I need a really big bottle of wine.

Wow, I’m a hot mess. I had my second child. Turns out having two kids is like 10x the work and laundry and dirt and noise. To anyone who has a toddler and a newborn, I salute you! You deserve a big bottle of wine (or maybe something even stronger). I can honestly say that…

My Kid Is Missing Out

How many times have I heard the phrase, ‘Your kid is missing out’ in my two and half years as a parent? At least a billion, maybe more! I get it from friends, family, strangers, acquaintances, and especially from other moms. I hear it everyday! I am here to tell you that, yes, my kid…

Feeding a toddler is by far one of the hardest parts of raising them. Each meal time ends in a big mess. Half the food on the floor, Some on their shirts, some on their seat, and maybe a little in there tummy. They like mac n’ cheese, cookies, crackers, and pretty much anything else…

Our food industry sucksĀ 

90% is a big number. So why is our food industry not changing? Why are we still feeding/creating childhood obesity? Why are still battling fatigue and cancer? Diabetes and arthritis?  It amazes me that we are controlled by an industry that is slowly making us sick and no one bats an eye. We are customers…

Steps to a Healthier Family #3

This one is simple: Never Give up. There are going to be days when dinner is not a balanced meal, when breakfast is leftover dinner, and when coffee is the only thing getting you through it. Don’t sweat it. I find that I have a few things that always get done (healthy snacks, water bottles,…
