WHO NEEDS A PERSONAL CHEF SERVICE?
Lots of people! Whether you’re a professional on the go or a busy stay at home mom, the time and cost taken by driving to the store, shopping for groceries, and cooking a nutritious meal are high! I can save you the time and money by doing your shopping and cooking in your own kitchen. No need to fill up the gas tank, no throwing away unused produce, and more time spent doing the things that you want to do!
IS IT AFFORDABLE?
Yes! In addition to the time and money saved by my service, you will be saving money by avoiding fast food (which costs you more than just money, your health is on the line here, too!) and gas-guzzling drives to the store. If you would rather eat freshly prepared, organic meals in your home than feed your family chicken nuggets and french fries, a personal chef is right for you. Contrary to popular belief, it is not more expensive to eat healthy, plant-based foods, especially when seasonal produce is used. For each four-serving meal, the cost is about the same as going out to eat in a nice restaurant, except you don’t have to drive or tip!
A vegan lifestyle is not only good for you and the animals, it’s good for the planet too! The American Dietetic Association has stated that ‘appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases’ and David Brubaker, PhD, from the Center for a Livable Future at Johns Hopkins University states that ‘the way that we breed animals for food is a threat to the planet. It pollutes our environment while consuming huge amounts of water, grain, petroleum, pesticides and drugs. The results are disastrous.’ I would be happy to discuss any questions you may have about veganism during our initial consultation.
No problem! I’m happy to cook gluten free meals for you!
So how does this all work?
Once you have requested my personal chef service, I will come to your home, at your convenience, for a little chat. This first meeting is free of charge, and is designed to answer any questions you may have and also let me get to know what your needs are. Once we have discussed your dietary needs or desires, such as any allergies (nuts, soy, gluten, etc.) and how often you would like the service, I will take a quick tour of your kitchen to see what equipment I need to bring with me on the cook date. If you decide to hire me, I will collect a grocery fee at that time so that I can be ready to go shopping. I will then email you with a sample menu that you will approve or suggest changes to, and we will designate a day for cooking.
