Fuelling our Elite Student-Athletes with Meals to Go 

Our focus each day is on choosing the right combination of amino acids (protein), quality carbohydrates and healthy fats to improve performance and stimulate better recovery. For us, variety is key! We always try to offer new sources of protein, carbohydrates, vegetables and fats. We believe that if you eat the same thing every day your body could be lacking all the essential nutrients that come from a variety of foods. We also get a lot of joy from introducing new foods to our student athletes!  

Homework and practice got you tight on time? No chance to get home for dinner? We’ve got you covered! It just takes a little pre-planning on your part; check your calendar and order dinner in advance on the days you need it, pick it up after school and fuel up for the night!  

Pre or Post Game Meals & Snacks for Teams

When preparing meals for teams we plan carefully to balance the components, portions, and of course timing. When delivering your team’s order or upon pick-up, we’ll always try to provide insight into the decisions we make, so you can feel confident in yours.

Game & Tournament Fuel Packages + Nutrition Programs for Teams
Each individual is different with when they prefer to have a meal before a game, workout or practice. Typically, it is best to have a larger meal 3-4 hours before a game and a pre-game snack 1 to 2 hours before competition. This can be the same with practices and workouts. We can help athletes and their teams work within any time constraints by providing the right types of fuel for their unique situation.

Please contact food@everestacademy.com for more information.

It is our passion to use seasonal nutrition and source local foods when fuelling our elite student athletes, and their families. We’re extending the lunch program to families so they can take portions home to enjoy later in the week. 

Available upon request. Please contact food@everestacademy.com for more information.

andy muto

Wellness Chef Andy Muto’s relationship with food is a 35-year love story. His passion for fresh, simple, and natural food has been the cornerstone of his career; one that he’s shared with people from every walk of life. Based in Toronto and extending to Northern Ontario, across Canada, and into the US. His extensive personal experience as a caregiver for a family member has refined the undisputable correlation between food and the body; more specifically how food supports performance and nourishes recovery. 

Andy’s Smart Eating classes are intimate and interactive food demonstrations designed to inspire cooking for wellness by simplifying valuable information into practical recipes that people can use every day. Eating smart, balanced and delicious meals doesn’t have to be a complicated. 

Notably, Andy has spent 10 years alongside NHL alumni and Wellness Mentor Gary Roberts at his High-Performance Program, feeding and educating many of the NHL’s top athletes including Connor McDavid, Mark Scheifle, Matthew & Brady Tkachuk, Mike Smith & Stanley Cup Champions Steven Stamkos, Robert Thomas & Phil Kessel.  

Andy’s work and reputation have also connected him with Pro athletes from the Toronto FC and the NBA, namely NBA Champions, the Cleveland Cavaliers. He has also supported local athletes from the Women’s Canadian Olympic Basketball Team, Ontario Women’s Hockey Association, Minor Hockey Leagues, Community Basketball and Marathon Runners. 

Andy continues to uncover foods and their historical connection to people’s wellness as individuals and communities…knowing the lessons learned from the past can help us live and feel our very best on the ice, field, court, or in the arena of life.
