I’d seen her face before. Many times, actually. In fact, every time I saw her advertisement, I would tear it out, tuck it away, and vow that one day I would call her. But there I was, staring at her face – which looked markedly different from the one in her ad, by the way. […]

Let’s start out with some of the realities about health and wellness journalism.  And for that, I point you to Katy Bowman’s Expert Ankles piece.  Now, from time to time, I have been known to remind my class members that just because they see a picture of a movement in a health or fitness mag, […]

We recently had a birthday girl in the house.  My middle child, M, turned five and she requested a dolphin-themed pool party.  She’s my highly gluten intolerant girl and our guest list included our vegan friends and a mom with Celiac.  I feel so blessed that the folks at Dulce Vegan here in Atlanta can […]

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned a mom blogger who spoke about her son’s drug addiction.  Acknowledging that you don’t get a “parenting do-over,” she shared some reflections that she hoped would help other mothers help their children.

In this post, I introduced you to my struggle with acne that started in my preteens and has persisted through my adult life.  Next, I shared the link that I discovered between my acne and the consumption of dairy products.  Today, I am going to offer “the rest of the story.”  At least until my […]

Acne, Dairy & Me

Last week, I shared the beginning of my acne journey.  Today, I share the next major stepping stone in my quest for clear skin: discovering the link between dairy and my acne. As an adult, my acne has been pretty consistent – always one to ten cystic lesions along with some minor blackheads and whiteheads. […]

Acne. Ugh.
