Jodi Bager
Jodi Bager is the president of Grain-Free JK Gourmet, a Canadian baked goods manufacturing company, and a baking services consultant. In 2000, after the birth of her second child, Jodi was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, a life-destroying intestinal disease. In her search for alternatives to heavy doses of steroid drugs, she tried the SCD. Accepting the challenge of cooking without grains, refined sugars, or gluten, she began baking with the foods she was allowed: nuts, seeds, honey, most animal protein, fruit, and some vegetables. From these efforts, both her company and the Grain-Free Gourmet books were born.
