I like to take everything I hear with a rounded spoonful of skepticism, because plenty of stories out there are simply too good to be true. In fact, if this weren’t the story of my own life, my own malfunctioning colon, and my own seemingly miraculous recovery, I’d probably dismiss it as bunk. But the fact is, I was in chronic pain for months on end several years ago. I was diagnosed with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) by my physician. And in the past four years, eating a vegan diet, I have had exactly zero IBS-related “episodes.”
The wonderful and charismatic Christy Morgan, aka. The Blissful Chef, asked me to share my story on her blog. Read about my IBS misery and recovery here.
Christy is a chef and food educator in L.A. who specializes in vegan, macrobiotic food! She has seasonal e-cookbooks available for purchase and a full-length physical cookbook coming out next year. I can hardly wait! She’s currently visiting Japan, working on farms, sampling the food at vegan-friendly restaurants, and getting a firsthand look at the town where the infamous dolphin slaughter takes place.
