I’m Dee and I’ve been a foodie all my life. I love to eat, cook, bake talk and read about food. I have also suffered with horrible case of sinusitis, including recurring nasal polyps.
Three years ago, I changed my eating habits in an attempt to manage my sinus issues.
Learning about my gluten and dairy intolerance was devastating , overwhelming. I felt betrayed by my body, depressed. Going gluten free isn’t easy and when one intolerance is combined with another (like a dairy sensitivity), eating well can be quite a challenge. Gluten and Dairy seem to be in every convenience food there is.
My passion for cooking quickly turned to frustration… Every trip I took to the grocery store became a slow exercise in label reading. Every meal took longer to plan and execute. Grabbing take out, restaurants were definitely off limits. My family missed my baking so, I became determined to cook and bake all my old favourites, without any gluten or dairy.
Hundreds of recipes and thousands of hours later, all of the meals I cook are gluten and dairy free. The best part is that my family can’t tell.
Helping others transition to and maintain a gluten free lifestyle along with all the recipes I’ve created, gathered and transformed are the inspiration behind Dee’Lectables. Let me help you live slower, worry less and most of all eat good food.
