AND THEREFORE: I have figured out why my bum looks like tapioca.
I often wonder why I’m not as healthy as I’d like to be; and after some reflection, what I really end up wanting to know is: Why is pizza so demanding? Why does it have to be the center of attention ALL THE TIME?
An occasional foray Into the kitchen everyday Has led to many nightly dinners Of a meal made for winners.
Dear peanut butter jelly, just as night begins to fall,
The children start to call,
“Woe is me. I’m hungry!”
And now, my…
I always wondered, "is it true that you are what you eat?" Well, this may be good news for some of you and bad news for the rest, but yes, it is true. When we are talking about your skin and your face in particular, if you want a beautiful complexion and healthy skin, you need to include fruits and vegetables, protein, good fats and whole grains in your daily… Continue

As I have been learning more about GMO's or Genetically Modified Organisms, I have really felt compelled to share this information with all of you. Sadly, it is another scary topic, but one that I feel is really important if we are concerned with living our best life and taking care of our families!
Did you know since 1996 Americans have been eating… Continue

I'm throwing out an EAT CLEAN challenge for those who want to accept! It's pretty simple really, just check out the details and let me know if you want to participate. It's not a huge commitment - just one night a week!
I'm not a hard-core eat cleaner, I'd be in far better shape if I were, trust me! But I do want to hold myself accountable for what I eat and teach myself, again, what whole, clean foods…
Okay, I get it - I've read the newspaper, and my mom has described (in lurid detail) the more disgusting scenes in Food, Inc. Our eating habits are terrible and I want my family to be healthier. Unfortunately, I'm also coping with busy schedules, picky teens, and a bank account that doesn't allow me to indulge in…Continue

So here goes my blogging expedition, ill combine bad grammer with terrible typing, some raw and uncut video, some ranting and raving and alot of healthy questions.
I need an outlet so I may not get time to read as much as I expell my darker side into this internet funnel and allow my light side to relax and soak up the company or peace. So between a few updates and some ranting blogs i may not type much, I enjoy editing video more and leaving comments on things i wonder… Continue

Hey everyone! It has been wayyyy too long since I have posted anything.
I've had busy 2 weeks. Between a wedding, having family in town, and the 3rd cord for my laptop dying (That could be a whole other post!) I've
been slacking on my blogging duties. So here is an update on whats been going on.
Last week I discovered that the baby making Gods didn't have it in the stars for me to get pregnant this month. I am disappointed, to say the least. I really… Continue
Just a quick update, since I'm currently on throw-up watch. Unfortunately it's not mine. Bryson has a killer cough that has been making him ill all morning. So, not sure I'm knocked up, but I'm sure eating like it. Yesterday I made…

Why is it that kids will happily gorge themselves on ice cream, candy, or gooey-cheesy things but turn their little button noses up at salads, lentils or other nutritious-from-the-garden-foods? I know the scientific and biological reasons, as well as understanding that some parents are in a perpetual survival mode with their kids when it comes to their diets. But as a self-proclaimed foodie, I want to expose my little one to all the flavors the world has to offer. Bit by bit, of…
In today's difficult economic times, saving money has become a necessary way of life. Parents (and adults) are packing their lunch everyday to help reduce extra food expenses. For parents of multiples, packing lunches means also having to buy more supplies, which is costly. A creative and efficient way to transport lunches is using the Easylunchbox system.
The Easylunchbox system has been created by mother of three and actress Kelly Lester.…
I suddenly came to the realization that eating organic, market-fresh, good for me fruits and vegetables was going to be nearly impossible here in GiTMO and I am disappointed because this is, after all, a tropical island where things are supposed to grow abundantly year round. So yes, my expectations were a little on the high side. In the Dominican Republic, where I was born, we had just about… Continue

Cupcakes are yummy, right? Just thinking about them makes my mouth water. That sugary sweet cake-y goodness that seems to melt in your mouth.
Well, what would you say if I handed you a cupcake and told you it was made with breast milk. Would you eat it then?
Ok, I'm a mom. I tried the breastfeeding thing for a whole, oh, two weeks. Yeah, it didn't last long. Even though it didn't pan out for this momma, I still highly admire those who do nurse. And who do it for a long… Continue
