2013- The Food Movement in Review

Overall, I think that 2013 was a good year for those of us in the “food movement”. People are becoming more educated, and are starting to make healthier choices for their families. There have also been some major setbacks, but that is to be expected. Change doesn’t happen overnight, or in a week, a month,


Child Care

I was reading an article the other day about the cost of child care, and while I remember it being expensive, I didn’t realize just how expensive.

Blackberry Chia Seed Smoothie

Tuesday’s Trials

I think that we all have things that we struggle with as parents. None of us are perfect, and for the most part we do a better job than we think we do. That’s a good thing, because it means that we continue to strive to be better. One of the things that I struggle
