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 show you!

As you may already know, my family has been advised by our cardiologist to adopt a perpetual fast in order to combat a family health crisis.  We've adopted a whole-foods, plant-based, no oil diet...just like our Eastern Christian fast!...full time, and now that  we've done it, I can help you get through 40 days of fasting too.
