Around this time of year, every Spring, many of us are feeling as though we should start that diet we’ve been thinking about all Winter long, or at least start eating healthier. Unfortunately, the busyness of life gets the best of us and we’re constantly struggling with ourselves on whether or not we have time to pack our healthy lunches in the morning before we head out to work. Oh, and let’s not even think about dinner and how we can make it healthier — not to mention the fact that half of us would much rather pick up something from the local fast food restaurant in town than cook after a long day at work. Of course, many of us are also learning that not only are our eating habits unhealthier than we’d like, but we are also passing along these eating habits to our immediate family members such as our children, grandchildren or spouses. It’s hard to please everyone in your household, and when it comes down to the nitty-gritty, it’s just easier to cook one large meal that you know everyone will love, or to just pick up individual fast food meals (sadly, its not always healthy).
I’ve often thought to myself, “If I could just pay someone to make a few healthy and delicious meals every week for my family and myself, it would be completely worth it and would also give me more time to spend with my family or to work on those business projects”. I was delighted to find out that this service is available and that it is just one of the many services that Petra Mercier’s Nutritional Wisdom offer’s. Petra Mercier is a Certified Integrative Nutritionist and Health Counselor as well as a Traditional Thai Yoga Massage Practitioner based in Warrenton, VA. Petra offers one-on-one nutrition counseling services as well as personal chef services, cooking and nutrition classes, gentle dietary cleanses and Traditional Thai Yoga massage.
Petra also offers her personal chef services and meal delivery combined. Petra’s meal delivery offers healthy family meals, alkalizing meals, raw living foods, weight loss diets and special diet meals (such as vegetarian, vegan, as well as gluten, soy, peanut, corn and dairy free). She even includes desserts! Petra will prepare these meals (4 dishes of 4-6 servings each 16-24 portions total) and then deliver them fresh, directly to your home (for an additional fee) or have them ready for you to pick up at her Warrenton office. Each meal is prepared in her professional kitchen using only quality ingredients (and most of the time, local and organic ingredients). All ingredients are purchased the day before or the very same day you’re scheduled for your meals!
Petra meets with all of her clients first in order to create a menu specific to you and your families dietary needs. Whether you’re a vegan or a meat lover…she can create the perfect meals for you. Once you have your healthy, gourmet meal in hand, simply follow the heating instructions and your meal will be ready in minutes. After that, enjoy time with your family, read a book, lay in the hammock or get back to work — either way, take pride in knowing that you’re eating healthier, you’re feeling more energized and relaxed from eating natural ingredients, and over all, you’re going to feel renewed!
These meals are offered weekly, bi-weekly and tri-weekly. So, if you can’t take advantage of having meals prepared every week for you, there are definitely other options. There are only a few spots available so please contact Petra Mercier at 540-905-2252 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
