I have asked my friend Nancy to share her advice and recipes on gluten free cooking Thrive Life. Check out her blog Self Reliant Mama for more recipes and strategies.
Hi! I’m Nancy and I love to teach and eat good food!
I have spent the last 19 years as a professional cake decorator and before my youngest chef was born, I taught Wilton Method cake decorating classes for 9 years. I really enjoy sharing my skills with others. I have two chefs in training of my own, Kylee who is 11 and Cody who is 9. Kylee loves fruits and baking, and Cody loves mushrooms and stirring whatever is in the pot!
I love any food that includes bacon! Even desserts! Although I feel health and nutrition are keys to a happy life, it’s good to splurge once in a while with good ol’ greasy bacon. Being in the bakery industry for so long has built my passion for the good stuff, desserts, but it has also built my passion for food in general. We all need to eat, so why not eat good?
I have a vested interest in special dietary needs such as gluten/grain free, dairy free, sugar free and allergy friendly. I drastically changed my diet after being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in early 2015 and have kept myself off medication and out of the hospital. I strongly believe in the healing power of food. I will take my ever expanding knowledge and experience and share them with this community. I love learning and sharing new ideas to help others thrive through dietary restrictions.
Here are some inspirational recipes that keep the flavor and ditch the allergens.
