Go nuts, Moms

If you haven't been paying attention, I love peanut butter. I cannot quite describe my love of peanut butter accurately, but let me just say that if I was positive my husband wouldn't look at me funny, I would eat it straight from the jar with a spoon in front of him. (I may or may not have done this outside of his eyesight; I'm not…

Why are Artificial Food Colors and Dyes Banned in Europe but NOT in the U.S.???

I'm a big advocate of eliminating artificial colors (aka food dyes) from our children's diet. Why? Well, it's because I have first hand experience with the negative effects on my two sons' behavior and attention span. It started when my oldest son was only two years old. I noticed how he would go from cooperative and having an active (i.e. busy but not atypical for a 2 year old child) behavior, to bizarrely defiant and hyperkinetic behavior for the next two or three…

Standing up for myself (so I don't die)

I am standing at the kitchen sink eating my cereal. All by myself. And I'm OK with that.

Most of us have seen last year's study about prolonged sitting being detrimental to our health. If you haven't read the study, and you don't want to click on that link, I'll…

I can't believe I'm writing a post about baby poop - but it may save lives

Poop.

Any parent who has survived potty training/toilet learning/whatever you want to call it deserves a medal, or at the very least, deserves to have that accomplishment listed on their resume. Parents who have survived potty training have acquired a bevy of skills which includes patience, high-stakes negotiation and grace under pressure. I believe that parents who have…

Are we stalking our children?

I was by a peaceful lagoon somewhere, having a glass of something multicolored and delicious with an umbrella in it. There was soft music playing and someone was approaching me to ask if I was ready for my massage, which I could have by the lagoon in a private cabana if I so desired.

Then I woke up to…

As a woman, I'm not really qualified to write about this

I'll be upfront about this - I am not qualified to write about circumcision. And it's because I am a woman. But I want to talk about it anyway.

The Center for Disease Control reports that the choice to circumcise boys is on the decline in the U.S. The…

Would you want your child's health records online?

It was six weeks after having my son. My C-section scar was recovering nicely, I had giant breasts from nursing and like all mothers of babies, I was incredibly sleep deprived. There I stood with seven pages of forms to fill out to enroll my son into school, and I had full-on mommy brain. I tried my best to answer their questions:

Weight? No idea. It…

Is your child a Nervous Nelly when it's time for a visit to the doctor?

Here are some helpful tips thanks to Mountainland Pediatrics:

  • Talk about doctor visits in a positive way. Read fun books to your child about doctor visits prior to your appointment.
  • If your child asks if the shot or procedure will hurt, don't fib about it; get down at your child's eye-level and explain that the shot may hurt a little for a few seconds.
  •  Allow your child some control regarding the appointment. Let them choose which toy they want to bring with…

Food, Calories and Metabolism

Understanding how your body will use the calories you consume can help you in setting up your nutritional program. Simply counting calories will not lead to body fat loss.

Not all foods are burned completely to produce energy. Some of them are only partially degraded to provide building blocks to support repair and growth. 

Generally speaking, the calories coming from protein are used to maintenance, repair and growth of new tissue and organs.

It's Not Rocket Science

Last week, I did a post about the child obesity epidemic in the United States.  In that post, the first point I wanted to make is that food is fuel.  When you realize that very fact, it becomes easier to make better choices.   It’s all about how you view yourself.

If you could buy yourself a brand new car and money was not an option, what kind of car would it be?  Visualize that car.  Imagine yourself in the driver’s seat.  Take in that “new car” smell – actually don’t…
