Last weekend an op-ed was published in the NYT that spoke to my heart, and the hearts of thousands of other women. If you haven't read it, take a look here - NYT Op-Ed. I promise it will speak to you. Does this sound familiar? Every new regimen ended in the same violent binge. I’d... Continue Reading →
For the past 20 years I have felt a passion and drive to help others become the healthiest versions of themselves. The way this looks has changed astronomically during the past 20 years but as I reflect on this passion, I have learned the intention has always been the same - help people become whole....

We've been making homemade bread for years. Typically we would make it in the breadmaker, but since moving to Colorado we've noticed the bread doesn't turn out nearly as well since were baking at altitude. Jason searched for a number of bread recipes and after about half a dozen trials I think he's come up... Continue Reading →
Finally a short day! I have been on service for the past 8 weeks. That's 560 hours of work in 8 weeks - basically what most people work in 16 weeks. Needless to say I wasn't complaining when I got done at 3pm today. So, I figured I'd celebrate by hanging out with my little... Continue Reading →
Take some time to review this awesome post on the importance of proper posture throughout the day!
It’s rare I meet a woman with a diastasis recti who hasn’t beat herself up for “slacking off on my exercises” (I bet men would
say the same thing, but I’ve never yet met a man who realizes he has a DR. Come join the DiastasisRectified party, guys!).
The paradigm is: 1) “my body is screwed up” and 2) “I need to do exercises to get it better” and 3) “Why am I not doing my exercises?” 4) “Ugggggh.”
So this post is not about exercises, because let’s just give that a rest for a minute. This post is about habits. We’ve spent (x) number of decades forming habits of movement: how we brush teeth, lounge, carry stuff, sit, open stuff, cut things, and on and on. Maybe we spend one hour…

Science of Mom reader Roxanne left a comment on my post about the recent peanut allergy study. She wondered about starting solid foods with her 4-month-old baby boy:
“Do you have an opinion on starting solids at 4 months versus 6 months? I noticed that many of the studies on allergy include babies in the 4-6 month range, but I think that the current recommendation is to wait until 6 months. I ask because my baby WILL NOT drink out of a bottle while I’m at work. He is miserable all day. I’m only gone 8-3 including travel time, so if he could just get a little something at 11am, I think he might actually nap and not cry all day. We have tried everything. If you know of any studies please let me know. He is 18 weeks old.”
I totally understand Roxanne’s confusion, because there’s lots of…

It’s been a while since I lacked blogspiration. But here I am, I’ve scrolled through facebook and twitter for something to get riled up about and I must admit it was slim pickings. Sure, it’s irksome that Pippa Middleton has “secretly” become a nutritionist. Not so much so that I could be bothered to write an entire blog post about it. Mother Jones has moved on from almonds and is now telling us that there will be no more salads because of the drought in California. Yes, I know that this drought is a serious issue and I really feel for the people of Cali. However, for now, my local farmer’s market has got me covered thank you very much. The only thing that really got even the tiniest bit under my skin was a tweet from a doctor saying that nutritionists think they have more information than they actually…

Did you know that many employers don’t offer dietitian services as part of their employee health plans? Considering that food and nutrition are vital to good health and productive employees our services should be covered by health plans. If your employer doesn’t cover our services please let them know that you’d like them too!
