Easy Eats is a digital magazine that has been providing the gluten-free community with news and reviews for over three years. After lots of positive encouragement from our readers, we’re expanding to show the world that it’s good to be gluten free. Here's a little info about who we are, what we’re doing, and how you can help.
WHO WE ARE
Our home-grown project started out with one couple asking the question, “Why aren’t today’s food and lifestyle magazines more conscious of gluten-free needs?” From there, more family was brought on board, and our tiny staff answered with a fun, positive approach to gluten-free living. Now, we’ve added industry all-stars whom you know and love, including Silvana Nardone (founding editor-in-chief of Every Day with Rachael Ray) and Amie Valpone (nutrition blogger extraordinaire of The Healthy Apple).
WHAT WE’RE DOING
We’re taking the upbeat concept our readers have enjoyed for three years and adding a fresh look, a better digital experience, and a full staff to bring you even better issues. Here’s how… (1) A Stunning Reading Experience: We’ve been dreaming about creating the kind of rich, interactive experience that makes recipes jump off the page and allows us to connect our readers with the stories in new and exciting ways for a long time. (2) Bigger, Better Content: We have a whole calendar of stories and columns already planned. We’re upping the ante on what it means to be a gluten-free magazine with industry-best photographers, a talented pool of writers, and magazine mobility (our issues on your phone or tablet).
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Up to this point, we’ve funded Easy Eats ourselves, providing a needed resource to a growing community. Now, we are asking for $10,000 to help us expand Easy Eats and are matching that with $10,000 out of our own pockets.
Your donations will allow us to put out the first issue this September. Specifically, the money will be used to:
- License and develop the nifty platforms we plan on using for our online and mobile distribution (issue readers for the web, iPad, Android, etc.)
- Pay our freelance writers and photographers for their great work
- Lay out the issue with the help of our graphic designer
- Finish our website so that everyone can access all of the easy eating we bring to the world this September
We want to offer our early supporters (you!) lots of perks and bonuses. Every little bit helps, and we've set up a whole set of awesome rewards for contributors! Additionally, you can sign up at www.easyeats.com (and follow us on Facebook and Twitter) to keep up with the latest news.
Thank you so much - we truly appreciate your support and encouragement!
