I’m Josie – I’m a CRNA, prior United States Army Major, medical missionary, mom, wife, foodie, and writer. This blog is “Food and Words for Nerds” because both still fascinate me. I’ve literally seen inside countless patients and I know this: what you eat matters. Especially over the long haul. So, most of the recipes will use simple, minimally processed ingredients. As for the “Words” part of the blog – you’ll get a peek inside the operating room and benefit from the insights I’ve gained by burning a pork chop or two.
