We’re reading chapter 1 together of Jen Hatmaker’s book, 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess. It’s not too late to join us – pick up a copy from DaySpring for only $10 here. Here’s the whole book club schedule – jump on in with us! Now, on to the book and why Jen reduced her culinary habits to just seven foods for one experimental month:
Picking seven foods is like trying to pick my favorite kid. Some people eat to live, but I live to eat. I come from a long line of eaters; my sister is in culinary school in New York City as I write this. We long-distance foodie talk once a week until Brandon gives me the I just can’t take it anymore look. … Food is the ceintrifugal force that draws together my people.

Join us Friday as we all pool thoughts on what we’ve learned from exploring our kitchens and our cravings – and we’re not just talking food here. We’ll have a guest post from Hayley at the Tiny Twig about how this chapter impacted her and her family and we welcome you to link up your posts and/or comments on the topic as well.
