Hi, I'm Shauna!

I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2015, following years of chronic symptoms and unexplained illness. It was a tough pill to swallow for an Italian Canadian and lover of all things pizza and pasta, but I was relieved to finally have answers.


Amazing, I thought. I'll stick to a gluten-free diet and have more pep to my step in no time...not quite!

Five years have passed, and I'm still discovering new things, about my body and this disease, including the 300 known symptoms associated with it. Some days it feels like I've experienced all 300 of them.

Maybe something I've learned along my journey can help you with yours?

Cooking with beautiful, whole foods has become a passion of mine, so all of the recipes on the blog are made with simple ingredients and lots of veggies. Everything's gluten-free, dairy-free, corn-free, soy-free, canola-free and refined sugar-free, too. 

I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada with my hubby, London and our cute pup, Zeus. I share more of the behind the scenes over on instagram - come say hello!
