Hi! I’m Nicole! I’m the recipe developer, food enthusiast and photographer behind Heal Me Delicious.
I grew up in Trinidad and Tobago and live in Tkaronto (Toronto). Some of the things I’m most passionate about in life are food, authenticity, holistic healing, social justice, equity, and care.
In 2019, I turned to the autoimmune protocol as a complementary form of disease management for Graves’ disease. Shortly thereafter, I began Heal Me Delicious to build community and share the delicious parts of my healing journey with fellow autoimmunies and folks with food allergies.
As a Dr. Sarah-Approved AIP Blogger, many of the recipes on this site follow the recommendations of Dr. Sarah Ballantyne as laid out in The Autoimmune Protocol e-book. Beyond AIP recipes, here you’ll find delicious allergen-friendly, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, nut-free and egg-free baked goods and treats, snacks, one-pot meals, and Caribbean-inspired creations for all to enjoy.
As a feminist, anti-racist researcher and wellness entrepreneur, I recognize the ways that capitalism, ableism, racism and anti-fatness co-constitute the food and wellness industry and the historic and ongoing harms the industry has inflicted upon Black, Indigenous and People of Color. I am committed to an equity-centered and inclusive vision of wellness for all and welcome feedback on how I might make my work and the resources offered herein more accessible.
