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.
Burbank, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2014
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.
