WHY SHOULD YOU BELIEVE THAT I CAN HELP YOU?

MY STORY......

I used to spend a lot of money on food, at restaurants and at home.  I was getting really broke!  Gradually I developed a plan so I could spend less on food and still eat healthy.  I used to believe that I could not get through each week 

I also taught my son to cook - he could chop vegetables before he could reach the kitchen counter, by standing on a stool.  He rarely eats at restaurants because he cooks for himself. We used to go grocery shopping together, every 2 weeks.  

BACKGROUND:

  •  Earned Culinary Management degree at George Brown College in Toronto Ontario Canada
  •  Earned my chefs papers at BCIT in Burnaby BC Canada
  • Cooked professionally for 10 years

I have cooked at home since forever - much to the chagrin of my father who did not always appreciate my selections.  Dinner by Mary was not always "meat, potatoes and vegetables".

TODAY:

We grow many of our vegetables. We rarely eat at restaurants. Our food bill is very small.  When my spouse and I do not want to prepare dinner, we find something easier to make, or we work together. We have a loose arrangement that when one prepares dinner, the other cleans the kitchen. We clean as we go so there is less to do after cooking. We each are responsible for our own breakfasts and lunches.

There are many other hints that I can share with you.   Come back again for more ideas. Plus we can work together to figure out how you can start cooking too.
