I’m a cookbook author, vegetable lover, and kitchen chemist. I create recipes using simple, nutrient-dense ingredients, staying as close to the earth as possible. My recipes are plant-focused, mostly dairy free, gluten & grain free, easy & delicious!
I started this website in November 2008 as a way to keep track of and share recipes that might help my older son and others. He was diagnosed with Crohn’s, an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), when he was about 11 years old. Like many with IBD, I suspect he had it several years earlier and it took a while to get a correct 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 then found the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) and went from there.
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
