Healing Foods: Ginger Tea

Last year I fell hard for the Ginger Tea made at both Méli-Mélo and Aux Delices here in Greenwich. The day after New Year’s my baby boy and I got hit with a nasty head cold. Food tasted bland but I found myself craving that tea. I had a sense it would be the magic… read more

Superheroes Among Us: April Larken

When I started writing this blog almost 3 years ago it was with the intention to shine a light onto all the good and strong and brave that is happening around us. While I thought these stories would be a gift to my readers I never envisioned what a gift I was giving myself as… read more

Fitness: The Best Way to Get Healthy

This post is all about nutrition and wellness. It’s time. Three babies later I must admit that my body feels like it’s gone 5 rounds in the ring with a heavyweight boxer.

Move On: A Series on Wellness

No point in holding on to the past if the past ain’t working. I have always been one for reinvention. A lot of people say, “I’m not the exercise type.” Or “I just don’t have time to work out.” I myself am guilty of uttering both. But here’s the thing – we owe it to… read more

That Which Nourishes

Don’t we all crave good food? Food that nourishes the body, the mind, and the soul? Good food should have a pure history. We should be able to trace where it comes from and how it was grown. Do you know where your food comes from? Whose hands have plucked it from Earth? I want to… read more

Get your green on!

If I close my eyes and think about a place I wish existed – a place created to satisfy my every health food craving – I would envision a place called “Green & Tonic”. I would go there every day for fresh pressed juice. Lunch would be a green and gorgeous salad with nuts, quinoa,… read more
