I deconstruct and rebuild recipes to make them vegan and gluten-free. I’ve been vegan since 2010 and gluten-free since 2011, the former due to egg and dairy intolerances and spiritual reasons, and the latter due to gluten intolerance. I began this blog to answer the “What the hell do you eat?” question right before the rashes and digestive upset drove me to be gluten-free in Spring 2011.
As for qualifications for doing what I do, I am a multiply-certified health coach with certifications from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, and the Catalyst Coaching Institute. If you are interested in working with me to build healthy habits, click the coaching tab. I also earned my BA in Religion from Princeton University in 2012 with minors in Creative Writing and Judaic Studies.
Besides recipe R&D, I explore cemeteries. My reading stack next to my bed usually includes scriptures from various traditions, comics, cookbooks, and speculative fiction. I write poetry. My wardrobe features inappropriate t-shirts (including the one in the photo above). An empty dance floor is an opportunity, no drinks necessary. Ardha Matsyendrasana is my favourite yoga pose. Walking lets my mind work in ways I can’t begin to explain. My collections include plush cats, Legos, and Monster High Dolls. I currently reside in Northern Colorado with my husband, TC.
