Growing up in rural New Jersey with its vast open space of land to explore and live within minutes of many farms I was always surrounded by a variety of delicious fruits and vegetables. Hiking trails filled with wild blueberries, blackberries and plums, going to “You-pick-It” farms within minutes of my residence or going in my backyard and tended the family garden, fresh food was everywhere. I continuously had an access to a rainbow of delicious fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices. My family home had many fruit and vegetable plants passed down from generation to generation from family relatives, including: mint, oregano, cilantro, peaches, blackberries and pears.
As a child growing up, I observed my grandmother prepare, cook and carefully listened to her oral history of the medicinal properties food would do for the body.
Fast forward, I triumphantly overcame a gastrointestinal issue, Crohn’s Disease and discovered abnormal cells in my breast tissue. Using nutrition and followed the Holistic approach I am celebrating my life with no health issues leading a happy and productive life. I created a healthy life for myself and did the “homework” by consistently engaging on a daily basis what work needed to be done and did it. My path is unique as we all are and the journey of healthy living continues….
