Self care is all the rage right now.

We live in a me-centric society, and we are constantly being fed messages about taking care of you and you do you, girl, and treat yo’sef. Most often, this looks like getting a manicure, eating junk food, getting a massage, or helping yourself to a little retail therapy.

Now, none of these things are inherently wrong, but I think our priorities are off.

When you are willing to drop $50 on your nails, but won’t invest in real food, or clean, orga...

Give me the simple life.

Many times, we find that people are very overwhelmed when it comes to eating healthy. Doing a massive overhaul of your pantry and your personal care products seems impossible, not to mention expensive. I’ve been thinking of ways to encourage people who feel bogged down in the process, and I can’t help but think of my hero, Laura Ingalls Wilder. Whenever I’m tempted to think I need something extra complicated, I think “Laura Ingalls survived without it; so...

The other day, I was watching Little House on the Prairie, which usually provokes tears in me. If Pa is crying, so am I, and Pa is always crying.

I'm sure many of us feel this way at this time of year: overwhelmed. We want to make the season meaningful, we think about creating memories, but  the execution of such desires never quite pans out the way we think it will.

It's no...

Learning to cook has been a challenge for me. My mom started me young, helping her stir ingredients, which was hard, followed by slicing vegetables, which was really hard, followed by getting things in and out of the oven, which seemed absolutely impossible.

The kitchen is full of jars that are hard to open, knives unwieldy to chop with, and pots that are heavy to lift. Simply put, cooking is a task for this girl. But thank God for my mom, who refused to allow me to become depend...

Why does the time change make us more tired?

Why are the autumn holidays so stressful?

     When you think about it, it seems as if suddenly we went from sunshine and warmth to darkness and chill. Turns out, these changes impact us very deeply by making us feel more depressed, which makes us want to eat more “junk food”, which makes us feel more depressed and cranky, etc., etc., etc.  So what can we do to offset some of this?

1. Listen to encouraging music only, TV...

Sugar is hidden everywhere! Even in products labeled sugar-free, you might be surprised at how much hidden sugar can be found. Your body will process sugar as sugar, even if it's disguised as one of the following things. The reason you are struggling to lose weight could be because you are eating something that's really sugar even though you thought it was healthy!

Some of the major sources of refined grains  and hidden sugars that can cause blood sugar problems are : sodas, ke...
