  • A Word from Author

    I strongly believe in the “food as medicine” approach. Chronic disease is fueled by what we eat. Food may not replace medication entirely; but there are lifestyle choices we can make to assist in improving our health. I also believe food affects our mental health and making the right food choices can prevent cognitive decline. The Mediterranean Diet, DASH diet and the Mind Diet are meal plans that I personally recommend. Bon Appetit!
