Excellent Eating Habits Spread

On This Day

Fannie Farmer suffered a stroke at age sixteen. Unable to walk, she took up cooking, giving her mother’s boarding house a reputation for amazing meals. Publishing cookbooks and opening a cooking school, her story reminds us that our greatest tragedies often define who we are.

The Fannie Farmer Cookbook, a gastronomic classic, was published this day in 1896. Its emphasis on good foods, fresh flavor, and variety is why it remains a favorite to this day.

Summation of Spread

The Three of Pentacles depicts three figures in discussion about the building of a sacred space. Often representing collaboration, you can also understand this card as growing in healthy ways and the sacred space being your body.

The consumption and preparation of food is a connection to the life force itself—an opportunity to indulge in pleasure and health simultaneously. If you plan to change eating habits, emphasize the positive rather than dwell on the negative. This spread focuses on cultivating excellent eating habits.
