Hi, I’m Kymberley.

So happy you’re here!

Welcome to my gluten-free food, recipe, and “health-forward” #GfreeTogether community!

One of the things I’ve always loved most about food is one of the healthiest things about it—the connections food inspires through gatherings of people, whether gathered at our family table, church potluck, picnic, community dinner, or here on Substack. In the same way, that’s why I’m so happy that you’re here to join me so we can connect.

If you don’t already know me, I’m a Christian, wife, mom, grandma, student, celiac patient, quilter, creative gal and designer, passionate food lover, proud home cook, certified gluten-free practitioner, and gut microbiome specialist, health and lifestyle coach, and the face behind GfreeDeliciously.com.

I began my gluten-free journey when everything I thought I knew about cooking and eating suddenly changed when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

In 2017, I started my blog with the aim of sharing reliable gluten-free recipes (made with affordable ingredients) that others could quickly reproduce in their kitchens without too much fuss. Foods that were re-imagined and prepared a bit differently to eliminate gluten.

My goal became - Food for All Food Lovers, Gathered At The Same Table.

Then, somewhere along the way, I became a self-taught Gfree lifestyle expert on [most] gluten-free things, with a personal and professional mission to find “the sweet spot” where delicious, gluten-free, and healthy meet.

As a person who has always loved cooking and creating delicious foods from scratch for myself and those I love, that intersection evolved into the joyful, flavorful place where I’ve taught myself and hundreds of others to thrive while being gluten-free - keeping us all feeling our best.

I live in what’s known as the Holyland of Central Wisconsin. All the recipes you’ll find here and on my blog are gluten-free and inspired by the people and places I love most. Whenever possible, I cook with seasonal ingredients using whole, non-processed ingredients and foods – Making dishes suitable for everyday life, and yes, “all food lovers gathered at the same table.”

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE my life. And this eNewsletter and my little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish every day GfreeDeliciously!

After being diagnosed with celiac disease in 2011, I returned to school to educate myself about the disease. Along the way, I became a certified gluten-free practitioner, accredited gut microbiome specialist, and health and lifestyle coach.

Here, on Substack, I aim to inspire an appetite to live fully nourished - for better understanding and connecting with ourselves, our bodies, our families, and our faith. Sometimes, that means posts are recipe-heavy, and other times, I may focus on gut health or gluten-free nutrition, food history, food growers or makers, or how-tos. Other times, you’ll find this a gathering place of ideas and inspiration - jumping-off points that showcase everyday experiences and activities. Such as cooking, decorating, gardening, books, faith, devotions, and hospitality - all of which we can use to live fully nourished in the perfect online place for being #GfreeTogether!

It’s here, on Substack, where you can:

  • Have Fun Embracing Your Gluten-Free Food & Lifestyle Freedom.

  • Care for yourself. Connect with a private online community.

Why subscribe?

Subscribe for regular recipes and inspiration to fill your body and soul. You’ll find even more in my notes, chat, and on my main website, along with all the latest in the “Archive” (Secretly, I call it “Revelations” because it’s my journal of everything, and you can’t live in a region called the Holylands without having a few revelations now and then). I’m also on Pinterest.

When you subscribe to this Substack, you won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new installment of my eNewsletter and all the latest recipes go directly to your inbox with a more personal touch—including all the details, guides, info, links, and topics I don’t share anywhere else. It’s a conversation that I hope feels like you’re sitting across the kitchen table from me each week.

Lastly, About Our Paywall

While I don’t relish the idea of paywalls, I do want to promote subscriptions. Because GfreeDeliciously | Live Fully Nourished aims to help everyone improve their gluten-free life and achieve optimal gut health one subscriber at a time, I’ve set monthly recipe and article posts for free subscribers to be available for a reasonable time after publication. After that, the content is paywalled in an archive that is only accessible to paid subscribers.

So, if you find value in accessing all of the recipes and other posts at all times, I need you to do something extraordinary: Support this purposeful work by becoming a paid subscriber. Can you help?

                           Or, leave a tip in any amount to show your support.

Thanks for stopping by - I’m so happy you’re here!
