Mindful Meals is owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Kristin and Blake Meyer.
Both active in the Central Florida CrossFit community, Blake and Kristin saw the desire from athletes for quick and healthy meal options that were still flavorful and filling. They set out to design meals suited to satisfy even the most active person while utilizing only the freshest and most in-season products available.
While Mindful Meals is overwhelmingly popular with the fitness clientele in which our roots began, the business has grown to serve busy families, the elderly and even local professional athletes.
At Mindful Meals, we live by a quote from Virginia Woolf
“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
Kristin Meyer – Owner and Chief Executive Officer
Kristin has had a lifelong passion for food and cooking, having grown up in a family of chefs, restaurateurs and self-proclaimed foodies.
After graduating from the University of Central Florida, Kristin worked in the corporate world of food sales and traveled throughout the Southeast as a Regional Sales Manager for 6 years.
Following the birth of her first child, Kristin became a stay-at-home mom, but the desire to get back in the business world was always close at hand. It was during a chance conversation with some friends that the idea for Mindful Meals came about and from there the business blossomed.
Blake Meyer – Owner and Chief Operating Officer
Before establishing Mindful Meals with his wife Kristin, Blake worked for 12 years as a sales and marketing specialist for various companies throughout Central Florida.
His passion for health and fitness, combined with his executive experience, make it easy for Blake to discuss and market the Mindful Meals plan throughout the state.
Blake is the friendly voice you will hear when reaching out to us over the phone and has always lived by a motto of 100% customer satisfaction and doing whatever it takes to make sure you love Mindful Meals!
