• How dreams come true: Do one thing (at a time).

    Do one thing. Hard to do, but that’s the key. One thing. (At a time.) I’m still on a high. Revved with the juice of being in the presence of thousands of souls, just like me, who want to feel good and do good in the world. Chef Ann Cooper rounded out the Institute for… [Continue Reading]

  • Great balls of lifeyum (raw, vegan, GF protein balls drizzled in chocolate)

    Do you ever feel like the grim reaper at meal time? A total nag? Find candy wrappers under your kids’ beds? Maybe it’s just me. But when our then two-year-old was diagnosed with eosinophilic esophagitis five years ago, I went into full-blown nutrition researcher-internet doctor-read every book I could get my hands on-mode. Eliminating dairy dramatically… [Continue Reading]

  • How to Solve the Morning Crankiness Problem

    Start with good. Simple morning turnaround advice from a little friend. 1. Drink water first. (Note from Lisa: Add fresh lemon juice to continue your overnight detox…or not. Have the coffee if it feels right.) 2. Think about rainbows, and how cool it would be to get a cast and have all your friends sign… [Continue Reading]

    If there was one thing that 2013 crystalized for me, it was that I can be OK even if everything else isn’t. And you can, too.

  • You were born to be loved. I’m talking to you.

    Have you ever read something and thought the writer was speaking directly to you? Paul Jarvis’ email hit me that way yesterday, and I thought to myself: It’s time. Time to stop worrying about, feeling bad about, banging myself over the head about: …writing shorter, punchier posts. …how long it has been since my last… [Continue Reading]

    You were born to be loved. I’m talking to you.
  • I ate bacon and I liked it. And I’m still a good person.

    And a yogi.* And an animal lover. I’m wildly imperfect. Full of contradictions. And done, totally done, with justifying and explaining. Every dalliance. Every nap. Saying no, thank you. Glass of wine on a school night. Not having a regular blogging schedule (or a regular anything business-oriented). For lack of clarity on anything other than… [Continue Reading]

  • However you get there, get present: a playlist for you.

    When I was 12, I remember so vividly cranking my Flashdance album on the player while cutting out the neck of my sweatshirt. The door was shut. Teenage fantasies of having a body like hers, being that free, leaping with both sets of toes pointing perfectly in opposite directions. Land. Head toss. Twirl fast in… [Continue Reading]
