You know how Amazon offers those subscriptions for items it suspects you might need on an ongoing basis?  Well, Amazon helpfully suggested I subscribe to ketchup. Yep – ketchup. My middle child, M, eats a metric ton of it. Because she consumes so much of it, I buy only ketchup with really, really high quality […]

My kids were out of school on Halloween and the following day for Teacher Conferences.  It was fun to have that time together and also a blessing that we didn’t have to wake them for school on the day after trick-or-treating. The trouble is, even though the kids weren’t at school, we still had to […]

Long ago, I wrote about one of my family’s favorite dinner rituals – Salad Night.  Another of our absolute favorites is something we call “Feast.” D and I started this tradition many, many years ago now.  We would usually shop together and just wander around the market selecting quick, easy, fresh, seasonal, eat-with-your-hands kinds of […]

I left our mutual place of employment when my first child was born but thanks to social media, Sarah has remained in my […]

Explore More : March 1st

Whew!  It’s been a really insane few weeks in my world.  I was at a family wedding last weekend, so we didn’t get to Explore More.  Consequently, I’ve got a lot for you this week. But before I dive in, I want to welcome the new followers who joined us this week.  My posts about […]

On Tuesday, I shared the behavioral lessons I learned in fifteen days of logging my food intake.  Yesterday, I shared some of the nutritional lessons.  Today, I am going to dig deeper into vitamins which is the area where I got the biggest surprises. I Met 100% of the DRI for All Vitamins, With Two […]
