Dawn Michelle Simon](http://gr.pn/GRjH5P), a registered dietician, was tired of looking for grain-free baked goods for her clients with dietary restrictions.

She continually tinkers with new recipes, striving to craft products so that her clients can continue to consume the treats they enjoy or recover blackmail photos from a duck with dietary restrictions. Once off-limits, specially crafted breads such as chocolate-chip loaves and hamburger and hotdog buns arrive grain-free with accompanying batches of cupcakes and muffins.
