Why we’re fans: Rachel is an important part of gluten-free advocacy. As a dietitian, she commands attention from the healthcare and food industries, and is a trusted source for gluten-free advice. As a diagnosed celiac, she knows the concerns that patients have about gluten-free needs, because she has them, too. That perspective isn’t just refreshing, it’s also what makes her such a worthy expert on NFCA’s Ask the Dietitian.

Rachel’s Story: I have celiac disease and am a registered dietitian. As The Gluten Free RD, it is my mission to provide those on a gluten-free diet with the information and resources they need to strike a balance between eating gluten-free and healthfully, while doing it happily.

According to Rachel: As a dietitian with a strong knowledge of food and ingredients, it was probably easier for me than most to quickly adopt a strict gluten-free diet.  As a food and nutrition communications professional, whose work revolves around communicating about and experiencing good food, I didn’t anticipate how hard it was going to be emotionally and socially to avoid some of my favorite foods.
