Hi! I’m Alyssa! A multi-passionate entrepreneur based in Nashville, TN. I’m a mediator, facilitator, conflict consultant (see here), skin care consultant, and part time nanny. On top of all that, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two dogs, taking barre classes (the best studio in town is Neighborhood Barre), kayaking, hammock hanging, gardening, game nights, chai tea lattes, and spiralizing!
A long, arduous health journey led me to discover an intolerance to gluten in early 2016 and forever changed the way I consumed food. At first, I avoided eating out because it was so difficult to navigate menus and find restaurants that offered gluten free options beyond meat and veggie sides or salads. Nashville is the south – the land of biscuits, bread, and meat and threes – and proud of it. Our food scene was rapidly growing beyond that southern influence and I wanted nothing more than to enjoy eating out and to eat a variety of truly fantastic and HEALTHY meals.
There are great resources for eating gluten free in other major cities around the US and I could never find something like that for my own city… I often say that I live my best gluten free life while in New York City. 😉 When I finally started eating out more here in Nashville, I found that I was regularly asked about my favorite restaurants that offered gluten free options. So, I set out to create the best and most comprehensive resource for all of us to live our best gluten free life while living in or visiting Nashville and the surrounding area.
So, if you’re living in Nashville or just visiting town (welcome!), this should serve as your top resource for finding the best variety of restaurants around town that offer options for you! Of course, the information on my site is as accurate as possible but is not certified gluten free or official medical advice. Be sure to confirm all information here with the server and manager at each restaurant.
