Let’s face it: food is an investment
The average family of four spends about $250 a week on groceries alone. That’s not including take-out, Saturday dinner at your favourite neighbourhood restaurant, or the lunches you bought on the go because you expected to pack leftovers from the night before.
And what about all of that time?
Most people spend at least 1-2 hours a day picking up take-out, planning meals, grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning up (many people spend much more than that.) That’s 7-14+ hours a week on food preparation.
How much is your time worth? $20/hr? $50/hr? Priceless?
Let’s face it, time is money. Say having that extra 2 hours per day is worth $20 an hour to you. That’s $40 a day, or $280 a week. When both time and groceries are added up, that’s $530 spent each week! My Sweet Beet can be less expensive than that, plus you get all of that time back in your day!
But aren’t personal chefs for actors/rockstars/Bill Gates?
The truth is, families can totally benefit from hiring a personal chef. A personal chef is not the same as a private chef (who comes to cook at your house daily), but offers a nice compromise between cooking for yourself and having someone else prepare meals for you. If you don’t have time to cook, don’t enjoy cooking, don’t know how to cook, and are tired of eating unhealthy take-out or fast-food, investing in a personal chef makes so much sense.
I can even accommodate a wide variety of tastes or requirements, like kosher-style, Paleo, or plant-based diets.
I’ve worked in kitchens long enough to know that many chefs moan and groan at the thought of creating meals tailored for special diets. But as the daughter of a parent with Celiac’s Disease, I understand first-hand how overwhelming and stressful it can feel to make dietary changes. With a great deal of empathy and compassion, I can easily prepare delicious, nutritious meals to meet your dietary restrictions and/or specifications.
Interested in working together? Here’s a few things you should know.
My services are a good match for busy, career-driven people with families who don’t have time to cook, don’t like to cook, aren’t confident in the kitchen, or would prefer to outsource meal preparation to someone else so they can focus on other areas of their life. I am also well-suited to those recovering from illness or injury, new or expectant parents, and busy urban professionals.
