In case you didn’t see the Facebook post yesterday, Sweet Baby Olive lost her battle with AML – acute myeloid leukemia – yesterday. Olive’s mom wrote a beautiful blog post on breastfeeding Olive through her diagnosis. Maggie’s and Olive’s story touched my heart and my heart is heavy today with the news of her passing. Incidentally, […]

Hey, you. The one ragging on women for wearing yoga pants when they can’t possibly be going to the gym? Can you just drop it already? I mean, do you take to social media to disparage surgeons for wearing scrubs? Or soldiers for wearing camo? Of course not, because the clothes that they wear to do […]

I haven’ been feeling particularly bloggy this week. Hopefully I will get some of my blog mojo back over the weekend and serve up more for you next week than I did this week. But I have some good stuff for you today, so I wanted to take a few minutes to explore more. Before […]

(Apologies, of course, if you are a professional model or a professional athlete.  If you are, you can stop reading here.) I have two things I want you guys to read and think about today.  The first is pulled from a transcript of The Paleo Solution Podcast, number 167.  A listener asked Robb Wolf and […]

Earlier this week, I posted a link to this article on my personal and blog Facebook feeds.  On my personal Facebook page, I said something about how it makes me want to cry when my friends talk about going on a diet. Turns out, that was a provocative statement.  The piece itself is provocative, I […]

This is going to be a quickie … it’s Election Night in the US of A and I have a hot date with my hubby to watch returns together. We got persimmons in our CSA box last week.  I didn’t know how to eat them, but found this how-to and the kids and I noshed on […]
