  • Healthy Eating for Kids: Brussels Sprouts are My Daughter’s Favorite Food (Really!)

    How a tragedy helped my daughter develop healthy eating habits early on.

    When it was discovered at my daughter’s 3-month check-up that she was losing weight because I actually had a very low breast milk supply, I was about as devastated as I’d ever been in my life. “You have to add formula” the doctor insisted. I refused. We hired multiple lactation consultants and tried everything to get my body to make more milk. I was taking so much fenugreek that it sent my hormones into batshit crazy mode. I couldn’t sleep. I was feverish and sweating constantly. Crying all the time. And after six weeks of herbs, breast compressions, round the clock feeding and pumping, it still didn’t give me the boost I needed to properly feed my daughter. Already back at work (home-based), I was completely overwhelmed. More

  • Not as Hard as You Think: Veganism is My ‘Easy Button’ for Healthy Eating

    ‘I just could never do it!’ my friend said. ‘Just, gosh, the constant vigilance — I could never be vegan, it’d be way too hard for me!’ Then she told me all about the new Weight Watcher’s plan she’s on now, since the gluten-free diet failed to perform as promised. Points, lists, calories, meetings, portion measurements — all designed to counteract the chronic obesity spiking her risks for diabetes, stroke, cancer, heart disease, and early mortality resulting from standard American food habits.
