#58 – Ancestral Cooking for Schools & Retreats with Hilary Boynton

Hilary Boynton is the creator of the School of Lunch, a week long academy held a few times a year that teaches attendees from around the world how to put together incredible nourishing ancestral traditional food programs that they can use in whatever application they need – in running a school lunch program which is what Hilary does in California, in a business, for retreats or wellness spaces, at home or wherever they wish to implement a meal program. In this episode I got to sit down with Hilary and ask her to give me a peek into what happens at their academy. Listeners will be fascinated to hear the different topics she chooses to cover in her training, why she chose to cover them in her academy and who is on her rotating list of guest speakers. Hilary’s optimism and hope, her strong positive energy and her belief in the power of good food to heal our bodies comes through strongly in this episode. I am in awe of the possibilities and power of taking her food program into schools, homes and businesses around the world.
