Jennifer Cuevas 
The Gluten & Grain Free Gourmet supports delicious eating that is gluten, grain, soy, and poultry free. Jen Cuevas experienced her own journey to wellness by eating this way, and desires to share the message that life can still be delicious! Just a few short years ago, Jen was ill with a multitude of issues (although not typical “Celiac” symptoms), including high cholesterol, pre-diabetes, sudden weight gain [over 60 pounds], Hashimoto’s, and arthritis (read more of her story here). After more than seven frustrating visits with various doctors, she finally learned about her gluten sensitivity and Celiac disease. In becoming well, she found that life without gluten was really great from a health perspective, but affected everything else that had a social factor.

Brooke is a graduate of the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, CO. Previous to her nutrition training, Brooke was a professional actress. She spent a lot of time traveling, and in order to maintain her health, she became an avid nutrition reader. This led to formal schooling, and a passion for helping people integrate nutrition into all their varied lifestyles. She has a special interest in digestive and immune system wellness. Brooke aims to create a warm, supportive environment for you to learn and integrate positive healthy changes into your life at a reasonable pace. She not only addresses diet, but also lifestyle, exercise, and overall vitality.
