Welcome to Comfort & Heal. I'm Raquel and I'm so glad you are here. I've created this space with the heart in mind. As someone who has gone through a series of heart-breaking losses in my life-love, family, home, identity-all in a very abbreviated amount of time, I needed a way to dig myself out of my own rubble and return to the things I've loved and missed.
I know many of you are living your own battles at this very moment and need a light, a beacon to remind you that you matter and are loved. Believe me, Friend, you are loved beyond measure. I hope that you will find comfort in my words, my recipes, and all the other amazing things I discover that bring me joy and wisdom in these heavy times that can challenge and change us. I truly believe that you don't have to be a doctor to heal yourself, you just have to know that you're worth it.
Join me on this journey and discover what you've been missing. Or just linger for a bit, free of worry, free of suffering, free to just be. This space is for all of us. We're all nursing wounds. Breathe. Rest assured, there is nothing but comfort here to heal us.
Raquel is not a medical professional and doesn't pretend to offer expert medical advice, in fact, she's known to not even take some of her own regular, good advice. But she does know a thing or two about food, and has been a passionate advocate for fairness, equality and allowing all voices to be represented and heard when it comes to food and health access. She has a way of putting people at ease and always has one more minute to listen when you need it most.
