I love our kitchen. I mean, I REALLY love our kitchen. When it flooded many years ago and we found out the homeowners insurance was going to pay us a big enough chunk to actually replace the kitchen cabinets, Bob and I put our heads together and planned, planned and planned[...]

Nutritarian Fast Food 1 - Smoothie Super Green Freezer Box Mix

This is the first in a series of posts that will include healthy make-ahead "Nutritarian Fast Food" recipes that I have developed to make my life a little simpler and our health and nutrition goals a little more realistic. A few years ago, during another attempt to lose weight and gain[...]
Eat a Rainbow!

Eat a Rainbow!

I've heard the term "Eat a Rainbow" and always loved that idea. This food is pretty much the way God intended, I believe. As "low on the food chain" as we can practically get. Being that we don't live on a farm, we have to put a bit of (underserved) faith in the[...]

With all the various sources of well-intentioned advice, I experience a lot of anxiety about what is the "appropriate" response when she is disrespectful, argumentative, interruptive or when she hits me[...]
A rose is a rose...

A rose is a rose...

A rose is a rose... and I think it is a symbol of all the things we should stop and appreciate. You know..."Stop and smell the roses" and all that stuff. For me it's "stop and photograph the roses"...I did this on the way out to hustling my daughter to[...]
Feeding Children and preventing Eating Disorders

Feeding Children and preventing Eating Disorders
