Healthy Dinners for Your Busy Lifestyle

     Leslie & Eric Benz enjoy using the earth’s bounty to create balanced and delicious meals. They took a dilemma that is common for others and turned it into a livelihood.


Working all day and hungry after a hard day’s work these two felt that they didn’t have time, after a long commute, to cook a healthy meal for their family. They searched for pure ingredients within pre-packaged dinners and found no healthy alternatives in the grocery aisle.


     So, with Eric’s culinary expertise and Leslie’s streamlining techniques, they created Hunter Gatherer Dinner kits, which are big on taste and short on time.


     They have searched locally and nationally for unique ingredients which complement each dish, creating a simpler way to use your favorite cuts of meat you gather from the store or for the game or fish that you have harvested yourself.


     Harvesting game meat yearly, Eric has been a seasoned upland game and bow hunter all his life. Leslie a nature lover, enjoys camping, backpacking, kayaking and hiking.


Now, they are combining a love for their new found careers in the outdoor & specialty food industry. His previous career in robotics and lean manufacturing in Silicon Valley, California combined with Leslie’s background in IT, freelance graphic design and social media and marketing gave them the confidence to continue on their entrepreneurship quest.


     Presently, they live in the Blue Ridge Mountains where they are surrounded by the beautiful George Washington & Jefferson National Forest with their son and dog, Keeper.


     They invite you to share with them how their dinner kits changed your meal planning or camping trip or any feedback you may have. They want to provide you with the best products possible.
