Of all the questions listeners ask me, “How do you do it all” is one of the most popular. My answer is always pretty straightforward … I don’t! That’s why I’m so grateful to have Melissa Hayes and Amber Lewis, the founders of The Good Kitchen, on the show today.
What is The Good Kitchen, you ask? To sum it up: my best friend on a hectic day!
Fast Food, Good Kitchen Style
Melissa and Amber have an awesome story about how they turned their passion for good food into an incredible family-owned company that brings fully prepared Paleo-style meals right to your door. I use them myself and their meals are as good as homemade!
What makes Good Kitchen even better is how they meticulously source their proteins and produce from farms doing things the “right” way … giving animals access to pasture and using practices that protect the environment.
Even if you cook all of your own food, you’ll love this episode as you learn about responsible food sourcing and sustainable food systems. People like Melissa and Amber are changing our food future for the better, and I’m all about doing all I can to help!
