Vege Joy Rainbow Salad

Vege Joy Rainbow Salad

 All of my dishes can be gluten-free and I use organic, non-GMO, whole-food ingredients sourced from local farms whenever possible and depending on your preference. In addition to the whole-food/plant-based, vegetarian and vegan items already on the menu I can also adapt others to suit your needs. Lower salt, low fat, low glycemic-index, or no added oil meals are all possible.

The first step is calling me for a free, personal consultation at 617-717-8092 (cell) or (802) 446-3037 (landline) so that I can learn more about your tastes, preferences and lifestyle. I will then come to your home to do a comprehensive inventory of your kitchen and a survey of your family’s dietary needs, allergies, etc.

Weekly Meal Planning & Cooking

Rates starting at $215/cook date

Meal plans are priced per cook session and vary based on the number of meals I prepare. I package dishes in glass or “green” containers in whatever portion sizes you choose. I’ll place some of your meals in the refrigerator, and some in the freezer based on your preference with instructions about how to reheat. Plans are designed to be affordable and are similar to a moderately priced restaurant.

All desserts, breakfast breads and sides (unless included with a meal) are priced individually and average $5-$30 per dish with 3-12 servings.

Roxane has been preparing meals for me for a few years and this has led me to better health and eating habits. I’m always amazed at her her creativity with food. She has made the most delicious brownies and it is a surprise they are made from black beans. Just recently she made almond bread which was loaded with enough nuts and seeds to appease the most "granola loving" taste. That’s what I like, but then she went above and beyond and made a cacao hemp spread for it which, in combination with the bread, was so irresistible… well, I ate it all. 

Then there are the mushrooms. I didn’t grow up eating mushrooms but Roxane knows which ones to buy and what to make out of them. Once she served big, robust mushrooms grilled and served in buns like hamburgers and they were amazing! I had no idea. Another time it was something called "Hen of the Woods" she made into a stroganoff sort of dish that was filling, had wonderful flavor and a hearty texture. Yes, I always feel lucky to be eating Roxane’s food!
