 EA Stewart, BS, MBA, RD, is a registered dietitian with a private nutrition consulting practice in Del Mar, CA. She specializes in wellness nutrition, family nutrition, celiac disease/gluten sensitivity, other food sensitivities, and nutrition therapy for autoimmune conditions, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

After being diagnosed with Sjogren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disease, and fibromyalgia following the birth of her two children, EA started researching the link between celiac disease/gluten sensitivity and numerous autoimmune conditions.  Her blood tests came back
negative for celiac disease, but genetic tests revealed she carries one of the genes for the potential development of celiac disease.  EA has been gluten-free since 2007, and correspondingly, symptom-free from Sjogren’s syndrome and Fibromyalgia since then as well.  Since going gluten-free, she has rediscovered a love of cooking and baking which she shares on her blog, The Spicy RD, and she is passionate about helping others with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity regain their health through a gluten-free lifestyle.

EA is a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, as well as the following nutrition practice groups:  Dietitians in Business and Communications, Dietitians in Functional and Integrative Nutrition, and Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutrition (SCAN).  In her free time, she enjoys cooking with her children, hiking and skiing, and serving as a Girl Scout leader and as a PTA board member at her children’s school.

Special Donation Request:
San Diego 2018-19 GF Kids Support Programs

San Diego children and their parents with celiac and gluten disorders need support, too.  We want to raise $350 this year to to offset expenses for 4 kid-focused educational/fun programs for the 2018-2019 year.

Kids only get one chance to grow, and a recent large cohort study* demonstrated that children with celiac are consuming many times over their expected safe upper threshold of gluten/day on average inadvertently. When you reserve your ticket, please consider a small donation, which will be earmarked for our kids' program.  Your donation is necessary to sustain an educational program for the children.  We will also mention your name (unless you prefer we don't) on our website to thank you!
