Voila! Ready to go.

Why do scientific things have to sound so un-sexy?

Take the word phytochemical.

Even if I use my most seductive sounding voice and whisper it in your ear, while rubbing a champagne drenched strawberry across your lips, you’re not going to get turned on.

Over the weekend I was getting my legs waxed and my esthetician asked me what I do for a living.

What I do isn’t exactly cut and dry like it is for some professions. School teacher, nurse, mechanic – these are all pretty standard answers that don’t require extra creativity in getting people on board with what you do. Read more…

Cold Grain Cereal with Blueberries, Banana, Apple and Walnuts_Top Shot

When I was little my mom would make me cold rice cereal for breakfast.

She would put leftover brown rice in a bowl and add raisins, cinnamon, chopped almonds, rice milk and a tiny bit of maple syrup.

I enjoyed this breakfast. Until I discovered Rice Krispies.

Last week I gave you part one of  how to make healthy eating stick.

This week I give you part two.

Eating healthy can be a debbie downer, especially if you do it sporadically.

Just like most things, the more often you eat healthy the more you’ll want to eat healthy.

Do you ever get the hiccups in the morning and then keep getting them intermittently throughout the WHOLE day?

It happened to me last Monday, and by the end of the day I was annoyed as shit.

In a perfect world we would all be like Jennifer Aniston, glowing like there’s a human sized soft-glow light bulb inside of us, always turned on.

Do you agree with me that she probably eats one chocolate chip for dessert and calls it a night?

Get in my mouth!

When I was 14 I begged my mom to take me to the health department so I could apply for a work permit.

My plan was to get my driver’s license when I was 15 after a summer of driver’s ed. There was no point in having a driver’s license if I didn’t have wheels, and there were no wheels without cash, and there was no cash without a job, and at 14 it was illegal to have a job, unless of course, you had a work permit.

And the healthiest to boot!


A “Whole-Food Plant-Based Diet” is a term coined by Dr. T. Colin Campbell.

Dr. Campbell has written numerous New York Times best selling books, including The China Study and Whole – Rethinking the Science of Nutrition, and has been at the forefront of nutrition research since the 1970’s. (Before my ass was even a concept.) Read more…

The 4th of July kicked major ass for me as a kid.

There was the parade, the ice cream social, the fireworks – it was all very exciting.

Of course, I come from an itty bitty town of 10,273 people, so the festivities were on the smaller scale of things. Luckily, I had no idea since it was the only 4th of July festivities I had ever experienced, the internet wasn’t a thing yet, and my family had no T.V. Read more…

Miso Soup with Burdock, Daikon and Mushrooms

I have never eaten meat in my entire life. My mom and dad raised me vegetarian and it stuck.

I always thought of meat the same way I think about cocaine or acid, if I’ve gone this long without, I’m probably good.

Over three decades without meat, and over half of a decade without dairy has been awesome.

The comments and questions below have made it even more awesome.
