A Feast of Life: Living Humbly and Full of Vegetables

by Kate Singh

2024, 83 pages


Along with giving us a peek into her simple and abundant life, Kate is refreshingly honest and down-to-earth.  Her humor shines through the pages.  This book takes the reader on a journey of self-discovery to find that such a life is possible.  It is a family of four that lives richly yet lives frugally and how they accomplished it all in today's world where costs are continually rising.  Perhaps most important is her way of giving her family healthy meals by focusing on a plant-based meal plan and making many foods by scratch cooking.  The author states, "We planted gardens and an orchard not because we think there will be such hard times ahead but because planting and growing our food ensures 100% organic and saves thousands of dollars in fresh produce.  We also reduce our carbon footprint by not having to buy food that has traveled.  It travelled a few yards from the garden to the kitchen."


And don't think the frugal aspect is the main focus.  No, it is how one can live frugal yet feel rich.  Rich in experiences, rich in comforting and healthy food, rich in entertainment from the library and nature surrounding you and rich in the fact that you don't have to worry about bills because you have learned to live within your means.  It is a book about changing your life by changing your mind-set.  She adds, "I put a lot of fun and love into this book, and I hope it ignites a spark in you to be free and happy and create your sanctuary.  Don't be a slave to what we are supposed to do, be, have. Find what you want to fill your soul up.  It's probably in the forest."
