The Suppers Programs explained in 'Logical Miracles' by Dor Mullen

"Logical Miracles: 100 Stories of Hope and Healing," Dor Mullen. The story of the Suppers Programs

Logical Miracles is a collection of stories by people in The Suppers Programs who found their personal solutions by experimenting with whole food. In an environment of nonjudgment, we cook, taste, and feel our way to health, and we forge new friendships based on healthy living. For five years, pilot Suppers groups have been helping people with a range of food-related challenges find their path, especially people with depression, anxiety, learning issues, obesity, diabetes, and problems with alcohol. No special diets. No fees. No commercial messages. The only requirement for membership is the desire to lead a healthier life. Now we’d like to share our logical miracles, our road maps, our recipes, and especially our hard-earned wisdom related as stories of hope and healing. Welcome to Suppers."

Suppers Programs, "Message to Parents"

"There is very compelling research coming out of Columbia University showing that children who regularly eat dinner at the family table have much lower incidences of drug, alcohol, and tobacco use. The vast majority of teenagers surveyed said they want to eat dinner with their families. 59% of our children regularly do. Though it doesn’t always seem that way, our children and particularly teenagers want to spend time with us. If creating a family dinner table is beyond you, or if you need help re-establishing the habit, your therapeutic friends in the Suppers Programs can help you make this vital force for parenting a reality in your household. At Suppers we believe that doing whatever it takes to sit down regularly as a family to wholesome meals is the single most important thing a family can do."
