Welcome to Hale and Kale!
I’m Audrey — a student, tennis player, and self-taught gourmet cook. I have always loved cooking, but after being diagnosed with celiac disease (I can’t eat gluten), I delved deeper into my passion for cooking. I embraced this challenge and aside from tennis and school work, I spend countless hours in the kitchen trying to concoct flavorful and healthy meals. My recipes are flourless and paleo-inspired; they are grain-, gluten-, and legume-free, and limit dairy. At the same time, my recipes are innovative and global. I do a lot of research on nutrition and autoimmune diseases (asthma, diabetes 1, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.) and am glad to tell you that my recipes are ideal for anyone with an autoimmune disease. They are also ideal for anyone who wants to eat healthy or simply lose weight.
I’m Caroline, Audrey’s sister. I’m also a student, tennis player, and passionate cook. Throughout my life, I have battled many food intolerances and allergies. When I learned that I was allergic to gluten, I was disheartened and afraid that I would only be able to eat dull foods. But, I was wrong. Audrey introduced me to flourless and allergy-free cooking and since then, I have been creating quick and easy-to-make healthy dishes. Besides cooking, I enjoy embellishing the appearance of Audrey’s dishes so that they not only taste great, but look appealing too.
A little more about us…
We relish the outdoors and traveling. Besides tennis, we enjoy hiking, mountain biking, rock scrambling, kayaking, and swimming laps. We also like yoga, cross-country and downhill skiing. Other than sports, cooking and baking, we love taking photographs and painting.
We can’t wait until you try some of our recipes and would welcome your feedback! We can also answer any questions (ingredients, lifestyle, travel, hikes)! We hope you realize, like we did, that a real-food diet is not only good for your body, but can taste great too!
So, it’s time to get excited about eating healthy! Bon Appetit!
All the best!
Audrey and Caroline
