whole 30: thank heaven for little girls + ghee

June 8, 2015


Whole30 Cookbook

For 34 days, I went Whole 30. The whole 9 yards, no cheating, reading every single label of every bit of food I ate. Whole30? It’s the #1 Best Seller in Weight Loss Recipes on Amazon. The authors tell you not to begin with the “not’s” when explaining the “elimination eating plan” (lest you call […]

Red Ribbon Week

It’s Red Ribbon Week at school…”To encourage Smart Choices, Good Decisions, and Healthy Lifestyles.” I try. I mean I try.

September 5, 2012


That Dr. Oz, love him or hate the idea of him because of the apple juice arsenic kerfuffle, is making me want to do something. I feel like upgrading my cabin to first class, or even business class, by way of supplements. I sat there watching a show of his weeks back, reaching for a […]
