Eatable is the totally legitimate love-child of two friends, Ash and Em.
We could try to tell their stories separately, but their journey has been so similar that it simply makes no sense! The girls grew up in a small town in NSW, Australia and as with many Aussie households, there was toast or cereal for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch and meat-based dinner. Over the years the two of them experimented different ways of eating like vegetarian, vegan, raw, etc. In truth, they both felt like their bodies were working against them, so these different diets were a way to gain control over a pretty complex issue. Turns out, both girls are intolerant to gluten, dairy, soy and corn (that last one is a bonus just for Ash), and were walking around with these issues, none the wiser!
Ash and Em love to travel, they believe it brightens your eyes to the world at large and challenges and humbles you in ways you could not begin to imagine. In this vein, they separately travelled to South East Asia, and loved it. What they didn’t love was the parasites that their fragile system attracted and harboured, wreaking havoc on their already compromised digestive systems.
So, what to do when you feel like you got the short end of the stick? Make a website, of course!
Instead of holding a pity party (well, there were a few pity parties, they were just short-lived) Ash and Em decided to turn their health challenges into something positive, and in May 2013 on a probably cloudy day in Melbourne, Eatable was born.
Eatable-friendly living is where allergy-friendly kicks into overdrive, to not only make sure your body can tolerate what’s on your plate, but that it brings you the nutrients you need to support you on your luscious journey through life. Eatable is here to help you create a happier relationship with food and your body, one meal at a time.
From humble beginnings in Melbourne, Ash and Em have taken Eatable out into the World arena.
You will now find Ash based in Aarhus, Denmark where she’s studying Global Nutrition and Health and enjoying the North with her lovely boyfriend Fer. As for Em, she quit her PR job, completed her yoga teacher training at Byron Yoga Center in Byron Bay and is now travelling through Europe, hunting down local markets and hidden Eatable-friendly cafes with her loving boyfriend, Dan.

Eatable’s media bio is below.
Eatable is the love child of two friends, Ash and Em, who are intolerant to gluten, dairy, soy and corn. It’s their mission to seek out the best eateries around the World that cater to dietary requirements. They share their knowledge on their website along with recipes, articles and tips. They believe eating healthily is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle.
At Eatable, it’s our mission to make make cooking for yourself healthy, luscious and simple. All of the recipes on Eatable are gluten-, dairy-, soy- and corn-free, with a focus on vegetarian cooking and a vegan options provided. At Eatable we love to cook and create new dishes and relish the challenge of adapting recipes to make them Eatable-friendly. We cook with whole foods, limiting the intake of simple sugars and other nasties that upset our digestive systems.
The founders of Eatable, Ash and Em, share a similar story; both girls are intolerant to gluten, dairy and soy (plus Ash is intolerant to corn) and have had serious run-ins with parasites resulting in weakened digestive and immune systems. They both chose to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing, and they share that journey through Eatable.
Ash and Em want to help others to create their own healthy lifestyle through Eatable. Rather than focusing on all the foods you can’t eat, we want to inspire you get creative with the foods you can eat! Knowing all too well how overwhelming it can be, we keep it as simple as possible and show that creating the healthy lifestyle you want isn’t as scary as it seems.
At Eatable, we believe food is life.
