As a self-proclaimed Foodie and cooking enthusiast, I have always been amazed by how people gather together over food. However, over the years, I have become even more intrigued with how food can heal or destroy the human body and soul.

Food, which is celebrated through bountiful harvests and the best restaurant reviews it town, can also become someone's arch nemesis. Weight gain, diabetes, heart disease and many more diseases have food to thank as part of the reason so many have the disease.

My first client for the Momma Cuisine - Prepared Meals Services has asked for me to help make dinners for her family as well as to keep her on a strict "diet" of low to no carbs, low fat, but high in taste, simple enough for her kids and easy to heat and eat. Now that's a request! But, isn't this what we are all looking for?

Also, my husband had a freak accident playing basketball and is now required to undergo major knee surgery. The whole idea of letting food heal your body instead of destroying it, became an even bigger and more personal task. In researching this, I hope to help my family and my clients by making them foods that are tasty and choosing ingredients and cooking techniques that will keep them healthy.

Green Vegetables, beans, tofu, sesame seeds, and even oranges contain lots of usable calcium, without the problems associated with dairy. Keep in mind that you retain the calcium better and just do not need as much when you don't consume a diet heavy in animal products and sodium, sugar, and caffeine.


The key to eating healthy is quite simple. Get away from processed foods, and concentrate on eating more fruits and vegetables. Sounds simple enough, right? Well, with giant M's at every street corner, and an extremely fast-paced lifestyle, it is very easy to succumb to the temptation.

Here are some ideas of great foods that also heal:

Tangerines - Prevent heart disease, Reduce the risk of cancer

Raisins - Improve digestion, Lower blood pressure, Keep blood healthy

Papaya - Aid in digestion, Prevent heart disease and cancer

Nuts - Protect against Heart disease, Lower Cholesterol, Prevent Cancer

Garlic - Prevent heart disease and stroke, Reduce the risk of stomach and colon cancers, Lower cholesterol

Oats - Improve insulin sensitivity, Lower cholesterol and blood sugar, Reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer

Spices - Protect against cataracts, Prevent cancer, Lower cholesterol, Prevent blood clotting

Hot Tea - Control cholesterol, Prevent stroke and heart disease, Reduce tooth decay, Prevent intestinal cancer

Corn - Lower cholesterol, Boost energy levels

Cherries - Natural pain killer, Reduces inflamation, may help you sleep


Happy Eating (and cooking)!
