We HEART…Oakmont Farmers Market

Believe it or not, people ask my team and me for our opinions all the time. We get asked everything – recommendations for restaurants, plumbers, or where to get the best fitness gear. The “WE HEART…” section is a resource guide of sorts featuring a business that my team and/or I frequent and “love” for…

So, what CAN you eat?

I’ve always been the odd one at family gatherings. The one who didn’t eat collard greens (oh, how that has changed), the one who didn’t eat meat (at least not for 13 years), the one who passed on the cake. It’s hard not to get scrutinized at large events. Now that I’m eating strict Paleo…

Just off the vine – STRAWBERRIES!

Back in the day, like in 1997, the supermarket produce section was a veritable wasteland, at least when it came to fruit. Between the months of October and April selection was limited to oranges, apples, bananas and maybe grapes. May was always a celebration for me, for with the arrival of late spring came a…

Walmart vs. Whole Foods?

Interesting article on Walmart’s foray into the organic/buy local marketplace. Is the same retailer that’s been accused of pushing out the little guy (farmers and small businesses alike) motivated by a desire to support those same little guys while supplying us with affordable healthy produce  or the desire for profit? You be the judge. Side…

Baked Kale

African Americans like greens. OK, that’s a total generalization but to be fair greens are an important part of soul food cooking – collards, turnip greens, mustard greens and even kale. Growing up my mother extolled the virtues of greens, but I wasn’t buying what she was selling. I didn’t develop my appreciation for the…

WEGMANS! I think I’m in love…

Is it possible to love an inanimate object?  What about an edifice and all of it’s gastronomic delights? I was in West Chester this weekend and decided to take a detour on my way home to check out the Wegmans in Downingtown. I’d heard people rave about the grocery chain for years and wanted to…

Living in a Paleo World but am I a Paleo girl?

I started the Paleo Diet Challenge, the team challenge that I doing with the folks at CFDV, on January 4th. I broke the news about The Challenge to The Husband on Christmas Eve while we were in Giant doing our food shopping for Christmas dinner. “So, I guess I should tell you now… I’m doing…

New Year’s shopping list

Ah, January 4th. The first Monday after the New Year. The reset button has been pushed; time to get back to routine. Most people are headed back to work for the first time in a few days, if not weeks.  And let’s not forget the daily workout – a routine that some haven’t engaged in…

It IS easy being green

I find that many of my new clients have trouble getting in the recommended 3-5 servings of vegetables a day, not to mention the recommended 3 servings a week of green leafy vegetables. My clients are no different from most Americans. According to surveys conducted by the CDC only 27% of adults get the recommended amount of daily vegetable servings.…
