The Evolving Kale & Chocolate Manifesto

Lately, my entries here on K&C have been a bit more personal. I must admit, I was shy at first. How can I expose my vulnerabilities? Why do they care about the lessons my dog has taught me about life?  Or will it resonate with my readers that I have a hard time not being […]

What Happens When You Learn to Let Go?

As most of you know by now, the pursuit of perfection was once the force that drove everything I did. I was an ardent t-crosser, an every-i-dotter, an if-everything-isn’t-exactly-how-it’s-supposed-to-be-I-can’t-sleep kind of person. I needed to be in control…of everything, including the things I couldn’t control.  Does this sound like you or someone you know? For […]

Life Lessons for Your Kids Start in The Kitchen

This past year, I have toured college campuses with my son, Noah, (more on him in a moment)…imagining him on his own navigating the four walls of university life without his parents to guide him (or bother him). I have had time to reflect and wonder how he will survive without someone doing his laundry. […]

When Perfect Is Not So Perfect

If you consider yourself A Control Freak, Type A, Classic Overachiever or Total Perfectionist, then this post is for you! I’ll admit it.  I picked this very topic of perfectionism to write about because it hits close to home. Let me explain. For years, I searched for the “perfect” diet, relying on books to dictate […]

Brain Food for Thought

I have the memory of an elephant. I used to remember every single phone number that I called before the days of speed dialing. Faces, places, names. No problem. But where did I put my keys or leave my Blackberry? And did I take my vitamins today? Does this happen to you? Do you oftentimes […]

Drawing the Line at Pink Slime

No one diet works for everyone. With our unique genetic makeup and individual taste, we cannot all thrive on the same thing. Yet, it seems like every day, there is a new super food or hot diet trend that does wonders for our collective overall health and well-being.  Sure, some people feel energized and wonderful […]

3 Ideas A Busy Person Can’t Live Without

I’ll come right out and say it: I love being busy! My clients do, too. Lately, one of the things I’ve noticed is that many of us get “swept away” with the excitement of a full and bustling life. You end up feeling threadbare, worn out, and at the mercy of your “to-do list.” You […]

Do You Ever Sit Down?

Is this how you eat: Standing over the sink? Hovering over the island in your kitchen? Picking bites off your kids’ plates? On your way out the door? Crumbs falling on your lap as you drive? Who has time to SIT for a meal? I am busy. You are busy. And what’s the difference if […]

Attack of the Snack Monster (And How to Win!)

Does this sound familiar?  You eat at noon. Then, you spend the rest of your hectic day at work or rushing from place to place.   By the time dinner rolls around, you’re nearly catatonic. Your blood sugar drops. Your clarity and ability to make basic decisions evaporates. You wander from cupboard to pantry to fridge […]

Super Bowl Sunday Snack Strategy

We have all suffered from the midday munchies at some point in our lives. The danger is that these hunger attacks often come on during the day when we need a clear mind, sound judgment and sharp focus. Usually when you are feeling a lack of ability to concentrate or suffer from that foggy brain […]
