Hi, I'm Sally, a classically trained chef, recipe developer, author, speaker, and certified health and nutrition coach. Food and cooking is my passion and my website is where I share my recipes and life knowledge with you to support your journey to healthy eating, better nutrition, and well-being because food truly is medicine.
All our lives are food centric because we've got to eat! Food as fuel, food for comfort, food to celebrate, to nourish, to heal. It’s in the kitchen that we come together and the best things in life happen.
When you're a trained chef, people always ask "what's your speciality?". I'd have to say it's special diets. My own food sensitivities and health challenges drove me to experiment and fine tune my diet, but the years I cooked professionally my clients needed special diets. Whether the needs were gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian or due to professional sports trainers or medical doctors, that is who gravitated towards me.
Being diagnosed Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitive (NCGS) over a decade ago was a surprise. I eat gluten-free, focusing on fresh whole foods, including lots of plants, nuts, seeds, healthy fats and quality proteins. I lost weight, detoxed from heavy metals, Lyme and mold, learned to manage histamine intolerance (HIT) and Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), and recover from gut dysbiosis. It's amazing what food can do! But if you're dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian, histamine intolerant, I'm here to help you, because I understand how frustrating it can be.
I hope this website will be a resource for you in your journey, because healthy is a lifestyle. And it’s about more than food; it’s about using fitness, faith, well-being and balance to live your best life. Please join me. It's more doable and more enjoyable when we do it together.
