Mealtime Management; the ultimate self empowerment says Chef Tom

Mealtimes are so much more than food or fiber or carbs or calories. Mealtimes are the moments of renewal that should allow for –

  • A moment of reflection to assess how you got here, how this moment became now and you became the person you are today
  • A moment of planning as you literally choose the “new you” you are to become, the paths that will open to you, the awareness you will experience.
  • A moment of reverance as you wash, cut, cook and prepare the fruits of the earth, gifts from the sun whose energy will be transformed into your being and your volition.
