#40: Myles Hopper – Mindful Eating, Values & How Small Changes Create Lasting Results with Mindful Chef Co-Founder – Your Dream Life Podcast

This episode, Kristina speaks to Myles Hopper, co-founder of the ethically-minded, healthy recipe box company Mindful Chef, whose mission is to help people lead healthier and more sustainable lives through simple recipes and ingredients sourced from local, ethical suppliers. With a wealth of knowledge on all things health, fitness, nutrition, business, and a passion for enjoying life and making a positive difference in the world, Myles shares the Mindful Chef journey with us along with plenty more inspiration.

Myles, along with his school friends Giles and Rob founded the Mindful Chef back in 2015, and they continue to make healthy eating easier for their fast growing customer-base across the UK today.

As you might imagine, the name Mindful Chef expresses everything their business hopes to be: mindful of the suppliers they use, mindful of the ingredients they include and mindful of their impact on the environment.

A wonderful example of this is their partnership with the inspirational charity, One Feeds Two’.

This partnership means that for every Mindful meal sold, they donate a school meal to a child living in poverty. And to date, they have donated over 1.5 million meals to children in need – just incredible.

Mindful Chef is also the Official Nutrition Partner to the English Institute of Sport – helping to power athletes in the build-up to major competitions.

And their Mindful Chef cookbook which was awarded the Number 1 Healthy Eating Book of 2017!

“I just love how three friends were able to create the Mindful Chef out of a simple idea, but also how they were able to build its purpose around a set of clear values which helped them not only drive the business to success, but also to spread a positive message of health, sustainability and the environment around the world.” Kristina Karlsson

“Something else I really loved is the idea that we’re so much more likely to succeed and create long-lasting changes when we break down our huge goals and dreams into smaller behavioural changes – I couldn’t agree more! So often we get overwhelmed by the size of our dreams and goals that we give up before we’ve even begun!” Kristina Karlsson
