Have you or your child just been diagnosed with Celiac disease? Or perhaps you believe you are gluten sensitive and want to try a gluten-free diet?
These are MAJOR life milestones and ones that can be daunting and overwhelming. As a Registered Dietitian with both personal experience going gluten-free and specialized knowledge about this diet, I am here to help.
Below are some of the services I offer.
Going gluten-free not only requires a change in what you eat, but it requires changes to your physical environment as well in order to avoid cross-contamination. An in-home consultation will allow me to tailor solutions to your specific individual and family needs.
