Talking to wheat – an Italian weekend with Dr. Uri Mayer-Chissick

Getting to know the people, the food, the crafts and the culture

solo-disegnoIt is all about us, our bodies and our health.

(And of course our community, environment and nature)

Don’t you think we should have a good experience with every single crumble we put in our mouth?

Don’t you think we could live in symbiosis with nature, to see it prosper while we prosper too?

Don’t you think we could find answers in our history to live a better present?

Don’t you think it’s time to start listening to our bodies and to see our eating habits with different eyes?


It’s not so difficult. And it’s time to start!
