Special Diets

Love Your Diet

Time after time we see clients who are frustrated and just plain bored with diet plans recommended by their nutritionist. I don’t blame them. When they show me the recipes and meal plan laid out to them by their dietician, it’s no wonder. A one page print out of what they can and can not eat and a few meager recipes that last all of a week or two, a month tops, isn’t going to cut it for the long term. This usually leads to meal fatigue and ultimately leads to a relapse. Let’s be honest, who’s going to be making their own bone broth? It’s a process and the stuff sold in stores is loaded with sodium and various heavy metals. For whatever the reason, food allergies and dietary ailments are becoming more and more common. Realizing you aren’t going to be able to eat the way you used to can be a sobering reality. It’s really about getting your mind around it and then coming up with a plan which can actually give a feeling of excitement. We have worked with several clients and have seen a wide range of allergies and food sensitivities, such as FODMAP, leaky gut, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and many others. We strive to create new and exciting meals that stay within the guidelines recommended by dietitians/nutritionists to help you maintain your goals and feel your best both mentally and physically.

Jeffrey is a wonderful combination of classically French trained but up to date on modern eating trends (Paleo, Keto, FODMAP, Vegan, allergies etc). Recently, I had a hip replacement and with the way we are currently eating (no gluten, dairy, soy, sugar, low carb), it was such a treat to have him help us out. Although I am now able to use the kitchen, I am having trouble letting him go! - Penny C, Hamden, CT
