In 2007 Dawn’s life was was changed forever when her daughter, Charlotte received a definitive diagnosis of Dravet’s Syndrome and her infant son, JT was diagnosed with Hirschsprung’s Disease within the same week. In 2010, Charlotte began treatment with the ketogenic diet and experienced her first seizure free day in over 5 years. Enduring these trials has inspired her to reach out to as many families as possible, helping them understand how to incorporate ketogenic cooking into their everyday lives. Dawn is co-author of “The Keto Cookbook” and has since heard from many families whose lives have been touched by the ketogenic diet. Dawn has now created ketocook.com as a resource for “parents helping parents” find ideas and inspiration for ketogenic meals. Please e-mail Dawn at email@example.com if you would like to become a recipe contributor or even just submit a few of your favorites!
Tiffany started making keto meals for her daughter Clara in 2010, after Clara’s diagnosis with Infantile Spasms. While tough at times, managing between the strict requirements of the diet, Clara’s very sophisticated sense of taste, an older daughter whose overwhelming enthusiasm to help is only rivaled by her ability to make a much bigger mess in the process, and a dog who is determined to eat Clara’s leftovers to the detriment of her own waistline, Tiffany is grateful that her hands are being used to heal Clara. Tiffany hopes this website would be especially helpful to those working or single moms who do not have the time to design and try out new meals. You can e-mail Tiffany at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or ideas that you would like to share with her. Bon appetit to all the keto kids in the world!
