I had my first baby in April last year and I found myself spending hours upon hours feeding, settling and cleaning up after a reflux-colic baby. I do not enjoy cooking so I definitely didn’t have the time or motivation to start preparing dinner at 8pm for my husband and I.
I found Belinda and The Organic Cook while researching home catering and loved that Belinda was able to offer a post natal home cooking service. She would prepare a suitable menu (working with my tastes and the diet I was on whilst breastfeeding), shop for the ingredients and cook all meals in my home. They were all packaged up and put in the freezer ready to be heated each night.
To begin with I expected to book Belinda for a couple of cooking days and once I was settled into motherhood and back in control I would be able to prepare our meals again. But having ‘Belinda Meals’ (as my husband and I call them) ready to go each night saves my family time, allows me to spend more time with my daughter during the day and gives us a variety of healthy meals to enjoy without me having to slave away in the kitchen.
My Husband even claims he is a good cook when it is his turn to heat up our dinner!
Belinda makes the whole experience easy and is now a regular visitor in my home. We have a chat about ‘mummy things’ and ‘work things’ and she really shows an interest in my family. She creates new menus with each visit and treats my kitchen as she would her own – leaving it clean and tidy and looking after my cooking instruments.
I would definitely recommend Belinda and The Organic Cook to anyone who is time poor, needing help with diet and nutrition or just doesn’t enjoy cooking themselves.
