About Us

Our founder

Tayla van Melsen’s fitness and nutrition journey began in her teenage years. Her fervent love for what made her feel good – from nutritious foods to the effects of endorphins after a good run – is what became the driving force behind her passion for healthy food and fitness.


When Tayla first started TaylaMade Meals, she had a simple concept in mind: to make nutritious, healthy, and delicious meals that are easily accessed by all. A rather simple concept, borne out of her own life experiences, having seen firsthand the importance of eating well to live a happier, more fulfilling life.


Many of us lead very fast-paced lifestyles and work long days, making healthy meals that much harder to prepare after a long day. At the end of the day, our bodies, mental health, and fitness take a backseat – often followed by obesity, high blood pressure, depression, anxiety disorders, heart attacks, and so on… Tayla realises that we all have a lot on our plates these days and that it becomes difficult to prioritize everything. Tayla wanted to develop a brand that enables our health to once again be at the forefront, without the stress, time, and energy required for it. TaylaMade Meals is here to nourish you and enable your journey to the healthiest version of yourself.


Now everyone has the power to eat Delicious, healthy food that nourised the body inside and out.
