Story behind JENNALIVESWELL
Back when COVID had just started in 2020, I started my foodie Instagram page with the name @healthysimpleglutenfree. At the time, I was struggling with some health issues, specifically those related to digestive issues. I was told by my doctor to try all sorts of different medications, elimination diets, but nothing helped. So that original page was focused on strictly gluten-free meals & products. Before long, this rough time in my life caused me to fall into disordered eating habits. I didn’t know it at the time, but having this outlet for me to be creative and connect with other individuals who were going through similar things was my saving grace.
Since then, my journey with food has come a long way! I am still working on improving my relationship with food, as it gets a little better every day. My account has evolved from just gluten-free foods to a page about wellness. Through the process and recovery, I have developed a passion for all things food: cooking, baking, recipe development, food photography, and everything in between! I now understand what foods my mind and body enjoy & have been creating recipes to satisfy them both!
Thanks for visiting, and I hope you find my feel-good recipes as delicious as I do!
