Natalie Winch lives in southern New Jersey, not far from where she grew up, with her husband, children, and dogs. She currently works as a high school English teacher. When she isn’t mothering, preserving food, teaching, grading, or making lesson plans, Natalie runs the Hebrew School at her synagogue, coaches soccer, teaches lacto-fermentation classes, writes the occasional entry for her food empowerment blog TradsNotFads.com, and fights the dust bunnies that threaten to take over her family room. Her current literary crush is Wendell Berry.

It isn’t every day and anyone ends up with more blueberries than she ever imagined would be sitting in her kitchen.  But that is where I found myself this year after having the excellent luck of a friend offering for me to pick at his family’s blueberry patch because nobody else would be using them.  […]

J. Winch shared a quote
Ditching the Drive-Thru by J. Natalie Winch
“This book is a chronicle of how my family came to be where we are and what we learned along the way as well as a map to guide you on your own journey. I’ll even tell you the moral of the story upfront (the proverbial string tied to the gate of the labyrinth): You have more control over the food you eat than you think.”

J. Winch shared a quote
Ditching the Drive-Thru by J. Natalie Winch
“Studies conducted by the American Psychological Association, the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse, and various major universities support the assertion that there is a direct correlation between frequent family meals and children who are less likely to use illegal drugs, drink alcohol, and be sexually promiscuous. In addition, these children usually have better success in school, higher self-esteem, fewer problems with depression, and a lower incidence of obesity.”

“A colleague once asked me about community supported agriculture (CSA). When I explained how it worked—driving to the farm weekly to pick up my produce—she responded, 'Well, that’s fine for you, but what about the rest of us?' It’s funny how perception works, because in my eyes, I am 'the rest of us.”

“We didn’t go from shopping weekly for everything we need at the grocery store to dealing directly with farms overnight. Think about it this way: every small step helps.”

“Our regular family dinners had one of the largest impacts on me and my attitude toward food, not just the social benefits of the family meal, but having food that was cooked at home, by my very busy mother.”

“One of the many downsides of our fast food culture is that food is no longer a revered cultural icon. This is probably one of the most detrimental aspects of our diet: the myriad of fast food restaurants are cultural icons and Sunday dinner with the family is not.”
J. Natalie Winch, Ditching the Drive-Thru

“I understand that many people do not see how they can accommodate homemade, nutritious, sit-down dinners every night, or even most nights. We live in a culture of busy. It’s certainly not a misperception that you are busy. You are. The question is, in this
time of increasingly innovative and amazing conveniences, why do we remain busier than any generation before us?”
