At that time, due to the devastating effects of Multiple Sclerosis on my body, I was barely able to care for myself, unable to drive, work or perform any repetitive motion using my body especially my hands. I found myself legally disabled by the age of 40 with a life horizon that was not promising. Most in my situation end their lives either bed ridden, homeless and/or institutionalized.Since 2004 I have made a focused effort to question the status quo with regard to almost everything in life especially healthcare/wellness. As a result the use of food as my medicine coupled with movement have almost 100% reversed the devastating blows of MS! No drugs needed! Today, I have committed my person, 100% to the movement & will not stop shouting it from the rooftops. Self-care is healthcare.When I first started using food as medicine I virtually had no use of my hands. Embarking on a Paleo lifestyle is intimidating to those who have hands let alone who do not! This is due to the perception of Paleo being a labor-intensive way of eating. PaleoBOSS Lady™ has mastered a Paleo lifestyle with an approach that debunks those myths & offers culinary excellence!Many of the recipes have been modified from my family holiday traditional meals and some are simply Italian classis dishes made Paleo perfect. Even a few recipes are traditions I created for my life that are rooted in my culture. I am honored to share this with you & hope that it is the starting place for many meals that hold a lifetime of memoires! Mangiare!
