Happy Wednesday, friends! Hope you’re having a great week & SPRING so far! Can’t believe we’re (hopefully) moving out of the colder months and into some warmer weather.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to worry about meal prepping your meals for the week and spend more time outdoors?
Let me introduce you to this DYNAMIC duo, Cindie Demello & Tanya Dimarco…the owners of GOOD4U RI which is a local meal delivery service right out of Hope & Main in Warren, Rhode Island!
Cindie (on the right) has been a personal trainer for over 25 years and was looking for meals that were convenient, easy, tasty, & nutritious that her clients (and her) could enjoy without having to put in the hours of meal prep.
She found that a major roadblock keeping people from reaching their health goals was time; the time it took to plan, shop, and cook healthy meals.
I agree with this so much as many of my clients love the ideas of nutrient dense meals, but don’t love the idea of planning/prepping/cooking. Ya feel me?
After attending Johnson & Wales University to become a Chef, Cindie had all the ingredients to launch good4u, a healthy meal delivery service with a personal trainer’s stamp of approval that was 100% gluten free.

Their healthy, nutritious, and tasty meals that are delivered to you start out as locally sourced, fresh produce and meats that are delivered the day before they cook.

I got introduced to these lovely ladies from my friend and trainer, Sam, who stopped me as I was walking into the gym to work and said, “KASEY! I have people I want you to meet. You’re going to LOVE them…and their food!”
And he wasn’t wrong.
Not only are their meals DELICIOUS (my husband often refers to them as “phenomenal” and “THESE GIRLS CAN COOK!) after trying many of them, but Cindie & Tanya are amazing individuals that make an unbelievable team.
Within 30 seconds of meeting them, I knew we’d be BFF’s.
After the initial 30 second “hey how are you?” We sat down and really got to know each others stories and HOLY SMOKES Cindie and I have so much in common. It was so awesome to see and connect with like-minded individuals in the fitness industry.
(shrimp + avocado apple cilantro salsa)
All of their cooking is done at Hope & Main in Warren, Rhode Island, a culinary business incubator with code-compliant, shared-use commercial kitchens.
All of GOOD4U’s food is prepared from scratch with the exception of a few products that they use from other Hope & Main businesses.
(steak tips + roasted potatoes + green beans & horseradish sauce)
They also buy from farmer’s markets and they shared with me that their chicken is hormone/antibiotic free and they source locally for their ingredients.
(sweet potato chicken chili)
I love aligning with people who have a mission & a passion. These ladies have both of those plus some and I’m so thankful now to know them and help spread their passion that so aligns with mine.
PLUS THEIR FOOD IS ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!
I mean, look at these peanut butter & chocolate energy balls.
Vegetarian or Vegan? No problem.
(black bean stuffed portobello mushroom)
They make a vegetarian meal every week and are willing to work with those who need special dietary protocols.
PLUS all of their meals are 100% GLUTEN FREE.
(tuna salad with vegan-mayo)
I’m so excited to partner with them & you’ll be seeing a lot more of them here on the blog and my weekly meals on my instagram stories!
