A Lafayette chef has had a change of heart when it comes to the kitchen. Molly says a health scare opened her eyes. She is no stranger to typical southern and cajun food. However after eating huge portions and very little exercise doctors told her she was killing herself.
"At 23 he looked at me and said I was a walking time bomb," said Molly Clayton Executive Chef of A Change of Heart.
With a family history of Diabetes, Heart Disease and Cancer, Molly says she had to make a change. She believes it was placed on her heart to create delicious healthy meals that help others save time and enjoy life again. One Lafayette customer says the meals have helped her maintain a delicious diet.
"The cost is affordable and they're good. They are very tasty and the food is fresh," said Customer Jaime Broussard.
Temporarily Molly prepares 200-300 hundred meals a week out Doucets Kitchen in Iota. She delivers meals from Iota to Lafayette. Orders placed by Thursday are delivered the following Wednesday.
"Everything is made from scratch and we do that cause we want to control the sodium intake," said Clayton.
Her biggest goal, to help stop Heart Disease in women. She donates a part of her profit to The Greater Acadiana American Heart Association.
"I believe that we can really change lives," said Clayton.
Beginning next month Molly will be serving lunches in Lafayette from her custom made food truck. For more information on A Change of Heart and how to place an order visit www.achangeofheart.us.
