NEW YORK, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- MyFoodMyHealth, Inc. today announced the launch of MyFoodMyHealth (http://www.myfoodmyhealth.com), a food and wellness website that provides healthy meal plans, flavorful recipes and online tools designed especially for individuals and families who have multiple health conditions or allergies. One of the most difficult aspects of cooking for multiple dietary needs is coming up with one meal everyone at the table can enjoy. MyFoodMyHealth enables users to enter health concerns -- such as diabetes, high cholesterol and wheat allergy -- then uses a proprietary algorithm to find recipes and create meal plans that address all of the special dietary requirements. The quick and easy recipes on MyFoodMyHealth were created by professional chefs and nutrition experts who put an emphasis on delivering both great taste and nutrition. All health and nutrition information is science-based and reviewed by experienced nutritionists and physicians.
"Life becomes significantly more complicated if you are one of the millions of people who must deal with dietary restrictions due to health conditions," said Caroline Nation, founder of MyFoodMyHealth. "We designed our website to simplify that process and to shift the focus from what you can't eat to what you can eat and enjoy."
The MyFoodMyHealth website provides expert information and simple, online tools, including:
-- A weekly online meal planner that automatically generates menus tailored for your family's health and dietary needs. -- Easy-to-prepare recipes with a broad range of international flavors that make it a pleasure to eat healthy foods. -- Time-saving weekly shopping lists, pantry basics and online shopping resources. -- Health and nutritional information for specific health conditions. -- Exclusive cooking, health and nutritional videos and articles. -- Expert culinary tips and tools.
"Over the last 30 years, I have learned about the tremendous power of food to influence our emotional and physical health, both from personal experience and from studying nutritional science," said Susan Lord, MD chief medical advisor for MyFoodMyHealth, Inc. "This website is designed to support healthy eating within the context of our busy lives. It provides the information you need to easily adopt new menus that not only address your specific health concerns, but are so delicious you will want to eat this way."
At launch, the MyFoodMyHealth service supports multiple health conditions, including: acne, arthritis, asthma, candidiasis, celiac, depression, diabetes, eczema, fatigue, gout, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, hypothyroid, osteoporosis, pre- and post- chemotherapy and radiation, psoriasis, recently quit drinking, recently quit smoking, and stress. The service also takes into consideration food allergies so families can share meals together safely. Its unique algorithm can eliminate recipes with common food allergens including: almonds, chicken, chili pepper, corn, crab, eggs, gluten, milk, oats, peanuts, sesame seed/oil, shrimp, soy, spinach, strawberries, tomatoes and wheat. Over time, support for additional health conditions and allergies will be added. Users can make special requests for additional allergy needs and will receive a response within 48 hours.
Health information and sample recipes are available at no charge on MyFoodMyHealth and the recipe and meal planning service is available by subscription. For pricing and details, please see http://www.myfoodmyhealth.com.
