About JulietAA
Joined June 2015
My name is Juliet,
I am a mother of four great children. Two young adults and two teenagers.
I love music, especially singing and playing my violin.
My passion is for everything about food, I mean experimenting with cooking, studying about food and food nutrition, writing unique recipes and staying healthy by consuming the right food.
I started cooking and making juices at the age of nine, putting a twist to recipes and creating my own recipes.

What got me researching into African food nutrition was an aerobics 30 day plan I was starting. They had a 30 day food plan with all the nice healthy food but none of them was African. Hence my food journey!

Here at WA, I am looking forward to building a website that would enlighten the whole world about the health benefits in African meals. I would not mind making some money while I'm at it.

UPGRADE - July 2017
Thanks to WA, I have built my website. I also have a book published and on sale at Amazon.

I just followed you because of your sincerity and your honest smile. You are accomplishing plenty and I am sure you are a good patient mama. I played the violin at one time and the piece I had to learn was 'Little Briar Rose.' That is the one that stuck me and made me realize I was more the 'Rose of Sharon' or Mother Maybelles 'Wildwood Flower' type. Best wishes.

Hi Juliet and thanks for following me. It's nice to meet you.
While living in New Orleans and cooking the local cuisine I encountered some African influences. That was another life as we're living in Costa Rica now. On the Caribbean coast we've got a blended island, African and Spanish thing going on. I'll be happy to look into your site to learn more.
Stay well and have a great evening.
Dan

Hi Juliet, I see you love cooking, I have been overcooking my veggies for years, now I either steam for 5 minutes or stir fry until they are fresh and crispy, now I am wondering why i wasted my veggies all these years; I prepared some recently for a friend from NY who was eating out in expensive restaurants for 2 weeks and his remarks was; "this is the best meal I have eaten in the past 2 weeks".

Yes Codevonish,
I do love cooking. Stir fry would be better for veg. Steam is 100 degrees centigrade or more, it has a great capability of draining nutrients from vegetables.
I cook my veg with no water and in a cookware that's cooks at 86 degrees centigrade. This retains about 88-90% of nutrients.

Congrats, Juliet! That's wonderful! How did you publish your book? My mother wrote her life story for us kids, and so many people wanted a copy that I wore out my printer making them. Thanks for following me. Followed you back. By the way, I love your profile pic. Was it a professional photo? Carol

Thanks Carol,
For my book, I used self publishing. You are allowed to order whenever you want but they can be pricey.
Photo, no a friend took the photo when I was not looking, makes it look so natural.
Thanks for following me back.

Hello Juliet,
Would love to try this out. Just wondering if African dishes differ greatly from Caribbean. Curry and turmeric have lots of benefits. By the way, I'm putting together a site to sell my music. It's dabeatbox.com. It's a work in progress but fell free to have a look. Much success to you.

Good afternoon Juliet,

First of all, playing an instrument is good for one's soul, when I was quite a bit younger I also played various instruments and wrote little bits of music.
Then this about food, brilliant! I bet African Food has not been influenced as much as the food in our world so has not all this additives and toxins which are so bad for our health. I write about that on one of my websites.
In case you need a good source for writing do have a look at my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, you might find it helpful.
Thank you for the follow and good luck.

Regards, Taetske

African food is being diluted as well, I hope to signpost Africans back to the quality of our original food. While I'm at it I hope to enlighten the whole world about how healthy and nutritious African food is. I will definitely be visiting your site and posts
Thanks again

I like your idea for creating a 30 day food plan that consist of African meals. I am an athlete so I am always looking for new ways to improve my own eating habits so I will check out your site and your posts for inspiration. No matter what level you make it to there is always room to learn. I hope you find success on WA.

Hello Juliet, nice to meet you. Thank you for the follow and all the best in achieving your goals at Wealthy Affiliate. I remember when my mother found out she was diabetic and had to change her dietary habits. On reviewing the recommendation none were Jamaican so she did the same as you and researched what foods she could cook that was Jamaican and all of us would enjoy. She did have training in home economics at that time.
