Can’t Go Back

Thank you, Mr. Trump. I know right? If you’ve been following me on social media you’ve seen a side of me that has never before emerged in my writing. For the first time ever I brought politics into my “social” sphere. I remember the first day I spoke up in someone’s Facebook thread knowing my […]

Anatomy of a Meatball

My food life has been a little challenging of late. I mentioned my perfect storm a couple weeks ago and all that I was learning about radical self care in the process of healing. Yes, me – the self care queen – still learning. My radical self care journey began in earnest the day I […]

The Perfect Storm

I wanted this to be one of those cases where you walk into the doctor’s office after doing “the work” (meaning all your nutritional and holistic protocols) and she says, “Wow, I don’t know what you’re doing to heal but whatever it is, keep up the good work. Your blood work looks amazing!” It wasn’t. […]

Many Mothers

“Hey, I thought about you yesterday. You like recipes don’t you?” “I do!” “Well, I’ve got one for you. Noni Puffs. (Like Sfinge.) Here, write it down. You got a pencil?” I feel myself grinning as I listen to this voice from my past. Aunt Dee. My mother’s brother’s wife, one of the many women […]

Never Leave Me to My Own Devices

image source: flydenver.com Arriving the recommended two hours prior to departure always seems like such a virtuous accomplishment. I enter the TSA PreCheck lane eager to get through security so that I can grab one last bite of Colorado cuisine before boarding my plane. Maybe even a bison burger. I’ve never eaten a bison burger […]

How Do You Stay So Thin?

How do you stay so thin? The question was innocent enough. I had been posting my food forays from France all week and believe me, when I travel to France, it’s no holds barred. It’s the one place I can enjoy a loaf of crusty glutenFUL bread and not worry that someone is going to […]
