Femeika Elliott is #MadeForKnoxville
In 2016, Femeika decided her life needed a health reboot; but as an entrepreneurial chef, she wasn’t going to shy away from good food. As she ventured on her own journey to better health, she realized she could help others live a healthier, sacrifice-free lifestyle, too.
Femeika started Meik Meals, a meal prepping service to help Knoxville individuals achieve their nutrition and fitness goals with stress-free, affordable, and flavorful meals. With every meal prepped, she has helped the Knoxville community see that successful fitness doesn’t have to come at the cost of quality food.
In 2022, Femeika won KEC’s “What’s the Big Idea?” pitch competition to begin a new endeavor: The Lotus Program. She saw a need and created a post-birth meal service and wellness initiative for mothers. The program assists with meal planning, preparation, food education, holistic wellness and mindfulness that supports the mother and her womb recovery.
“The Lotus Program is the missing link to a woman’s recovery post-birth and loss–specifically designed to nurture the nurturer.”
In Their Own Words..
Mission: We specialize in serving individuals in Knoxville, Tennessee and surrounding areas while promoting a healthy lifestyle of clean, affordable, and flavorful meal preparation. We believe in the freedom of choice by providing customizable meal plans to meet our clients’ desires as we provide lunch and dinner. We offer Vegetarian, Pescatarian, Vegan, Paleo or Custom meal plans.
Our Commitment: We commit to provide satisfying meals without sacrificing quality while providing the freshest, most convenient way for you to meet your nutrition and fitness goals without having to plan, cook or settle for frozen, preservative-filled products.
The Lotus Program: This slight pivot within our company, Meik Meals, is based on lived experience and the pregnancy/post-birth stories of other black women, as we are twice as likely to succumb to postpartum depression than any other demographic. The Lotus Program is the missing link to a woman’s recovery post-birth and loss–specifically designed to nurture the nurturer.
