Healthy Meals for the Family
Meals Can Be Both Delicious and Healthy
As I write about in detail in my new full-color recipe and lifestyle book Recipes for Health Bliss: Using NatureFoods & Lifestyle Choices to Rejuvenate Your Body & Life, I love to cook and create delicious meals using foods from nature in a rainbow of colors. The main reason that I wrote this book, which is described by author and publisher, Louise Hay, as ". . . the most beautiful health book on the planet," is because I like to make people feel good. It's the kind of good that comes from an unexpected, deep belly laugh and enjoying nutritious, delectable food—food that also just happens to help heal the body. It's similar to the way your favorite childhood memory gives you a tingle and puts a smile on your face whenever it comes to you, even as you rush through an activity-filled day in a busy city or community far away from where you grew up.
My love for food and creating recipes started when I was a little girl and I watched my mom and grandmother spending lots of time in the kitchen, creating meals that brought all of us kids and our playmates out of our rooms or in from the yard. Even during holidays, my mom would always create extra room at our table for friends who were far away from their relatives or who didn't have any family. We also invited a few service members from nearby military bases who were far away from their homes. These were good times, and great food was always the hub of the wheel, which incited lots of laughter, enjoyable conversations, and countless "Yums."
Even to this day, I've adopted my mom's and grandmother's passion for sharing good food, as my neighbors, friends, and family can attest. I'm always making gifts of homemade creations to help brighten their days in some small way. It's one of my greatest passions in life: creating wonderful dishes and sharing my love for food and healthy living with as many people as possible. My hope is that my new recipe book, and these pages of my website under "Recipes" will inspire you to create your own healthy meals; share them with family and friends; and find other simple ways to adopt a more nurturing lifestyle as I describe in Recipes for Health Bliss. And if you want to learn more about the benefits of raw foods, as well as plant-based foods in general, please refer to my books Walking on Air, and The Joy Factor.

To me, old age is always fifteen years older than I am.
~ George Baruch
He who is calm and of a happy nature will hardly feel the pressure of age, but to him of the opposite disposition, youth and age are equally burdensome.
