Ask yourself the following questions:
If the answer to these questions is yes, now think about your caregiving story.
Is this a dish that brings the family together?
Does it provide comfort to your loved one to help you make it or do they simply enjoy eating your offering?
How does caring for your loved one make you feel and how does food enhance those feelings?
Even if you’re uncertain, tell your story to the best of your ability and we will reach out with additional questions if needed.
You will first complete a form of intention. Once your form of intention is accepted, you will be provided a form to complete that will ask for all pertinent information, your caregiving story and your recipe.
Your story cannot exceed 500 words. Think about sharing the lessons you’ve learned as a caregiver, how your caregiving journey has transformed your life, where and how have you found peace in your journey? Share a humorous story around caregiving, cooking or life with your loved one. Ask Spirit to guide you in your sharing and let it flow.
