The goal of Grandma’s Soup is to make a stressful time less stressful by taking the guess work out of proper nutrition during times of illness. Life-threatening illness affects individuals and families at alarming rates. When a diagnosis of a life-threatening illness is given, nutrition is often the first thing to fall by the wayside. 52.5% of all deaths in the US stem from heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Cancer alone affects one in every three people before the age of 75 and the average American consumes more than 1 pound of refined sugar a day. Studies show that nearly 33% of life-threatening illness can be “prevented” simply by changing what we eat.
