Caitlin Boyer — Personal Plant-Based & Allergy-friendly Chef

Caitlin’s true passion and love has always been food, nothing makes her more happy than to feed people. A vegetarian since 2002 and a vegan for the past 6 years, Caitlin believes eating an organic, plant-based diet is the key to health and a fulfilling life. She has always been fascinated with experimenting with foods and their flavors, she is constantly coming up with new recipes and testing them out on her family and friends.  Caitlin’s love for food doesn’t stop there, she is also an organic gardener and believes that it is important for a chef to know where and how there food gets to their plate.  “So much love and good energy goes into the food I make, especially when I know I grew and cared for the food myself.”-Caitlin Boyer

She loves educating people about the healing properties of food.  In addition to being skilled in the art of cooking she is an active animal rights activist, enjoys playing music, traveling, and sewing. Caitlin would be  thrilled to share her true love of conscious plant based cooking with you and your loved ones.

ALLERGY-FRIENDLY COOKING

It is very important to be able to take any ingredient and find a substitution for it, if necessary.  Especially now a days because people are finding that most of their physical and metal issues are being triggered by “food allergies”.  Some of the most common food allergies out there are: Gluten, Dairy, Eggs, Corn, Soy, Shellfish, Fish, Yeast, Peanuts, and Tree nuts (brazil, almond, walnuts, cashew, hazelnut)

My mission is to take into account your food sensitivities and make you something wonderful without feeling as though you are missing out on the foods that you love!  Instead, you will enjoy all these delightful flavors, textures, smells, and nutritional benefits without the allergic reaction.
