Because It Feels Good

When in doubt, hug it out!

I think this qualifies under the “feels good” category?

Know Your Food

This post talks about the meaning of the word organic as it pertains to our food. It’s a lot of quotes from the book The Omnivore’s Dilemma, but since I haven’t read it yet I found the post pretty interesting. Especially since I often buy the “washed 3x” organic lettuce in a box. Not only wasteful, I know, but possibly chlorinated?

Oh Nutella, how I loved you and pined for you since I gave you the boot. Thankfully I’ve found an alternative in Justin’s Nut Butters. Here’s why you might want to look for an alternative to Nutella too.

Did you or a loved one suffer from that insufferable cough that lasted for weeks after the cold was gone? Yeah, we did too. If only this how to massage video was on my screen a month ago.

Prioritize Your Life

Cooking Real Food is a lot of fun most of the time, but that doesn’t mean I want to spend forever in the kitchen. Here are 4 ways to save time and the virtues of cleaning up as you go (my dad’s mantra).

Are you a Pinner? Do you use Pinterest to plan your weekly menus?

Make It

My friend Chelsea swears by this baked hard boiled egg method and I’m pretty sure I will too.
