Welcome! I’m Claire, a food photographer, recipe developer and blogger based in Austin, Texas. Eat With Clarity was born out of my love for food, health, photography, and again… food! Favorite things include pasta, Taylor Swift and vanilla buttercream.
I’ve always loved to cook and love inspiring others to get back into the kitchen. Eat With Clarity welcomes all types of eaters but focuses on gluten and dairy free recipes that are easy to make and will have you reaching for seconds. With plenty of vegan, vegetarian & paleo options, there is something here for everyone!
I have always looooooved food (and cooking!). I loved to bake during my middle school years, but in high school and college I really struggled with disordered and restricted eating.
Food seemed to consume every aspect of my life and I was constantly focused on my weight, body and every single thing I put into it. Eventually, I was able to heal my relationship with food and discovered my love for nutrition and cooking.
After years of mystery symptoms and dozens of trips to dozens of doctors, I was eventually diagnosed with Celiac Disease in early 2020. Shortly after cutting gluten from my diet, many of my symptoms improved and I made it my mission to prove gluten-free recipes can be just as good as the real stuff. Seriously, try my chocolate cake if you’re skeptical!
I believe food (and of course eating!) is one of life’s greatest pleasures and can make you feel amazing without sacrificing taste. Eat With Clarity is a place for simple, gluten free recipes that are designed to taste as good as they make you feel.
All of my recipes are dairy and gluten free with a focus around simple ingredients. Life is about balance, so you’ll find a mix of healthier and not so healthy recipes (hi brownie skillet) on Eat With Clarity. A few additional notes about my recipes:
- We all have different taste buds, so feel free to adjust the seasonings to your liking. You’ll probably learn that I’m garlic obsessed, but if you don’t want to use 12 cloves in this mushroom broccoli rigatoni, feel free to scale back a bit!
- Life is busy so I try to keep all recipes as simple and quick as possible. Most recipes (aside from a few like this roasted red pepper pasta) take less than 30 minutes to make and are made in just 1 pot or bowl.
- Most recipes have substitutions listed whenever possible. If you have a specific allergy or preference, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll do my best to provide you with a substitution within 48 hours.
- I take inspiration from various cultures with my recipes from time to time. I always do my research into the recipe and try to provide as much information to my readers about the origin and background of the recipe. Please note that these recipes are just my take, I am not trying to detract from the cultures that created them and always share resources so you can learn more about the authentic and original dish. I never try to claim my versions are “better than” any other version. If there is ever anything I share that is of concern, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you do all of your own photography? Yes! I took photography classes in high school, but it wasn’t until I started Eat With Clarity that I really discovered how much I love food photography. We eat with our eyes first after all!
Are you vegan? I am gluten free out of medical necessity, but other than that I do not like to add labels to my diet. Including animal protein in my diet works well for me, but you will find lots of vegan recipes on Eat With Clarity and I like to keep this a welcoming space for all types of eaters.
Do you do freelance photography? Yes! I work with both brands and bloggers to photograph and/or develop recipes. If you are interested in hearing more about what I offer, don’t hesitate to reach out.
Do you blog full time? Yes! Running Eat With Clarity is how I spend 99% of my time. It’s a ton of work and took a long time to get here, but I truly wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s because of all of you that I get to do this, so thank you!
Do you have a cookbook? I would LOVE to write a cookbook someday, but for now I have a gluten free recipe ebook with over 35 easy to make recipes. All of them are also vegan!
