At one point of my childhood, I stopped eating meat. It was a phase and didn't last too long, and my Mother just dealt with it by giving me lots of veggies. (Sorry, Mom!) When she tells this story today, she remarks that it was good timing because my brother was going through a phase of not eating vegetables and everything evened out.…Continue

Throughout the entire month of October, Eamon had been "collecting" pumpkins and lining them up in sweet little spots throughout the house, occasionally trying to roll the largest one through the rest in an effort to reenact Linus and Lucy picking their carving pumpkin at the beginning of "The Great Pumpkin" Charlie Brown special. There were large ones, small ones, white ones,…

"... and a little child shall lead the way."
One day, the kids and I were running errands when we came to a stop light where a hungry and homeless man was standing and asking for change. Normally, I'd grab some coins to give, but didn't have anything in our usual spot. I started fumbling around to find more change when he decided to move on down the line of cars. Before I could catch…Continue

I was on the hunt this weekend for a spinach soup that was hearty but not creamy and not full of noodles or other grain. We have been trying to cut back on the grain intake again and I had already had my share of creamy soups during the week (lots of pumpkin and creamy potato leek). Plus, we had purchased a big bag of spinach at the market last Sunday and it…
When was the last time you had a nice piece of cake? Was it at a celebration? Or maybe it was after a nice dinner out with family or friends? Whatever the event, you probably remember it really well, because it turns out that eating sweets is linked to episodic memories.…Continue

ABC's hit television series "Once Upon a Time" is returning tonight! Tell me in the comments who is ready for Season 5. My biggest excitement this season is Emma Swan and her new role as "The Dark One". Will she be able to fight the forces of evil that have always seemed to reside in her? I'm sure we will soon find out just how bad Emma can (or cannot) be.
To celebrate tonight's season five premiere, I have created a "Once Upon a Time"…Continue
The weather is changing, our routines are changing, and soon it will be fall. Back to school and falling leaves may make it feel like fall is here, but these days nothing makes me think fall like pumpkin spice everything!
Yes, lots and lots of pumpkin used in things you would expect (coffee…Continue

Salt not only flavors our food but is also a chemical preserver, which means a chemical substance. In fact, any chemical substances inside a human body should be treated very carefully. Each element has its strict norms of being contained in the organism, and any excessive substance inevitably leads to disorders.
Salt is sodium chloride. The quantities of sodium required by the body are very scarce. And since this element actively participates in muscle activity and…Continue

Have them cook with you :-)
If you make it fun to participate in making the meals, they will look at the food differently... AND as a bonus, they might LIKE cooking and keep on helping :-) I have an 11 year old and he LOVES to cook.…Continue
Mommy,” she moves toward me. Her gaze is locked, voice shaky. “My throat feels funny."
“Funny, like a scratchy tickle or funny like you can't swallow?"
“Just really funny,” Veronica shrugs her shoulder.
“Can you swallow?” I ask the important question.
She nods her head, “Yes.”
Shit, what did she eat? and I immediately act giving her a dose of…Continue
We all know one simple truth: no pains, no gains. If you want to look well you must do something for it. Of course, there are many people, who are lucky. They can eat whatever they like and look faultless. We think of genetics, body metabolism…other vice, they have no overweight problem. Each person who wants to run off excess fat or just be in good looks must forget about all…Continue
