Welcome to Gluten Free Athletes!

Gluten Free Athletes is dedicated to providing science-based gluten-free sports nutrition tips, increasing your access to trustworthy gluten-free recipes, and unlocking the secrets to easy gluten-free living!

I am a dietitian, an athlete, and a swim coach who has celiac disease.

I have over half a decade of lived gluten-free experience; I know firsthand how difficult maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle can be. And, unfortunately, I know how defeating and painful it can feel to be “glutened”! 

I became a celiac specialized dietitian determined to serve and advocate for all members of the gluten-free community. This website is dedicated to you and your gluten-free needs so that your diagnosis no longer defines you or holds you back from your goals.

Gluten Free Athletes can achieve success in sports and live an active, healthy gluten-free life.

Why Should You Trust Gluten Free Athletes?

All posts and recipes on this blog are written, tested, and analyzed by Katie Seaton who is a Registered Dietitian (RD). To achieve the RD credential, Katie had to complete a Bachelor of Science degree from an accredited dietetics program, complete 1,200 hours of supervised practice, and pass the national RD registration exam. Maintaining this credential requires 75 hours of continuing education every 5 years. Unlike the term “nutritionist”, the use of the RD credential is legally protected. Katie is an active member and leader within the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.  More information on the RD credential and the Academy can be found here.

All posts and recipes will be based on the best scientific research or databases available.  However, everyone may have different gluten-free needs or other food sensitivities.  All recipes have been personally tested by Katie (and foodie friends) for taste, reproducibility, and acceptance.
