Home – Come Back To The Table


 

Welcome to Come Back to the Table

We ask so much of ourselves today! Women and men both have challenging jobs that require huge commitments of time and energy, but it doesn’t stop there.

We have spousal and family relationships that require time, attention, and nurturing. We have hobbies and interests; homes that need decorating, landscaping, cleaning, and maintenance; we have children who require our loving presence, attention and guidance, not to mention chauffering! And we’re fueling all those demands on our energy with fast food, convenience foods, and take-out. It doesn’t work.

We need real food, honest food, full of vitamins and minerals, and so do our families. I invite you to come back to the table, to savor the difference real food can make in your energy level and your sense of well-being. I invite you to learn simple food preparation, with fresh ingredients, seasonal cooking that anchors us, that lets us live in harmony with the rhythms of the Earth.
