There are a couple of nutritional rules that everyone in my life has learned to love:
- I eat clean about 80 percent of the time. I know this will yield me 100 percent results.
- I don’t believe in moderation. When I go off the rails with my diet, I do it in clusters. Having a little of this or a little of that on a regular basis is not effective for me on any level. I go until the wheels fall off, and then I get back on.
- If you complain to me about just about anything regarding your overall health and wellbeing — or you have lifestyle questions in general — I’m going to start talking bone broth.
Every April 22, my kids come home from school with their artwork of Earth pictures, paintings and props tucked into their backpacks. This Tuesday we celebrate yet another round of Earth Day. Beyond creative art, folks can get creative in the kitchen, too, to honor Earth Day. Here, I present a recipe for Southwestern-style salmon that is absolutely delicious — and keeps our good ol’ planet Earth in mind.
Sustainable Eating Defined: When you hear the word sustainable, does a hint of tofu hipster come to mind? For many, that's exactly what happens. But truly, a sustainable diet/lifestyle is simply a responsible way of eating that circles back to providing you with better health.
Easter is a time for some family love, and the joy of watching kiddos excitedly explore spring in their brightly colored clothing with Easter basket in-hand!
So, what’s in your basket?
I don’t want to be a buzz kill. Nor am I a candy prude or crusher of little kids’ dreams. I believe there is a certain right of passage for kids, and they should enjoy sweets and treats on such occasions as Easter.
But I am also a mother, and, like many moms, I care about my kids’ nutrition. I also know that choosing healthier candy doesn't mean doing without. It means swapping out.
