Longtime readers of this blog know nothing about me if they don’t know this one thing: I love chocolate. Not just any chocolate. I love very dark, high quality chocolate. And I eat it. Every. Single. Day. Since soy and dairy cause me some trouble, I have to be picky with my chocolates. And, since […]

If you’ve paid attention to my Facebook feed over the past few days, you’ve seen posts about Jordan Younger, Chocolate-Covered Katie, and Amy Kubal, R.D. What do they share in common? Jordan’s abandoning veganism because of her anorexia. Katie’s “come out” as an excessive exerciser. And Amy’s shared that her lifelong struggle with disordered eating […]

Explore More : April 18th

I know it’s been a few weeks since I’ve gotten an Explore More out there. Apologies, but I tried to minimize my exposure to screens while on Spring Break with the kiddos. Consequently, I have lots of stuff for you this week, so let’s dive on in. Before we head into the content, though, I […]

So, this alignment-obsessed Paleo-eating mom of three goes to the market after teaching a class on Sunday.  She stocks up for the week.

Remember how I told you it was seldom that my two big kids agreed on a dish? It happened this week. The two bigs asked for seconds, thirds and fourths, and Baby A noshed happily away. So, of course, I have to share it with you. It is a decidedly summer dish.  (Don’t even think […]

Yesterday I posted a piece on my son’s recent birthday party and showcased some of the real foods we served.  One of the reasons I wrote that post was that he and I recently attended an amazing party at a friend’s house.  These friends are vegan, and seeing the delicious food that they prepared and the […]

Fall Harvest Sauce

I have a lovely vegan friend who reads my blog every day and has been incredibly supportive, despite the fact that my recipes are chock full of eggs and meat.  Today’s recipe has neither.  So D, this one’s for you! This is a simple fruit sauce that I made with my kids.  My daughter, M, […]

When I first wrote this post, it was twice as long as the post I eventually published.  After I scheduled the post to run and went to bed, I had second thoughts about all I had said, so I scrambled downstairs, deleted, edited and rescheduled the new post. I am still trying to figure out […]
