Meagan Lombaer is a Plant Based Chef and creator of The Radical Larder. Over the course of 2018 she has been exploring the relationship between food, movement and overall wellbeing and is learning that wellbeing comes down to lifestyle choices, intention and strong connections with food, movement and other people/plants/animals. In an effort to create a living example of the interconnectedness of these things, The Radical Larder is a food business that strives to pair with movement and whole being practices. 

In addition to six years working in the restaurant industry and securing her AAS from Kendall College, Meagan is currently completing her 200 hour yoga teacher training at Moksha Yoga Chicago and practices the Ashtanga Yoga sequence regularly in combination with Vinyasa style and Hatha Style yoga, meditation and breathwork. Meagan has plans to travel to Asia this winter to gather more knowledge and experience before setting down roots in a physical location for her business. 

The Radical Larder is available for private events, retreats, cooking classes and other catering opportunities. Contact: and follow on IG @radlarder to see what The Radical Larder is up to.

"Thank you again for the unbelievable job you did last night. We had some serious picky and meat eaters, and all raved about the food and cake! Your service, creativity, and communication is fantastic and you made the whole process easy! I will definitely recommend you to everyone!

"I saw The Radical Larder's Plant Based Pop Up event on social media and, as a vegetarian, I had to check it out. I am glad I did. The plant based chili and corn bread were delicious as was the beer (at Empirical Brewery). I was considering going back to eating meat this year, but was encouraged by the food at this pop up."

"Chef Meagan was easy to work with and brought a calm demeanor into our kitchen. We had a dinner party for 10 people in our home and were impressed with how fresh and delicious everything was. She did a pie crust demonstration and provided recipes for us and our guests. Overall a wonderful experience."
