Hello!

How cool is it that you’re on this website just off of the strength of wanting to cook/eat better!

Don’t know about you but thats  super cool to me!

You really should never say never. I was absolutely, 100%, one of those people who said “I could never be a vegan”

and might have even said it with an attitude. Now just look at me, creating a whole plant based cookbook too.

I don’t want any of this to be about me but I was told this part is necessary.

I studied Healthcare in college, in fact I have my BS from Howard University in Healthcare Management  and studied Health Informatics at George Washington, DC. But, really my interest in healthcare didn’t peak until 2017.  I’ll get to that later. 

I come from a family of carnivores. We’re West African, so our diets consist of A LOT of meat and starch, and I mean A LOT. It wasn’t  until one of my family members started having health issues in December 2014 and had to have surgery, (three surgeries actually) that I realized that I need to get it together (and it still took me 3 years after that).  The condition in which my family member had said that her diet was a major factor in her condition.  So I quickly did my research—which I would encourage EVERY ONE of you to do on your own.  Look into the relationship between nutrition and health and food and health.  When I really got into the thick of things, I got to the “Alkaline Level, Level 7, as I like to call it…Get it? Anyway, I learned more about the alkaline lifestyle from Alfred Bowmen, Arnold Ehret, Robert Morse and independent research. 

 

I would hear a lot of vegans/plant based eaters say “I have sooooooo much energy after becoming vegan”, that was not my initial case, AT ALL.  Because I was pretty much  ignorant to all of the facets of transitioning from meat eater to plant based eater, I did’t realize that if I was giving up meat/dairy aka protein that had to make up for the change by tripling maybe even quadrupling my food intake.  So, my experience was not that of the people I would hear about.  I became lethargic, lost 23 pounds (unwanted) and just always tired.  It wasn’t until I met with a dietician and my primary doctor that I found out that my B12  levels went from 727 to 300 in 2 months and my ferritin and iron levels plummeted too. The doc put me on iron supplements and my appetite grew and energy got better.  Everyone’s experience is their OWN.  I am NOT a medical doctor and suggest you speak to your Primary Care Physician AND a Dietician to share your stats/meals and concerns with before fully transitioning.

Majority of my followers know what the alkaline “diet”is, ( I don’t really like the word “diet” because that seems temporary and it’s moreso a lifestyle). So from this point on, I will be referring to the “alkaline diet” as the “alkaline lifesyle”

What is alkaline diet?

 

The alkaline lifestyle is based on a theory that some foods cause your body to produce acid, which is harmful to the body and that by eating only plant based foods with an alkaline PH you help reduce the chance of any disease thriving.

After doing a ton of research, reading,  speaking with self published authors, traditional authors, listening to podcast on book publishing, meeting with editors, joining "self publishing" book groups (very cool, to me ), I've decided that I will self publish this cookbook.  

 

With that being said, the ideas that I have in mind for creating a quality cookbook that will be a little bit more modern and stand the test of time will take a little more time but I want to share the process with you all. Stay tuned!

 

Thanks sooo much!

Love,

BIO

I really don’t want any of this to be about me but I was told this part is necessary, so here is my spiel.

You really should never say never. I was absolutely, 100%, one of those people who said “I could never ever be a vegan”.

I lie to you not, when the conversation of "veganism" came up, I would chant "My meal ain't complete without no meat!" SMFH. Now just look at me, creating a whole plant based cookbook. Ha! Life!

I studied Healthcare in college, infact I have my BS from Howard University in Healthcare Management  and studied Health Informatics at George Washington in D.C. But, really my interest in healthcare didn’t peak until 2017. 

I’ll get to that later. 

I come from a family of carnivores. We’re West African, so our diets consist of A LOT of meat and starch, and I mean A LOT.

 

It wasn’t  until one of my family members started having health issues in December 2014 and had to have surgery, (three surgeries actually) that I realized that I need to get it together (and it still took me 3 years after that).  The condition in which my family member had was impacted by her diet in a major way.  So I quickly did my research—(which I would encourage EVERY ONE of you to do on your own).  Look into the relationship between food, nutrition and health.  

When I really got into the thick of things, I got to the “Alkaline Level, Level 7", as I like to call it…Get it? Anyway, I learned more about the alkaline lifestyle from medical professionals such as Alfred Bowmen, Arnold Ehret, Robert Morse and independent research. 

 

I would hear a lot of vegans/plant based eaters say “I have sooooooo much energy after becoming vegan”, that was not my initial experience, AT ALL.  Because I was pretty much  ignorant to all of the facets of transitioning from meat eater to plant based eater, I did’t realize that if I was giving up meat and dairy aka "animal protein", that I had to make up for the change by tripling maybe even quadrupling my whole foods intake.  So, my experience was not that of the people I would hear about.  I became lethargic, lost 23 pounds (unwanted) and was always tired.  It wasn’t until I met with a dietician and my primary doctor that I found out that my B12  levels went from 727 to 300 in 2 months and my ferritin and iron levels plummeted too. The doc put me on iron supplements and my appetite grew and energy got better.  I also get my iron from "iron rich" foods like sarsaparilla , dandelion, burdock root, soursop leaf or fruit and all the other "approved" foods.

 

Everyone’s experience is their OWN.  I am NOT a medical doctor and suggest you speak to your Primary Care Physician AND a Dietician to share your stats, meals and concerns with before fully starting a new eating regimen.
