Hi I'm Judee- the recipe developer, photographer, author of the cookbook Easy Plant-Based Soups From Farm To Ladle and author of this blog, Gluten Free A-Z Blog . 

You can email me at:

I'm a vegan and gluten-free cook. For years I taught cooking classes to help families learn to incorporate more plant-based food into their daily menus. At my student's request, I developed family friendly recipes that were tasty, healthy, and quick and easy to make.

If you are looking for super easy recipes that taste great and keep your health and weight in mind, you have come to the right place. 

 I believe that maintaining good health and the road to healing is a physical, spiritual, mental journey. I believe it's important to eat the right food to make sure of getting enough enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals,  thinking positive thoughts, and feeling love and acceptance. 

My Personal Journey: 
Just like many others with gluten intolerance or Celiac disease, I struggled with many unpleasant and painful digestive health issues long before I was actually diagnosed. 

Fifteen years ago when I was finally diagnosed, I had to learn how to eliminate gluten from my diet. In just one month after eliminating all gluten, my symptoms started to disappear , and I started to feel like a new person!

Eating a gluten free diet is not difficult nor unappealing. Today it's easy to find gluten free alternatives. However, simply replacing your favorite foods ( crackers, cereal, bread, cookies, pasta, and other flour products) with specially marked gluten free packaged products that are found in the stores is not always a healthy answer.  

Personally, I try to avoid these packaged " gluten free" commercially prepared packaged foods because they are devoid of healthy enzymes, usually high in sugar and salt , low in fiber, and contain undesirable additives.

 I don't believe commercially prepared foods are the basis of a healthy gluten-free diet (occasionally yes- as part of my regular diet- NO!) 

In an effort to eat a healthy gluten free diet, I have developed and recorded my tips, healthy naturally gluten free recipes, short-cuts and gluten free resources.  

My recipes require real food that is naturally gluten free
There are those that say that recipes that are naturally gluten free don't belong on a gluten free site or in a gluten-free cookbook. To those people I say re-educate yourself - I refuse to encourage the same poor way of eating that got me into this mess. I believe that real food and naturally gluten-free food are the healthy way to eat. 

If you are looking for ways to substitute" gluten-free"processed gluten free ingredients for your processed gluten ingredients, sorry you won't find those unhealthy recipes here! 

Food is my passion. Despite being gluten intolerant and busy. I strive for a healthy balanced lifestyle. It has taken me many years to develop healthy easy recipes that meet gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, and real food standards. 

On this blog I share my journey, my food and weight struggles, my discoveries, and my recipes. I hope you find ideas, resources, and recipes that will be helpful to you.

By the Way -You don't have to be gluten free to love my "normal" real food/ many paleo recipes. I promise--

Please write to me if you have any questions or suggestions.

  1. Hi. i just skimmed through your spring roll recipe. DId you mean 4 cloves garlic, minced (instead
    of ginger) ??? because the next ingred is ginger fingers ....

    Your de-tox soup is fabulous... I make a similar version but add 4 stalks celery, 1 large zucchini,
    4 or 5 asparagus spears (all organic, of course) and since I do not have slow cooker, I just let it simmer 4 or 5 hrs on electric cooktop. celery, zucchini and asparagus have good diuretic properties also...

    Not vegetarian, but enjoy incorporating meatless days into my week ... Thanks for you blog !
