I started meal prepping on Sundays. Full disclosure. Sometimes this was hard. Sometimes this was really really really hard. BUT, I knew if I didn’t do it, my entire week would get messed up. There wasn’t enough time to eat healthy without carving out a marathon cooking day. And so it began…
To stay motivated, I took to social media. I started to take pictures of what I was eating (like every meal!). I was the Tupperware queen, often pulling over onto the side of the road or lingering in the back of parking lots to eat breakfast and lunch in-between work calls. My food pictures were gaining popularity on Instagram and I was receiving random propositions like “I’ll give you money to cook for me!” on a regular basis. I’d laugh off these requests but after several months, I decided “what the Hell!” I threw together a quick menu, purchased a domaine name and let Carr Eats loose!! The name itself was born out of several failed attempts at something better.
I thought – Ok… At best maybe I make 1-2 extra meals each week. How hard could that be? I mean I’m already prepping for myself. But, oh baby! I was epically ill prepared for what was next. Over a hundred orders in my first week. Honestly – I had a big “oh shit” moment. I didn’t have room for anything! I had food at my house, food at my parents house, food in coolers in the living room… FOOD EVERYWHERE. I was working 40+ hours at my full time job, then I was cooking and packing meals (by myself) for 24hrs on Sunday. I’d start around 5am and finish around 5am the following day; take a quick shower without any sleep, deliver my meals, then head to my real job.
Always the eternal pessimist, I thought – This must be a fluke! But week after week, the orders grew and it became very obvious, I couldn’t sustain this pace. So… I quit my pharma job (YIKES!!). Was I crazy?! Probably – but I haven’t looked back. My name is quite literally in the company name. I’m part of the brand. I personally value and understand the struggle of each and every one of my customers. From new moms to athletes, each client is part of something more than just a sale to me. I want to be in your fridge. I want to make your life just a little easier. I am overly passionate about health and nutrition.
