Eat Well with Good People
I come from three generations of hotel and restaurant owners and I’m Jewish, so food has always been a big part of my life.
September is one of the holiest months for those who practice Judaism — Rosh Hashanah, Fast of Gedalish, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Hoshanah Rabbah, Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah are all celebrated now. And whether they require fasting or feasting, food is center stage.
And this brings me to this issue, which focuses on restaurants, local farms and food distributors that offer high quality, nutritious and tasty foods you can feel good about eating. We also feature SunButter in this issue, which is a great substitute for peanut butter whether you’re allergic to peanuts or not. Also, don’t miss our Health Report, which talks about the dangers of antibiotics and farmed meats.
Although good food is often the center of celebrations, when it comes down to it the people you’re celebrating with, not the food on the table, are the most important part of the meal. Eating well and eating mindfully is important, but whom you’re sitting next to or across from when you’re eating is what you should think back on fondly.
When you eat, eat well. Eat with others and enjoy your celebrations.
Eat up now, and we’ll talk about losing weight in a future issue.
