O.k, So yes, I was picked on a few times when I was a kid for some of the funny food I had in my lunch box. But.. the rice cakes with sprouts or the veggie sushi were actually things I requested for my lunch.
35 years ago my father was introduced to macrobiotics when he was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma. He recovered with full health by adopting the macrobiotic diet and lifestyle. He also passed on his knowledge to my mother and raised his kids on a whole foods diet.
I learned most of my cooking skills from my mother, who is a great cook. Also, bless her, she always gave me free reign in the kitchen. Cooking was one of my many interests and after high school I ventured down to the Kushi Institute in Becket, Massachusetts for a few months, where I lived and studied macrobiotic theory, cooking and shiatsu. I was especially inspired by my teacher, Luchi Baranda, who was always supportive and encouraging, especially when it came to cooking and health for mothers and children.
Born and raised on Prince Edward Island ,Canada I return every summer to my farm there in Millvale. As for the past 8 years I have lived with my husband and 3 kids in New England. I gave bi-weekly cooking classes on whole foods at Yale University.
Now we have returned to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island for the 2010/2011 year. I’m running an after school cooking program for elementary and junior high kids. As well as taking appointments to help people with dietary needs like making the transition to a whole foods diet, allergy cooking etc..I can be reached at 902-367-9491.
I look forward to helping friends and strangers alike with introducing whole foods into their lifestyle.
