My sister and I were talking about something that similarly upsets both of us: guns. And after agreeing we were equally annoyed, my sister then decided to turn our chat to a less controversial topic: spiralizers. That is when I realized I have controversial opinions about spiralizers. I just bought a spiralizer a few weeks … More i’m sorry to disappoint you
Next week Arlo turns one. In two weeks we’ll be celebrating with a birthday party and cake. I started out a little stressed about the party itself, spent some time worrying what presents to get a child who doesn’t know what a present is, had fleeting thoughts of if he’d be walking when he’s one… … More my biggest anxiety with arlo turning 1
I really envy all my skinny vegan friends for somehow being skinny by just eating vegan. But to be completely honest, I’m not sure I can even give up pork, which seems like the first step most meat-eaters take into vegetarian land. And I am definitely not delusional enough to think I could ever give … More omnivore mom + herbivore baby
Tomorrow marks the final day of our self-inflicted family sugar fast. The question I got the most: Why are you doing this? The next question: The boys are doing it to? And third: Do you think they sneak and eat sugar at school? So for any of you still wondering these things, here you go… … More is it possible to be 100% sugar-free?

I had this great goal for Meatless Mondays, but let’s just all agree that I’m not very good at goals and leave it at that. On the positive side, I am still on my kick of eating less meat. So although I haven’t designated a specific day to vegetarianism, I am making some pretty tasty meat-free meals … More i snuck fake chicken into dinner (and burned my face with jalapeño juice)
Sometimes I’m searching for a meme that perfectly portrays my contempt for accidentally using the wrong your/you’re in chat, and I end up finding an amazing gem such as this: And I think to myself, it’s true…I have such an inner struggle between delicious food and wanting to look model-hot in my swimsuit. When I first moved … More tacos are just the beginning
Mason has been reading The Omnivore’s Dilemma at school these past few weeks, resulting in him (and subsequently Milo) looking for and pointing out every place they find corn. Mason has been so excited about this book, which has made me a little mom-proud that I have a child who cares about food sources and healthiness. … More is there corn in that?
Today started so normal.

Of course, by then I … More i can’t follow recipes
