Markshane was prompt in replying to my enquiry through thumbtack and flexible in seeing me on my schedule very early in the morning. When we met he was engaging, empathetic, understanding and walked me through his story, his passion and how he thought he could help me. Needless to say I am now a customer and very impressed by not just the fitness solution he is offering, but also the support, holding me accountable and the ancillary services (nutrition and massage) available. He truly understands that he can help support you to better health, but that you may not realise that yet, so the process is slow at first, as it should be. Watch this space though as I know results are in my immediate future with Markshane by my side.

I contacted Busy Bee Cook for Me to cater my Dad's 90th birthday party for about 40 people in our senior complex. She came and checked out the venue and made some recommendations for the food and service that were right on the mark for what I was looking for. On the day of the party, she and her crew showed up right on time, and both the food and service were totally amazing. People who were there have been saying that it was the party against which all other parties they ever attend will always be measured. And Dad enjoyed himself immensely. Thanks so much to Lilian and her crew for helping make the party for my Dad such a great success!.

I have nothing but great things to say about the service, quality, and overall delivery of Best Mobile Chef. From beginning to end, Shawna was very attentive and professional. As a bride, I can honestly say that planning a wedding is one of the most stressful experiences in your life; however, Shawna did an amazing job at making sure I was not stressed or worried when it came to the catering, bartending, and cake. She made sure that each and every need was met, and she even offered her assistance with cutting our cake even though that was out of her services. We sat down and went over every detail, and Shawna made sure to keep in touch throughout the way to maintain things and to make sure that we were on track with everything. Finally on the day of, the food and setup was more than what was expected. Our family and friends spoke so highly of the food and service. Shawna and her team was absolutely phenomenal! My husband and I would definitely book Shawna and her team again for a large dinner, and even desserts. We are both forever thankful and grateful!

Lauren has been more than great. She works with my crazy schedule is sweet and accommodating. I wanted someone to help me with my food intake, and not just having someone send me a weekly log of what I should be eating. I was looking for someone to teach me to cook and portion. Lauren was more than willing even though it did mean more time. I'm into the process 4 weeks and down 6 lbs. For me that's a significant amount, I'm 5'6" and 124 now :) 4 more to go and I'll hit my mark.

We used BAPS! catering for our annual Halloween party for about 100 people. The food was AMAZING and a crowd pleaser. The prices were reasonable and Brad was professional and responsive; super helpful. They did drop-off service and set it up with everything we needed and extra supplies and food to replenish as things ran out. Would use them again and highly recommend them.

Brought in Andres each morning during our vacation to be woken up by delicious smelling food and fresh fruit after a fun night out. Andres delivered. From his Crab Benedict one morning to his Huevos Rancheros the next and American breakfast on steroids the final day with stuffed frenchroast, perfect scrambled eggs, cheese stuffed tator tots, crispy bacon and the list goes on! All served with freshly squeezed orange juice that he must put something else in it because it's crave worthy. Most days we didn't even eat again until dinner he fed us so well in the morning. He even leaves the kitchen spotless when done. Great service. Great food. Great guy. Highly recommend.

Daily Chew Catering dished up a bit of heaven on a plate for a holiday party recently and from the first time I contacted Carly until the last bit of food was gone, we were blown away by the entire experience. Daily Chew Catering offers a wide selection of menu options, so there's guaranteed to be something great for every palate, and everything is done well. Daily Chew does food service right, and I'll no doubt be quick to call back and start planning for our next event as soon as the time comes. Thank you for the professionalism, the amazing food, and your passion for great-tasting, incredible quality catering experience!

Her approach to nutrition is easy to follow and will leave you satisfied, there's no starvation or food deprivation. You get to eat food you love while reaching your goals. SlimGym offers a variety of delicious protein, the best part - it's based on natural ingredients, even safe for pregnant ladies like myself. I am really happy with this studio!

Andrea Lane has quite simply been an amazing personal trainer for me! She took the appropriate time to understand who I am as a person, my eating and exercise habits as well as my age and physical ability to craft a nutrition and exercise program specific to me. As my nutrition coach and personal trainer, she helped me get back my desired physique, improve my nutrition habits and attain my targeted weight goal. Quite frankly, Andrea has done what no one else could do and I have regained my happiness in life and feel great! I highly recommend Andrea Lane as a personal trainer and nutrition coach!

Joann was amazing! I hired her to do a benefit for me, at my home in Point Loma. She is a clear communicator, timely, flexible (I had her redo my proposal 3 times) & delicious! I love that all her food is gluten free & organic. She was very creative with her food suggestions & happy to accommodate my needs. Everything was beautifully plated & she gave generous portions. I will definitely use her again. Not only was her food a great experience, but Joann was a delight ~ I highly recommend Chef Joann!

I have used Patsy several times. My first class was knife skills, food prep, and planning a home cooked meal. We prepared it and enjoyed the meal we cooked. Not only was Patsy knowledgable but is a great teacher that seemed to put everyone at ease no matter how "skilled" or not we were coming into this class. My son Kurt called upon Patsy to help him plan and execute my surprise 60th birthday party. Kurt told me he never could have pulled off not only a great party with beautiful trays of food without Patsy guiding him through the whole journey as a novice party giver. Patsy is the whole package and you'll be happy you hired her.

Monterey is an enthusiastic & extraordinarily talented Chef preparing food that is pleasing to the eye as well as to the palate. From a buffet lunch where she created beautiful & scrumptious dishes that made our taste buds dance to an authentic Moroccan Feast that transported us all back to Marrakech, her food has never failed to delight us and our guests. I confidently recommend her.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does a nutritionist cost?

A nutritionist provides expertise and guidance to help clients with all diet-related health matters, including losing weight, gaining muscle, improving their sports performance, and managing diabetes or high cholesterol. Nutritionists can help people learn to follow special diets in a healthy way, such as becoming vegetarian or vegan or developing a low-sodium or gluten-free eating plan. The average national cost of a nutritionist is $60 to $100. Nutritionists often require an initial consultation with a new client, during which they’ll take a medical history, assess the client’s nutritional needs, and determine the best course of action; this first meeting usually averages $100-$120 for a 45-minute to 90-minute consultation. Subsequent nutritional counseling sessions generally cost less, ranging from an average of $45 for a half-hour session to $60-$90 for a one-hour session. Like many professional service providers, nutritionists may offer discounts through package pricing. For instance, a one-month package with two sessions and email support costs an average of $190; a three-month package with three sessions and email support costs an average of $360; and a six-month package with six sessions and email support costs an average of $540.  

How much do private cooking lessons cost?

You can take private cooking classes to have fun, to learn a new skill, to improve your health, to bond with your partner, to enjoy a playful first date or to have a unique birthday party experience. Nationally the average cost of private cooking lessons ranges between $100 and $150. Prices can vary, depending on where you live, the type of cooking class you’re taking, the ingredients the chef provides, and the reputation of the chef. Cooking classes with Anthony Bourdain will clearly cost more than classes with a local restaurant owner. The number of people in the class will also affect the cost, with group lessons often priced per person to account for the cost of ingredients. For example, for group lessons, a brunch workshop may cost an average of $70 per person, a steak dinner with sides could cost an average of $80-$85 per person, and a sushi lesson could cost an average of $100 per person. Ingredients play a major role in cost, as the chef will pre-purchase the food you will be working with. Weekday classes will usually cost less than weekend classes.

Are nutritionists covered by health insurance?

Nutrition counseling can be a critical component of good health care, especially for people recently diagnosed with diabetes or high cholesterol who need to adhere to a specific diet. People also meet with nutritionists for help developing a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet, developing an eating plan to lose weight or gain muscle, or improving their sports performance by changing their diet. Nutritionists may be covered by health insurance depending on your reason for meeting with them. Nutrition counseling is more likely to be covered if it is part of a doctor-prescribed treatment for a particular medical condition, such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or coronary heart disease. For example, Medicare covers medical nutrition therapy services only for people diagnosed with diabetes or kidney disease, as long as they get a referral from their doctor. Also, insurance providers more often cover nutrition visits if the patient has been referred to a registered dietitian within the carrier’s network of providers. Insurance plans vary greatly, so research your benefits before visiting a nutritionist.
