It’s Spring! What’s For Breakfast?

Breakfast food is so great that people put it in it’s own category. When you eat “breakfast food” at another time of day, it’s sort of a big deal. I always used to love going out for breakfast or brunch, when it was acceptable to eat foods from the “breakfast” category or the “lunch” category, …

Baby Steps Or A Giant Leap?

During my training to become a certified health coach, I was shown that most people can do really well with “baby steps” toward better health.

The White Stuff – A Great Sauce Recipe

In the winter, we go for warm and wonderful comfort foods like chili and cornbread, turtle brownies, and rice pudding with cinnamon and raisins. Popsicles and salad have lost their appeal when the thermometer reads 3 degrees Fahrenheit (as it does on my phone right now). When I’m trying to make comfort foods daily, I …
