Does your current mealtime routine consist of eating on the run, picking up fast food at the drive-through, or grabbing food "cafeteria style" Do the members of your household dash away from the kitchen each night and gobble a microwave meal alone in their rooms? Are you too overwhelmed at the end of your day to make a meal with your family or loved ones happen? The Shared-Meal Revolution: How to Reclaim Balance and Connection in a Fragmented World through Sharing Meals with Family and Friends by popular blogger and writer Carol Archambeault offers the help we need. The book takes the reader through the steps of understanding, planning, implementing, and sustaining a shared-meal practice. It contains valuable research about the many benefits of sharing meals, helpful resources, and easy-to-use post-chapter exercises, allowing readers to develop a shared-meal plan to fit their lives. In this eye-opening examination of a vital, yet neglected, American ritual, Archambeault proposes that when we abandon the shared-meal experience, we starve ourselves of the connection that is as necessary to our survival as the actual food we eat. Through Archambeault's collection of research of the many developmental benefits sharing meals affects (social, psychological, physical, cultural, spiritual, academic, and creative) and her relatable personal experiences, readers are provided with the tools they need to create their own shared-meal plan. We are desperate to feel closeness with our children, spouses, family, and friends and would welcome a strategy that will help us address a host of distractions that deter us from gathering together for a meal. The Shared-Meal Revolution explains how we can help reverse the forces of modern culture that promote alienation and rebuild meaningful connection through sharing meals. The book is for everyone-parents, families, couples, and single people-to learn how to reclaim mealtimes, leading to

About the Author:

In The Shared-Meal Revolution: How to Reclaim Balance and Connection in a Fragmented World through Sharing Meals with Family and Friends, Carol Archambeault explains how sharing meals is fundamental to achieving life balance and creating meaningful interpersonal connection with those we love. Carol was born in Connecticut as the youngest sibling in a family of four sisters and six brothers (including her twin brother). She was raised by loving parents in a household where food and family intertwined. When she became a mother, she continued the shared-meal ritual as a way to foster development of her own daughter and son. When Carol planned the research for her graduate thesis, she landed on her own family as the perfect source for a multigenerational study. This effort revealed a deeper understanding of how the shared-meal ritual impacts family members from early childhood through late adulthood. The Shared-Meal Revolution is the result of both research and inspiration. After receiving her MA in human development in 2007 from Pacific Oaks College (California), Carol became motivated to continue her work on shared meals to promote a universal understanding of how a shared-meal ritual can enhance the lives of individuals, families, communities . . . and American society. Currently residing in Los Angeles, California, Carol shares ideas and stories about creating rich meal and lifestyle experiences in her blog Shared Meals Matter on her website www.shared-meals.com, as well as through articles in online and print media. Carol enjoys dual citizenship in Italy and is working on her next book, which explores shared-meal practices in other countries. The working title is Sharing Meals-Global to Local.
