There’s a quote by Khalil Gibran that stirs my soul like a bowl of fresh-whipped cream:
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.

I also support couples in preparing their body and home for natural, radiant pregnancy and healthy babies.

The Barefoot Cook Manifesto
I dream of a world…
Where smiling at a stranger on the bus is reciprocated with a grin – not a look of confusion.
Where we’re comfortable borrowing a cup of fresh milk (or a handful of sourdough starter) from our neighbors.
Where we know our local farmers on a first-name basis, and greet them with a bearhug.
Where we remember each other’s birthdays, anniversaries, and favorite heirloom tomatoes.
Where nutrition is simple, cooking is joyful – and our hearts, minds & bodies are well-fed & free.
Where our soil is renewed, and our waters are pure.
Where frustration & fear about the future are replaced with certainty & pride.
Where people are nourished, not sick. Empowered, not weakened.
Where we take what we need, when we need it and give back more than we ever thought possible.
Where we place our bare feet on the ground, just to take the earth’s pulse.
