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

I wanted to mention a few things I have changed in our home: I started to use raw honey, gluten-free products, and non-toxic, natural sunblock and deodorant.
After learning about the amazing properties of raw, local honey, that’s all I use now for my tea and when one of us has a soar throat. Honey has been proven to work just as well as cough medicine, so I always have it in the house.

The health benefits of incorporating Omega-3 fatty acids into our diet is nothing new. We have learned from other cultures that these fats are healthy. Some of these cultures such as the Inuit in Greenland eat as much as 40% of their diets in fat. However, these people have low rates of diabetes, heart disease and degenerative joint disease. The reason for this is their fatty diets are…Continue

I am a bit obsessive when it comes to feeding my kids. When I start looking at labels and realizing that EVERYTHING they eat has sugar, salt, and disgusting chemicals it just makes me crazy! Even so-called "healthy" foods like yogurt and granola bars are loaded with refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup. It makes me want to move to a cabin in the woods and feed the kids…Continue

I considered myself to be a pretty healthy eater until this past Tuesday when I attended a lecture called "Special Diets for Special Children." As if traveling and eating healthy wasn't hard enough, now I'm faced with traveling and supporting a special diet for my kids. Talk about pre-planning...

Every few months I get these cravings for sweets. I’m not a big-time sweets-eater. Not sure if it’s because my mom didn’t feed us many sugary foods while we were young or if I wasn’t wired to love desserty foods…but back to my point, every few months I can’t seem to finish a meal without salivating for a sweet bite afterward.
That’s been my life this past week.
Eat lunch. Hmmmm…any chocolate chips left in the freezer?
Eat dinner. Oooh, a bite of ice cream…
