Welcome to my project :)

Thank you for visiting my site! 

A little about me...I am currently undergoing treatment for stage 3 breast cancer. I love cooking and eating, and during my research on how to conquer cancer, I've found that the food you eat can play a large role in mitigating side effects, as well as preventing the onset and recurrence of cancer. 

I've come across many healthy recipes through cookbooks and online recipe blogs. However, it has been difficult to find recipes that suit local tastes and utilize products found in our islands.   

Through this site, I hope to help other cancer patients in Hawaii to eat healthy by providing:
  • Recipes that match local tastes
  • Cooking tips
  • Healthy eats at local restaurants
  • Nutritional information
  • Where to find healthy ingredients
I welcome comments or suggestions!  Please email me: mika@healthygrindz.com

  • Hello World!
    ...more like hello to myself, since I'm the only reader of this site at the moment ;)  I've always eaten fairly healthy, but after my breast cancer diagnosis in September 2015, I've upped my game.  I've been learning a lot along the way and want to use this site as a forum to share what I've learned.  The website is just a starting point...I have some big ideas in store for the future :)  Stay tuned!
