Sticking to even a ‘normal’ diet can be difficult. Add in the challenge of adhering to ​a vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free or FODMAP diet and knowing what to prepare for your next meal can seem daunting, especially if you’ve only recently being recommended a new diet.

Melanie, the talented chef behind Mettle + Grace, is experienced in cooking vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, raw, paleo, dairy free, OMS diet, low residue diet, FODMAP and sugar free meals.  

As Melanie has suffered from severe IBS since she was 14-years-old she’s intimately aware of the dietary challenges you will face. After all, Mettle + Grace has been born from the knowledge she’s developed in using healthy eating to address her illness, as well as her experience in cooking for clients over the past 10 years in Melbourne, Canada, Italy, Ireland.


An initial bio-resonance test informed Mel of the foods that were irritating her stomach – bringing direction in her diet. She taught herself how to cook without many regular ingredients, including; tomatoes, dairy products, legumes and grains containing gluten. A scrumptious demonstration of how Melanie can confidently address her dietary constraints is her incredible lasagna, which is made without tomatoes, gluten and dairy – not only does it taste really good, it’s nourishing and great at keeping your belly healthy!
