A Matcha Green Tea Smoothie with A Transformational Twist {Recipe}

Lately, I‘ve been thinking about the power of rituals.  A ritual is different than a routine.  Routines can become, well, a little too routine—where you simply go through the motions as if you’re on autopilot. Rituals, on the other hand, are more like a pause in your day. They have intention and meaning behind them […]

When Chocolate Chip Cookies Are More Nourishing Than Kale

My kitchen is the place to be in our house. At a typical meal, there are several burners lit, cutting boards spread out across the counters, and the sound of veggies being sliced and diced. My younger son, Daniel, finds his way to the bar stool to sit and assume his role as the official […]

Not Walking My Talk

I have an embarrassing confession to make.  For the last few weeks…I’ve been a total hypocrite. It’s true. With the most recent wave of busy-ness, I stopped practicing what I preach.

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 […]

The New Way to Weigh Yourself

It was a perfect day.  The clear blue sky, low humidity and cool breeze were so inviting as I set out to take a well-deserved break and enjoy an 8-mile run. I was running downhill pumping my legs and glanced at my trusty GPS.  What?  7:21 (minute miles). Feeling inspired by my almost record breaking […]

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

I feel like wishing you all a Happy New Year.  I know that seems ridiculous since we are three quarters of the way through 2012.  But to me, this time of year feels like new beginnings more than the actual new year.  Perhaps it’s the change of season, the back to school frenzy, or the […]
