complete beginners – I started running. After a year, I felt much better and wanted more. A real breakthrough for me were Tony Robbins’s workshops. He inspired me to adopt a fully plant-based diet. After a 10-day detox, I was full of energy like a child who can run all day and almost never gets tired. Mateusz took similar decision at the same time. We supported each other in those beginnings and when talking with our family. They used to ask us terrified: “What are you going to eat now? Where you will get protein from? And iron?” Finally, they started trusting us, and today we serve up to 90% of plant-based dishes at our family parties. Mateusz was digging into the subject, started writing a blog, sharing his knowledge. And I was eagerly discovering new recipes and solutions to have even more energy and feel even better.
How I feel today has nothing to do with what was happening to me several years ago. I live a healthy and active life, taking care of my life balance. My cuisine is primarily nutrition based. I love cooking. For me, it is a way of meditating. However, cooking is not my only life mission. I cook and eat healthy to have energy to pursue all my passions. I don’t spend more time than necessary in the kitchen – usually maximum 20 minutes per dish. I live actively so I don’t have time for elaborate dishes and opt for simplicity and nutrition. The majority of products that I use are vegetables and fruit available at the local market. Then, I add international elements to these local products. In part, it is because I love traveling, but it is also the effect of testing healthy restaurants during almost 4 years of my stay in London, where everything is mutli-culti, including tastes. And that’s cool, because taste really matters. Many people think that “healthy = tasteless”. And I like offering combinations of tastes that gradually transform this belief. I love sharing food. My closest friends, who are happy because of it, can confirm it. Step by step, I spread these tastes and solutions in a non-invasive way, by inspiring. I am happy to share the things that we discover when working on our projects 🙂
