Meet The Founder

Hello! I'm Janae Cox, a wife, and mom to five wonderful kids. My journey into the world of clean eating and living a gluten and dairy-free lifestyle began with my own health struggles. In 2014, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and shortly after, PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome). These diagnoses were life-changing, but they also sparked a passion in me to find and share solutions that make living with these conditions easier.

Shortly after Cealiac Disease forced my lifestyle to change I started an Instagram page called @cleanmondaymeals. Initially, it was just a space for me to share my gluten-free meal prep ideas, with no expectations of it becoming anything more. But it grew into a vibrant community of like-minded individuals who are all striving to eat healthier and feel better.

Together, we can make clean eating a delicious and effortless part of our lives. Let's nourish our bodies and thrive together!

With love,
Janae Cox

More About Janae

I come from a long line of Italian heritage, so you know we love our food. I say I was raised in Orem Utah but I also lived for a few years in Rexburg Idaho. I am a mother to five children Kolbie 15, McCoy 14, Weslie 10, Scottie 5, Cove 4, and a wife to an amazing husband, Kevin. My life long dream was to become a mother, but before that happened, to pay the bills, I worked as a Dental Assistant.

Several years ago, I started a simple Instagram page called @cleanmondaymeals with zero expectations of it growing into anything other than my place to share all my gluten-free meal prep ideas. You see, I haven’t been gluten-free my whole life. In 2014, after the birth of my third child Weslie I couldn't regain my health. I just couldn’t seem to get back to my normal self. I was constantly sick and after months of debilitating stomach pains, and other issues I needed answers. I was misdiagnosed several times, changed doctors, and finally, through a biopsy of the small intestine, they confirmed the celiac diagnosis.

I am frequently asked what my symptoms were so I’ll list out the major ones: 

  • Weight gain
  • Weight loss
  • Acne
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Infertility
  • Bloating
  • Stomach pains
  • Hair loss
  • Malnourishment

After starting my new gluten-free lifestyle, I quickly realized how overwhelming it all is and can be. I assumed I wasn’t alone, and every time I found a fantastic product or got a new recipe to work, I had to share it. Those simple posts are what has led me to here. Crazy right?

I have been very blessed, and try to remind myself of that every day because I too am not without trials. I am learning to live with Celiac Disease, PCOS, and all of the problems those illnesses offer.

I never imagined I'd be creating cookbooks, let alone getting my products on store shelves. My journey started simply from a desire to give back to those facing the same struggles I have—and continue to face. Whether you're tackling gluten-free or dairy-free eating, or just trying to serve your family healthy, delicious meals, we're all in this together!

I absolutely love meal prepping and finding ways to make life easier. Being a mom with and having a daughter with an autoimmune disease is challenging enough, and I hope that by sharing what works for us, I can inspire and assist you on your journey, no matter where you are.

The recipes and tips I share come from real experiences, and I promise to only endorse products I truly believe in and would invest my own money on them.

Remember, the more we share and support each other, the more we all thrive. I'm excited to be on this journey with you!

With love,

Janae Cox
