Eating together with those we love, eating nutritious food that has been prepared with love – this can nourish our inner needs, as well as our bodies. Taking time at meals to talk to each other and enjoy the meal as a shared sacrament is rare today. We need to slow down, take time to prepare nutritious meals and rearrange our schedules so that we can be together.”
