Trying a New Healthy Diet? Don’t Cancel Your Meal Service!by Michael Wards
Picture this: You’ve been reading a lot about healthy diets. You’ve decided you want to give the Paleo Diet a try. But you’ve really been enjoying the homemade enchiladas, rice pilaf and pasta dishes your personal chef has been making lately. Plus, you’re not sure how your chef would feel about accommodating such a drastic menu change. Restaurants always make you feel like such a pain for requesting the gluten-free menu. And you suspect you’ll get the same reaction if you ask your personal chef to adjust.
Should you cancel your meal service? Would it be better just to tough out the new diet on your own?
Many people don’t realize just how versatile a personal chef’s menu can be. More often than not, learning to accommodate special healthy diets is a major component of a chef’s culinary training. Whether you’re vegan/vegetarian, Keto, dairy-free/gluten-free, or anything else, all it takes is an email to your chef to let him/her know about your dietary changes. Even if you have newly discovered food sensitivities and think your diet will be too finicky, trust us—we can handle it.
The bottom line? You shouldn’t have to compromise your personal chef service when you need the support the most!
The luxury of having a personal chef is having your meals customized to your particular needs and tastes. It’s not like going to a restaurant and changing the menu.
A personal chef’s menu is created specifically with you in mind—so let them know how you want to customize it. For example, your chef could substitute cauliflower “rice” for regular rice, or make zucchini noodles instead of pasta. If you want to go vegan, your chef could include dairy-free cashew cheese or buffalo seitan wings on the menu. You may be surprised at how many new and exciting dishes your chef can make to help you stick to your healthy diet.
