NYC Personal Chef Service
Good food is medicine, and as a personal chef and holistic health coach, I’m excited to share my passion for healthy cooking with you.
Eating whole foods gives you energy to do the things you want to do. Using organic vegetables, healthy fats and high-quality protein from a good source is where we’ll start.
Working with the seasons, menus will be created around your food preferences; paleo, gluten-free, Mediterranean, anti-inflammatory, vegetarian, whatever it may be.
The Power of Real Food
- Fruit and vegetables are powerful antioxidants to keep those free radicals under control
- Eating whole foods provides you with essential fats for your cells. Your brain is 60% fat!
- Eating whole foods helps to regulate your cholesterol and keep lots of chronic diseases away like diabetes
- We need fiber to keep things moving. Water too! Complex carbohydrates in vegetables will provide that
