One of the questions I get from my Mamavation moms is, “Can I still eat potatoes?”. Somewhere along the way, most of you have probably been told potatoes are a “bad” food and you should stay away from them. I’m here to tell you they’re not as bad as you think. In fact, when you […]
I’m headed up to the mountains today for a women’s getaway. I can’t wait for the cool breezes and an excuse to put on my boots and a sweatshirt. I’m also looking forward to a little “unplugged” time. Things have been so busy behind the scenes (read: real life) that I haven’t had as much […]
This week I’m simply thankful for those who inspire me to live a better story, to get off the couch and do something, to press on towards something better. I think we all have something inside us that longs for adventure and romance, something epic we can be a part of. Then routine settles in, […]
This week I was lucky enough to spend a few days in Fresno with the California Raisins. While I have loads to tell you about this incredible fruit and the people who grow it, first I wanted to give you a glimpse of Yosemite from our quick tour today. We weren’t there long, but we […]

This month’s Ecocentric Mom box was packed with goodies! I am loving the natural makeup and skin care samples, and Larabars are my favorite. I’m going to take them with me when I fly to Fresno tomorrow for the California Raisins Harvest Tour. One of the new flavors is Chocolate Coffee. Chocolate + Coffee? Yes […]
When I saw the topic for this month’s Recipe Redux challenge, I had absolutely no idea where to start. I have no experience making “Fermented Foods” at home, and didn’t even know it was possible. When I started looking into the process, the food safety nerd came out in me as I worried about leaving […]

I don’t know about you, but I feel so busy during the week that time just flies by. I get so busy that my mind never stops going, even when I’m trying to sleep. It’s usually around Wednesday or Thursday that I start to feel that familiar stress and anxiety start to creep in. This […]
