Who I am…

My name is Megan and I am Middle School Athletic Director and Health and Physical Education Teacher in Pennsylvania   I love my job. I get to work with young adults every day and share my passion for fitness, health and sports. I get to teach yoga, Pilates, rock climbing, etc and all about health issues.  My passion is my work and my play.  I enjoy doing all sorts of outdoor activities; hiking, biking, running, etc.  I really enjoy competing in endurance activities: marathon/triathlon.  I enjoy racing half-ironman 70.3  and marathons.  I love endurance events.

I have been eating dairy-free since 2010, and gluten-free since the beginning of 2011.  I stopped eating gluten when my stomach issues got worse and I was having major digestive issues.  Ever since going gluten free, I have felt better overall.  It is good that I like to cook, because not eating wheat-products can be very overwhelming.

I am keeping a blog about my Dairy-free, Gluten-free cooking adventures; I will post recipes I have tried and enjoy, restaurants who accommodate my dietary needs, and information about my training.   Hopefully,  you will find this useful if you are also struggling with food-allergy issues, or just want some really yummy recipe ideas.

Enjoy!

  1. I love this blog! I have been gluten free since July 2011 and I am feeling much better. I have run a few races before but this year I’m training for my first tri. Thank you for posting recipes for me to try while training. It is hard to find food that is healthy and gluten free. Maybe eating like you will improve my speed 🙂

    • Alexis, thank you for your comment and I am glad that you are enjoying my blog! Being gluten-free is definitely a challenge, but well worth it! Good luck in your first tri (which one are you doing?)

      • I just signed up for the Go Girl Tri in Indianapolis. Its a sprint tri and I am hoping to run another marathon (my first since my belly issues started) in October.

  2. You forgot to mention that you inspire us middle age women too. I think of you every time I try (ha) yoga or do something nice for my health. You instill health values and better choices – don’t forget it!
