Abby's Story

Hi, I’m Abby Gardner, owner of Abby Cooks Wild. I started Abby Cooks Wild after spending a couple of years in direct sales, organizing in-home meal prep parties. On more than one occasion, I’d hear one or two people express their desire to have someone do the meal prep for them, and this gave me the idea to offer meal prep services. Abby Cooks Wild was born. Today, I specialize in helping time-strapped individuals & families alleviate their stress around getting dinner on the table each night. I do this by specializing in fully customized menus and recipes to meet my clients where they are in both life and in their health journeys.


I am a graduate of Arizona State University, where I studied exercise physiology. I also have a Master’s degree in Health Services Administration from Regis University. I spent 20+ years working as a Certified Athletic Trainer and taught pre/post-natal fitness classes for 5 years when my kids were little.


My husband & I live in Golden, CO with our two amazing kids and one slightly spoiled yellow lab, Maddie. When I’m not in the kitchen, I love to spend time curled up with a good book, immersing myself in other world cultures through travel, or spending time with friends & family.

Abby has prepped meals for me several times and it’s been beyond helpful! I love that she will do the shopping, the chopping, the labeling, so it’s all ready to go when I pull it out of the fridge!
