Last week, my daughter and I were given the opportunity to try a new kids drink called KIDStrong. KIDStrong boasts 100% all natural ingredients, 22 vitamins and minerals, and a low sugar content, which immediately sparked my interest since I, like

I blame the carrots

FACT: Tapioca is delicious.



FACT: You are what you eat.



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?

Government Refuses To Follow FDA's Suggestion To Cut Back On Salt

What child doesn’t love to eat a bag of popcorn, licking the excess salt off of each finger? Many of the foods we love contain large amounts of sodium. Foods with lower levels of sodium often taste bland. But are we once again sabotaging our health for taste? (Yes!) And should the government help save the public’s health by mandating decreased levels of salt in the foods American’s consume? (Yes!)



According to a new statement from the Food and Drug Administration, Americans are… Continue

Is Your Child Getting Enough Calcium?



While attending a family gathering this past summer I noticed that the only beverages available for the children were juice boxes and soda. Kids were drinking these

like water. Recently I took a look in my own refrigerator and saw the

gallon of milk still sitting on the shelf only half empty. I…

Disclaimer! Warning this Mom is certifiably insane.

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…

Devastating News

I just received some devastating news. My son informed me he is not going trick-or-treating this year! It was bad enough when my daughter stopped.



I’m having déjà vu. This reminds me of how I felt when my daughter was 2-1/2 years old and I learned that naptimes didn’t last forever. Ridiculously, it had never occurred to me that my child would actually grow older and not require that down time any more—regardless of the fact that mommy still… Continue

Who is this insane woman?

This is not a fairytale. This is how I finally figured out how to get my extra baby weight off, get toned up, get organized, and clean my house, in the most “fantabulously” insane way.



My friends have been dying for me to share my plan… so here it is…and for those of you who don’t know me YET… here is a little about me.



I am a stay-at-home/go-to-work mommy to Sophie (6) and Jack (2). Just like you, I carpool. I homework. I run a hundred errands a day. I cook. I clean. And,… Continue

Make Time for YOU!



This is the number one issue that I hear from moms in particular. You might think that you don't have time to workout and eat property, but you CAN find the time. Frankly, you MUST find the time for yourself! If you are not healthy and fit, your family can't count on you. Your work productivity will decrease, and you won't feel good about… Continue

Snikiddy Snacks Review and Giveaway!

My little guy pretty much lives on snacks these days. I don't like it, but I guess that's the diet of a toddler? So naturally I've been on the look out for at least healthier snacks that he'll eat. I first saw Snikiddy snacks at Babies R Us one time while shopping and I popped open the bag for Easy right there in the store. (I do this often now. hehe) He loved them. So when I had the opportunity to review Snikiddy snacks and realized they had more options to choose from I was… Continue

Is Caffeine Safe For Children?

Children today drink twice as much soda as they did 20 years ago, averaging as much as 20 ounces a day! A large soda not only provides tons of calories and sugar but it also includes at least 100 mg of caffeine. Many parents wouldn’t dream of giving their kids a cup of coffee yet routinely offer them soda, which contains caffeine as well. We also see many families hitting the local café or Starbucks for a café latte or mocha frappuccino loaded with the burst of ‘energy’ we call… Continue

Wateroos GIVEAWAY!!! 2- 6 packs, lunch cooler, and 2 hard cases!

Like many parents I'm always trying to avoid the amount of sugar my toddler gets. This includes juice filled with sugar. With how busy we are and constantly on the go, I'm finding it easy to throw juice boxes in the diaper bag. "Easy" loves them and they're so much easier. So when I found Wateroos I was stoked! It makes both baby and mommy happy! He gets his juice box and I get less sugar. Yeah! "Wateroos are fruit-flavored waters to be as delicious as possible without sugar or artificial… Continue

High Fructose Corn Syrup: The Real Truth!

It seems that everybody is talking about the evils of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). But what is fact and what is simply hearsay? Here we will give all the facts about HFCS.

You Can’t Judge A Food By Its Package Cover! Sunmaid Yogurt Raisins vs. Raisinets

Advertisers work hard to earn their money. They can take any food and make it sound nutritious. Very few laws protect the consumer from advertisers’ half-truths.

Easy… just look at the nutrition label and the ingredient list! The nutrition label and the ingredient list have all the information that you need to determine whether a food is… Continue

A non-negotiable ritual

We talked some time ago about the physical health benefits resulting from daily tea drinking. Regular doses of antioxidants, as well as increased hydration and alertness, are just a few of those benefits. But tea has an experiential component that benefits mental health as well. A few moments taken to sit, sip and contemplate will give your poor, overcrowded brain a rest!



Easier said than done, right? Well, here’s an idea from our fellow Chai Babies out there. Claim one ritual for… Continue
