Hire Me!

We are bombarded these days with so many messages advising us how to eat: low carb, paleo, gluten free, low fat, low sodium. The one constant the experts seem to agree on is that eating "real food" is important. The best way to do this effectively is to cook for ourselves at home more. When you cook at home, you control the quality and cost of the ingredients, the portion size, and the amount of sodium, fat and sugar in each dish. You can start with fresh and nutritious ingredients and create a meal that tastes like restaurant food, only better for you.  Really.

For many of us, though, kitchen skills have become something to watch on the food network or admire at the restaurant of a Top Chef. And most certainly, weeknight cooking can be a chore in light of our busy schedules. However, there is no doubt that food purchased outside the home, whether fast food, packaged convenience foods, or even fine dining, will contain more calories, fat, sodium and sugar than we need on a regular basis.

There is room in most people's diets for all of the above, just not everyday or in super sized quantities. So, how to replicate the convenience of carry out and packaged, processed foods without the health (and, sometimes, budgetary) consequences?

Hire me! I will consult with you to create a custom plan for creating a home environment that is conducive to cooking satisfying, delicious and healthier dinners at home.  I will hold your hand through whatever issues you would like to surmount, including pantry organization and stocking, grocery shopping, meal planning, cooking skills and properly outfitting an organized and simple home kitchen. I can help you with new healthy recipes, cost and time saving tips and can even adapt favorite family or restaurant recipes with and for you. I can accommodate most eating styles/dietary needs and can help you follow the guidance of your nutritionist or M.D.

Maybe you'd also like your grown and almost grown kids to learn the fundamentals so that they, too, can prepare healthy and delicious food at home more efficiently and inexpensively. Or, maybe, you have parents who suddenly need to change a lifelong carry-out habit for health reasons. If your loved ones need a little hand holding in the kitchen, I can help them too.

Cooking doesn't have to be stressful and unpleasant. By learning some new cooking and planning techniques, you can take control and be in charge of what goes into your body, have some fun and, finally, enjoy nutritious and delicious food with your family and friends.
