Meet your mindfulness chef
Hello there! Pleased to virtually meet you. I am Heather Thomas, the Founder of The Mindful Kitchen. I grew up in the kind of Upstate, New York place where I passed farms where my food came from on my way to school. I realised after I moved off to Boston how childhood exposure to the land grounded me (pun intended) and made me understand my dependence on all forms of life, human or otherwise. I spent 20 years working in the arts and for youth charities, mainly across the pond in London. I embraced city life, but I also harboured a yearning to live closer to the natural world.
