Posted by Divine Chef on

We envision this store to be a great stop for tips & resources for all things to do with food, cooking and looking good.  The awareness that the wrong food make the body very sick started in 2004 when my mum was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, while having no visible symptoms. She was not a smoker yet it all started in her lungs. Was it her dietary habits of eating additive laden food ? Maybe. Was it her hormone replacement therapy that went awry ? Don't know.
