Our story started back in 2018, with one man, our founder and England rugby legend, Jonny Wilkinson. Below he takes us on a journey of where it all began.
No.1 Living all started when my wife was training to become a nutritionist and I was on my own mental health journey. We both discovered the role of bacteria in the gut and the idea of fermenting foods.
This discovery led us to brewing our own kombucha at home after realising the role that living foods could play, not just in our gut, but in our body and mind as a whole.
The living diet is such an exciting subject, and it’s particularly special to me because it’s such a change from how I used to look at diet and health. Back when I was playing competitively, diet was all about numbers and fuelling my body like a machine. There was no understanding of how to work with the body or any respect for its incredible intelligence and beauty, as a living thing. What I eat and how I eat has all changed to become a far more engaged and holistic experience.
After recognising how much this change in perspective had helped me, I really wanted to share my passion with others, and that’s when No.1 Living was born. With No.1 Living, I hope to try and reveal the potential in everyone to enjoy incredible experiences of life, through health and wellbeing and not at the cost of it. How we eat, drink and feel is all connected and improving the quality of what we put into our body will result in us getting more out of life and how we live it.
