In this hectic day and age of modern convenience foods, where you can grab food on the go practically anytime, anywhere, why would anyone decide to spend time cooking at home, from scratch?! Nevra Ledwon, cooking instructor and aficionado, gives plenty of reasons why--from the joy and pleasure of the process, to the sense of accomplishment and freedom that accompanies nourishing our families ourselves. On today's episode, Nevra also gives us plenty of practical ideas that empower us to take decisive steps toward our kitchens and the preparation of nourishing meals.
Along the way, she tells us the story of how, as a young girl, she became inspired to cook and how it led to her can-do attitude when it comes to cooking up new dishes. In addition, she gives us easy tips for how to transition from being consumers to creators. She suggests that meal planning may go far in relieving the stress that can characterize many busy families today, giving us more time for joy in our interactions with one another and in our kitchens.

Most people turn to the ketogenic diet to lose weight or to enhance athletic performance. Today, nutritionist Miriam Kalamian, author of “Keto for cancer,” explains how this diet is a powerful tool for improving our health overall. She tells how her son's cancer diagnosis launched her on a mission to explore the possibility of nutritional therapy to improve his outcome. When she came across the keto diet, she saw promise. And once she changed how he was eating to align with keto, she saw its efficacy. Science backs up what she witnessed first-hand. Not only does the keto diet help cancer patients live longer, it also allows them to enjoy a much higher quality life.
On this episode, we discuss the origins of the healing keto diet, how it works on a cellular level, and why it is an effective and safe treatment for cancer. Miriam explains how nutrition can be the first line of defense for cancer treatment & recovery of health, or, how, at the very least, it can be an adjunct to conventional therapies.
