Diana Rodgers

Paleo Lunches on the GoDiana Rodgers, NTP is a nutritionist and mother of two, living on a working organic farm outside of Boston. She was diagnosed with Celiac Disease at age 26, after lifelong health issues. After her diagnosis, she switched all of her foods to gluten free. Breakfasts were gluten free cereal or toast, lunch was a gluten free sandwich, and dinner was gluten free pasta, maybe with a gluten free beer. She felt somewhat better after the switch, but still suffered from a blood sugar “roller coaster”, low energy, and frequent stomach distress.

A few years ago, she discovered the Paleo Diet and has never looked back. The Paleo diet is not only gluten free, but also removes all grains, processed foods and sugars, dairy, legumes and alcohol. Her meals focused on pasture raised meats, seafood, vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds and healthy fats. After three weeks on the Paleo Diet, Diana felt that her entire life had changed. No more afternoon exhaustion crashes, no more snacking every hour, better sleep, better mood, and she had much more stamina in her workouts. She also quit her gig as a spinning instructor and joined a CrossFit gym. She gained muscle mass. Now, at age 40, Diana has never been healthier or stronger.

Many people struggle with the paleo diet when it comes to easy, delicious and portable meals. From lettuce-wrap sandwiches to egg muffins to creative uses for toothpicks and packaging, she takes the confusion out of how to make hand-friendly and fast Paleo meals. Recipes include her Chicken Salad with Fennel and Cranberries perfectly cradled by a leaf of romaine lettuce, the to-die for Cherry Tarragon Breakfast Sausages and even a Paleo-friendly Bubble and Squeak. These mouth-watering creations are perfect portable meals that are as healthy and easy to make as they are gourmet.

Diana now runs a nutrition practice called Radiance Nutritional Therapy, working with clients across the country to help them adjust to the Paleo Diet. She is also the nutrition consultant to several CrossFit gyms. Her book, Paleo Lunches and Breakfasts on the Go, which launches August 6, 2013, is a response to her client’s needs for quick, healthy, easy to prepare meals that are also delicious. She will be presenting with Robb Wolf at the Ancestral Health Symposium in Atlanta on “Liberation from the Industrial Food System”.
