Cindy Gordon aka VegetarianMamma has been a recipe developer since February 2009, when she started this site. She brings her love for gluten-free recipes, travel, life and wellness to her readers.
About Vegetarian Mamma – just who in the world is she? 😉 Cindy Gordon is the face beyond the wildly popular blog, Vegetarian Mamma.
My name is Cindy, I am the owner and author of Vegetarian Mamma. My husband and I grew up eating meat but decided to make the switch to a vegetarian diet in 2005. Our children have been raised vegetarian. We have also dealt with many food allergies, including life-threatening allergies. In the past, we avoided all peanuts, tree-nuts, dairy, gluten and soy. Thankfully my children have outgrown many of their allergies. My youngest son and I both have to eat gluten-free and we are dairy sensitive. **In June 2016 my youngest son’s almond allergy came back! So we are currently avoiding almonds only.

We will let you make that decision, but we do want to share that we have been blogging and developing recipes since 2009.
While we have had lots of successes, we have also had failures. We are real and we have nothing to hide. We learn each day! We are part of a community that wants to help and support each other.
