Good food can more than nourish you, it can heal you. Thank goodness! Because I developed several health issues a few years ago. I learned I had food sensitivities and what a pain (literally) that is. Food choices helped me heal my gut and my heart. How? I’ll tell you in a minute.
Since October is National Pork Month and it is my favorite meat, I’ll be posting a few good pork recipes. Though I’d like to live on pork, health is more about variety, vegetables and greens. So watch for some delicious vegetarian recipes, too, because it’s also National Vegetarian Awareness Month.
And at the end of the month, watch for my new book talking about my healing story, featuring 30 fall and winter recipes, and giving you some tools to figure out what foods might be causing you trouble.
A few years ago I was overweight, stressed, and a prime target for health problems. I had a heart attack, followed by gut issues. You know everything in your body is related, right?
