Meal Prep Made Easy
Balance Food Co was an idea born from my love of food and the need for well-balanced meals that were convenient for my friends and family.
For several years, I would meal prep for myself and for my family on the weekends. Then I started meal prepping for my mom. Then I quickly started meal prepping for some of her friends, and for their elderly parents, then for more family, friends, and co-workers. Before long, I was making between 80-100 individual and family-sized meals and homemade healthy snacks every single weekend- and I loved everything about it.
The planning, shopping, prepping, preparing, and even the clean-up were all so therapeutic for me! Then when Covid hit, I decided it was time to take a huge leap of faith. It was time to move my business from my home kitchen, into a commercial kitchen. So, in April of 2021, my husband and I started building out the kitchen and the concept for the future Balance Food Co.
When thinking about the concept behind our meal prep business, I kept coming back to one main point and that is, that I don’t do diets.
For me, life truly is all about balance. I enjoy food and try to live by the 80/20 rule. 80% of the time, I eat pretty clean- which includes lean proteins, healthy fats, and lots of greens. And 20% of the time, I will moderately indulge in the rich, comfort foods and the sweets and treats that I love!
It’s not uncommon at our house for there to be beautiful wild-caught salmon and roasted vegetables in the oven… and a pan homemade buckeye brownies cooling on the counter! So basically, that’s what you’ll find on our menu, 80% healthy and 20% indulgence!
Each week you’ll find meals that are delicious, well balanced, and appropriately portioned. Our mission is to satisfy the needs of those who want the taste of healthy, homemade food- without all of the work!
