Welcome to Viva Foods
Healthy food delivery in San Diego
Viva Foods started in a very organic and fun way. I decided to learn how to cook because I wanted to feed my family with delicious but healthy food so I went to cooking school and completed some nutrition programs where I learned about the different diets. At that time, it was a hobby and I was enjoying my new skills, making parties and bringing great food to the table whenever I had guests at home. One of my close friends asked me to cook for him - we both wanted to lose weight so it seemed like a good idea to do healthy meal prep to get fit. Since it was just a hobby I was doing it for free but eventually, he offered to pay for the service and bring some of his coworkers in, and I accepted.
I started creating healthy recipes from comfort food ideas, and even my cooking graduation project included a low-calorie dessert that I called "Lady's First" which was a delicious TANGERINE GRANITA infused with CHAMPAGNE...yum!
In cooking school you don't learn how to cook healthy, they care most about flavor, same in restaurants and that is frustrating once you know all the hidden fats and artificial flavors they use, so part of this business is to reeducate your staff and teach them about clean diets and healthy cooking techniques.
To me, diet is very important because since my teenage years I struggled with weight management; it took me a long time to learn how to eat properly, be healthy and still look fit. Today I can proudly say that I'm in the best shape of my life, including healthy food in your diet is a daily choice, not an easy task when you do it all by yourself.
Soon after I started doing meal prep for clients I was contacted by a big gym here in San Diego to make fit food for their retail store. Now I only work with direct clients and an eating research program.
Some of my clients request specific amounts of ingredients according to what their doctors or trainers recommend and nothing gives me more motivation than knowing there's something I can do to help my clients and positively impact their lifestyle. I love doing meal prep.
