Not everyone loves to cook, but most people enjoy eating. I enjoy both – the cooking and the eating. Oftentimes I find that cooking or baking a new recipe keeps my mind busy and offers a great distraction from everything going on around me. Bonus points: when you cook your own food, you control what goes in it. Controlling what is in your food can give you peace of mind, and could help you manage your weight if desired. There are also those who believe the right diet can alleviate symptoms. Here I will provide some recipes that have been tested and loved, and you can decide for yourself how you feel about this whole in-the-kitchen idea.
