"Growing up in a home where family and love grew more and more everyday around the table put me where I am today. As a little girl, I sat and watched my mother and Granny teach me the basics of cooking. My mother would take me to Farmers' Markets, buying fresh, local, seasonal produce to prepare that evening. Today, I still stand by these rules when I prepare meals for athletes and families. Healing from the inside out." ~Chef Sarah
A few of my favorite creations include:
"What a treat when Chef Sarah rolls in with all of her ingredients ready to be made into scrumptious meals or snacks or salads or whatever we have agreed upon for that particular session. I do cook some things but what fun is that?!! So nice to know that I can wake up to some homemade Cinnamon Vanilla Millet porridge or Maple Granola with cranberries waiting in the frig for me; or, know that I have steak tacos as a lunch or dinner option. What is also a bonus is that I have found that if I avoid gluten, soy, some dairy, certain vegetables and spices, although not "allergic" to them according to my tests, I feel better. Hence, Chef Sarah will make awesome recommendations to accommodate me, and I know EXACTLY what is in the recipe. It is quite challenging to find a salad dressing not made with soybean oil!! WHE is also flexible on scheduling which is helpful.” - Rachel L.
