The Holistic Kitchen Launches Expanded Services
Mesa, Arizona. September 14, 2009. The Holistic Kitchen, a personal chef service offering healthy meals for cancer patients in the East Valley, is expanding to help meet the needs of people with special dietary concerns.
Founded in 2008 by Nancy Banner, The Holistic Kitchen’s goal was to help individuals understand the relationship between a diet of wholesome nourishment and physical and emotional well-being. Chef Banner focused on teaching patients undergoing or recovering from cancer treatment how to nourish themselves and use food to rebuild strength and immunity.
The Holistic Kitchen currently offers training and meal service for cancer patients across the Valley as well as others who are adapting to or living with special or restrictive diets. Customized menus can be prepared for those with a wide range of needs, including gluten-free, dairy-free and/or sugar-free diets, multiple food allergies, candida/fibromyalgia and vegan/vegetarian/living food diets.
“I am passionate about helping the critically ill find comfort and healthy nourishment in food due to the staggering numbers that lose their battle to malnutrition, not their disease! We are expanding to include other types of special diets because trying to change one’s eating habits can be an overwhelming process. Our service manages the details, makes the appropriate nutrition taste good and gives the individual an opportunity to develop their palate to a new way of eating.”
A detailed questionnaire is used to tailor meals to each client’s unique needs. A chef from The Holistic Kitchen the custom designs a menu, does the grocery shopping, prepares meals in the client’s kitchen, packages them with heating instructions and cleans up. Weekly, monthly and “as needed” plans are available.
Chef Banner is a 1995 graduate of the Scottsdale Culinary Institute. She has devoted most of her life to the study of nutrition and how it can be used to promote optimal health. She is formalizing her studies in Nutritional Counseling with the Global College of Natural Medicine.
Chef Banner is assisted by Sandy Liberman, a recent graduate of the Arizona Culinary Institute, whose focus was nutrition and special diets.
