A little info on me. I used to teach in a Title One school in North Carolina. While I loved the kids, teaching made me eat poorly. Why? I was beyond stressed out, so cooking healthy recipes was not a priority. That combined with the fact that heart disease and diabetes (the kind brought on by food) run in my family led me to create and reinvent recipes to make them better for our bodies.
These recipes use healthy alternatives in place of the not-so-good-for-you ingredients. These replacements maintain your glucose levels, so your sugar doesn’t spike and your cholesterol doesn’t skyrocket, therefore you stay lean and you stay healthy. By changing the way we eat, we can maintain a health lifestyle that isn’t dictated by following specific diet plans or counting calories.
When I’m not cooking feasts, I am usually anywhere near oceans and/or climbing rocks, somewhere involving soul music, well, soul everything, or speaking to my dog in different languages, hereby making her a genius.
