Tips for the Holiday Season

The holiday season is approaching! Time to enjoy family, friends, some relaxation, and good food. Check out these tips to help you stay mindful and enjoy the holidays to the fullest.

  • Do a clean sweep: Think of this as spring cleaning, but winter edition. Clearing out your refrigerator and pantry will help make room for all of the holiday meals and treats.
  • Reflect: Take a moment to soak up the joyful feelings so you can fully appreciate the good company and food. Take a minute to think about how you feel before you start eating and practice some mindful eating techniques.
  • Unplug: Try eating your meals at a table with no technology – phones away and TV off. Try to take everything in, take advantage of the time with your family and friends, and savor all the flavors.
  • Prepare: If you are hosting a meal, create a menu and shopping list in advance to help coordinate and organize the cooking and prepping.
  • Take a Look: Assess all of the food options before filling your plate. Make sure all of your favorite dishes have room on your plate.
  • Appreciate Leftovers: Enjoy your holiday meal to the fullest, but don’t forget, you can enjoy it again the next day! Package up any leftover food to store in the fridge or send home with your guests. This allows you to eat to your hearts content, without feeling the need to over stuff yourself with all the yummy food.
  • Save the Best for Last: End your meal with your favorite dish. This will leave you feeling satisfied, happy, and content with your meal.

What our clients are saying

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“I just wanted to send a quick note acknowledging the wonderful food and service provided by our new vendor.  The food was delicious and the students consistently commented on how amazing everything was.  What a difference! In addition, the staff and management were so easy to deal with – very professional.  They were punctual, responsive and attentive to our needs.  Thank you again for making a positive change to the quality of life of our students.”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”
