Gather to Cook:     

How often do you stress to cook alone... or not at all?

Invite friends to prepare a delicious, and nutritious salad.

Let cooking take center stage! 

Find yourself a very large bowl and two long handled spoons.

Assign each person to bring a chopping board, a knife, and a container to take food home.

Imagine bringing people together to cook. 

Request various ingredients.

Plan about an hour and a half to enjoy chopping and conversation.

Plan on doing this frequently with family and friends.

Tell me your stories!

Get your calories from nutritious foods:

The calories in juice and other flavored liquids come exclusively from dissolved sugar. 

Wouldn't you rather eat your calories ?  

Wouldn't you like get most of your water from vegetables and fruits rather that from a plastic bottle?


Eat close to a pound of greens and vegetables every day.

Cook steel cut oats with different fruits for breakfast.

Enjoy different legumes: mung beans, lentils, adzuki.

Top some of your meals with a fistful of nuts or seeds.

As a general rule drink only water.

Do not keep sweet drinks in the house.

Savor the first bite of every meal.

Relish good bread as a treat not a staple.

Develop a healthy relationship with food.

Practice mindful eating!

If you smoke, Quit!
