Cooking healthy plant-based meals doesn't have to be an arduous task. Take it from me because I do it in the COOL-est way. Cooking On One Leg! Because of this, I have to keep it super easy.
Twenty years ago as young mother of two children, I lost my leg to bone cancer. I was fitted for a prosthetic leg and life went on. Then several years later I was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer. Even with conventional treatment, most of which I did, my doctors predicted that the cancer would return with a year.
I started researching and found that some women had increased their chances of survival by adopting a plant-based diet (similar to how President Clinton now eats!).
Within a week I was taking cooking classes and starting to change the food I ate. I was a junk food junkie, but I began cooking and eating whole grains, beans, vegetables, sea vegetables and lots of foods that never dreamed I'd eat. I gradually started changing the foods my family ate, too.
Today, 12 years later, I remain cancer-free and vibrantly healthy and eating in this delicious way! And ... cooking on one leg! Over the last few years, my prosthetic leg doesn't fit well so I don't wear it as much. I've had to adapt to cooking on crutches and that means making quicker, easier versions of this food than I did in the past. I love this because in doing so I've helped others who are on their own "last leg," such as people that are tired from working all day, but still want quick, easy and delicious plant-based meals.
