Simplifying the way you eat, so you can spend more time doing the things you love!
Hi, I’m Ivy! I’m the chef and owner of 2 Birds Meal Prep. I grew up cooking in my mom’s kitchen, and continued my experience working in restaurants the last 15 years. As an avid runner (3 marathons!) and a plant-based enthusiast, I love nothing more than combining my love of nutrition with delicious, comfort food.
My philosophy is that we eat well because we love our bodies, not as a punishment. This is why you’ll never find a boring salad on our menu, in fact- I don’t put anything on our menu that I personally don’t love to eat. I try to offer as many plant-based options as possible, because as a vegan I know how hard it is to find great plant-based prepared foods (and I know how tired we all are of black bean patties).
At 2 Birds we use all organic ingredients, and as much local produce and meat as we can find. All the meat we cook with is hormone-free, grass fed and/or free range. We are constantly looking for ways to shop local, and think small business.
We got our start when I created a social media page to showcase the delicious meals I was making myself and my daughters each week. Friends started reaching out to me asking if I could meal prep for them, which I was excited to do! When I started getting requests from strangers to meal prep for them too, I realized we were on to something. Thus, 2 Birds was born!
2 Birds is able to meet the needs of busy, health conscious people by providing delicious, prepared meals that you can feel great about feeding yourself and your family. As a busy single mom, I understand how much my life is simplified when I have healthy prepared foods in the fridge.
I named my business after my daughters (Jaybird and Ravyn), because I wanted to always remember why I’m doing this. My professional background, prior to launching 2 Birds, was in the mental health field so I know how vital nutrition is to total health and wellness. I feel passionate about helping people view their health in a holistic way- nourishing mind, body and soul.
The foods we eat have a major effect on our mental health. When we care for ourselves by putting healthy, whole, delicious comfort foods into our bodies, it enables us to give back to our families and our communities.
Here at 2 Birds, our motto is to “Love Radically” and we think that starts at home. So, from our home to yours, we hope you allow us to simplify the way you eat so that you can spend more time doing the things that you love, and less time in the kitchen! Now, go and Love Radically!
Our mission is to serve delicious, healthy food so that our customers can spend more time with their families and less time in the kitchen.
We want our customers to love themselves enough to consume nutritious food.

Our motto at 2 Birds is to “Love Radically”.
We believe in radically loving ourselves, our families and our community.
