Improve your health + lose weight
all with the power of food
All the recipes posted have healing qualities and are approved for diets that prevent the progress of disease, and in many instances, aid the healing process.

So jump into the blog and see what kind of delicious healing, healthy foods you can eat to nourish your body during illness.
My Mission: to empower your health
In 2011, after a life transformation through cancer, and with the encouragement and the help of my darling daughter, I started this blog.
I help others navigate through the complex and at times frustrating journey from illness to good health without limited options. What makes us sick, which foods heal, and proven options to reverse inflammatory conditions like Cancer, Heart Disease and Type II Diabetes, are discussed here.

Join me in the battle against disease! It all begins at the table...
