Thanksgiving eRecipe Book

This Thanksgiving the Charlie Foundation is especially thankful for having friends like Dara and Juno Pierre-Louis, who graciously prepared the dishes for this Thanksgiving eRecipe Book.  Nehe, their seven year old son and the eldest of three, was cured of his epilepsy by the Ketogenic Diet. In 2015 Nehe was having up to 100 seizures per day.  Like many children, he was put on medication after medication, combination after combination, but nothing was working and the seizures continued.   This took its toll on Nehe’s physical and mental wellbeing, and the family feared that their son’s health and vibrant personality would never return.  In June 2015, Nehe seized uncontrollably for days in a state of status epilepticus.   On day  6, Nehe started the Ketogenic diet.  After four days, Nehe was well enough to return home.  Six months after starting the diet and weaning all medications Nehe became seizure free.  He will be two years seizure and medication free on January 1, 2018. Download our eRecipe Book now and learn how to create delicious and nutritious Thanksgiving recipes the whole family will love.

Thank you so much for this wonderful resource! We have a question regarding the stuffing recipe. The ingredients are in grams and they are such a tiny amount. Are we supposed to multiply it by a certain amount of servings in order to be able to make it? Our 15 yr old is on a MAD diet and we are trying to advance his diet to being Ketogenic (for seizure control). Thank you.
