Everyone LOVES

Everyone loves to eat great-tasting food and it is even better when that food is also loaded with the nutrients your body needs to help you lead a happy, healthy life. I’m Chef Marshall O’Brien, and I am here to show you how to put Delicious in Nutritious®. We are working with schools, child care facilities, families, city agencies and corporations to help develop positive eating habits that will last a lifetime.

This is Nutrition on a Mission®. Please follow the links below to learn more.


Families need to start realizing that nourishing and feeding are not the same thing. If you eat a donut and drink a soda, you have eaten and drunk, but have not nourished nor hydrated. Nourishing is about consuming the right vitamins, minerals and fiber to help your body and mind grow stronger, to help you learn and perform better, and to help you and your family lead happier, more fulfilled lives.
Stop just looking at calories and start looking at the nutrients your family needs and develop a nourishment plan.

Cities & Community Organizations

We are working with cities to improve performance and safety by developing special nutrition and hydration programs for firefighters, police and public works staff. We are also helping other community partners, like the YMCA and youth sports leagues, to train their members to make smart nutrition choices.

Schools & Child Care Facilities

Let us help you transform meal time into learning time for your school or child care facility. We help child care kids learn to like the foods that are best for them, and at school we help develop meals that taste great, help improve behavior in the classroom and even raise test scores! We can help you increase your participation rates, too.

Corporate Wellness

It has been proven that healthy workers not only perform better, but also enjoy greater job satisfaction and more satisfying lives outside the workplace. But most employees need motivation to change their habits and lifestyle. Our Smart Eating for Well-Being program supply’s that motivation by demonstrating the lasting benefits of eating foods that increase energy or improve the immune system or foods that reduce stress or inflammation. Making the right nutrition choices will help your employees lead happier and more productive lives.

Corn Off the Cob

Have you ever struggled to cut the corn off the cob for use in a salad or soup, or for freezing? It can be difficult with the kernels flying and rolling in all directions, only to end up on the floor or in your pet’s mouth. Use two bowls, one small and one large, to […]
