Myrin “MFunk” New (bassist / percussionist) born and raised in Chicago, which is known for its genres in blues and jazz. His observation of artists performing from their “souls” has given him a quest to live the tradition of the performers he’s observed through out his years. True love for rhythm has inspired him to play passionately in drum circles with the African Djembe drum and other percussion instruments. Also, as a bass guitar player, he is inspired by legendary bassist Stanley Clarke, Sly Stone (Sly and the Family Stone) and Bernard Edwards (Chic).
EAT WITH FRIENDS
ENJOY COMMUNAL ACTIVITIES.
A few benefits of communal eating is pretty simple: Just gather some people together around food with a chef, sit down together, talk, eat, and enjoy! Meals with friends are way more appealing when one person doesn’t have to do all the work — just make sure to find out what dishes people like ahead of time so there aren’t eight mixed opinions when it’s time to eat.
One of the best parts about eating with friends — aside from the good company — is, well, eating. Funky Recipe food is delicious because it’s real food. Commitments are way harder to break when they’re scheduled in advance. With our group, we try to establish a meeting time that works for everybody the majority of the time — say, every Tuesday evening — and stick to it.
WE EXPERIMENT AND EXPERIMENT.
Expanding Nutritional Variety – This is a biggie for everyone because every time you expand the foods you eat, you expand the positive nutrition your body gets. When the new food is a fruit, vegetable or grain, you are getting the benefits of natural phytochemicals from the plants that can improve your immune system along with adding important nutrition.
Setting a Good Example – For parents and grandparents, this is seriously a top benefit. Parents and grandparents who try new foods and have fun doing it will raise kids who try new foods and have fun doing it. Kids, after all, deserve to experience all imaginable flavors so that they will grow up to be mindful eaters who appreciate everything on their plate.

ENERGIZE YOUR MIND AND BODY WITH GOOD FOOD.
We should be aiming to eat at least five different fruits and vegetables daily to get all the vitamins and minerals we need. If this feels overwhelming – or the idea of chopping up loads of vegetables when you can barely get out of bed feels a bit much – remember this is a target we can work towards, and that there are ‘optimum’ options out there, like food prepping, food processing and of course just out the ground.
Although what we eat is important, when we eat is even more crucial for our wellbeing. Eating little and often is the name of the game. We show how to do this in our demonstrations, which are limited to 8 people.
