About Nourish by Medcan

Even though nutritional knowledge has advanced, company catering hasn’t. We know that plant proteins are good, and sugars are bad, but companies keep serving the same high fat pizzas and bland sandwiches because that’s the routine. Until now. Combining the culinary flair of Executive Chef Jason Smidt and the nutritional expertise of Registered Dietitian Leslie Beck, Nourish by Medcan serves up carefully-crafted meals you can trust – without compromising taste.

"As a co-creator of Nourish by Medcan, I give my stamp of approval to its menu,” says Leslie Beck, Director of Food and Nutrition at Medcan, a registered dietitian who has spent her career helping Canadians achieve their diet-related health goals. She’s a best-selling author, Globe and Mail columnist and television and radio personality.. “The principles of our food philosophy, which leverages elements of the well-researched Mediterranean diet, provide guidance for our delicious menu creations.”
