THE FAMILY TABLE: Nourishing Mind and Body

Tips for eating, connecting and savoring around your family table…

This month we use the concept of ‘instant’ to help speed up cooking, and, slow down our expectations of having children and youth comply ‘instantly’ to our requests.


Celebrate the Season with Gifts that Promote Health

Gifts are a way to show family and friends that we care about them all year long. What are some gift items that promote health and communicate that we care about the recipient? Here are a few ideas that you can mail to your recipients in case you are not able to get together.
