About me

Location United States
Introduction Microbiologist by training, mother by desire, research hound by need. Author of the radical parenting primer: "Compassionate Souls -- Raising the Next Generation to Change the World" and "Get Off Gluten!" HEALTHY gluten free/dairy free recipes that taste great! New research suggests that about 2/3 of Americans are genetically predisposed to become gluten sensitive, most have no idea gluten is causing them an autoimmune reaction -- which, if they keep consuming gluten, may increase their likelyhood of other autoimmune diseases, cancers and nutritional deficiencies.
