  1. Love this idea! I’ve also had to drastically change my diet for health reasons in the past (think, no soy, corn, vegan and gluten free) and it was tough!! Having resources like this would be super helpful.

  2. Looking forward to testing this out. I definitely had that moment when I got a diagnosis, but the doctor had so little food based advice, I felt lost. Recipes always have to be modified and then no one wants to try to eat what you need to because it’s a weird Frankenstein’s monster of a recipe and they have no faith in it, so you make a whole other meal. It’s isolating and a time suck. Fingers cross that this platform works for me.

  3. I don’t have dietary restrictions, but what a great idea! I shared this story on Facebook and with a few friends I thought would be interested.
