Introducing customized meal planning
September 6, 2012 § Leave a comment
Need help planning healthy meals for your family? Komi Organics is now offering one-on-one sessions which will help you organize your family’s meals and shopping schedule, for reduced stress and increased health and well being. A session will result in a personalized monthly meal plan which I will develop along with the client. After scheduling a convenient meeting time in your home (or over the phone if desired), we will discuss the individualized needs of your family (how much preparation time is available, taste preferences, size of family, ages, allergies, financial concerns and goals like weight loss). I will then prepare a meal plan for the entire month, with your input along the way and final approval. Meal plans will also include specific recipes, and instructions. Also included will be a grocery purchasing schedule, so that the meal plan can be carried out with the least amount of time spent thinking about details during the month. A grocery purchasing schedule will also insure that fresh produce is bought at the appropriate times, decreasing waste due to spoilage. Each client will also be given several lists to use as resources for future meal planning, making a session even more valuable. A session can really help diversify your families diet-it is so easy to get stuck in a rut, and forget about all the delicious ways to optimize health and take advantage foods that are available. A session can also be a great gift for other busy families-one that can improve household efficiency and health year round! Please feel free to call or email with any questions.
