Hi there, I'm Jenna a.k.a. No Whey Lady!
Food and myself haven't always gotten along. I have a highly sensitive body and live with multiple food allergies and intolerances. Events that are supposed to be fun, community building, cultural, and family oriented are often stress inducing for this reason. I must constantly ask what is in the food, how it was prepared, etc. I first created this site as a place where I could chronicle my dairy-free, gluten-free, corn-free recipes, travel tips, and musings...but it has transformed into something more than that.
Since starting NO WHEY LADY, I have graduated from Bauman College's Nutrition Consultant program (and am on the road to becoming a certified holistic nutritionist), gone off my hormonal birth control pill, have gone on and off the Low FODMAP diet, have lost // regained my cycle // gone through many whacky, imbalanced anovulatory cycles, have restored my libido, and have started programs to help heal others who are living with similar issues.
While I use real food as a tool, this journey has to do with a whole lot more than just what you put in your mouth. It has to do with the mind, the body, and the spirit, too. Movement, mental state, and lifestyle choices paired with the proper food and mental fuel have changed and continue to change my life for the better and I'm so excited to share my expanded journey with you.
If you can identify with anything I ever post, please tell me! There is nothing better than connecting with someone over a weird, uncomfortable, or even funny situation or lifestyle choice! Looking forward to connecting and potentially working with you.
