In January 2013 I was induced into a medical coma at Shands hospital in Gainesville, FL. I was going into septic shock and the bacteria was killing all of my organs. I had a 1% chance of living, but a miracle happened and today I am here working to make a difference in others lives.
After the hospital I had a compromised immune system and developed Ulcerative Colitis. I saw hundreds of doctors this past year and no one seemed to be able to help me, I was a "mystery case" they said.
Instead of listening to each doctor and putting tons of medicine in my body, I decided to heal myself through food. I went gluten-free and began to try a vegan diet. I also invested in a juicer and began juicing every single day to heal my body from the inside out.
Today, I am happy to say that my diet has helped me get healthy again!
Instead of looking at the situation from a negative perspective, I decided to have fun with my lifestyle change. I began learning how to cook gluten-free vegan meals that are just as delicious as the meals I was eating before. Now, I want to share these deliciously healthy recipes with you!
Another reason I want to make this cookbook is because every cookbook I've read that is gluten-free or vegan contains recipes that have over 20 ingredients and take hours to make! My recipes are simple, easy and are for people that want to be healthy but have busy lifestyles.
This cook book contains 40 recipes for everyday meals:
- Juice & Smoothies
- Snacks & Appetizers
I am so grateful that I am healthy today and that I was able to make food, my medicine.
The $200 I am asking will go towards printing and distribution costs.
Thank you in advance for all of your support, every $1 helps me reach my goal!
Risks and challenges
Any project has its risks, but luckily for us, the bulk of the work has already been done: photography, recipes, and design. There are still some tweaks to make (editing of text and photos), but mostly what remains is the printing.
There are always possibilities of delays with printing, but I will be working hard to meet deadlines and have these books printed and distributed by December.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
