About Live Better America

At Live Better America, we know food is key to health and to happiness. That’s why our mission is simple: To provide delicious foods for any diet.


We get it

Whether you have a food allergy, are going gluten free, living with diabetes or are simply trying to eat a little better, you know that dietary change can be difficult. It’s not just about the food you eat (or don’t eat); it’s about making positive lifestyle changes you feel good about sustaining over time. That’s where we come in.

By looking at nutritional modifications as opportunities for creativity – not as limitations – we’ve opened up a whole new world of recipes and food ideas that fit your diet (and that you and your family will actually want to eat). And, if dietary modifications aren’t an issue for you, don’t fret. Our recipes are suited for everyone’s taste buds.

We make it easy to get inspired


We believe living better starts with eating better, and eating better starts with information: recipes, tips and ideas that help you make small, doable changes that add up to a healthier lifestyle.

To help you in your search, each Live Better America recipe is assigned one or more labels designed for different dietary needs: Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Sodium Smart, Cholesterol Smart, Fiber, Healthified, Protein, Vegan, Non Dairy, Low Fat, Low Carb, Sugar Smart, Whole Grain, Calorie Controlled and Healthy (unlike the buzzword you see splashed all over magazine covers, we actually adhere to the rigorous Food and Drug Administration standards of “healthy”).

Beyond recipes, every day we offer up fresh inspiration:

We do the research for you


Unfortunately we can’t join you in the kitchen (that would be fun, though), but we’re committed to providing everything you need to learn, get inspired, then form – and stick to – your new healthful habits. The Live Better America team includes food-loving, nutrition-savvy editors, writers, recipe developers and kitchen experts (including the Kitchens of General Mills, a.k.a. the famous Betty Crocker Kitchens). All recipes and nutritional info get a stamp of approval from our on-staff registered dietitians and nutritionists. Get more information on our contributors here.
