What Clients are Saying About Us

  • Maureen Rego – Cooking Class Client

    “Thank you Haley for the informative shopping trip and back to my kitchen for the entire “hands-on” prepping of meals and sides. From the totally different vegetables that we used, to the very delicious and healthy meals that we prepared, I am very grateful. You taught me things that I had never known how to do, like braising kale and massaging kale. You taught me to use totally different vegetables, like tomatillos and poblano peppers. You taught me how to disguise a lot of vegetables in a chili verde sauce so that my 17 yr old twin boys could eat (unknowingly) healthy burritos. BTW….they ended up devouring them again the next day. I even learned a few tips about how and when to use different olive oils. And the next morning….to find my healthy quinoa and kale salad easily identified with proper identification was the bomb. Didn’t even have to think about it. Just had to grab a fork and go.”

  • Scott – Chief Compliance Officer, Meal Prep Client

    “Chef Haley is a life changer! How you may ask, well let me tell you. Despite no family history and not being overweight I was diagnosed in late 2018 with adult-onset Type 2 diabetes. It was time to make lifestyle changes and that started with eating healthier. My wife and I met with Haley who got to know our likes and dislikes with respect to foods, spices, etc. She then used this information and her nutritional background to design meals specifically for me including calorie count and the nutritional value of each ingredient. I have found each meal to be well prepared, very tasty and, despite being portion controlled, filling. After eating “healthy with Haley” for less than 4 months, I have lost weight, feel healthier, and most importantly, after a follow-up doctor visit, no longer a diabetic. A result directly attributable to Haley. I highly recommend her.”

  • Jenny Slate – Actress, Author, Comedian

    “These ladies make some of the most delicious food I’ve eaten in a lonnnng time! If you live in SouthCoast MA and are looking for a chef to do meal prep, cooking classes for adults AND kids, events, or retreats, please please get in touch with my at The Holistic Trick. THEY MAKE THE TASTIEST BEST FOOOOOOOOD!!!!”

  • Stepahnie – Cooking Class Attendee

    “We had the pleasure of a girl’s night cooking class led by Haley. It was delightful, informative and most importantly, delicious. I highly recommend the Holistic Trick. It was an opportunity for us to get together, cook together and learn together. The next event I host I will ask Haley to chef it, this way I can be outside of the kitchen and with my guests. Thank you, Haley!”

  • Meal Prep Client

    “Having Haley cook for us has made a huge positive impact in our busy lives. Having a quick healthy meal available has been so amazing for us!”

  • Carissa

    “I can’t say enough wonderful things about Chef Haley…the food she prepares is layered with flavor and she takes the time to understand your likes, (along with your dislikes) and then creates the most perfect menu for you and your guests. The ingredients she uses are locally sourced and her preparation is unmatched. Besides her food being wonderful, chef Haley is so easy to work with, has a great disposition and is always dependable and extremely organized. We have used her for both small and larger dinner parties and the experience and food she provides are always amazing. I’d recommend The Holistic Trick again and again.”

  • Caitlin Winkley – Life Coach

    “I most recently hired Haley Pollock of The Holistic Trick to chef at my life coaching retreat at Smith Farm Gardens. Blown away doesn’t even come close to describing my experience of hiring Haley. Before finding Haley, I had interviewed tons of chefs. None of them felt just right, until I had found The Holistic Trick. She had all of the unique elements I was looking for – education on how food effects our wellbeing, a value in farm-to-table dining, the ability to creatively use local ingredients, friendly, positive demeanor, gorgeous presentation of the meals and impeccable work ethic. Ready for the best part though? Her food was insanely good! I wanted to offer my retreat members healthy meals and Haley was able to turn gluten free, dairy free and mostly refined sugar-free meals into some of the most delicious meals me and my retreat members have literally ever tasted! Her attention to detail with each meal was noted and appreciated. Not to be corny, but I could feel the love with every bite. Everyone needs chef Haley in their kitchen. I can’t recommend this woman enough!”
