Something I’ve Noticed is a Game-Changer For Many of My Clients is: Meal Planning!
I just spent 8 days working as a private chef at 2 back-to-back retreats. That meant shopping for, prepping, cooking, and presenting a total of 7 breakfasts, 5 lunches, 5 snacks, and 7 dinners (plus dessert and cake for two birthdays!) for dozens of hungry attendees.

Take it from me that meal planning was CRUCIAL for those events to run successfully and for everyone to stay healthy, safe, and happily fed. And what do you know? Many of the guests were thanking me because they enjoyed my cooking AND their clothes were fitting more loosely by the end of the retreats. They had experienced the magic of meal planning, and so can you!
