About the Creator

Hi! My name is Uma Nachiappan, and I'm a Type 1 diabetic from Singapore. I created T1Buddies because I love food (who doesn't?) and I wanted to support and unite the T1D community in Singapore and around the world. I noticed that there were not a lot of resources and organizations focused on Type 1 where I live, so I decided to combine food and community into one platform, and T1Buddies was born. I hope you love this collaborative cookbook as much as I do! ♥

A huge thank you to Chef Devagi Sanmugam (also known as the Spice Queen, and an author of over 20 cookbooks) for guiding and supporting me throughout the development of T1Buddies. You can find her on Facebook and Instagram, and some of her recipes are featured in T1Buddies!
