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

Just Flow

Oh yoga – how I had missed you… Today I am very grateful for Janel – a yogi, an inspiration, a new friend, and a teacher. I thank her for all the great classes so far. And the music. You know I always need music. It makes everything flow. Even if you skip the yoga… read more

Tri and Tri and Tri

Have you been telling yourself you are going to get back to the gym and that start date keeps getting postponed? A little extra “baby” weight you just can’t shake? A “handful” of lovin’ in your torso region that you can’t seem to part with? Any interest in showing your kids that Mommy and Daddy can… read more

Fresh herbs can transform a meal. A sprig of parsley makes a bowl of soup look regal. A few mint leaves make a cocktail more festive. And without fresh basil – tomato and mozzarella would be a lonely pair. While they are easily found in the produce section – I think growing them in your… read more

Be Prepared!

Splinters from a wood deck? We’ve got you covered. A mild case of eczema? Not a problem. Diarrhea? You are no match for us. We are parents. We are prepared. Usually… I know I have run to the medicine cabinet one too many times to find that we just don’t have the gear we need… read more

The Bottom Line

If this bottom line is the goal? This is the guy who is going to get us there. Nothing like a 6’6″ former NFL Defensive End to get you motivated… Patrick Kerney is in very good shape. He also spent years training with the best of the best. He knows how to help others make… read more

Five Friday Updates

THE GEL NAILS The gel manicure from this post – meh – could really take it or leave it. The issue is that I am a picker. Show me a pimple and I will show you how to pop it. A tangled necklace – I live to undo tricky knots. Same thing goes for chipping polish…… read more
