Hi! I’m Erica. Comfy Belly is a place for me to track and share my recipes. I’m a writer and cookbook author. I’m also a bit of a geek and a lover of animals, vegetables, a good piece of chocolate and a good story.
I use simple ingredients, staying as close to the earth as possible. My older son was diagnosed with Crohn’s in 2005 and many of the recipes here have helped him heal.
My recipes are great for digestive health, weight management, and clean eating. Most of my recipes are gluten-free and grain-free. Recipes are listed by ingredient and by type, including:
- Paleo, SCD, GAPS
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.
Eat well, be well.
A bit more about me… I have an undergraduate degree in Chemistry and a graduate degree in Math and Science Education. I’ve taught tennis, chemistry, physics and math, and I have over 20 years of experience in the technology and publishing industry, making products easy to understand and use. I’m obsessed with great tasting, nutritious, real food. I’m a member of IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) and APPCA (American Personal & Private Chef Association). As a cookbook author, writer and technophile I’m enjoying the convergence of these areas and hope I’m helping to make the world a better place. It’s a great time to be alive!
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.
