It's hard to believe that exactly one year ago today I was driving my son Jackson to day care and I looked in the rear view mirror at him and he had turned blue. It was a terrifying moment in my life. You can read about this experience from my... Continue reading

It can be hard to continue healthy habits while traveling, especially if you want to feel like you are on vacation. We do try to stick to some things that help us maintain some semblance of a healthy life while still having fun. Continue reading

I'm very excited to offer two readers the chance to try this delicious granola. It's being sold in stores in California but otherwise only available through their website. While you might not think there's much of a difference between granolas, as Brian stated, "Once you try it, you get it." It's true. Continue reading

As if the aisles of grocery stores weren't confusing enough, there's a new trend on the shelf: coconut oil. Coconut products seem to be getting more attention than coconuts themselves. It seems to be one of the most asked questions I get these days. I’ve been curious myself about the... Continue reading

Hello! I'm sorry more than a whole week has passed since I've posted. Last week I took my re-certification exam in sports dietetics and I have been studying like a mad woman to prepare. It's over now and I won't know the results for several weeks, but my brain power... Continue reading

This month our Recipe Redux challenge was to create a healthy drink. While I'd say creative drink concoctions are not my forte (unless we are talking smoothies and in that case I consider myself the Smoothe Mad Scientist), I have come up with a thing or two in my day... Continue reading

Yesterday, I shared some strategies for starting your baby on solid foods. If you haven't read it, I suggest you start there before reading this post. Today, I want to talk about tools for easy prep and feeding. The Blender There are a lot of machines out there for specifically... Continue reading

There's a lot of theories out there on how to start your baby on solids and what those solids should be. Let me tell you (if you didn't know already), everyone is passionate about their own way of doing it. They should be! It's your precious little one, and you... Continue reading

I'm super excited to introduce Noor Ashouri, one of my students who is working with me on FFP this semester. She is awesome in many ways, but particularly is very interested, and talented, in health writing. Here is her first piece. Be on the lookout for more great content in... Continue reading

Lately, I've been doing a lot of research on detox diets, trying to get to the bottom of what it's all about. I'll share more about that later, but what I do keep running in to is Brussels sprouts and how amazing they are for our bodies. All the cruciferous... Continue reading

The salad course... Not exactly the part of the meal that gets most people really excited. I'll be honest - I rarely order a salad as an entree at restaurants because most of the time they're boring with stupid lettuce, stupid toppings, and stupid dressing. I just don't think they...

Today I am re-posting from my old FFP site (circa January 2012) based on a question I had on Instagram last month about turmeric. I've been including a teaspoon of this spice in my daily smoothie for a couple of years based on its anti-inflammatory properties (and the fact that... Continue reading

I love this quote! It's so profound to me after the year we have been through. Reflection is a very important part of growth. Without looking back at what has happened and how it has affected you, you don't grow. You just simply move forward blindly. But the problem remains... Continue reading

I am always dazzled by New Year's Eve. Every year I hope to get invited to some magical party where my hubby and I dance the night away and ring in the new year together. This particular scenario has not happened in 10 years of being together, but I'm hoping... Continue reading

In my former life (i.e. pre-kids) I worked for Williams-Sonoma during the holidays and loved it! My favorite experience was when a desperate shopper came in and requested help finding that perfect gift or stocking stuffer for the cook in their life. I just love helping people pick out gifts!...
