If you are dealing with gluten issues, autoimmune disease, looking for healthy tips, or just need some new recipes; you are in the right place. 

My gut health journey started when I was born  premature and narrowly survived necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). I began a quest to improve my health started in 2008. My dad had a heart attack at the age of 49 and I was given a stern wake up call. I became obsessed about learning more about health and food. Since 2008, my quest has taken me through many eating plans -  vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, gluten free, dairy free, and egg free. In 2012, I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Shortly after, I realized that I could not tolerate lactose or casein. I then threw away all my Beano (it used to contain gluten) and settled into my gluten free, dairy free adventure while still being pescatarian. Miracles of miracles the cystic acne that I have been fighting since I was 13 vanished.

A few more years down the road and two children later my dental health was suffering. After having an abscessed root canal removed I decided to make diet changes again. I decided to bring meat and eggs back into my diet. Now after many detox diets, nutrition resets, elimination diets and supplements; I have discovered that I do best with little sugar and minimal grains. I worked with a functional medicine doctor to improve overall health and discovered I also have SIBO. Now after treatment I focused on a sugar free and grain free life...aka paleo.
 Did you know that your gut impacts your health in HUGE ways?! Check out my blog posts to learn more. 

After years of experimenting with different kinds of cooking and assisting friends and family with different ways of cooking and shopping I have decided to share my knowledge in hopes of helping others. Autoimmune issues are frustrating enough, you don't need the added stress of not knowing what is safe to cook or how to cook it. Trust me, spending $20 on a specialized bag of flour, only to have your recipe flop; is beyond frustrating! Not knowing how to meal prep and falling back on old patterns can be deadly. What about the items in or around your home that might be making you sick?

Come along with me as I help you navigate the bumpy road of your new lifestyle. Are you ready to have the healthy life you desire? Join my community of Gluten Free Ladies, we will provide support, share recipes and help you avoid all the ruts along the way!
