Kristel’s Keto Kitchen
Kristel Allen’s story of weight loss is what ultimately inspired her to start her meal prepping business, Kristel’s Keto Kitchen. What started off as helping a few coworkers plan and prepare their meals each week turned into a business. Kristel attributes much of her weight loss success with “making meal prepping a lifestyle.” Kristel says, “It helps you to be ready and prepared for life.”
Kristel focuses on preparing high protein, low carb meals for herself and her clients each week. Custom orders are an option as well. Kristel’s Keto Kitchen offers pickup or delivery to specific locations.

Home Cuisine is a family-owned meal delivery service run by mother-daughter duo Sandy and Mae Pike. Mae believes that what’s important for success is staying the course. “We come in to help folks who don’t have the time or know how to cook. We just make it easy,” she says.
