This weekend I shared my healthy treats at the Music for Mobility event, which raised money for a cerebral palsy home to purchase an all-terrain wheelchair for its residents to see the beach for the first time! I felt honored to participate, and I loved listening to the incredibly talented musicians performing at the event while standing by my table of organic and gluten, dairy, soy, refined sugar-free treats. I served pumpkin spice candied pecans (pictured below; recipe here), hummus and veggies, and quinoa fudge (recipe coming soon!). I also gave a speech on how Lyme disease has disabled me in many physical ways, but at the same time, it has also enabled me by cultivating greater compassion and a passion for healthy eating within me.
Overall, the day was a success because the event’s goal to fundraise $5,000 for the special wheelchair was surpassed, and over $7,000 was raised!! 🙂
