About Me

Who am I?

To start, I am not a cook (or even a writer), but a girl who simply can’t eat wheat and loves to experiment with new gluten-free foods and recipes.  I started this blog to share my adventures in the kitchen, and my own experiences with different wheat and gluten-free products on the market and just my life in general.

Living a healthy nutritious lifestyle is extremely important to me. I originally started college going to school to be a teacher and eventually found my way into the nutrition program. I have a bachelor’s degree in nutritional science and a master’s degree in marketing. I am the person in the grocery store mesmerized by the new food products, how they advertise, and reading and comparing food labels.

I discovered my wheat intolerance only a couple of years ago. As far back as I can remember fried food made me miserable, brownies made me sick, and I got so used to going to bed at night with a stomach ache. It just became normal to me. As I got older I started feeling worse and much more often, I had frequent headaches and more and more foods seemed to bother my belly…finally I went to the doctor.

For me, feeling better was as simple as cutting out the wheat in my diet. Ok- maybe I shouldn’t say “simple”…. However, I know so many other people out there who have Celiac disease or are completely allergic to gluten, and in comparison I would have to say I have it a little easier. But still, wheat is everywhere; bread, pasta, cereal, soups, sauces, marinades, PIZZA, and pretty much every baked good on the market! However, over the past couple of years I have learned that living a life without wheat is not so bad. I am trying all sorts of new foods, and experimenting with many new products and recipes. Many people who have similar issues ask me what I like to eat…. So here is my blog, Wheat-Freedom.

Happy reading!



Although I am specifically intolerant to wheat, I would say 95% of everything I eat is completely gluten-free. The recipes and products included in my blog will specify if they are gluten-free or only wheat free. Also, with so many of my friends and family members following specialty diets these days I am trying to include some dairy-free, yeast-free, and vegan options too!
