About Fundamental Meal

Simply put, Fundamental Meal is a high-quality, plant-based powder that can be easily blended with water or plant-based milk to make a drinkable meal that provides your body with a balance of all essential nutrients.

Fundamental Meal has a delicious malt chocolate flavour with a subtle sweetness and a luxuriously smooth texture.

The intensity of the flavour and thickness can be adjusted by either increasing or decreasing the water or m*lk content.

Fundamental Meal can be used by anyone who is interested in incorporating nutritious meals into their everyday lifestyle.

Many people find the preparation required for their daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner to be very time consuming, and will reach for "convenient" options that do not prioritize health, resulting in you feeling sluggish or fatigued after consuming.

Our product supports your body's physiology by providing complete and balanced nutrition with high-quality ingredients, helping you feel satiated, energized and uplifted.

Yes, Fundamental Meal is designed to be eaten as your breakfast, lunch, or dinner. One serving is formulated to be nutritionally complete and satiating, however, you can adjust the serving portions to your liking.

If you would like to use the product as a nutritious snack instead, simply split the serving volume in half to 100 ml and adjust the amount of liquid added accordingly.

Though we encourage the practice of eating Fundamental Meals everyday, we do not believe all meals should be replaced and that other meals, experiential ones, serve an important role in our lives.

The general concept of a fundamental meal is one that offers high nutritional density in a simple format that allows for easy consumption, is generally more efficient, and has less associated waste. Though these meals are humble, they are immensely satiating and can be eaten everyday as they are well balanced.

An experiential meal is on the other end of the spectrum. It requires more time and resources to prepare, may or may not be as nutritious, but offers more social value. An experiential meal maybe represented as a celebratory feast, going for ice cream on a hot summer's day, or simply preparing a Sunday dinner as a reason to sit down with family after a busy week.

We believe in both forms of eating.

Fundamental Meal is proudly made in Toronto, Canada. We primarily source our ingredients from North America, with the exception of cocoa that is certified as sustainable and fair trade.

Generally speaking, plant-based food produces lower carbon emissions versus food containing meat or dairy over its lifecycle.

Since Fundamental Meal is naturally less perishable, it contributes less food waste than many ingredients found in your fridge.

Fundamental Meal is made in small batches and primarily sold directly to our customers, meaning we do not over produce and have limited waste caused by unsold inventory.
