Personal Chef Services
Holistic Performance will work closely with you to create healthier versions of foods that you currently eat and love, while introducing new ingredients and preparation methods that will maximize health benefits without sacrificing flavor. We prepare all meals to ensure maximal nutrient retention and
prevent the formation of advanced glycated end products by using proper cooking temperatures and oils. Ingredients are organic, of highest quality, and are carefully selected to create customized meals that are delicious and loaded with anti-inflammatory compounds and antioxidants. Meals can be created in your kitchen or prepared and delivered to your home 1-2 times/week, labeled with reheat instructions.
For the business traveler, vacationer or athlete on a road trip, Holistic Performance can recommend local restaurants and consult with them in advance to ensure the meals you eat while on the road are of high quality and nutritional value.
