When an Idea Falls Out of the Sky and Makes You Feel Like You’re “Home.”

November 9, 2011

I’ve been thinking about the topic of this post for a few days, and mulling over how to approach it—how much do I want to reveal about my personal life, and how do I present this so that you will be interested? I’ll give you the backstory. If you’ve been reading for at least 2 [...]

New is New…and Old can be New too.

August 25, 2011

I used to know this old Ukranian lady who moved to Rochester from Elmira after her husband died…her “new” house was built in the ’90s, and she just kept saying over and over, “I always say, New is New.” I think of that now when things change for me. I’ve always been dead set against [...]

Since I’ve been gone…I’ve gotten healthier!

August 15, 2011

I’ve missed you. But. I’ve been having a mental block about the blog–I have some big changes going on in my life (personal and professional), and my inner brat stomped her foot and said she wasn’t going to do anything until everything new was ready at the same time. I gave up on that desire. [...]

Evidence. Proof. Why Wouldn’t You Try This?

May 5, 2010

Petra’s sister introduced her 2 year-old son to green smoothies recently, and as a result, we have another kid-green-smoothie success story! How cool—another toddler ingesting more greens in the morning than many grown adults have throughout an entire day! Occasionally, I wonder what the point is of my job—it begins to feel a little fruitless [...]

Food Revolution?!

April 2, 2010

We just watched the first two episodes of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution (yes, that’s what we’re doing on Friday night…and a few weeks ago we watched Food, Inc. … So, what’s wrong with that?!). This little Internet TV binge came after an hour of reading some of The China Study. Would you believe me if [...]

Why is health so confusing? Is coffee healthy?  Are eggs?  How about the debate between high-carb and high-fat diets? If you ever turn on the TV or indulge in any kind of popular media (or even many research reports), you’ve probably been confused at some point about what is healthy.  I have been too. I’ve [...]
