I’ve had requests over the years for cool stuff with my logo on it. I decided to title the logo and gear “Feeding is Love,” after a line from my book…
“You may hear “food is love,” but when you think about it, feeding is love. Food is sustenance, feeding is nurturing. A scrambled egg on a plate is delicious and fulfills nutritional needs, but scrambled eggs shared over a smile and a chat about weekend plans brings you together.”
Check out my Cafe Press site with mugs, hats, and more. If there is anything else you might like, just let me know. If you love the logo, like I do, now you can show that love! It’s a great conversation starter to tell your friends and colleagues that food is not the enemy. (And no pressure for me to sell any inventory!)
