Healthy Family Meals

We recently discovered Kitchit, an awesome service in NY, LA, Chicago and the Bay Area that hooks you up with one of any number of their chefs who specialize in almost any kind of cuisine. You choose the price, type of food, etc., and someone shows up at your door to make a special meal. Could be a dinner for two, or a party. We vetted them when in Los Angeles and had a full day with both the super cool Chef Ariane Resnick, who was put to the test with a million dietary restrictions (she is one of their special dietary needs masters) and awesomely affable Chef Joey Santos. Recipes for both days below. Below, healthy, family-friendly menus (gluten-free, dairy-free, red meat-free, refined sugar-free…).
