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 Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD). Accepting the challenge of cooking without grains, refined sugars, or gluten, she began baking with the foods she was allowed: nuts, seeds, honey, all animal protein, fruit, some vegetables, and some dairy. From these efforts, both her company and the Grain-Free Gourmet cookbook series were born.
Jodi met Jenny Lass at an SCD support group and began experimenting in the kitchen together. They decided to write an SCD-friendly cookbook that would help people with limited food choices rediscover the joy of eating and in 2005, Whitecap Books published their first foray into the culinary world, the bestselling Grain-Free Gourmet: Delicious Recipes for Healthy Living.
