Archived: A Mothers Medicine: delicious, practical recipes on healthy eating

iCrowdNewswire - Dec 15, 2015

A Mothers Medicine

The story

Our beloved mother, friend and loved one passed away this year.

Leaving a hole in many people’s hearts. Just because she has left us in this

world does not mean she has left our mind, body or soul.

Here’s what we’re doing about it

One of her greatest passions was health. With the guidance and information

our mother taught us, we are creating a book titled ‘A Mothers Medicine’ that

will not only be a memorium to our mother but also share insight and

delicious, practical recipes on healthy eating. A famous quote that she lived

by was……

“Let food be thine medicine

And let medicine be thine food.”

Hippocrates, Father of Modern Medicine

This book will face us in the right direction and introduce its readers to a

whole new way of eating and gets us to think and question ………

What are we putting into our bodies?

Is it fortifying or damaging us?

Is our food perhaps a cause for our health concerns?

It has changed the way we (her children) look at and eat food. It is our hope

that the recipes and insights learnt from this book nourishes our body, mind

and soul and educates us into a whole new way of eating.
