Healthy Food Ready to Eat! Chef and Author Lindsay S. Nixon is starting a healthy and affordable Personal Chef service in NYC.
Healthy Food Ready to Eat
Chef and author Lindsay S. Nixon wants to make eating healthy effortless by preparing plant-based meals that are made fresh and delivered to your door -- all at an affordable price! Meal Revolution is your personal chef in Manhattan.
The goal of this project is to see if New Yorkers want this kind of a service. Meals will be made fresh, locally and cost roughly $8-12 per entree -- less than what you'd pay to eat out.
How it works:
Pre-purchased meals through Kickstarter will be prepared and delivered one week in July. The exact week is to be determined, but if it conflicts with your schedule, we will give you a credit or prepare and deliver your meals another week. If Kickstarter and the trial week are successful, we will launch this business in August.
Each week an array of new meals, muffins, sides and desserts will be available for purchase "a la carte" on our website with a minimum order requirement of $50. You will customize your selections, place your order and have a week's worth of meals delivered to your home or office in Manhattan (with plans to expand to other boroughs).
How are we going to use the money?
The money raised through Kickstarter will go toward renting commercial kitchen space, buying packaging, and covering the cost of ingredients for your meals (pledge rewards).
Special Diets, too!
All of the meals during our trial week will be gluten-free.
We also plan to offer sugar-free, gluten-free, soy-free, oil-free, nut-free and vegan options every week. We will also take care to list every ingredient, including spices, by name, along with the nutritional information for each item. We have rare allergies and special dietary needs, so we know what a challenge both can be!
Additionally, all of our recipes will be egg-free and dairy-free, and made from the best ingredients possible. We are committed to using local, sustainable, fair-trade and organic products whenever possible.
*Manhattan delivery is currently limited to from the top of Central Park down to Houston St. (approximately the following zipcodes: 10001, 10003, 10009, 10010, 10011, 10012, 10014, 10016, 10017, 10018, 10019, 10020, 10021, 10022, 10023, 10024, 10025, 10028, 10029, 10036, 10065, 10075, 10128).
You will request GF after the project is completed. Once we meet our goal, Kickstarter will allow us to contact you directly. At that time we'll send out an email seeing who needs GF. Or you can send an email now letting us know: email@example.com
Q: "I don't live in Manhattan, but my daughter does. Can you deliver the meals to her and I'll pay?"
Yes-- just send your daughters name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org
