Hi There! I’m EA, aka The Spicy RD
Integrative Dietitian Nutritionist, Health & Wellness Coach, Gluten-Free Blogger, Digestive Health Expert, Autoimmune Warrior, & Vibrant Aging Enthusiast. I’m so glad you’re here!
Do you want to bridge the gap between great health & delicious food? I’d love to work with you!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE what I do…working with amazing people like YOU, to help you discover your own optimal balance of “feel-good-foods” + exercise you love + a holistic approach to living so you can live your healthiest, happiest, most DELICIOUS life!
Does all the conflicting nutrition advice on the internet drive you crazy? Me too!
No one diet (or lifestyle) fits all. My goal is to help YOU figure out what works best for YOUR body.
My nutrition philosophy is simple…
A healthy diet is built upon whole, fresh, minimally processed ingredients, with room to enjoy your favorite foods. Life’s too short not to eat the damn cookie!
Nourishment is more than getting the right balance of macro-and micronutrients! Cooking, eating and sharing meals with family and friends, celebrating your family’s heritage and traditional foods, and savoring your favorite indulgences from time-to-time are all part of your “feeling delicious” equation!
Like many of you, I’ve struggled with my health, dabbled in different diets, and have finally discovered what works for me. By listening to my body, I’ve figured out that a gluten-free, Mediterranean diet makes me feel my best. The diet that makes YOU feel your best may be different~I’m here to help you figure it all out!

Let’s get personal (the fun stuff!)
I’m married to an incredible, supportive husband, aka Mr. Spicy, and consider raising my 2 children, SiSi (20), & Big Tex (18) to be kind, caring, compassionate individuals, my greatest accomplishment. If I can get them to eat a spinach salad every now and then, even better 🙂
One day when I’m retired, I’d love to live on a goat farm with Mr. Spicy. He dreams of living near a ski resort in Montana. I’m looking forward to whatever adventure awaits us!
My happy things: Hiking, tennis, snow skiing, walking my pups, traveling the world, photography, interior design, nature, and the great outdoors. Join me on Instagram for more fun adventures!
If you’re here for the first time and are struggling with your own autoimmune or other health condition, I encourage you to read about how I regained my health, and know that I am here to help!
