Smart Nutrition Backed by Science
Gluten-Free Living Expert, Gigi Stewart, M.A., is passionate about sharing her signature “Smart Nutrition Backed by Science” insights and practical strategies about how anyone can transform their health solely through the foods they eat.
Drawing from her professional background as a behavioral neuroscience researcher specializing in chronic inflammatory pain and natural products research, Gigi looks at nutrition different from most.
She sees nutrition from the inside out – and answers the question “What do the foods we eat do inside our bodies?”
It is this unique, fact-based approach to nutrition, combined with her personal experience living with Celiac disease and multiple food allergies, that gives Gigi insight into the nutrition of many special diets few are able to offer.
It All Started with the Food
After enduring 25 years of unexplained chronic pain and a frightening array of misdiagnoses ranging from lupus to leukemia, Gigi took her health into her own hands by seeking real, fact-based answers to heal her body naturally.
Those answers were found in food.
Although Gigi’s diet was healthy, even by the most stringent standards, it was not healthy for her. That’s because it contained gluten (and other food allergens – like dairy, soy, peanuts and tree nuts – as she would learn after going gluten-free).
As Gigi began to educate herself about Celiac disease, gluten and what this protein in wheat and related grains does to the body, she knew a food transformation was on the horizon.
In 2007, after years of baking – both at home and professionally – Gigi eliminated gluten from her diet and took to the kitchen with a whole new set of ingredients to recreate family favorites and develop brand new recipes anyone would enjoy eating.
Two years later, encouraged by friends and family to share her recipes with others who may need them, GlutenFreeGigi.com was born. At first, it was only about the recipes, but Gigi knew she had much more to offer about how properly managing diet directly impacts our overall health and wellness.
It was her passion to share more than just how to make delicious gluten-free food. Gigi wanted to share how the foods we eat can literally change our health. After all, that is exactly what she did to heal her own body. That is how “Smart Nutrition Backed by Science” came to be.
From how to toast sunflower seeds to how to halt the progression of osteoporosis, Gigi continues to create valuable resources to serve the gluten-free community.
