People often ask me, "How do you know what to make a client? How do you make a client happy?"
A First Impression says it all…your overall interaction with a client is very important. You only have the first 7 seconds to make a strong first impression. I love to smile and make eye contact with my clients. I seek to understand by practicing active listening so that I may anticipate my client’s needs ahead of time. I decided to write about the very subject of coddling because when I prepare food…it comes from the heart! Honestly, I love spoiling my clients. I constantly talk about the different foods that I can prepare and adding those special touches at the end like finishing sauces, dips and the list goes on. I like to prepare their favorite foods in the comfort of their own home. Trained Chefs are equipped with special skill sets, like being able to prepare the beautiful dishes in all those high-end restaurants that you like! Creativity and flexibility are what our clients really want from our services…it takes just the right combination of flavors and colors that can create moods of excitement and pleasure. Pleasing your Palate is my goal and touching your heart with Amuse Bouche (little bites) is the ultimate!

Their heart-protecting monounsaturated fats are actually one of the things that make them so healthy. Eating these green guys can help lower your risk of heart disease and stroke - so go ahead and have some
Foods play a huge role in how we feel but did you know that some foods can help your anxiety? I think it is not surprising that sugar and alcohol do NOT help our anxiety or waistline but did you know that adding in yogurt, salmon, and broccoli can actually help you feel calmer?

There are so many choices on the market for alternative milk these days. Soy, almond, coconut, hemp, rice… I have tried them all, with varying degrees of success. Recently, I started a diet that is heavier in healthy fats and low in carbs, so I was looking for a milk substitute that fit macronutrient profile. I discovered one that I had not seen before at my local Gilson’s, a product called Milkadamia. Milkadamia, as the name suggests is made from the fat –rich macadamia nut. It is made in Australia from raw, sustainably harvested macadamia nuts. It has 50% more calcium than regular cow’s milk, is carrageenan free, at 5 grams fat, 1 gram carbs and 1 gram fiber per 8 oz. serving, is perfect for all my low carbs breakfast smoothies. Surprisingly, as whole macadamia nuts are often very pricy, Milkadamia is fairly un expensive, around the same price or less as some brands of almond milk. So, if you are ready to switch up your milk or nut milk game, give Milkadamia a try! If you want my smoothie recipe please comment below!
