Chez Drea provides delicious and healthy meals using the best local and seasonal organic ingredients, not only to help my clients create a nourishing balanced and sustained diet, but also to support local farmers. We live in a region similar to that of the Mediterranean, and should be eating a diet rich in olive oil, nuts, whole grains, fish, fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables. The Mediterranean diet emphasizes healthy fats and is known specifically to provide food for a strong heart and healthy brain. I work closely with my clients to help them achieve their individual health goals. I introduce a variety of food into their diet and pride myself on the fact that I’m able to get my clients to eat the most nutrient dense vegetables on the planet, foods they’d sworn they couldn’t eat. As you begin to cut out processed foods your body’s natural instincts return and cravings for sugars and white flour disappear.

Choosing to eat organic is a choice for the health of our body and immune system, the health of our family, our soil and our planet. Organic food has been grown without harmful chemicals such as fertilizers, growth hormones or antibiotics.

I can accommodate any diet, vegetarian, gluten-free, paleo, etc.

I very much look forward to serving you.

"Andrea is a talented chef! Our family has enjoyed the delicious new dishes she's prepared for us. What's most amazing is that I've discovered that I enjoy eating vegetables like kale and many kinds of squash that I didn't know how to prepare, and hadn't been eating before. Even though I thought I was an adventurous eater, after working with Andrea I'm eating more kinds of vegetables and foods like bison that I didn't think I liked before, and am now enjoying them." ~ Nina Price, M.B.A., L.Ac.
