Welcome to Recipe Hippie, where you can find a free spirited approach towards home cooking! I need you to say PEACE OUT to the person you used to be when reading recipes, and I need the confident ‘home cook’ in that body to emerge!
As a physical therapy assistant in the home health care setting, I had the opportunity to enter the homes of hundreds of people from all different walks of life. From single room flats in affordable housing to 16 million dollar estates outside of Boston, one thing that everyone had in common was that they all enjoyed food.
There are subtle as well as obvious commonalities between our communities and across our cultures in regards to the food we choose to nourish our bodies.
During the time I was working, I could see obvious differences in the quality of ingredients, however the end result was always the same: A meal that satisfied one of two things; A craving or a hunger.
My absolute favorite way to connect with my patients was through our discussions about food.
