OTTAWA, ILL. (September 16, 2013) – Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating (SSHE), provider of freshly prepared weekly meal deliveries nationwide, announces the addition of full-time registered dietitian Rene Ficek to their staff. Ficek received a BS in Food & Nutrition from Southern Illinois University (Carbondale) in 2006. In 2010 she earned her Registered Dietitian and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist certifications, and became a Certified Diabetes Educator in 2012.
Ficek will be the lead nutrition expert and representative for the brand. In this capacity she oversees menu development and compliance with USDA and FDA dietary regulations. Her responsibilities also include keeping the company updated on current nutrition information, and interaction with SSHE clients by responding to questions and providing nutrition education to them.
Seattle Sutton, RN, BSN, company founder, says, “We are thrilled to have Rene on board. Her strong nutrition background paired with her excellent palate is just what we need to round out the SSHE team and to ensure and expand on the continuance of quality and excellence in the freshly prepared meals we offer to our clients. Her philosophy – ‘great food equals good health’ – aligns completely with ours.”
“Great food and good health are not mutually exclusive, in fact they work hand-in-hand,” says Ficek. SSHE meals are constantly evolving to keep menus exciting, in flavor, variety and appearance. The plans provide three meals per day, seven days per week. That translates into more than 100 unique meals on a five week rotation; no meal is repeated within the five weeks. And as food trends change and evolve, she explains, it’s important to make sure these trends are reflected in our meals.
Ficek is very excited about the recent launch of the SSHE vegetarian menu, a 1500 calorie per day meatless meal plan which gives consumers the option of traditional meals at 1200 and 2000 calories per day, or the vegetarian option. This is just one more example of how attuned the company is to their clients’ needs: they spoke, SSHE listened.
“Science-based and palate-pleasing convenience is the hallmark of SSHE meals," Sutton added. "They are on target for everyone…from those who want to eat healthfully but are just too busy to cook, to those whose goal is losing weight safely, and tastefully! Calorie and portion controlled, no guesswork, just delicious, freshly prepared food. In fact, ours is the only prepared meal plan that features fresh fruits and vegetables daily.”
