When I found out I had candida, I did a lot of research. The one thing I read over and over again is, most with candida, end up with cancer. Scary!! I decided right then and there, to do everything possible to heal the candida and hopefully prevent cancer.
The most important thing I did was to completely change my diet. When I did this, I found out first hand how healing it can be to eat the right foods. I have healed a lot of the issues I had and I continue to try to eat healthy.
When I found out there was a cookbook, The Cancer Wellness Cookbook by Kimberly Mathai, I wanted to have it. My thought is, if it can help make cancer patients well, maybe it can help to keep me from getting cancer. I know you can fight illness with eating the correct foods, so why not cancer. Right away, I ask to review it and here we are!!
I pretty much eat healthy anyway, but I have no good recipes that are targeted for healing purposes. This book is loaded with delicious recipes. Some of the recipes do call for a little bit of sugar which I don't use so I just replace it with my sweetner of choice.
Check out the Gingered Carrot Soup I made using the recipe in this book.
So delicious and easy to make. I had all the ingredients on hand.
There is also a Golden Winter Squash Soup that I want to try, among so many other recipes.
It used to be a joke between my Hubs and me. We always said that I EAT TO LIVE, and he LIVES TO EAT. It isn't so funny any longer because I do EAT TO LIVE. What is great though, is my Hubs is now eating much like I do.
Let me tell you a little bit about this book.
