Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

You are never given a wish without being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.
In order to win, you must expect to win.

Hi everyone! I joined the team last week and wanted to introduce myself! My name is Val and I presently live in Chicago where I manage an independent coffee shop, write, read, and cook (amongst other things). I love real food and am glad that encouraging people to eat whole foods is a prominent feature of Spark. I love baking bread and since Christmas have been grinding my own flour and grains. I brew beer as well, though I'm certainly not drinking as much of it as I used to :-) A few times a week I post healthy tastes-spotting blogs on my sparkpage that feature some delicious recipe that I prepared (and enjoyed, naturally!) Come May I'll be working at the local farmers market where I have the pleasure of talking about food with people and get paid in all the organic vegetables I want! Can't wait! I look forward to sharing some stories and recipes with you all soon!
