Food and relating to food obsess me too, so I'm thrilled with this author's journey to delve deeply into her eating history and to seek authentic change of body-mind-spirit in the midst of overwhelming abundance. We also share living in the Bay Area and being longtime members of Full Belly Farm's CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).

I'm planning to employ one of Ms Macy's practices to help explore one of my blocks--the practice of measuring. "'The secret is there is no secret.' A portion is portion, and practice is practice. There are no shortcuts. Measuring, by its nature, requires me to pay attention to every portion. Measuring forms a container for my longings and boundaries for my lust. Without boundaries, I cannot find balance. Without limits, I cannot hope to be free." (p. 185)
