Wellness and positivity are promoted in every aspect of her life, whether it is through her book, My Kitchen Cure, or her contributing segments on Today In Nashville – Mee Inspires others to participate in their wellness physically, emotionally & spiritually.
In what was once a food desert, she and her husband Lee, created Pinewood Farms where they grow bio-dynamic produce, raise grass fed – grass finished beef, and pasture wood raised pork. Mee believes in building community through food and provides nutritional education and nourishing meals at her farm-to-table restaurant, Pinewood Kitchen & Mercantile located on Pinewood Farms 45 minutes west of downtown Nashville. No one goes hungry under Mee’s watch as she feeds everyone in the
community regardless of their ability to pay.
Mee McCormick doesn’t believe there is one food path to wellness and she recognizes that we all have different needs and desires. In Pinewood this inclusive belief system makes for an amazing spread of gorgeous food. Mee’s expansive food point-of-view combines her classical French training, down-home American cooking, vegetarian, macrobiotic, vegan, paleo, keto, food allergy training and clean eating, with a deep understanding through her own personal experience. Digestive disease has been a part of Mee’s story as her mother suffered from this affliction her entire adult life and died at the age of 39. When Mee was 25 she too fell ill with a debilitating digestive disease and she was determined to change her life’s outcome. Mee cooked her way to wellness,
changing her plate and changing her fate.
