I'm Kasey, a food nerd -- that's me, in the apron and fierce vintage earrings, with two excellent chefs in Italy.
As a registered dietitian nutritionist for over 20 years, I aim to heal with food. How and what we eat is powerful! For 16 years in my private practice, I have helped clients with food sensitivities and autoimmune diseases. It's been wonderful to witness how eating healthier changes lives. I love to cook gluten and dairy free and learn all I can about food.
I follow a gluten and dairy free lifestyle but can really struggle when traveling. Food sensitive options are often an afterthought in the restaurant and tourism industry. It can be an incredibly disheartening, not to mention hungry, situation. I’ve eaten in the culinary capitals of Italy and France, surrounded by fragrant, luscious, piping-hot, glutinous bread but I end up with a dry gluten-free cracker wrapped in plastic! I know chefs, restaurants, and hoteliers want to do better. And with proper planning through our small group tours, they really do!
With Appetite to Travel, we create and teach cooking classes and conduct worldwide tours for food enthusiasts -all with delicious gluten and dairy free options.
I hold Advanced Certificate of Training in Adult Weight Management through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. As a Certified LEAP Therapist, I help identify and manage symptoms that stem from food reactions.
I'm also a certified plant-based chef and have enhanced my skills at numerous cookery courses and lessons in the USA, Ireland, Italy, France, Costa Rica, Turkey, and Israel.
We are a team of experienced experts. Our team of a medical doctor, a registered dietitian nutritionist, a graphic designer, interns, and professional travel advisors have helped thousands achieve optimum health and amazing foodie travel.
