Chicken and Collard Greens

Whew.  It’s been a rough few days with a trip out of town for a funeral. I stayed at my mom’s house, and over the course of 3-4 days, lots of comfort food was consumed.   Two days ago, attempting to eat a bit healthier and avoid fast food, we decided to go to the grocery […]

Paleo Party Resource

Holy guacamole!  Nourish Paleo put together an excellent list of paleo party foods.  50 different recipes!

NOT 7 minutes in heaven, but 7 minutes well spent…

I just happened across an item in the NY Times “Well” blog about a “scientific” 7-minute work out. I tried it with my workout buddy, and we both liked it.  While it took up very little time, my arms were sore for two days afterward.  It requires no equipment besides a chair. Maybe you’ll enjoy […]

Breakfast of Champions

I survived Sunday at the New Whole Foods Market…

I’ll not hide my love of Whole Foods Market… My husband works there, so we both shop there a lot.  Not only is it a wonderful place for him to work, but the stores are lovely, with all kinds of items you can’t find at conventional grocery stores.  I really appreciate the “conscious capitalism” business […]

In which I break up with alcohol…?

There is an adorable photo of me as a toddler, wearing a velour track suit (it was the 70’s, man) and I am swigging the dregs from somebody’s Budweiser bottle.  Apparently I loved the taste of beer as a tiny child. In high school in the 90’s the thing to drink were wine coolers (ick), […]
