Our story

Ever asked your health provider about how you can manage a health condition and get the classic “diet and exercise” response? Same here.

After being diagnosed with a chronic condition a few years ago, I turned to “Dr. Google” for answers on managing my condition through diet. After months of researching, blogger-following, experimentation, and talking to friends and family, I was overwhelmed with conflicting advice and quick-fix diets with little benefit.

All the research pointed to diet as the cause and solution; but how would diet translate into foods on the dinner table? Speaking to recently-diagnosed community members, I realized there was a gap from diagnosis to the kitchen.

Almost everyone I spoke to received a sheet from their doctor pointing to ingredients they should avoid. “That’s great!  Now how do I modify the foods I know and love?”, I wondered.

Enter Yumlish.

I created Yumlish and even before there was a website, there was excitement. Turns out, there is a huge appetite for recipe modifications, vetted by dietitians and nutritionists, and that is catered to health conditions. We are moving from fads to facts for health conditions by partnering with local dietitians.  I invite you to join our Yumlish community as we make chronic illness recipes accessible!  Join us.

Sincerely,
