Have mealtimes become something you feel like you need to outsource just to manage your busy life?

Do you crave having family time, bonding over home cooked meals, but don’t know how to make that happen with your busy lifestyle? 

Inspired by two of her biggest passions - organization & food - the founder of Ellen C Lee Organizer brings you Food That Anchors, a collection of simple and delicious recipes that can be made in 60 minutes or less! Understanding the lifestyle of people on the go, Ellen shares practical steps on efficiency to save time and overcome the busyness that prevents many from cooking and eating well.

Food That Anchors will help you spend your time in the kitchen efficiently, so you can thrive in your on the go lifestyle  while still being anchored by good food and the relationships built around mealtimes.

From breakfast, to lunch, to dinner, this book teaches you how to execute meals through the lens of a professional organizer. The pro tips and 2-for-1 recipes will have you in and out of the kitchen in 60 minutes or less, so you have more time to spend with your loved ones (and yourself).
