Are you superstitious? Does Friday the 13th make you wake up with your tail between your legs? I’ve always loved it because I was born on the 13th. It’s a great number, and who doesn’t love Friday? Don’t worry I know that it’s not Friday the 13th today, but the last was only a few months ago.
The first Friday the 13th for 2015 was in March, and it was freaky, no doubt. It was the day the GMO apple was approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
Why is the GMO apple freaky? It has nothing to do with Friday the 13th of course, despite the fitting approval date. GMO foods are freaky for many reasons. There are thousands of studies to read as to why.…
Have you ever used a vending machine? What shiny little package shot out of the bottom? When you ate it, how did you feel?
A life-long friendship was birthed out of a moment when I really could have used a vending machine-but not just any vending machine, of course. In 2012, I was dancing for a band, called Durian Sex Cult, while they performed in Santa Cruz, California. An airbrush artist named Kelsea Ernst came to paint the dancers with adornments before the show, and I totally fell in love with her. While she was airbrushing black lace cuffs on my wrists, I was expressing my deep desire for something delicious to eat to my husband Joe, sitting next to me.…
How much do you spend per month on groceries?
My family certainly spends more than $100 each month.
Earlier this week, I spoke with a gentleman who has a $100 budget
for food every month. During our strategy session, I gave him many suggestions for improving his health, and unfortunately, many products that I suggested would take him out of his budget.
Another friend of mine mentioned that during the holidays, her food budget decreases, because she’s spending a lot of her income on gifts. Yet another friend mentioned that eating well is too expensive, and requires too much time.
I had to get creative.
Organic really is more expensive. If you go to your local grocery store and compare conventional produce to organic, you’ll see the difference, if you haven’t already noticed. …
FREAKING elated. Yup. That’s what I was during a class I attended at Rainbow Grocery Cooperative in San Francisco. This class drew me in with the saucy subject; Libido and Sexual Health. “Poop,” as you may have noticed in the title of this post, is a bold way of referring to digestion. I will expound more on this topic in following posts! The main topics of the class were as follows:
- Which foods boost and which foods squash your sex drive
- The connection between your mind, heart and libido
- Understanding the role of hormones
- The role of stress and mood on your sex life
- Herbs that support libido and sexual well being
The three presenters, Sara Reed, Marisol Kim, and Sara Jane Gorman delivered such intriguing and useful information that I was literally on the edge of my seat, while attempting to take notes at lightning speed.…
Jenny L.: “Great Blog! I’m married to a chef and would love to see you write about getting your partner on board with revamping the kitchen.”
Lana: “Love it! Totally part of the plan…stay tuned! I’ll certainly zero in on this!”
Jenny L.: “Cool. Because I’m gluten and dairy free and more…he can eat what he wants and thinks organic “isn’t worth it””
This is the good stuff. This is where food gets fun. When we can make LOVE in the kitchen.
What better way to dive in, then sharing my own journey? My own story of how love began in the kitchen. There’s a whole wild ride that took me to South Jersey and to the doorstep of a man’s home who is now my husband. …
