About

People with food allergies spend a ton of time getting meals on the table every night. Between planning, prepping, cooking, and cleaning mealtime can seem like an impossible (but necessary) task.  

My partners and I all struggled with food allergies too. We found it almost impossible to find recipes that were fast and easy without a ton of ingredients and it was certainly not fun converting recipes that called for processed foods.We barely had energy after a long day's work to spend time planning, prepping, and cooking then to have no one eat it because they didn’t like it.  

We knew there had to be a better way: Check it out here: www.20dishes.com

We decided to talk to professional chefs and home cooks alike to discover the secrets to getting dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less every single night of the week - even with food allergies. We took that information and created a system to make sure that no matter which recipes we picked, there were make-ahead steps. We made sure the system was scalable for the size of family and that it would create a custom shopping list as well.  

Want to know the best part?  

Weeknight meals were on the table in record time! (Check out a 5-day plan here) It was like one of those boxed meal delivery services only way less expensive and we had control over the ingredients eliminating the worry about dealing with a reaction. Our families LOVED the meals - even our pickiest eaters. There was little to waste to boot because every thing we bought was used! Heaven!  

We decided to give this gift to the entire world   (Take a look)

And 20 Dishes was born. We created a mobile responsive membership site and give our members everything but the kitchen sink in their membership:  

  • A whole week of hand curated plan that included dinners and sides
  • The ability to eliminate off-limits ingredients or entire food groups 
  • Access to over 800 recipes (including breakfasts) 
  • Step by step make ahead plan that based on the selected recipes 
  • Customizable grocery lists 
  • The ability to scale from 1 to 40 to fit their family's needs 
  • The option of choosing Paleo, Gluten-Free, Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), Vegetarian, and Clean Eating plans with the ability to switch between them at any time

 We were amazed by the results. A couple hundred really awesome people signed up! And for the most part (about 98%) absolutely loved it.

Take A Look At What We Have Done So Far!

So why Kickstarter and how will we use the funds?  

Kickstarter is an incredible community of people who appreciate great products. We think 20 Dishes fits that bill. We’ve gotten incredible feedback from our awesome members, and we’ll use the Kickstarter funds to revolutionize a new type of cooking experience. 

 We’ll use the funds for: 

  • App development and design costs 
  • Rapid prototyping Sourcing of content 
  • The occasional gluten-free grilled cheese (sorry we just love good food!) 
  • User feedback and final product tweaks before launch 

From the bottom of our happy, hungry hearts we thank you for being a part of 20 Dishes with us. From a few hundred members to tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, and eventually millions of people cooking and eating healthy, picky-eater-approved, allergy-friendly meals in record time, we’re humbled and thankful for you and all you do.

Risks and challenges

There are always risks when you're creating the future. We believe we're changing the way people shop for and prepare food, and creating healthier, tastier lifestyle along the way. That's a big task.

Our biggest risk is timing. We've set aggressive goals for ourselves. We've done this because there are thousands of people asking us to reach these goals, and hopefully after our Kickstarter campaign there will be thousands more.

We've set a goal of "shipping our software" or "creating the new 20 Dishes experience" by August of 2017 (this year!). We risk not hitting that date and shipping in September or October, but we've got an incredible team that's going to work day and night to make sure we keep our promise and get you an amazing product by August.
