I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. If you follow my journey you will know that I decided to follow a plant based lifestyle when I was going through chemotherapy. It has been amazing for me in many ways and I have learnt to cook all over again, I’ve never eaten so well. I know through chemo food is tough, some days you don’t want to eat a thing and other days you crave food mainly carbs, for me deciding to focus on plant based nutrition I managed my food choices well. This meal right here is full of good stuff and it will curb those carb cravings whilst getting good stuff back into your body, I know first hand how chemo strips you of your own goodness, food for me was the way to rebuild after each infusion, it also gave me great focus, doing something good for me by me…..I really really hope my recipes can help others going through this period.
