It’s Meal Thyme!

What is “It’s Meal Thyme”?

Developed by the Chief Creative Life Coordinator (Lisa) of the Domestic Life Stylist, LLC,
It’s Meal Thyme focuses on helping women to successfully manage their kitchens through private coaching, interactive classes, and meal planning services. 

Lisa has a passion for food like no other.  Every since she was a little girl Lisa loved watching and recreating cooking shows.

This passion for food would lead her to her mother’s kitchen where she experimented with cooking and baking, even from an early age.  Her passion for food and matters of the home has always been undeniable. Although, she later pursued a Doctor of Pharmacy degree in her adult life, she says that food has always been “her thing”.

Writing original recipes, trying new and innovative dishes and cooking methods are all in a day’s play for her.  This steadfast passion for all things food has transcended into her adult life with her husband of 11 years and two year old daughter.
“I love the flavor, the textures, the experiences that come with food. Food is a unique unifier that connects us all. My approach is special because my background gives me the advantage of knowing “first hand” what too much of a good thing can do to your body. Hence, moderation plays a role in my approach but, so does varying cooking techniques, seasonality, variety etc. for optimal flavor and great nutritional value.”

*Please note: Meal planning is a virtual service and available both nationally and internationally. All other services are currently only available in the Washington, DC  metro area (MD,DC,VA).
