Hi there! My name is Jackye. I’m a techie by day, aspiring chef by night, and this is my website. I live in Florida, have two great dogs named Max and Ace, and I like all kinds of nuts.
At 50 years old after a decade of ill health, I got pissed off. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired, and decided on right there and then I was going to change my life. I am so excited at my achievements! My doctor was very surprised as he did not think all this was possible. I know Mom is smiling down with pride for me. 🙂
I cannot even begin to describe how much better every facet of my life is since I regained my health. Here are my major changes:
- Blood pressure – normal
- Blood sugar – normal
- Cholesterol – normal
- Triglycerides – normal
- Restless leg syndrome – gone
- 60 pounds – gone
- Fibromyalgia/Rheumatoid Arthritis – controlled
- Vision – improved
I developed a passion for food as I regained my health and strength. I put together this website so I can save my recipes and share them if any others are interested.
You may find that I use some ingredients that many people shy away from and vice versa. For example, I cook with lard and butter instead of canola and olive oil. I do this because I am more concerned about the trans-fats from heating plant-based oils than I am about consuming saturated fats. I also try not to exclude any particular food type.
I do avoid processed foods as much as possible. If I need to use a processed food, I look for one with the least amount of chemicals and genetically modified ingredients. I hope you enjoy my blog and recipes!
