10 Years Without Meat

Happy Anniversary to me!!! This spring marks TEN YEARS without eating meat!  That includes seafood as well.  And I celebrate my choice every single day, and really, every meal. People ask if it was hard, where do I get my protein, if I miss meat, and why I gave it up.  To answer those loaded... Continue Reading →

Observations and fears while being pregnant

I have recently made the mistake of asking some questions or for advice for my baby on social media.  While most people are kind and helpful, there are a few that have no place in giving their opinions.  Men (no uterus, no opinion about pregnancy or breastfeeding).  Women that have never experienced pregnancy, have no...

a week back to balance (cont.)

As I continue this journey back to a more balanced life, I am beginning to feel better physically and mentally.  When I am eating reasonable portions, I feel satisfied but not overly so.  I am fully aware that it would be better to have a side of spinach instead of a side of corn or...
