What Women Must Know – Healing Through the Sharing of Food with Dorothy Mullen – 06.11.15

Dorothy Mullen is the founder of the Suppers Programs — a network of nearly free-to-users programs in New Jersey that serves people who want to cook together, eat together and prevent, manage or reverse chronic illness through lifestyle changes.  She is also a leader in the community gardening movement.   The Suppers model slashes through tired assumptions and conventional wisdom about how to get healthy and prizes personal experimentation with food, exercise and behavioral change.  Her conviction that “healing is a social experience” led to a program design where people gather and try different styles of eating – vegan, Paleo, macrobiotic, low carb, etc.  In the safe and friendly settings of private homes and small public venues, people learn which foods make them feel stable, happy, and healthy.  She has trained 50 volunteer facilitators – mostly women – who understand how crucial home food preparation is for health and wellbeing.   Dorothy has a Masters degree in addictions counseling from the College of New Jersey.  In her private practice she uses addiction models to help people turn around entrenched eating behaviors that have placed them at risk for chronic health problems and addiction. Dorothy is the  author of  Logical Miracles.  http://www.thesuppersprograms.org
