About Rachael Gilchrist

I am passionate about food and nutrition. I am an educator and a Nutritional Therapist. I love to cook and believe that everyone should be able to enjoy eating no matter what their sensitivities around food may be. Food is as an integral part of our culture and bringing people and community together. It's meant to enjoyed. If I can play a small part in helping others feel more comfortable with their food sensitivities and keep them connected to others, then I've accomplished my purpose in this blog.
