While Ame’s love of healthy baking and cooking spans over 30 years of research and experimentation, she reveals it wasn’t until her mother’s terminal cancer that she was compelled to look more deeply. “My mother’s diagnosis thrust me into my own health crisis, I knew it was time to feed myself better and pursue what truly nurtured me. I knew sugar was slowly destroying my life, yet I didn’t know how to free myself from its sticky grips. “
In this small accessible book, the journey is as much soulfully revelatory as nutritionally illuminating. Ame will guide you on a gentle yet powerfully healing path that she calls “awakening to a new frontier of food and its possibilities”. She states, “We all know simple quick fixes backfire and often hurt rather than help us, but that doesn’t mean lasting solutions to issues and real resolutions to our pain are beyond our reach. They are within our grasp, but we do we need to reach for them.” In fact, Ame’s guiding hand serves up 4 readily digestible steps to make your way lovingly forward to living your “sweet life...”
