Are you struggling with vegan and gluten-free food?

I can help you learn to make really enjoyable meals.

The hardest part about changing eating habits is knowing where to start, how to stock a pantry with new or unfamiliar items, redefining staples, locating these new foods, sourcing recipes that work and taste good (this is especially true for vegan & GF baked goods) and learning all of this ASAP, because stomachs are rumbling, and it’s dinner time.

Basically, it’s do-over time, and it can be overwhelming!

When I went GF in 2008, I was already a good cook with 18 years of vegan experience. Even so, there was a lot of trial and error.  I felt rilllly grumpy and resentful about the change, which I had to do to reduce debilitating chronic pain.

Learning how to make tasty GF versions of my favorite comforts like pizza, bagels, flatbreads and baked goods helped get me out of the grumps, but it took awhile. Mostly it involved being patient and learning new skills.

Finding a friendly, supportive community is also definitely helpful! We have one on Facebook, please come join us!

I can help you make delicious vegan and GF food! I’m super friendly, patient, knowledgable and a good teacher.

I offer in person and virtual classes, and if there’s something specific you need help with, let me know!

I have a background in education and the natural foods industry, along with over 32 years of vegan knowledge. I’m also a very seasoned GF baker and cook. Let’s go shopping together, or  I can teach you a few tricks in my kitchen, or virtually.
