Eating out or ordering ‘take-out’ food EVERY night is not the healthiest option for your health or weight. As much as you may enjoy the dining out, foodie experience, restaurant food is often loaded down with salt, fattening sauces, creams and heavy butter. Yes, it adds the flavors we crave, but it can also make you overweight and obese. So when was the last you were a guest in your home?
YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE IF…
You don’t want to have to “figure it all out”.
You’re eating late into the night on takeout food.
Your tired of feeling sluggish guilty after a meal.
Cooking and grocery shopping just never was your forté!
ABOUT YOUR PRIVATE CHEF MILAN
I am based out of Chicago. As a career changer working 18 years at FedEx from 1988 until 2006, my desire was to leave a hectic and very stressful career to enjoy the freedom of working for myself and empower other career-changers! During these formative years, eating on-the-go had become the normality of life for me.
By the end of my workday, I had felt completely exhausted. So, I definitely understand the frustration of having that low energy to never “finding time” to nourish yourself properly at the end of your day.
After an intensive study in holistic health and herbalism, I had a goal in 2010 to blend the knowledge of wellness with the culinary world. While receiving educational training in Chicago from the International Culinary School at the Art Institutes Chicago, my various studies included: Food Styling, Latin cuisine, French cuisine, American cuisine and healthy Mediterranean cuisine. I also gained mentorship from top Chicago executive chefs at The Chopping Block. I enjoy cooking with natural ingredients without the use of preservatives, and that are fresh spa healthy cuisines with un-processed delicious foods and customized recipes and menu plans.
My passion is serving local clientele in the Ravenswood, Downtown, South Loop, Forest Park, Oak Park and Lincoln Park neighborhoods of Chicago’s Metro vicinity including its North Shore suburbs. To give you the level of service that you deserve, I only commit to serving a small clientele each month.
