Spend More Time Eating Together

Spending more time with your family at dinnertime should be a priority

Spending More Time Eating Together Builds Vocabulary

A team at the Harvard Ed School wanted to know where children learned the rare words that they had found were particularly good markers of literacy. Of the 2,000 words they were looking for, only 143 of them came from parents reading to their children. More than 1,000 were learned at the dinner table. This is why dinner loses its power when we isolate kid meals from adult meals. My 7-year-old isn’t going to be able to teach my 5—year—old all those rare words (though I’m sure she could teach her about 250 euphemisms for, oh, just about any bathroom word). I can only imagine how much worse it will be once they are teenagers.

 

Is Our Wheat Toxic?

When I finished reading this article I just knew I had to share it.

My passion is food and using premium and pure ingredients is the cornerstone of my business and how I live my life. To think that farmers use Roundup days before harvesting the wheat we consume is alarming. At the root of all this is the gigantic corporation Monsanto. To get into what Monsanto has been doing in the agriculture business is a whole different story. Try watching this movie GMO OMG to get the real answers on Monsanto.

A considerable number of my customers are Gluten Free, and this is increasing all the time.

Why the sudden increase in this intolerance?  Some believe it is linked to the chemical Roundup produced by Monsanto. Please read this article and tell a friend, more exposure to this crisis helps.
