Charred Baby Gems, Salmon Salad with a Mango, Corn and Pepper Salsa

Sitting down to a good, delicious, healthy, colorful and beautiful meal is all about selfcare. However, do we look at our dining experiences as a regimen of self care? What if we did?

How would you prepare this time of self care? Looking at it from this perspective could determine what we decide to put on our plates and where we decide to dine out.

I like to think about what my body needs, what’s going to give me energy for the rest of the day or perhaps settle me in for the evening. I would like to invite you this week to look at your meal time as a moment to give yourself and those you love a bit of selfcare. As always, remember to Set the Table with Love. 💕
