Creativity came to me as I looked at the fresh apricots while making guacamole, mushing the avocados down with a fork. The purple yams had already been steaming, just by chance, because it was time to make them. None of these separate ingredients were intended to get mixed together initially. I knew my husband would […]

Fitness for Fun studio? Anywhere?
Here in Arizona, where the sun shines a lot, we have fantastic athletes. We have award winning dance studios. But not all of us want to spend every minute destroying our cartilage for a physical activity. Some of us want to exercise 2-4 hours a week, while maintaining other focuses like academics. For adults it […]
Pet Peeves and Suggestions About Physical Education in Our State:
1. PE classes alienate the students who the classes are supposed to teach. Anyone who is slightly overweight is immediately intimidated by PE classes. We lose them around first grade. 2. PE teachers focus on competition and team sports. They discourage students from listening to their body when they are in pain. They discourage students […]
Enough With Competitive Sports!
I would like to see more extra-curricular options that give children pleasure through sports without adding stress to their lives. As an adult, when I go to the gym, I do it for pleasure, to unwind and to stay healthy. I have been doing this consistently since I was young. I don’t need a competition […]

The Truth about Split Ends!
By split ends, I am referring to… split ends. It’s a frivolous, flimsy subject matter, except for the industries that earn from selling products or services to combat split ends. If you are a guy, you have no idea what that is. All girls know to fear split ends, but few understand the truth about […]
Nursing is not Easy
The following entries have advice on nursing. I have nursed all three daughters it seems without much of a break for the past decade. While I am writing here information that I rarely see elsewhere, I am not saying any of it is easy. In 2008, I was promoting the heart hand gesture, which I […]
Nursing Benefits that No One Talks About
No one reveals a particular benefit of nursing, so I will. Articles often mention the benefits of antibodies that the mother transfers to the child in the first six months of nursing. These antibodies are a special collection that the mother’s body learned to make from illnesses she had throughout her life. It is useful […]
Nursing on Demand
Nursing on demand means that the mother’s body will be perfectly synchronized with her child’s needs. A mother who nurses on demand purely from her breast and not from a bottle will know when her child is hungry even if she leaves the house. Nature provided a perfect mechanism to keep mothers close enough to […]
Never Schedule Feedings by HeartMark Health
The idea of scheduling a young baby to eat at scheduled times sends shivers down my spine. It is the opposite of everything that HeartMark Health stands for on many levels. First, the baby grows at different rates and changes their periods of activity. This means that the baby will need different amounts of nutrition […]

However, when their milk runs out fast and they wonder why, I want to provide the explanation. Information is key to help mothers make the best choices for themselves. The child’s requests for […]
Why We Spend Way Too Much When We Shop
Here I go about the Hemispheres again: Shopping can easily become a right hemisphere activity. Most people don’t leave the house armed with left hemisphere lists, coupons, and plans for what they’ll buy. If they do, they are protecting their left hemisphere from what is about to be an explosion of activity by the right. […]
