Is Your Toddler Getting Enough Nutrition?

Little picky eaters can leave you wondering if they are getting all of the nutrients they need to grow and thrive. Most small children will have opinions about the food you serve.

I Cannot Believe Seltzer is Bad for Us

When I was growing up, there were 2L bottles of Pepsi in the house every payday, so every two weeks we binged and splurged on bad stuff. There were also Doritos while they lasted. We would consume all this junk while watching Little House on the Prairie reruns at 5pm on channel 11 — which […]

So is the Rumor True? Is Guinness…Good for You?

Were you over served on St. Patrick’s Day? No shame in that, we only get a Saturday celebration about once every seven years (I never know how to factor leap years into that equation.) For me, one of the most difficult realities to face when I hit forty was the two day hangover. Perhaps today […]

Why People Are Choosing Farro Over Quinoa

If you like all that Quinoa can do for your body, you’ll love farro. Farro is a little softer and closer in texture to rice making it an easier transition to a superfood in case you (or your kids) find quinoa to be a little too nutty.  But if you are limited to a gluten-free diet farro is not […]
