Welcome to Come Back to the Table

We ask so much of ourselves today! Women and men both have challenging, demanding jobs that require huge commitments of time and energy.

We have families that require time, attention, and nurturing, children who require our loving presence, attention and guidance. We have homes that need care and maintenance. Fueling all these demands on our energy with fast food, convenience foods, and take-out doesn't work.

We need real food, honest food, full of vitamins and minerals, and so do our families. I invite you to come back to the table, to savor the difference real food can make in your energy level and your sense of well-being. I invite you to learn simple food preparation with fresh ingredients, seasonal eating that anchors us, that lets us live in harmony with the rhythms of the Earth.

Testimonials

What you eat matters.  Linda shares her depth and breadth of knowledge and resources about nutrition, food preparation, being in balance, eating locally, living wholly – and more – with humor, fascination, expertise and care. 

Peggy Short, Ph.D., D.Min.

I was a student in Linda’s class on Rebuilding your Gut. She made a difficult topic fun and easy to understand. Her years of cooking experience, inclusive approach, and sense of humor, put everyone at ease. Linda is quick to pick up on people’s needs, and shapes the class to meet those needs. I love the recipes we received, they are nutritious, easy to prepare and colorful! I have used them many times since I finished the class. They all seem to turn out well!

Linda is very generous with her time and willingness to answer questions in and outside of class. Her demeanor is warm and welcoming. By the end of class we all had some new friends and new tools to improve our health.

Linda facilitates an immense learning experience in easy to understand language, and teaches cooking skills accessible to absolutely everyone. I learned new habits that I was able to easily and immediately implement, and still continue to this day. Her knowledge and experience in gut health, nutrient dense meals, and easy kitchen & cooking methods far surpassed my expectations. The class was super fun and informative. For anyone who is interested in optimal health, I HIGHLY recommend Rebuild Your Gut!

“I began Linda’s Rebuild Your Gut class shortly before starting chemotherapy treatment. The wealth of information and recipes Linda shared with the class was invaluable to taking the best care of myself that I could during chemo and keeping myself cancer-free after treatment.”

After a course of antibiotics…

October 24, 2017

  As part of the protocol after surgery, it is pretty automatic to be given antibiotics to prevent infection.   Because the antibiotics destroy gut bacteria, it’s especially important to start taking a probiotic as soon as the antibiotic is finished. From Garden of Life, Raw Probiotics 5 Day Max Care, it supplies 400 billion cells…
