I absolutely LOVE my local Whole Foods Store (if you can call an hour’s drive one way local). When you walk in the door, you are met with a HUGE produce section that looks alive. It’s almost like a giant piece of artwork. So many different colors, different textures, and different smells are just waiting for me…Continue

Mealtimes are as different across the country as, well, families. Each family approaches mealtime in a way that works for their particular situation. Some choose a buffet style option where family members fill their plates at the stovetop or counter and then sit down at the table. Others choose a family style option where serving bowls or plates are passed around the table, each family member taking a portion of his or her choosing. And then there are other families, typically with…Continue

I am a huge fan of The Biggest Loser TV show. To me, it’s not just about a group of people losing a large amount of weight and competing for a prize. It’s about so much more than that.
I am overjoyed that the group behind this show has finally decided to take on the matter of child obesity. It’s a sensitive subject and, so far, they have handled it beautifully.
Our children watch our every move. We are responsible for the food we bring into the home, how many times we allow…Continue

To all of you nostalgic saps who are mourning the potential death of the Twinkie, I offer the following quiz:
How many Twinkies have you actually consumed in the past month? (NOTE: You should not count this week when the world decided that Twinkies were edible again.)

My daughter had a friend sleep over the other night. I'm not a big fan of sleepovers, so we don't do them very often. But this girl is one of my favorites of S's friends. We'll call her Peggy. She's a nice girl, low maintenance, no drama. It's hard to find those qualities in a 10-year-old girl nowadays.
Peggy brought a large bag of leftover Halloween candy with her. We were going to the movies, so her mom let her bring the candy to take with us. She also proceeded to eat a…Continue

I stumbled across this recipe months ago. But it wasn't until a month ago that I finally made it. You see, when I come across a delicious looking recipe involving chocolate I can't help but read on. 'Tis my lot in life to be a *sigh* chocolate lover.
And this recipe is awesome. And I mean that in more than one way.
1. No sugar in it.
2. No dairy in it.
3. No wheat in it.
4. No cooking.
5. Absolutely awesome flavor, texture and it even presents…

Evidence indicates that foods high in protein and antioxidants (fruits and vegetables in particular) can have anti-aging effects. Eat lots of fresh vegetables and fruits, especially berries. Drink green tea. Begin juicing!

So my son has been a really picky eater lately. Well he was born picky. It is hard not to compare him to my daughter because she came out a great eater. She loves healthy food and even asks for cold water over…Continue

We all go through phases with our children's diets. (Heck, I go through phases in my own diet as my tastes change throughout the month. So what can I expect?) But kids are notorious for being "picky," "difficult" and "plain."
And truth be told, my kids have thus far been truly amazing little eaters. My first has very openly tasted foods most of her life, leaning towards a less-interested stage when she hit four years of age, but nonetheless, discovering for herself what she truly…

Today we rose to a sun that was trying it's darndest to burn through the mist that shrouds the redwoods. It'd peek through momentarily, lighting up the whole living room, and within minutes hide again beyond the mist.
Finally at ten o'clock the…

How ironic that I awoke to the beauty of snow - covered trees this very a.m. as today marks the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. What is even more odd is that on this very date, thirteen years ago, flakes fell from the sky on my wedding day in New York City. This is “snow joke.”
Dare I mention that bathing suit season is around the corner? This gives us harried moms three short months to…Continue
