The Mystic Cookbook came into my life a few years ago now and it changed my life. As many of you may or may not know, I have Anaphylaxis. I live my daily life with allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish. In 1998, I nearly lost my life due to an allergic reaction to almonds. In 1999, I had a second near-fatal allergic reaction while pregnant with our third son, after which I was hospitalized for more than a week.
The book helped change my relationship with food and eating. - Elizabeth Hamilton-Guarino
