The Daily Life of A Health and Wellness Private Chef

Being a private chef in the health and wellness industry is a unique and rewarding career choice. It allows me to combine my passion for cooking with my commitment to helping others live a healthy lifestyle. Today, I will take you through a typical day in the life of a health and wellness private chef.

Morning Routine

My day usually starts early in the morning, as I believe in the importance of starting the day off right. After a refreshing workout or yoga session, I begin by planning the day's meals. This involves researching new recipes, sourcing fresh and organic ingredients, and creating a balanced menu that meets my clients' dietary requirements and preferences.

Meal Preparation

Once the menu is finalized, I head to the local farmers market or specialty stores to handpick the finest ingredients. Quality and freshness are key in my line of work, as I strive to provide my clients with the best possible meals. Back in the kitchen, I start prepping the ingredients, chopping vegetables, marinating meats, and preparing sauces and dressings from scratch.

Cooking and Presentation

As a private chef, I have the privilege of working in well-equipped kitchens, allowing me to unleash my creativity and culinary skills. I carefully cook each dish, paying attention to flavors, textures, and presentation. Whether it's a colorful salad, a hearty soup, or a gourmet entrée, I aim to create visually appealing and delicious meals that nourish both the body and the soul.

Client Interaction

Part of my job as a private chef is to interact with clients and understand their specific dietary needs. I regularly meet with them to discuss their preferences, allergies, and any special requirements. This allows me to tailor the menu to their individual needs and ensure their satisfaction. I also provide nutritional guidance and educate them about the benefits of the ingredients and cooking techniques used in their meals.

Clean-Up and Menu Planning

After the meals are prepared and served, I take care of the clean-up. This includes washing dishes, cleaning the kitchen, and organizing ingredients for the next day. I also take this time to reflect on the day's meals and gather feedback from clients. Their input is invaluable in improving my culinary skills and ensuring that I continue to exceed their expectations.

Continued Learning and Growth

As a health and wellness private chef, I am committed to staying up-to-date with the latest culinary trends and nutritional research. I dedicate time each day to expand my knowledge through reading cookbooks, attending workshops, and experimenting with new ingredients and techniques. This allows me to constantly evolve and offer my clients innovative and delicious meals. I belong to the USPCA and the IACP where I further educate myself to the upcoming dietary trends and food recipes which assist me in my menu preparations for you the client. 

By the end of 2023 and start of 2024, I will have received A Master Certificate in Nutrition from the prestigious AFPA allowing me to further my credentials towards being able to coach my clients and their families towards nutritional health.

Relaxation and Self-Care

While my days are filled with cooking and taking care of others, I also prioritize self-care and relaxation. I believe that a healthy and balanced lifestyle starts with taking care of oneself. Whether it's enjoying a leisurely walk, practicing meditation, or working on my ever increasing desire to grow a fresh herb garden, I make sure to carve out time for self-care to recharge and rejuvenate.


Being a health and wellness private chef is much more than just cooking. It's about creating nourishing meals, building relationships with clients, and promoting a healthy lifestyle. Each day brings new challenges and opportunities for growth, making this career truly fulfilling and rewarding.
