Originally published in the Summer 2015 issue of Robb Report Health & Wellness as “Private Plates.”

The obstacles to healthful eating are not always so easily overcome as learning which foods offer superior antioxidant power or bestow more fiber. Complicating the equation much more often are the crunch of overburdened schedules and the standards of a sophisticated palate. The simplest way to vanquish one’s lack of time while elevating the gourmet experience at home, or even traveling, is to enlist the help of a private chef who can craft beautiful and delectable, yet also salubrious, meals.

Christian Paier—whose company, Private Chefs Inc., is one of the premier agencies placing chefs in homes all over the world—says those in the highest demand cook healthy food that is both nutritious and satisfying, which calls for organic, farm-fresh ingredients and low-sugar, low-fat preparations with an emphasis on whole foods and grains. “Whether a client is an athlete or a businessperson, it is important that he or she be healthy and at a peak level of performance,” Paier says. “A private chef affords that guarantee without having to think about it.” 
These seven top chefs are keeping their clients’ diets both clean and delicious.
