"Lisa was a unique client in that, rather than making food for herself, she asked me to help her make food for her parents. During each virtual meal prep session I guided her through how to prep seven days worth of dinners that she then froze and delivered to her parents once a week. In order to keep things simple and stress free, we took advantage of some precooked meats and frozen vegetables, but also cooked a few things from scratch. Each week had one crock pot freezer meal so her mom could just dump the prepped ingredients in the crock pot in the morning and have a delicious hot meal ready in time for dinner!"
Sarah Henderson, Founder
"When I discovered Sarah/Food Forethought, I was in a state of extreme overwhelm trying to juggle a full-time job, family, and the new realities of navigating a caregiver role for my parents during a Pandemic.
Sarah enthusiastically rose to the challenge and helped plan 3 weeks of delicious meals for my folks' specific situation, including our criteria of virtually all freezer meals with minimal effort *and* delicious! She planned everything meticulously down to the order of the grocery lists, orchestration of meal prep sessions & cooking tips over video conference, and instructions for serving. I can't express enough what a huge weight has been lifted with Sarah's help, and the peace of mind being able to provide for my folks as they age in place. I consider Sarah a very important part of my folks' "care team"!
I've had a couple weeks doing this on my own now with what I've learned, and thanks to Sarah's guidance I've developed a "meal prep mindset" - I'm doubling recipes, using ingredients for multiple meals, using up what I already have, and the bonus is that I'm able to now meal prep for myself and my folks at the same time with great success. The more I practice, the easier it becomes.
I would highly recommend Sarah's service if you're needing extra help with organizing meals for yourself, aging family, sick friends, new parents, etc.!"
