Fall in Love With Healthy Eating

Work with Cheryl Englebretson, Twin Cities Personal Chef and Culinary Nutrition Expert, to learn how to cook easy and nutritious whole food recipes that the whole family will love.

Healthy Meals Made Easy

Does your busy schedule keep you from cooking healthy meals for your family? Do you have the best of intentions, but find yourself ordering takeout because you have no idea what to cook or you just can’t deal with a trip to the grocery store? Or maybe someone in your family has recently been told they need to eat differently, so you’re trying to cook new recipes that your family won’t even try?

Changing how we eat can be hard

Food is central to every culture and celebration, making changing your family’s diet really hard. Trying new recipes and using unfamiliar ingredients without success can be so discouraging. Planning a week’s worth of meals, shopping for the ingredients and cooking the meals can be daunting, especially when personal preference or dietary requirements make your standbys obsolete. It can feel like a full-time job to discern which ingredients contain gluten or sugar or nuts!

You don’t have to go it alone

The good news is that you don’t have to go it alone. A personal chef makes eating healthy at home as simple as ordering takeout. (Yes, really!) I can help you plan your menus, shop for groceries and prep your meals, making it easy for you to come home and put dinner on the table or cook your meals so that all you have to do is reheat them when you get home! I’d love to help you adapt a favorite family recipe so that it meets your new dietary requirements or simply make it healthier without sacrificing flavor.

Or maybe you’re ready to take your kitchen skills to the next level with some personalized online or in-person cooking classes. I can teach you to cook gluten-free, nut-free and low sugar meals your family will love!
