Learn About FuelGood
How We Started
FuelGood was founded in the summer of 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic by Benny Cortez and former Collegiate Athlete Vincenzo (Vinny) Caloiaro. After a 6 month global lockdown, Cortez & Caloiaro frequently crossed paths at the Los Gatos Creek Trail. These chance encounters lead to conversations about their true passion, the benefits of proper nutritional intake, and portion control. Clean, healthy, balanced eating has enhanced Cortez & Caloiaro active lifestyles. Although Benny and Vinny already had successful careers, they both felt that they had more to give in this life. A combination of their experience, the popularity of meal prep, the timing, and their desire to change lives revealed a new opportunity. It was as if fate and the universe were unknowingly at work. The trail run-ins and their conversation about what could be possible in the meal prep game turned a thought into reality and FuelGood was born.
Benny & Vinny’s goals are to share healthy eating, provide job opportunities, and give their community more time doing the things they love while maintaining a healthy lifestyle. FuelGood offers quality products including a variety of protein, carb, and veggie options which are fully customizable. FuelGood caters to all eating lifestyles and makes choosing the healthy choice consistent, convenient, and simple. You can place your order online each week, pick up, or have it delivered, and gain peace of mind knowing all of your meals are prepared in the heart of Los Gatos, California.

He feels it is his obligation to share healthy eating with the community he grew up in and does not take this lightly.
Hear From Vinny
Sports & Fitness have been an essential part of my life since the day I was born. For 29 years now I have been trying to figure out how to optimize my nutritional intake in order to be the best ME physically. With a bunch of trial and error I have finally figured it out and want to share it with as many people as possible. I want everyone to have the opportunity to be the best they can be. Healthy, tasty, nutritious food combined with portion control is the key to maximizing any dietary plan.It takes time to acquire the knowledge necessary to determine what is healthy and more time to gather and prepare your ingredients on a regular basis. FuelGood works to save your time and energy while providing high quality, mouth watering nutritious dishes for every lifestyle. Nothing we serve will set you back when it comes to your physic. Having good healthy tasting food is really a game changer and I am so excited to help others. Fuel Good is for EVERYONE. Athletes, Yogies, Adults and Kids. For me the most important thing is to get kids to learn healthy eating habits at a young age. I want kids to learn early unlike myself who was eating unhealthy food for so long. You don’t know what you don’t know and I am here to give you the formula that I have perfected through many years of trial and error. I can't begin to express how much a company like FuelGood could have changed my College and Professional Careers from a nutrition and time standpoint.
