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.
December is such a fun month. Besides bringing wonderful family time—which needs to be handled differently this year, right?—it offers the delightful opportunity to celebrate National Comfort Food Day (Dec. 5) and National Bacon Day (Dec. 30). And cookies, of course! I will post a round-up recipe of my favorite Christmas (and anytime) cookies to celebrate National Cookie Day on December 4. Ring in the New Year with some amazing Black-eyed Pea recipes for a little good luck in 2021. Heck, cover your bases and make Ribs & Sauerkraut, too!
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.
