I see that you are enrolled in as a Holistic Nutrition Course….I was wondering where that was. I was an RN and have not practiced for many years. I have now been tested for food allergies…no Gluten, Casein, eggs or sugars….so I really am thinking of taking myself a course to HELP others in my situation to help encourage and teach them cooking classes . I sure have needed that support where I am. Hope you could let me know of any that you considered and why you choose what you have.

Hi Cheryl – I’ve replied to your email 🙂

Hi, Maggie:

I am curious, also: I am finishing up my studies in Orthomolecular Nutrition this year (by September 2012). I am also celiac and find I benefit so much from a gluten-free diet. We don’t drink dairy (my 4-year-old daughter has been drinking almond milk since Day 1). What courses are you enrolled in, and (if I may ask) in which school? I live in Leamington, Ontario and am taking my courses online through CIHS in Milton… will be trying a couple of your sweets recipes soon.. Cheers.

Hi Krystina – I am enrolled in the Holistic Nutrition program at The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. It’s perfect because they’re the only school with a distance program. Let me know if you have any more questions, and enjoy the recipes!

Hey there! I just discovered your site! I’m very intrigued by your nut-free granola bars but I have a teeny problem. My father has nut and peanut allergies and my mom and I have been looking for shelled sunflower seeds to put in our receipes. The problem is, every time we find sunflower seeds, they’re either seasoned with their shells on or they’re in bulk and are not safe for my father to eat (because heavens knows what nuts they’ve come in contact with). Any suggestions? I really have a craving/desire to make these granola bars but I can’t find the ingredients for it.

Christina can order gluten-free shelled raw plain sunflower seeds from, a great company that is dairy and GF.
Can’t wait to try these teff chocolate cookies, thank you.

I truly find your web site beneficial I have a high blood sugar count in my blood that I can control with diet a low carb and sugar free is the way to go I also was told not to eat potatoes because they all turn to sugars and I just can’t digest them I find your recipes very helpful and want to thank you, pat


Maggie September 16, 2012 at 6:30 pm

Thank you so much for telling me Patricia! It means a lot to me. Let me know if you need anything 🙂

You are a Godsend! My daughter is 30 years old has was recently DX with celiac disease…..more testing was done and we just learned she is also highly allergic to milk, eggs, and corn! Wow talk about a new world and new way of cooking!…….. She has always made box,processed, fast food meals……. So you can guess she doesn’t cook. She weighed 230 pounds and could not get the weight off no matter what she did. Since her DX she has lost 40 pounds, but she stays in a depressed state I think due to the loss of her favorite foods. I made your bread last night, but did not have the chi seed so I substituted ground flax seed. I also ran out out flour so I substituted some almond flour… turned out awesome! I am getting over my fear of not having the exact ingredients and just doing it! My next challenge is muffins! Thank you thank you thank you!! Sincerely always a mom no matter how old they are!

Ahhh Rose, thanks so much for this glowing review 🙂 I’m so glad to hear that your daughter is on the mend. I’m sure she’ll be feeling like her new and improved self soon. Thanks for sharing her story and your success. She’s lucky to have you as a momma!
