"Natural" is in. It's trendy. It's the way of living that everyone wants. In terms of food, "natural" is not a defined and regulated food label, so that's purely marketing and does not hold any importance at all. But I'm not just talking about food in this post. So many people are all about the … Continue reading Is All Natural Always Best?
I've been seeing a lot of guilt and food talk recently. Last week I happened to catch this segment on the Today show which made me pretty dang mad. If you don't feel like watching the clip (and I don't blame ya if you don't), they rated different summer foods on the 'guilt-o-meter' to determine … Continue reading The words Food and Guilt do not belong together

I can't tell you how many times a day I (and we all) hear people comment on the way others look....often, … Continue reading People are more than their bodies
I'm a total food documentary junkie! I've probably seen every food doc on Netflix, so of course I jumped at the chance to watch a new one when I heard about What the Health. The film has been getting tons of buzz lately - both positive and negative - and all the differing reactions can … Continue reading What the Health?
