I am often asked about my diet and how I stay trim with my hectic schedule and frequent travel so I thought I would write a little blurb about it here:

I have allergies to both gluten and dairy – which, when I found out, seemed like a life sentence as I am of Italian heritage and grew up eating mainly these two things!  Luckily, the Paleo revolution has brought a ton of substitutes to market and more than ever I have wonderful options to choose from.   I am lucky enough to have a personal chef on most days to accommodate my cooking with a restricted diet.  If you are in the Tucson area and would like to set something up – I highly recommend “The Quirky Cowboy.”  He is currently in transition from word-of-mouth recommendations to an online presence – so keep your eyes peeled for great recipes and YouTube tutorials or feel free to contact him directly for customized dishes or to cater one of your local events. He will even host an event in your home if you wish!

I met this goddess, “The Cookie Bar Queen” at a casting call in Phoenix and HIGHLY recommend her delicious products!  Her gluten and dairy free cookies are some of the best that I have ever had! See for yourself, you will not be disappointed.

Another staple in the household, are protein powders and superfoods from “Smart138.”  They have a multitude of products to cater to various diets including allergy-free options.
