HI, I’M RACHAEL ROEHMHOLDT
For the past 5 years I’ve been living with gluten and dairy food intolerances. I know how overwhelming this lifestyle can be because I’ve lived it!
When I started this lifestyle, there were no guidebooks. Gluten-free living was not in vogue and I had to figure it all out on my own.
I didn’t want to give up my favorite foods, but I knew that it’d be silly not to listen to the messages my body was sending me. I’ve spent hundreds of hours doing research online, at the grocery store, and in the real world learning the ins and outs of staying away from gluten and dairy.
Since removing gluten and dairy from my diet, I feel more energized and my laundry list of symptoms have disappeared. I now help my clients to adjust to a gluten- and dairy-free lifestyle.
As a certified holistic health coach (a 2013 Institute For Integrative Nutrition grad), I teach women how to use the transition to a gluten-free dairy-free diet as a chance to become the healthiest version of themselves so they can feel their best all the time.
While most health and lifestyle coaches focus on dieting or weight loss, I’m committed to helping you find strategies to adjust to your new lifestyle, eliminate the foods that make you sick, and feel confident in the choices you make around food.
Living with food intolerances or a limited diet doesn’t have to mean you have to live without fun, pleasure, or pure enjoyment of food.
It can be incredibly overwhelming to first start out with a gluten-free dairy-free life, which is why I offer a completely free shopping list (one I use in my kitchen every week!) to help you take on the first step in taking on this lifestyle change. You can get access by filling in your name and email below.

In my previous life, I was a food blogger and a corporate monkey working in global market research. I wrote and analyzed survey data for Fortune 500 companies, drank too many vanilla lattes and wine, barely slept, and dreamed in Excel spreadsheets and managing translation vendors. Oh the joy!
I love to write and share my stories and have been featured in many large online publications, including The Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen, Yahoo, Health Your Way Online, and Life Your Way, among others.
A few other random tidbits about me:
- I live in the Seattle area – about an hour west of the city. We moved back to our hometown to be closer to family and raise our little guy here.
- I’ve been blogging and writing since I was 15. Most of my old blogs are still live – and embarrassing with all the teenage angst I had.
- I live for research, reading, and absorbing information. I’m constantly reading at least two or three books at any given time.
- My favorite movies are the totally predictable romantic comedies that most men hate. I live for the happy ending – what can I say?
- Tacos and almost all Mexican food is my absolute FAVE!
- The personality tests say I am a Sage archetype and an INTJ. And I’m a Gemini for all you astrology folks.
