About

Food Empowerment is about taking charge of your food choices. We live in a day and age where information is readily available, and yet people seem to know less and less about their food, how it is produced and where it originates. This website, and my book, Ditching the Drive-Thru, are about taking back the power over what is on your dinner plate.

Check back soon for upcoming author events!  I will start planning my book talks, time management sessions, and food preservation classes in the next couple of months.

I am available for book talks, time management seminars, food-preparation-time management seminars, and food preservation classes that include lacto-fermentation, hot-water bath canning, and pressure canning.  I can also provide seminars in things to do with preserved food from cooking with dehydrated foods to other things to do with lacto-fermented vegetables besides eating them right out of the jar.
