The Untold Truth Of Yumna Jawad

Yumna Jawad is America's latest must-watch cook. Sharing viral food hacks and tips from Instagram to TikTok, she runs the popular blog Feel Good Foodie and fans are in love. But before Jawad become TikTok's latest foodie sweetheart, she wasn't even a cook. Yumna Jawad originally studied marketing and branding, specializing in branding, research, and marketing for consumer packaged goods (via Parade). In fact, this food influencer didn't even learn to cook until she got married.

Fortunately, Jawad's mom came to the rescue. Already known for her delicious dishes she spent hours on the phone teaching a younger Yumna how to cook. As she shares on her blog, "I would keep my mom on the phone with me the entire time I would be boiling a pot of soup or cooking rice, just to make sure I got it right. It was good mojo I thought, haha!" Fortunately, though, Jawad began to gain confidence and venture into more exciting and interesting recipes. "I started learning how to a turmeric latte, how to make cauliflower pizza crust and how to make pudding using only chia seeds and milk."

And it's fortunate for us that she did!
