Chef Sandy Pike acquired lots of free time when she sold her dessert business, Queen of Tarts, in 2005. Soon afterward, a close family member needed a diet overhaul following some stern words from the doctor. Drawing upon more than 20 years of culinary experience and a love affair with local, seasonal ingredients, Sandy began preparing healthy, flavorful meals ideal for diabetics. Before long, non-diabetic friends and neighbors began clamoring for her creations as well. In response, she launched Home Cuisine, a kitchen where she and fellow chefs create complete, nutritious meals that can be picked up or delivered, then heated and enjoyed at home, as a part of Louisville's only healthy meal delivery service. Now in its tenth year, Home Cuisine employs classically trained chefs to prepare Paleo meals made with local and organic ingredients, providing clients a healthy approach to clean eating. Filled with fresh produce, eggs, and lean meats?not trans fats or chunks of deep-fried Spam?her dishes showcase healthy eating's tasty side and illustrate the concept of portion control. Her staffers follow the American Heart Association's dietary guidelines and consult dietitians and food scientists from two local universities to ensure that each meal is as balanced as possible.

Rainbow Blossom Natural Food Markets has always been ahead of its time. Founders Rob and Pumpkin Auerbach have sold all-natural supplements and organic food for more than 35 years—starting well before many Americans had even heard of such nutritious goodies as wheatgrass or fruit. "My father always said that they opened the store about 10 years too early for the area," daughter and COO Summer Auerbach told Vitamin Retailer in 2012, when the publication named Rainbow Blossom Retailer of the Year. But when world-famous rock bands began touring around Louisville, they relished Rainbow Blossom's wholesome pastas, produce, and macrobiotic and vegetarian cuisine, boosting the revenue and reputation of the mom-and-pop grocery and helping it expand to its present-day network of five locations. Today, the family-run enterprise enjoys an avid following from health-conscious customers who stock up on organic dairy, produce, and veggie burgers or enrich their diets with nutritional bars, supplements, and vitamins. Plant extracts and amino acids keep bodies in healthful balance, and shelves full of naturally derived cosmetics, bath products, and housewares keep homes free from harsh chemicals and damaging pollutants.
