Information:

Join Karen Rose Tank and Dor Mullen of Princeton, NJ, as they share an exciting program that promotes optimal and sustainable health and healing.

Suppers is a Central New Jersey-based network of support groups serving people who must cook and eat well to be well. The Program started 11 years ago and now hosts about 40 events per month. Suppers is a peer-led, community-based program that runs in private homes and community kitchens. Our members cook with real, whole food, creating simple and delicious meals that help us live according to our intentions instead of our impulses. In this non-judgmental, supportive environment, people run personal experiments to discover the way of eating that works best for them. The discussion will include responsible practices and ethical eating.

Karen Rose Tank is a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach with Rose Health Coaching and The CogniDiet specializing in diabetes, weight loss, and blood sugar management. She helps people take control of their health by discovering what foods and lifestyles work for them and how to incorporate these into daily life… turning knowing into doing. Using her personal experience of 21 years of living with type 1 diabetes, Karen enthusiastically shares how she turned her lemons into lemonade (sugar-free). She is a firm believer in peer-based support, facilitating Stable Blood Sugar and Diabetes Success Suppers meetings as well as monthly groups for DiabetesSisters, the national organization for women living with diabetes.

Dor Mullen is the Founder of The Suppers Programs. She has a Master’s Degree in addictions counseling from The College of New Jersey and worked for 13 years in the garden-based education programs in the Princeton Public School District. In addition to teaching people how to prepare delicious meals from whole foods running about 7 Suppers meetings each week, Dor also hosts workshops on fermenting such foods as sauerkraut, kimchee, and kombucha and lectures nationally. Her book, Logical Miracles, presents the founding principles of The Suppers Programs along with over 100 compelling stories of participants and the recipes that supported their success.
