Healthy food can be so healing!


Now, I will be the first one to admit that I love a quick café run every now and then, but sometimes all I need is a fresh, simple meal to help my body and spirit. This summer, my husband and I planted and grew (ok, I watched him plant and grow) a beautiful little garden full of spinach, onions, tomatoes and peppers. While we have yet to pick the tomatoes because they are still ripening, we’ve harvested a bunch of spinach and added the onions to a few recipes. It really is amazing to me how delicious these home grown veggies can be and cooking a meal from something we’ve grown from just a small seed is very satisfying.

At The Healing Center, we also have a flourishing roof-top garden that is overflowing with produce. Every time I climb to this 5th floor sanctuary, I find it so peaceful and it really helps to renew my spirit throughout the work day. When we first moved into this new building, I truly never knew how thankful I would be to have this so close. It is my escape and, if it’s my day to water, a wonderful excuse to be on top of the city catching some rays in the middle of the week!
