great fast meals
Since May 2017 a medical condition has forced me and my family
to begin what many call a whole foods, plant based, oil free diet.
Because of our Byzantine heritage and tradition,
and because we do it for love of each other,
we call it perpetual fasting and its not as difficult as you might think.

Let me tell you my story...
"It isn’t about a diet, or bodily health, or penance, or community, or any of the other things I had imagined that fasting was all about."
Learning to observe the fast a lifelong journey,
and I'm not done wandering yet!
