Currently training for the 2016 Olympics as a lightweight rower, Lindsay is permanently based in London, Ontario and loves to use her passion for cooking to create new and exciting dishes for herself and her family and friends. Lindsay’s healthy cooking not only fuels her body for the intense training she undergoes daily, but also helps her to maintain her weight throughout the year. Lindsay has teamed up with NutritionRx to extend her passion and knowledge to others, to help them achieve their health and weight loss goals by eating delicious and nutrient-rich foods. She fully believes that healthy meals do not have to sacrifice flavour, and that you can be just as happy eating something that is really great for your body, as you are eating pre-packaged or convenience foods that many of us have become reliant on. Like Jennifer, Lindsay believes a little planning goes a long way to support healthy eating, and as NutritionRx’s culinary expert, she is here to lend support in your own kitchen to help you batch cook your own nutritious meals and snacks. Lindsay is also happy to pre-cook and drop off fresh, seasonal, local dishes that are packed with taste and nutrition for those who need some extra assistance eating well when time is limited.
Lindsay’s cooking services currently include:
MEAL DELIVERY SERVICE: Let Lindsay do the grocery shopping, food prep, and delivery of delicious meals that fit with your clean eating goals. Two weeks’ worth of pre-prepared fresh meals will be delivered to your door, with meals rotating by season to feature what is fresh and local. Available for pickup or drop-off, Lindsay can make your busy schedule easier by providing quick and easy access to healthy dinners that are ready to go when you get home from work. Contact Lindsay by email for up-to-date seasonal meal options and price list.
COOKING LESSONS & IN-HOME BATCH MEAL PREP: Lindsay is also offering in-home or office cooking lessons, where under a chef’s guidance you will make several healthy dishes together to increase comfort with kitchen basics and learn how batch cooking will save you time and money in your busy work week. Lindsay will instruct you on basic culinary skills, including hands-on knife skills training, caramelizing, browning, deglazing, blanching, roasting, and sautéing. Cooking lessons are offered for $25/hour plus food costs. She will do all the grocery shopping in advance, and is open to suggestion if you have certain meals or foods that you would like to learn how to prepare.
