Akwaaba, I have been cooking professionally since the age of 15 in Ghana, West-Africa. Cooking delicious meals happen to be my passion. I loved cooking so much that I opened and managed an African-Caribbean Restaurant called “Zubees’ International”, in Staten Island, New York.
6 years ago, I moved to North Carolina and brought my mom from Ghana to stay with me and my two children. When my mom arrived in America, she was hospitalized and diagnosed with diabetes, high blood pressure and dementia. My mom’s sickness, coupled with my own struggles with high blood pressure and pre-diabetes, changed the trajectory of my cooking from “tasty” to “tasty & healthy”.
Being a health-conscious person, I knew the root cause of my mom’s diseases were food and lifestyle related. I made a decision to attend the Institute of Integrated Nutrition (IIN) to acquire more knowledge and skills needed to take care of her. I focused on making sure that my mum ate natural, wholesome foods while ensuring that she got daily exercise and made other lifestyle changes. Gradually, I nursed my mum back to good health, even her dementia got better. My mum decided to go back to Ghana after she got well.
Enthused with the success I had with my mother, I made a declaration to myself to use my cooking and wellness knowledge to help others reclaim their health as well. Diseases run rampant in modern society, and poor-quality food is a major contributor. Our food supply – both plant and animal – is drenched in dangerous chemicals. Even much more problematic is the excess of fast, disease causing foods in our communities.
Allow me to show you how to use food as medicine to take back control of your health, body and mind. You can get started by reading my blogs.
Wishing You Vital Health & Abundance,
