SIMPLE FOOD AS MEDICINE

We all have to eat. And every day we make choices about our food that either supports or hinders our energy, strength and wellness. The catch-22 of trying to eat well when you do not have the energy to prepare meals at home is a dilemma - one I can help you navigate.

Getting healthy food into your body is easy so easy recipes are critical and meal preps hacks are critical.
Also, when you are weak, fatigued and in pain, eating is not top of mind.
Often, meals become a daily burden as you try and figure out how you are going to get your next meal while you are stuck in bed. And healthy meals seems like a luxurious aspiration that is too often out of reach.

But nutritious food is key to getting back on track to feeling stronger and better.
It is truly foundational. Let me help you because I have been there.

Food has been a challenge for me since I got sick. Before I got sick, I never ever thought about my food or my weight. I appreciate now what a luxury that was then. Over the years, I followed a lot of bad advice (haven’t we all?).

Through the care of a very skilled acupuncturists, I experienced in my own body the power of food to be medicine or a bad drug. (There is a reason they call it a sugar high). I went from being oblivious to food - just eating whatever I could scrounge together whenever I was hungry to being much more aware and mindful of the power of food. There is a big difference between knowing these things abstractly in my head, and knowing from the experience and self-knowledge of how food affects my body, my sleep quality, my ability to move and exercise. I have also expanded my skills in the kitchen and learned how I can have easy, nourishing food without becoming a master chef.
