What We Do

welcome to roots and rosemary

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!


Rachel’s Story

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
threatening food allergies. Being informed about the
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!)
