The Shared-Meal Revolution is Released
What is a common health regimen that Dr. Oz, Chef Jamie Oliver and Dan Buettner, founder of Blue Zones, agree on? Shared meal practices is a major health benefit that these three well-known health and wellness experts have openly discussed and encouraged, a strong belief author Carol Archambeault holds in her new book, "The Shared-Meal Revolution."
Archambeault's book combines the research she collected along with her first-hand experiences and relevant resources to create a how-to guide to help those who want to practice the important regimen of sharing a meal with loved ones.
"People want to have the opportunity to communicate in person, catch-up on what's happening with each other and relax," Archambeault said. "Instead, because of our hyperactive lives, we are treating mealtime as another chore on our to-do list. It's important to keep connected with others every day and not only through social media."
"The Shared-Meal Revolution" takes the reader through the steps of understanding, planning, implementing and sustaining a shared-meal practice. It contains valuable research about the wide-ranging benefits of sharing meals such as healthier eating habits and nutrition, positive social skills and feeling stable and secure. By offering strategies, templates and post-chapter exercises, readers are encouraged to develop a shared-meal plan to fit their lives.
"My goal is to create a national dialogue about the benefits of shared meals so we can work together to preserve this important ritual for today's and future generations," Archambeault said.
