Description
My husband and I raised our glasses and said yes to adventure, moving ourselves and our two very young children to the Mexican jungle. After a year there, I became deathly ill, so we returned to our family farm and cattle ranch outside of Nashville, Tennessee, where I embarked on my greatest quest. I went from being a clueless kitchen woman, having lived on only processed foods, to becoming a REAL FOOD master cook. I then began healing my body, shifting our cattle ranch to grass fed and creating an organic bio-dynamic produce company in the process. What started out as a Mee thing became a We thing, as I launched community kitchens throughout the city of Nashville and now Malibu, inspiring people to return to a healthy farm-table lifestyle. This book is the story of my journey, the food facts I came to understand, and lots of healthy, healing recipes to share. An Introduction Every day I seem to learn more and more about food, cooking, and healing. When I first embarked on this grand cooking adventure, I thought it was only to heal my own body . . . to get well enough to live pain free and to be able to eat whatever I wanted. I had no idea that I would not only learn to heal my intestines but also unveil the great secret to healing and preventing disease. This secret is that our intestines and their wellness are the key to balancing our immune systems. Therefore, everyone would do well to embark on a REAL FOOD DIET that strengthens the digestive tract, balances healthy bacteria versus unhealthy bacteria, and produces healthy, whole, and long shadoobies daily. As I began to share with the world what I’d learned, the e-mails began to pour in from all over the country via my website, www.meetracy.com. I found myself digging for answers for folks who were suffering from autoimmune diseases and cancer. I knew that if food could heal a hole in my intestines, then for certain it could help others get well from an array of different illnesses. What I found were tons of stories of food miracles. This hunt to understand our health and what makes us well expanded my own healing, and I found the “red thread” that connects all of us on the road to better health—REAL FOOD. I hope my journey inspires you to shift your relationship with life and know that you have a choice in what you eat and how you feel. Mee McCormick believes that when we are armed with information and education, we can choose who we become. And this starts with the food we choose to eat.
