Hello my name is Christine and I live on the Bellarine Peninsula with my husband Nick, whom I lovingly refer to as the caveman, our golden retriever Ruby and our cat Sooki. I’m the mother of 2 grown boys, Joel and Jarryd, a Mother in law to Lauren and grandmother to my precious Lexi. I am the creator of the Grain free and Happy Kitchen and I’d like to welcome you to my blog.

Here is where I share with you my love of food and cooking. Food that’s brimming with goodness, that’s made by hand, nourishes the soul and puts a smile on your dial. Food that’s full of flavour and free of grains, gluten, dairy, soy, legumes and refined sugars. Where desserts and treats don’t make you feel guilty or weighed down. Whether you suffer allergies, are living a paleo lifestyle, just wanting something different or looking for vegetarian or vegan options,there’s something for everyone in my blog. Follow me on my journey to better health and healing, discovering a different way of eating and cooking as I create and express myself through growing, cooking and preserving food.
