    Leanne mentioned a website where you could look up local food suppliers (farmers) in your area. Do you have that handy?

    Hey Abel – Sometimes I don’t know what I’d do without your show. Thank you for continuing to provide excellent interviews, informative, entertaining, and fresh health and nutriton information . I wish I could “contribute” more to your show but i’ll keep sending donations as I can afford to :)
    I was so happy to hear Leanne’s take on the family dinner. Even though my daughter and I have busy lives, and it’s almost always just the two of us, we sit down EVERYDAY to a meal together, that we have prepared together, and sit down to a table that we have set together. I’m shocked to hear that my friends don’t have the same values. But we’re all at different points. I agree with her on so many levels. I will be following her work more closely. thank you thank you thank you.
