Hello friends, welcome to YumUniverse, a business dedicated to helping people make informed choices about the food that they eat—without compromising taste.
Never. Diet. Again. And discover the health and happiness YU have always wanted.
Now, when we say “diet” around here, we mean what you eat for life—daily nourishment—not a temporary regimen that you will end up resenting or dumping. YumUniverse is for folks who love food and want to take their health to the next level. And let’s face it, to stick with a healthy lifestyle, it has to be yummy and fun.
Founded by master whole food, plant-based recipe developer and T. Colin Campbell certified plant-based health coach, Heather Crosby, YumUniverse is dedicated to being the ultimate homebase for anyone interested in incorporating creative, clean, plant-based foods into their diet.
YumUniverse is all about making informed food choices work, for a variety of people. Busy people. People with budgets. People with families. People who are overwhelmed with what is involved with diet changes or diet maintenance. People who want to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes. People who want to age beautifully into their 80s, 90s and 100s. People who don’t want to give up certain foods, but want ideas about what can be done with veggies. People like YU (yes, you).
No matter what YU label yourself—vegan, vegetarian, nutritarian, fruitarian, flexitarian, pescetarian, paleo or even a Skinny Bitch—more plant-powerful foods incorporated into our diet is better for us all. I bet medical pros, holistic practitioners and YU can all agree.
YumUniverse provides healthful options, incredible resources and infinite inspiration for curious and dedicated people.
YumUniverse is here to help you along the way—providing you with infinite possibilities, creativity and support so YU don’t feel alone in your journey.

Where can you start?
Well, if you want to climb a mountain, you just start climbing. You. Just. Start. You’ll get to the top eventually—not immediately. You’ll wind around, run into obstacles, you’ll have simple, amazing discoveries along the way. Eventually you’ll reach the top and that view! Wow, the view! You did it! You’ll be able to see why it was worth the scratches, the sore muscles, the unexpected detours.
Then maybe out of nowhere, you may slip and fall a bit. Or you may lose your way. BUT. You know what that view is and you now know that you can get there, so you dust off and start climbing again. Eventually, you will have blazed a pretty solid trail for yourself with all those climbs and falls. It will become so easy for you to reach the top sooner each time and you will learn the best way to get there.
Taking on a plant-based diet is also like learning a whole new language. That’s another good way to think about it. Remember, we’ve spent a lifetime doing things a certain way. A new language can be so exotic and may seem out of reach—something you want to learn, but it takes practice. With each new word that you learn, you gain confidence. Once you start communicating with this new language, you become excited and you want to learn more. You meet others who speak this language (hello). It becomes easier. Effortless. Fun, even.
Start small. Be proud of your accomplishments and eventually “overwhelmed” will be in the rear view mirror. Before you know it, you’ll realize that you are having fun with this.

Make your health a priority (which you are already doing if YU are here reading this). Be nice to yourself. If you can only make a few changes a week, or if you fall off the wagon, pat yourself on the shoulder, say “that’s my process” and then get back on the wagon—guilt-free. This is a journey. Each step forward, no matter how small, is a step in the right direction and YumUniverse can help make that road a bit easier and definitely enjoyable.
