Recipes you’ll put on repeat

We created sam™ for people who like really tasty food. What you can expect from our recipes: ingredients you can find at your local grocery store, recipes that work for rushed weeknights, and endless variety. Imagine savory, tender, delicately spiced pulled pork. Pork that pulls every member of your household to the dinner table as they walk in the door. That’s a sam™ recipe.

Plans created for
people with
chronic conditions

sam™ is culinary medicine—where the art of food preparation meets the science of medicine. Our recipes are designed to improve your chronic condition. Imagine the naturally low in sodium tang of citrus in a skillet helping lower your blood pressure. Or red, ripe strawberries bursting with flavor—and high in antioxidants—on a mug cake fighting your inflammation. Or a breakfast casserole that has your teens requesting seconds and is carb controlled to help manage diabetes.

Created by experts.

Registered and licensed dietitians, Shannon and Allison, saw a gap in treating patients with chronic health conditions. Their patients needed affordable, easily accessible tools to manage chronic health conditions—like diabetes and heart disease. Their patients wanted meal plans, recipes their families actually wanted to eat, and to know the why behind recommended foods. They asked Michelle, a culinary expert, to help develop recipes. And sam™ - the app with 24/7 access, judgment-free help, and food you keep coming back to was born.
