Welcome! I’m Erica and Comfy Belly is my growing collection of recipes, interviews, and tips.
I create recipes that are easy to make at home. I use simple, nutrient-dense ingredients, staying as close to the earth as possible. My older son was diagnosed with Crohn’s in 2005, which inspired me to start Comfy Belly. Many of the recipes here have helped him heal.
You’ll find recipes for digestive health, clean eating, and special diets. My recipes are some combination of gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-fee, sugar-free, and low-sugar.
Comfy Belly has been optimized for desktop, tablet, and mobile platforms, with special thanks to August Elements.
A bit more about me…
I’m a bit of a geek and a lover of animals, vegetables, a good piece of chocolate and a good story. I have an undergraduate degree in chemistry, a graduate degree in math & science education, and I’m a writer and tech industry veteran.
Whether you are feeding yourself, your family, or friend, it signifies the importance of health, comfort and love. Food is our connection to all living things on earth and to each other. Take part in caring for the earth, for each other, and love your body and mind with all you have.
Please note that I’m offering up recipes and anecdotes from my personal experience which I hope you find helpful. I’m not offering health care and I’m not qualified to do so. If you are considering a dietary, exercise, or other lifestyle change, it’s a good idea to check in with a health professional for support.
