We had the good fortune of connecting with Marisela Segovia and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Marisela, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
My meal prep business helps many people by providing them with healthy well balanced meals that better their health, aid in weight loss, and provide nutritional value to their diet. It’s hard to find restaurants or take out that is healthy and meal prep is the next best thing! To be able to pick up your meals and just reheat throughout the week saves time and money that would’ve been wasted on fast food. I’m happy to provide my community with healthy and delicious meals at their convenience.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My business is slowly growing and I’m thankful to have such a personal interaction with each one of my clients. I think what sets my business apart from others is the time and detail put into my services to meet each clients dietary needs and personal preferences. I started meal prep services during college after taking a nutrition course and becoming more interested in health and nutrition. I’ve always had a couple clients over the years but finally established a website in May 2020 and business has grown and become steady since then. It’s always a learning process when starting your own business for the first time. I love to learn and figure out new ways and ideas to put into my business. Everyday is not easy but it’s important to stay focused and dedicated to your goals and aspirations. Meal prep is very close to my heart and I hold it to such a high standard because I was able to lose a total of 70 pounds over the course of several years changing my entire lifestyle and engulfing myself in health, nutrition, and exercise.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My favorite restaurant to visit on a Saturday afternoon is urban eats. The food never disappoints here and they have many healthy options. For a drink I would head to Lei low, the cutest Hawaiian themed bar with the BEST drinks ever ! For a more relaxing day a walk through Buffalo bayou park is always good on a nice sunny day.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to shoutout my mom. She has always been my biggest fan and number one supporter in all my business ventures. She’s always willing to lend a helping hand and push me to be the best that I can be. This really sets the tone for my business because everyday I strive and push myself to be the best I can be in order to make my clients satisfied.
