Take Back Your Time!

Updated: Feb 15, 2018

It's Tuesday evening. You worked all day at your 9-5 (which is more like an 8-6 these days). You're passing every drive thru imaginable on the way home and the radio is talking about kale (again), but you can barely hear it over your stomach growling. The kids are home from activities (they've texted you and they're starving). You definitely forgot to ask Alexa to remind you to take the chicken out of the freezer so that's awesome too. Ohh this is how pizza chains can afford to sponsor NASCAR.

So this, or some version of it, has been all of us at one point or another. And it's not our fault! It can be hard to find the time to do it all. Trying to do the right thing can add up, and it's not just the time in front of the hot stove. Consider 1 hour spent planning what to eat, 1-2 hours spent traveling to/from the grocery store, walking aisles, and standing in line, 7-8 hours preparing meals on weeknights and weekends (valuable time!), and 2-3 hours cleaning up. This is 11-14 hours of time every week that could be spent with your loved ones or on enjoying your passion project.

Imagine this scenario instead.

It's Tuesday evening. Your personal chef was over yesterday and cooked 4 portions each of 5 different meals. The whole family enjoyed the salmon last night. A blueberry broccoli spinach salad at lunch hit the spot, but it's definitely dinner time when you get home. Tonight you're craving spice and your stomach gets excited thinking about the jerk chicken thighs and Jamaican rice packaged in your fridge ready to heat and eat. Your daughters are trying the pescatarian lifestyle so you had the chef make a vegan curry. They texted you already saying how it was so good and you have to try it. Maybe tomorrow. Then again, you did just catch something on the radio that's got you scheming on the coconut kale stir-fry in the fridge right next to the chicken..

Does this sound too good to be true? It's not! This can easily be your reality when you enlist the services of a personal chef. Coming home to restaurant quality cooking can be the norm for you and your family. Nobody in the house wants to eat the same thing on the same night? No problem. Meals are portioned how you request so every mouth can be happy. Want to bring the family together for burrito night? Perfect. They're rolled and ready to go. You just gather the troops. Eating low carb by doctor's orders? No sweat, let your handle the meal planning so you can stay within the lines. Soups in the winter, salads in the summer, grab-and-go breakfast sandwiches. All of this while your kitchen stays clean!

I'm not a believer in this just because I am a personal chef. I'm a personal chef because I believe in this! This no-compromise philosophy where families aren't spending hours shopping and cleaning, but can enjoy their time both together and apart, is something that I feel strongly about. If I can help families reclaim their time, then I'm serving my purpose.

Everybody eats -- enjoy it!
