Imagine at the end of your day, you arrive at your kitchen, in a calm dreamy state. You ground your bare feet into the floor and feel the earth beneath them. You lean into the counter, palms pressed against the cool stone, feeling the humming of the world around you. You close your eyes. You breathe deeply. You set an intention.

This meal is made with love for the people I love.

This meal will nourish and nurture them.

This moment is my moment to breathe and get lost in the magic of creation.

Let this tender moment be the beginning…not, ‘yet another task to complete as quickly as possible to rush the nighttime routine.’  Not, ‘make dinner with three ingredients in twenty minutes.’ Not, ‘let’s just order in and think, talk, be, do, it tomorrow.’
