Welcome to Cookie’s  Healthy Delectable Delites

Cookie – that’s her real name – has an inspirational story to tell, which could benefit some of you out there in cyberspace.   Perhaps one day she’ll tell it in detail in her new column. But,  in short, Cookie was given – to be blunt – a death sentence four years ago. Her liver had shut down, which, in turn, did a number on the rest of her body. With the help of a very caring husband, and  unusual self-determination, Cookie literally returned to the living, shocking doctors by bringing her vital signs back to near normal. The only thing, besides sheer determination this could be attributed to is her diet. Cookie cut out salt  and fried food from her diet, while finding healthy substitutes.   Perhaps  Cookie’s doctors should take a lesson  – or recipe or two – from  Cookie to give to their other patients in similar situations as Cookie was in.   But that’s only a fraction of her story. Chapter 2 to  come.  Here’s the first edition of  Cookie’s Healthy Delectable Delights. Let us know what you think – or contact Cookie directly at leonardmichelson@yahoo.com. Perhaps she’ll even get you some coupons.
