Nourish Kitchen and Bakery
"Alissa Lees was exhausted. She hadn’t been feeling well for ages, but despite tweaking her diet (more vegetables) and activities (more workouts) she wasn’t getting better. Her doctor ran some tests, and Lees was diagnosed with celiac disease. She had to stop eating all foods containing gluten—basically anything with wheat, barley or rye flour. No big deal, Lees thought, and as soon as she gave them up, her health began to improve.
Then, one morning on her way to work, she thought she’d grab a coffee and something to eat, maybe a muffin, at the coffee shop near her gym. All of the baking, however, contained gluten. “But there were five or six other places on the way, so I thought I’d just stop in at the next one,” she recalls. “I stopped at every place, and there was nothing I could eat, except for a really sweet macaron.” She’d just finished a hard workout, and didn’t want to blow it all on sugary, empty calories, so she ate nothing, but she did hatch a plan. When she got home, she began to experiment, making wholesome, gluten-free treats. “Too much gluten-free bread tastes like cardboard. You toast it and it’s like warm cardboard,” she says. “I wanted to make something that I could eat, that actually tasted good.”
