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!
