Recipe Renovator Stephanie loves taking recipes and remaking them with healthier ingredients. She's been gluten-free for about five years, and (mostly) sugar-free for even longer. Long ago, Stephanie got a master's in public health in nutrition education, but writes as a home cook with a love of delicious, healthy food. If you're looking for recipes with super-healthful ingredients, you've come to the right place! She says she's lucky to live in San Diego, where she can grow some fruits and veggies year-round, and features locally grown produce as much as possible, organic when she can afford it, and the occasional bit of meat protein when she can get hold of something that's produced in a healthful way. Enjoy!
