Newbie – Back to Basics

I have recently moved to a new area and made several new friends. Two weeks ago one of my new friends was diagnosed with cancer and had an aggressive surgery to remove as much as they could. Of course I volunteered to help with whatever was needed, but I was surprised when I got a phone call asking for advice with how to eat to prevent any further complications. I was overjoyed that she would think to ask me and then I immediately was flushed with fear. I do not want to give false hope or over simplify the situation. I took a minute and sat down. I thought about how I felt when I first found out about the healing and health promoting power of foods. It can be so overwhelming and just so new. I made small list of Books, Movies, and Websites that could help her and her family on this journey when I can’t be there to answer her questions. I wanted to just share that list with you. These are all great resources no matter where you are on your whole food journey and they serve many purposes in promoting a healthy lifestyle. Leave a comment if you want to add to the list of “must read/watch”
