Hi There! I’m EA, aka The Spicy RD

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), health and wellness Coach, gluten-free recipe creator, digestive health expert, autoimmune warrior, and vibrant aging enthusiast. I’m so glad you’re here!

EA Stewart, Registered Dietitian in kitchen.

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. I aim 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. Listening to my body made me realize that a gluten-free, anti-inflammatory diet helps 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 two college-age children, SiSi, & Big Tex to be kind, caring, compassionate individuals my greatest accomplishment.

One day, when I retire, 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!
