I live in Atlanta with my husband and baby boy. I love to cook when I find the time. Usually I just throw together an old reliable. Lately, that's been a meat and potato type dish (stew, chili, etc.) because they're fast and filling, but eventually I will get my act together and focus more on veggies. Soon I will resume teaching Pilates and yoga. As for my ideal food philosophy, I go for variety and enjoy meat as a side dish. We have such a wealth of veggies, herbs, nuts, etc. available to us that it's a shame not to take advantage. Some of my favorite powerfoods are broccoli, hemp food products, real cranberry juice, fish and sprouted grains. But don't be fooled (see "favorite foods" below). This is one of my favorite passages: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" (Matthew 6:25 - 27)
