We prefer to sip our coffee, but we’re eternally grateful for this discovery. p. 28 NO COOKIN’, GOOD LOOKIN’ More than half of Americans don’t eat breakfast every day, making it the most frequently skipped meal in the U.S. Our theory? They don’t have time to cook!

My book Joy’s Simple Food Remedies is all about the healing powers of food. I show people how to use natural, holistic remedies to prevent or cure common conditions: headaches, belly fat, low energy, anxiety, and so much more!
