We at FoodieTown are so excited to add Breanna MacDonald as a contributor. Brea, or locally known as the hilarious foodie Instagrammer @Tablefortynine, has been creating delicious festive winter dishes, like the purple cabbage and bean stew, that double down on the nutrition, affordable ingredients and the flavour. We are so lucky to have her as our contributor allowing us to publish her recipes on our site. PS, we can’t wait for the Table49 cookbook! But until then find her Patron account for recipes and tales of Sex & Sandwiches. Until then, does anything say the holidays more than an eggnog recipe?!
Eggnog Latte Loaf, just missing the red cup☕️ The perfect snack to go with a hot cup of coffee on a cold day.
This is one of those things where the idea of nutrition really gets abstract, and we have to understand that there is no such thing as “good” or “bad” when it comes to nourishing our bodies. There is “real”, and less “real” food, there are things certainly that should be had in moderation, but the idea of applying such God-like dichotomy to food is just not good for the mind.
Why would we apply contexts that are used in ethics, morality, philosophy, and divinity to what we put in our mouths? Food is not something to be defeated, nor is it something to be won, and it is certainly not something Nietzsche needs to get his hands on. Food just IS. It is something that allows us to live, breathe, laugh, dance, sleep, be healthy and love.
We can make choices that nourish our bodies, our minds, and our intentions without polarizing our lives. We can support ourselves through the love of cooking and feeding others. We can be smart and have fun, we can learn to love real ingredients that have our backs both metaphorically and literally.
Just your gentle daily reminder that food is a love language, a nuanced sentence whispered between laughter and dotted with butter and flakey salt♥️

Food excites me, it always has. More than that, it excites me to share my love of food. It’s how I express love, it’s how I heal, it’s how I flirt; it is everything. And the cooking thing, I’ve been doing it with the help of mentors for over 10 years.
I don’t want to brag, but I know how to crab, prawn, pluck a chicken, and milk a cow. Brea is founder of tablefortynine.com, an Okanagan based caterer and makes wicked recipes that not only help you save money but are nutritious!
