I’m a cookbook author, vegetable lover, and kitchen chemist. I create grain-free, gluten-free recipes using simple, nutrient-dense ingredients, staying as close to the earth as possible.
I started Comfy Belly to keep track of and share recipes that might help my older son and others. He was diagnosed with an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) when he was about 11 years old. I suspect he had it several years earlier and it took a while to get a diagnosis. We’ve had our share of struggles and triumphs along the way, and have learned to eat well through it all.
We started with a gluten-free diet and went from there. My cookbooks and this website contain hundreds of recipes that work for many lifestyles, and have helped many people get and stay healthy. I’ve learned a lot over the years, and my recipes have transitioned to be mostly plant-focused, grain free, and gluten free. As Maya Angelou said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
Several of the recipes on this site are free, and some of the recipes in my cookbooks are also published here. Sign up for my free newsletter to get updates on recipes and tips. You can get access to all my recipes when you sign up for a paid subscription to Comfy Belly.
My advice to anyone changing the way they eat is: learn how to cook—try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless and above all have fun.” – Julia Child
