Winter Veggie Dinner

I have been craving butternut squash and brussels sprouts all winter long. I have no idea why I have been having such specific cravings!  And no, it’s not because I’m pregnant!

The Business of Being Born…in America

I finally watched the documentary The Business of Being Born.  Can I just say whoa! What an eye-opener. The film takes a hard look at the modern American delivery room and makes a strong case for natural childbirth overseen by experienced midwifes.

Say NO to the Airplane Food

I’m always fascinated by what people are willing to eat on airplanes. Completely sane people will eat processed-to-death food that has been microwaved in plastic containers that are also wrapped in plastic! I should know, I used to be one of them. But now I think it’s just kinda gross. Unfortunately it’s also easy and [...]
