Diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and multiple food and environmental allergies 25 years ago, Shirley has learned through personal experience how hard it is to change your life for the better.
Shirley understands first-hand the difficulties of trying to plan creative, nutritious, and affordable menus while having to avoid such common foods as wheat, dairy, eggs, corn, gluten, and sugar—just to name a few. But through understanding, education, and a keen interest to help people find food alternatives to fit into their life schedules, Shirley has developed an expertise and well known reputation in dietary design.
Shirley is the food editor for General Store Publishing House Inc. and the author of Finally… Food I Can Eat!, an inspirational dietary guide and cookbook for people with food allergies and food intolerance.
