This episode, Celine is talking to Anca Toderic and Christine Lacaciu, sisters-in-law and founders of the company Huckle & Goose a website plus built-in application that provides you with access to what’s in season, a carefully curated list of seasonal recipes and a neatly sorted list of groceries that supports your seasonal cooking as a way of life! Wow. Both women are mothers and committed to providing healthy and nourishing food for their family. Their dedication to this task is inspiring and along the way the topic of family meals, health-both mental and physiological-and parenting comes up.
