About Mandy and the Renovation Movement!


Welcome to Real Food Recovery, a positive site about changing the future for at-risk kids. We engage hope, natural remedies and good food. Hopefully, our efforts to have fun and find better health will encourage families in their own homes as well as change the food programs for group homes.

Learning that there were over 400,000 children in Foster Care and that an increasing rate of children were becoming autistic is alarming. The dream to help grew.

Real Food Recovery emerges out of this desire to help children in families and in group homes. We know how the right foods can improve the body.


Our company, BLUMESTONE, renovates; homes, hotels, restaurants and more to make them more beautiful.  We realize the parallel and great importance of renovating our bodies too. Renovating buildings requires good materials. Similarly, renovating bodies requires good ingredients. Choosing local, whole, real food, and the least processed food improves the fun and health of life. Because of this, Real Food Recovery began. It is the non-profit and passionate arm of our business.

Currently, Mandy partners with a local Foster Group Homes, police athletic league (PALS), and Autistic events. Creating a less processed menu or teaching weekly classes with the kids helps to educate and hopefully improve the future health.

The reward is when staff members, outside therapists and teachers recognize improvement of a child; better behavior, healthier growth, and better grades.

  1. I am a school counselor at a small but vibrant school with high poverty and many of my parents do not speak English. We have a healthy garden at our school where professional gardeners come to our school and teach our students how to garden and our children do the gardening. It began as a means to feed our students healthy food – the children have always been allowed to pick and take home what they and their families will eat. Now it has become so successful that not only are we feeding our students and their families, but our students are also selling their fresh produce to local restaurants :0)We have a bank at our school, so they are learning how to bank from real bankers and are saving the proceeds from the garden for their college education. You should consider working with schools to spread your healthy living to as many children as possible.

  2. That is the coolest thing I have heard! Yes, we should get involved with schools! You guys rock and all the schools should follow your lead!

    Mandy Blume,
    We noticed that you will be speaking at the WAP Conference in November. We have an online course that helps families transition from Fake Foods (Processed) to real foods. My wife has been a chapter leader for WAP for over 16 years and spoke at the last conference. We are writing to determine if there is any chance of coordinating an interview with you while you are there for the purpose of introducing you to our members. We would be happy to promote your book to them as well. If this is something you may consider, please contact me at Bud@Foodwifery.Com. For purposes of vetting, our website at Foodwifery.Com and Sally Fallon has provided help in promoting us and knows my wife Laurie.
    Thanks you for your consideration,
