Cooking Services and Ingredient Preparation

As of October 1, 2017, this service is unavailable through Starkel Nutrition. As an alternative, we recommend cooking services provided by The Secret Ingredient. The Secret Ingredient is not affiliated with Starkel Nutrition; therefore its services and fees may vary from what is described below.

Our experienced cooks are available to help make the challenge of cooking meals more manageable—even enjoyable. Using our cooking services are great options for those who follow complex dietary guidelines like a low-FODMAP diet, who have food sensitivities that make meal planning difficult, or other health conditions like diabetes, celiac or cardiovascular diseases. They are also good options for busy families, individuals who don’t want to invest the time of cooking single-serving meals for themselves, those who travel frequently, and also for people who prefer to spend their free time doing things besides cooking.

We will develop a weekly menu tailored to your preferences and dietary restrictions and, if desired, do your grocery shopping for ingredients. If you like to cook, but dislike preparing the ingredients, we can do all the ingredient preparation for you like mincing, slicing, chopping, and measuring so all you have to do is cook with the assembled ingredients. Cooking is conducted on-site, in your home—no need to worry about pick-up or delivery—by trained cooks who have been vetted to ensure safety and security while in your home. Meals are stored in your refrigerator and/or freezer and your kitchen is tidied up after cooking.


Services are available individually or as a custom package based on your needs.
