cook inspiring recipes and create ease and structure around mealtime

what if you had a plan and knew what to cook and eat ahead of time? The meals were healthy, tasted like a chef made them, required minimal ingredients, without too many grocery store trips, and you felt like a million bucks after eating?

Here's the thing...that's POSSIBLE!

We're in an unprecedented time where most structures and routines have gone out the window. And, what you eat now is more important than ever before because not only does food promote overall health and build immunity, but it also builds your emotional immune system too.

Meaning, what you eat directly impacts your mood, how you feel and how you show up for yourself and others in your home. Want to act like an absolute monster? Graze on snacks all day and you'll see.

Yes - food is that powerful.

You may also be looking at others in real life or on social media and think, "how do they have it all together, how are they possibly making healthy, picturesque meals, while working or homeschooling or living in this weird sci-fi movie?"

It's because they are doing something different than most people...and we're going to show you how it's done.

Maybe this sounds familiar?

You open your fridge and stare at unprepared ingredients, rather than ready-to-eat meals & think, “there’s nothing to eat!”

You don’t want to waste any food or ingredients and you don’t know when the next grocery shop or delivery will be

You don’t want to feel sluggish, trapped in your house with 24 hour open access to the pantry and all of its glorious snacks

You normally eat at restaurants or get takeout, you consider yourself “cooking challenged” or just don’t enjoy it

You love cooking but feel overwhelmed with what to make right now and don’t want to fall into a boring cooking rut

You don’t want to spend time scouring the internet or cookbooks for ideas or figuring out what everyone in your family will actually eat

now, Imagine if...

  • You had structure and a plan, you knew exactly what to cook and what ingredients you needed ahead of time.
  • You opened your fridge/freezer and it's stocked with appetizing prepared foods that are ready-to-eat
  • You supported your health and longevity with every recipe and bite, even when it tastes like decadent dessert
  • Someone else (like nutritionists and chefs) organized this part of your life for you, so you didn't have to think about it
  • It brought you joy, in a time when things are pretty dark, and you stepped out of your cooking comfort zone with new exciting recipes you would never have thought to make
  • You knew how to easily swap out ingredients for ones you already have on hand with confidence
  • You cooked while listening to a carefully curated playlist made just for you that eases stress and relaxes you

this is the same system we use to create nourishing meals & lasting health for our clients & for ourselves...and we know it will work for you too

Having a plan is one of the most freeing things you can do for yourself.

“We have had the great pleasure of working with the Living Kitchen for more than six years. In that time, we have been more well nourished and enjoyed more delicious meals than we ever could have imagined. Sarah and Tamara and their team are brilliant menu planners and fabulous cooks. In all the years that they have been cooking for our family, they have rarely repeated dishes, unless requested. We marvel that they are so creative and we are thankful that we are so healthy thanks to them.”

Hi! We're sarah + Tamara

We used to HATE plans, structures & schedules until they saved us.  We would come home after cooking or menu planning for clients and realized there was nothing for us to eat.  We were so focused on feeding others, we were barely feeding ourselves.  

And no matter how many times we opened and closed the fridge doors, meals did not magically appear.  

Our health was declining, we were subsisting on protein bars to get through the day until we completely burned out.  Something desperately needed to change.

So, we took the system we had created for our clients and tweaked it so that it would now work for us — a bit of planning, some creativity and a lot of nourishment later, we feel like we found the holy grail of eating well.  And now, we’re giving the system to you, so you can thrive! 

We are recipe creating and meal planning MASTERS – we ran a meal delivery service where we intricately created menus for hundreds of people. And, we operate a private chef service where we create personalized menus for clients and cook their meals.  

We wrote a best selling cookbook, called The Living Kitchen, published by Penguin Random House, which won the Gourmand Award.  

And our recipes have been featured in Washington Post, Food Network, MindBodyGreen, Hello! Canada, Thrive Magazine and CTV Your Morning.

“The Living Kitchen saved my life! I am a two-time cancer survivor and credit getting through treatment to the wonderfully delicious and nutritious special food that Sarah and Tamara made me. Equally important is the kindness, caring, love and positive energy they infused into their recipes and into ME.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.” 

eliminate overwhelm, get the plan, eat well now.

No problem, you’ll get 1 free trial week to see if you like it when you sign up.  This is like the dating period, to see if we’re a good match.  To access the free trial, you’ll have to sign up for the 1 month, 3 month or 1 year option.  Your credit card won’t be billed until after the 1 week trial.

We’ve learned that we gotta be realistic and some nights you just don’t feel like cooking a specific recipe.  We found it works best to leave some wiggle room in your plans each week.  This leaves space for ordering takeout and taking some nights off from cooking.  Maybe you have a simple go-to meal or favourite that you want to include in the rotation.  Or some frozen meals  you want to use up.  If you ever have questions about what to make, you’ll be able to ask us for help in our Facebook group once you’re a member.

Each week you’ll get 6 new recipes, so even though everyone has specific preferences, there will always be a variety of mouth-watering recipes with different flavour profiles you’ll want to make, we promise.  We want to inspire you to cook new things that you never thought to make before!

Almost everything we make is gluten-free and dairy-free. If we do use dairy or gluten, it’ll always be optional and we’ll provide the GF/DF alternative in the recipe.

All of our recipes are plant based, meaning there will be lots of vegetables.  We consider ourselves flexitarians, so sometimes we eat all vegetarian and sometimes we eat omnivore protein.  We will have protein options for BOTH vegetarians and omnivores. We use whole food ingredients, so there’s nothing refined.  That means we use things like maple syrup, honey, and coconut sugar instead of white sugar.  We use nourishing oils like extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil.  We use whole grains, like rice or gluten free noodles (but you can always swap out the grains if you don’t eat them).

You can upgrade at any time! If you sign up for 1 month, you can choose to upgrade to the 3 month membership or 1 year membership (and the cost will be prorated).  You can do that in your account once you’re logged in.

Of course we’ll be sad to see you go, but you can cancel anytime (you can access your account info at any time once you’re logged in).  

Once your 1 week trial week is over, your credit card will be billed $27 once every month if you signed up for the 1 Month option.  If you signed up for the 3 Month option, your credit card will be billed $78 once every 3 months.  If you signed up for the 1 Year option, your credit card will be billed $299 once every year.
