About the Author

Erica Kerwien is a kitchen chemist and writer. When one of her sons was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Crohn’s disease, she set out to help him restore his health in the best way possible—with food. Along the way, she discovered the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), which changed the way her family eats and cooks. Erica started the website Comfy Belly to track and share her recipes, and it has become a valuable resource for recipes that are gluten-free, sugar-free, lactose-free, dairy-free, and grain-free.
