Carli the founder. Few fitness fans would turn a bugbear about the lack steamed broccoli in London into a burgeoning business idea – but Carli Wheatley has done just that.

The X personal trainer faced a daily dilemma of wanting to buy simple, fresh veggies to fuel her 15-hour days, but there was no outlet to dish up the food in its most basic cooked form.

Coupled with a passion for nutrition and a drive to help others achieve their body aims she set up nutrition shake brand Protein Haus in a snazzy hut outside Canary Wharf Tube. the budding entrepreneur expanded her fitness food empire to a unit in the heart of Canary Wharf Mall with business partners red & paul.

Carli insists her offering is simple, yet it is treading new ground in London.

“Our ethos is to cater for every diet known to man or woman,” she said.

“Whether that’s paleo, low carb, Keto, vegan, vegetarian, high kcal, even if you are following lighter life to WeightWatchers, we say yes, anything to do with helping you follow your diet. that’s our goal.

“If you’ve got a specific aim, but you don’t have time to prepare the food, we help you to be able to get out of the house and follow your diet.

“It’s different – no else is doing anything like it in London eateries.

“There’s loads of what I call fake health foods – they’re branded healthy because there are healthy things in it – but they are high in calories! Which means say goodbye to lean results

“Normally people that run businesses are business people, not fitness people, they don’t understand it.

“But they will have to soon because the customers are demanding it.

“We’re on the cusp of that at the moment which is very exciting.

So in addition to prepared breakfast lunch/dinners like chicken,brown rice, broccoli/ egg white omelettes, and protein overnight soaked oats, we have the signature thick Lean PB and Nutrient packed green shakes, expect everything from Bounty-inspired bars, low carb protein cheescakes, healthy pre workout slush puppies, and plenty of vegan options and community events.

All the food has a shelf life of one to two days and shakes can be made to match specific requirements on the spot.

Those counting calories can clue up on all the nutritional information inside the goodies.

And sweet treats such as Carrot cake come in at less than 200.

“I’m not trying to push a diet on anyone – it’s us helping you, there is no other focus,” she added.

“I think there’s a place for everyone – so for when you’re wanting to eat a burger, and when you’re wanting to eat lean .

“It’s about fitting in and catering for needs.

“We will allow you to get the results in your fitness and workout plans and people will be surprised how nice brown rice and broccoli is, and how filling an energising it is.

“And it’s OK to come to us go ‘what the hell do I have?’

“We’re here to help you, that’s important, and we want people to ask us stuff. Ask me my email is below.

“I’ve been into personal training and nutrition since I was 17 – anyone starting on a journey and starting to learn I can assure you, you are in good hands, it would be hard to match the knowledge and passion I have.

“It’s rare to have an opportunity to run a business with that passion.”

Chief administrative officer at Canary Wharf Group Camille Waxer tucked into her Strawberry Warrior shake and added: “She’s our star of the year.”
