Welcome to my blog!

I'm an acupuncturist, teacher, fertility specialist, patient centered advocate, mom, activist and more! This blog is a place for me to write down the things on my mind, the things I discuss over and over, and the things I find helpful, interesting, and inspiring all in the hope that someone else out there, maybe YOU, will find some of these things to be helpful, interesting and inspiring too. I love learning, I love sharing, and I am passionate about helping others lead more balanced, fertile, and healthy lives - while trying to do the same myself. So here goes... The Blogging Life...


Podcast - Salt, Sugar, Fat and a Breakfast Idea

Check out this podcast from the good folks at America's Test Kitchen with pulitzer prize winner and author Michael Moss about the industry of junk food in America (Starts at 15:50 marker).  So interesting, and as he states (in so many words)... knowledge is power!

A quick yummy breakfast idea if you are trying to decrease your carbs... I stumbled into this one today:

1/4 cup full fat vanilla yogurt
1 Tablespoon natural salted peanut butter
about 12 frozen raspberries

HOLY MOLY!  SO yummy... I could eat this as a treat... and it's about 12g carbs with the brands I used (check your own).

I ate this with a soft boiled egg with a little organic herby blend seasoning by frontier seasoning blends and a cup of tea.  Perfecto!

Michael Moss was on the Splendid Table this weekend (not sure if it was a replay or not). Really interesting interview and I can't wait to read his book. He mentioned that the CEO (I think...) of Kraft challenged his fellow execs and they all pretty much ignored him. Must find out more about this. :-) Also, have you read Fast Food Nation? Similar ideas behind the two.
