Love & Plates is a local woman-owned business that specializes in nutrition-based meal planning and catering. We offer multiple options to fit every need, with an emphasis on local sourcing. Our elevated comfort food is perfect for any occasion.
“Love & Plates has been a game-changer for our family. As a mom to a 2-year-old and a 1-year-old, working from home full-time during a pandemic, mealtime had become a challenge. Dinner prep was the biggest struggle, and we were all gaining weight from daily takeout dinners. Enter Chef Nicolle. She listens, allows me to pick my own recipes to fit my nutritional needs, and makes dinnertime a breeze! She is sweet, accommodating, funny, trustworthy, and a wonderful cook. Knowing that dinner is prepared in advance, with nutritious ingredients, has given me the extra boost needed in my weight loss journey. Through a healthy, sustainable diet and the right planning, I have lost 30 pounds of extra baby weight so far. I cannot imagine dinnertime without Nicolle—I don’t want to!”
Love & Plates can truly adapt to all food preferences. I eat only organic paleo, and Nicolle cooks with the oils I like—olive and avocado, etc. She also makes milder versions of meat for our 10-year-old, as well as delicious things like chickpea cauliflower curry and chicken veggie soups, roasted chicken with lemon, amazing salads of every kind—Greek, cabbage Asian slaw, anything you can imagine. Want sugar-free, low-carb desserts? She makes almond-flour shortbread cookies and mint chocolate-chip coconut ice cream (dairy-free with monk fruit sweetener). I’m a major foodie, so the quality has to be good. Nicolle delivers every single time.”
