A Conversation with Desiree Nielsen and Ellen Bayens

A plant-based diet has many formats and can go by many names including vegetarian and vegan.  On this episode I speak with Ellen Bayens about her recent pivot from gluten free to a plant-based gluten free diet.  Recently, Ellen introduced me to a fellow podcaster, Desiree Nielsen, who is also a registered dietitian.  This was a great opportunity to ask all the questions I’ve ever had about a plant-based diet and how it fits for someone who must adhere to a strict gluten free diet.  Ellen talks about how she decided to try a plant-based diet, how she started and how she’s truly enjoying exploring new foods and flavours.  Desiree walks us through the simplicity of the diet and gives us some specific tips to keep plant-based gluten free.  You can listen to Desiree’s podcast – The Allsorts Podcast wherever you listen to podcasts, or you can listen online at  You can also find more information about Desiree’s book and her recipes at
