The Girl Who Couldn't Eat

Can you imagine not being able to eat?  This short article was in Parade Magazine last week and caught my eye.  Matisse Reid, now a 5th grader, was born without a functioning digestive system and lived off of a feeding tube until last year when she received a large & small intestine transplant.  Even when she wasn't able to eat, she cooked, created recipes, watched the Food Network, and started a cooking blog.  She is ok now but will always be on anti-rejection medication.  Seeing food and not being able to eat it would be torture for me.

Read the short article to find out what she chose for her first meal:

Here is her blog:
