Heather Sharp is a former elementary school teacher, current SAHM, and lifelong foodie. Her world was rocked when it became clear that her tiny son had severe digestive issues. Those digestive issues were later followed by emergent developmental delays, and in the face of no diagnosis or guidance from the medical community, she began to investigate using diet to heal her son's gut. Two years later, her son is developing typically, and her family is feeling to good effects of a scaled down, whole foods diet. Not all of her recipes reflect the way that she, her husband, and son eat, but all of them celebrate the first step in creating a healthier food culture—cooking at home, controlling ingredients, and involving everyone in the family in the selection, personalization, and preparation of meals.
