Women Who Work: Food Blogger Natalie

For many, the New Year brings the resolution of healthier eating habits. Of course, this can be challenging, especially if you choose to opt to be gluten free.

However, blogger Natalie of GF Macros with Nat has got you covered. Her blog, which originally started as an Instagram account of the same name, has many different healthy recipes for those choosing to eat healthier in 2021. Natalie’s blog has so many different choices that even have me drooling — even though I am not gluten free.

Be sure to keep reading and check out my interview with her, and then check out her blog!

How did you get started eating gluten free?

I started eating gluten free when I got diagnosed with a gluten intolerance about 5 years ago. 

What was the hardest thing about beginning your journey about eating gluten free?

The hardest thing was adjusting to not being able to eat “normal” anymore, I had to figure out my new normal and that took some time to get used too. Eating new foods, finding gluten free substitutes and realizing they don’t taste the same at all.

What inspired you to start your blog?

I decided to start my blog, since I had many people reach out to me from my Instagram Page and Facebook Page saying how if they go away with social media they would still like to read and see my posts so I thought it was finally time to give the people what they were asking for, a way to access my information without social media.  Tell me more about your blog.

How many times a week do you plan to post? Will you be growing to different meals, like dessert or breakfast, or stick to dinners and snacks?

I plan to post every time I make something new. Lately I have been doing dinner, breakfast and snack. I hope to include dessert sometimes soon.

How do you come up with new recipes?

I get a lot of my inspiration for my recipes through Pinterest, of course I have to modify to fit my Gluten Allergy. 

You have an Instagram account as well with so much delicious content. Will some of the recipes you share there make on the blog as well?

Yes, I have a few on my blog now.

What is your favorite gluten-free meal?

I would have to say, four cheese Alfredo with gluten free penne pasta with shrimp and gluten free garlic bread! 

Do you have any tips for someone who is beginning a gluten-free journey, whether it may be for health reasons like yourself, or just trying to lose weight?

I would say do a lot of research before just jumping into gluten free. I did a lot of research read a lot of articles looked at different recipes and use Pinterest that is your best friend. 

Do you have any tips for anyone who is starting a food blog in the new year?

I would say if you always wanted to do it and still never did it, nows your time to shine! Go and make that blog!

  1. I haven’t had pasta in years! I am gluten intolerant and my diet is pretty limited. I did enjoy a gluten free vegan pizza last week which was amazing! There seems to be so many more options nowadays. I seem to have developed an intolerance in my 30’s and have struggled with not having the foods I used to be able to enjoy. xx
