Meal Delivery & Personal Chefs. It’s your first day back to work after four months of maternity leave and your husband calls you around 3 o’clock asking what’s for dinner. Don’t panic or scream. Take a deep breathe and go hire a family chef or find a meal delivery service pronto.

Meal Delivery

Never worry about preparing breakfast, lunch or dinner ever again.  There are a myriad of meal delivery options available today that are tailored to meet the needs of families and busy professionals.  If you are trying to lose those last 5 (or 25) pounds or if you are battling specific health issues, you may want to check out the offerings tailored to specific diet plans.  Ask your doctor if one of these meal plans is a good fit for you and your dietary restrictions.

Destination Dinners – Not quite complete meal delivery, but a very close second.  Check out these recipe kits from around the globe.  “Each kit beautifully displays the pre-measured hard to find spices, sauces and dried items as well as step-by-step instructions, a shopping list for fresh ingredients and fun facts and trivia about the destination you are ‘traveling’ to.”

Good Taste’s Mac & Cheese of the Month Club – I am a total sucker for really good, really rich, really cheesy mac & cheese – a decadent treat like this once a month can’t really hurt you can it?

Personal/ Family Chefs

A personal chef can come to your home to prepare your family’s meals. You can also pay them to serve the meal and clean up afterwards. This is obviously the most expensive option. Another alternative is to have a chef prepare a week’s worth of meals for your family that you can freeze or refrigerate.  Here are a few resources to get you started on your search.
