What We Do
I create a variety of healthy vegetarian and vegan recipes, plus a few indulgent desserts as well!
I share my life experiences with food allergies and strive to spread awareness for the condition. The more we’re educated the safer we can be!
I love working with companies and bloggers who share my clean eating philosophy. Contact me if you have ideas about working together!
Growing up in the Wisconsin countryside, I developed a
passion to know where my food comes from. I also made a
habit of reading every single food label due to my life

ingredients in processed foods, combined with the knowledge
of growing and making my own, I embarked on my clean eating
journey. In 2016, I launched my blog Roots and
Rosemary where I share unique recipes, clean eating tips,
and food allergy insights. (I’m also a strong believer in
desserts in moderation as long as they’re made from scratch
with the highest quality ingredients!)
