Jillian Hastings, head of business development for HowUDish, explains how the new app works. HowUDish allows users to find meals that work for their diets, no matter where they are.

Hastings explains how her team pulls nutritional information from multiple databases in order to give users the most up-to-date meal info possible. She says the app is adding roughly 9,000 restaurants in the New York area.

After getting her start in the fashion world, Hastings says she learned how to be an entrepreneur while at Kate Spade. Hastings also reveals that HowUDish is launching a social network soon to help users connect with dietitians in their area.
