Meet Becky

Welcome to my blog!  I'm so glad you're here!

My name is Becky: eater and cooker!

In the fall of 2009, my health collapsed, and I relied heavily on anti-emetics and pain medication to tolerate food.  I felt sorry for myself, and was angry that illness had happened to me.  I spent many days in the hospital, and was presented surgery and medication as the roads back to my "normal life."  I didn't realize that my "normal life" was over, and that this was a beautiful, life-changing gift.

I was afraid and overwhelmed when  Virginia Harper, a Nashville-based macrobiotic counselor, took me into her home.  I didn't think that food could heal what my doctors said were lifelong conditions, but I was willing to give anything a shot.

To my surprise, I got my health back and I got the answers to many questions.  I could have never imagined the roads I would walk when I first considered this diet.  I can work, study, travel, and eat without fear or pain.  For the first time in my life, I'm medication-free.

Here is what I believe:

+   We are born with the ability to heal.

+   Mind, body, and spirit are linked.  I believe that healing in one area heals and uplifts the other.

+   Peace and healing begins with the self.  They radiate into the home, town, country, and the world.

+   Providential goodness walks with us through times of pain and uncertainty.

+   There is still so much to learn.

I hope you enjoy my recipes!  I love cooking and am always open to new suggestions and ideas, so feel free to drop me a comment!
