Whitehead quoted, “Children are the living message we send to a time we will not see.” At age 12, Mandy wanted to adopt a child. Learning that there were over 400,000 children in Foster Care was unthinkable! That dream took time through many amazing adventures with children filling up all the spaces. At Cal Poly, Mandy graduated with fancy degrees, cooking and nutritional credentials but the important stuff was how many children and childrens’ homes found joy! How each child is awesome because of a special gift they possess! Mandy loves sharing the importance of the food we put in our bodies. If you want greatness, you must eat great! If you want fun, you must eat fun! Having 4 children, Mandy has now fostered several children and adopted only 1! Her inspiration to step out into the big world and share, was through a little 2-year-old foster boy with cancer who called her Mommy. After restoring his health with great food, despite chemo, Dak had the right to move back with his Bio-Dad. Surviving on Cheetos, coke and marshmallows, our weekly visits ended as Dak passed away at 4- years-old within 6 months. Holding this little guy in her arms as he passed, his last words inspire Mandy from this day forward. Life comes with some powerful lessons. Mandy intends to use experience, knowledge, and inspiration to reach out and help every kid and family she can touch! Join us as we continue to blow the roof off of hate, fear, anger, prejudice, and bad food and fill it with love, peace, forgiveness and good, healthy food that nourishes!
My hope is to inspire a healthy life, full of fun, for you and your family, by sharing my success experiences.
