We all want our kids to eat more greens. In fact, I think that we can all agree that eating more kale, spinach, romaine and other great greens can only help our overall health.

When tragedy strikes, it is hard enough as adults to deal with our emotions. As the parents to small children, it is easy to wonder how we should talk to our kids about tragedy and how to cope with it. While it might be scary and seem easier to just ignore all the outside stimuli, it is nearly impossible to hide what has happened from our children, and with so many friends and families talking about the most recent events, don’t you want the news to come from you rather than someone else? Establishing a circle of trust and a safe place to share emotions is important for their development now and in the future.
When tragedy strikes, it is easy to get engulfed in the details from many news outlets and the internet, but three children from Winter Garden, FL have decided to help in the only way they know how…with love.
Change is hard. Most people don’t like change. We learn from our parents and we take what they give us and build upon it. This is often true for all of life. When it comes to the food we eat, this is also true. As you can imagine, when someone tells you that you need to make a change to the way you eat and think about food, it can be scary to say the least.
I went to bed last night a bit upset and woke up this morning as I took my little baby boy in my hands and still felt incredibly uneasy. I went to the gym to try to get back into my normal routine, but every single one of the flat screens in the gym had the images, the stories, the interviews. Something isn’t right with me and I can’t explain it, but I know that it has everything to do with this event.
I have a confession to make. I love to clean. Yes, I am a dad and I have lots of kids, which almost guarantees that keeping the house clean is a monumental task, but still…I love it. One of my high school friends to this day still calls me Danny Tanner (Full House reference) and I take it as a compliment. That dude was a clean guy!
Incorporating a vegan or mostly plant-based diet can be difficult for anyone, especially vampires. The social and emotional attachments that many have to food can be daunting when starting a vegan diet and no one understands that more than Phyto the vampire.
I like to think of myself as a moderately fashionable dad. Better than the average dad, but nothing special. My wife will tell you she’s the same…except the dad part. One thing is for sure. Neither of us like to shop for clothing. My seven-year-old daughter, however, is a fashionista!

Socrates would be so mad at me for what happened today. The man who once said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine by thy food,” was screaming at me from the heavens today. If I hadn’t heard him, then a lot of unnecessary, expensive and exhausting medical procedures might have followed. Here’s how to get your kids to stop taking children’s allergy medicine like candy every day.
I love juicing, but sometimes I just don’t have the time. On the weekend, I have some extra time to take out my juicer, prepare my fresh fruits and veggies and clean up the pieces after I am done, but sometimes I just want something I can grab and go. That’s why I love Noble Juice.
The first step for me was education. I read as much as I could on the subject. All the Engine 2 books, videos, and online resources were a huge help. I was motivated by the success stories, encouraged by the wealth of medical support, and excited to try a lot of the recipes that I had found.

My new friends and I talked about what it feels like to “be those parents.” The ones with the high-maintenance ways of life. The ones who say, “no thank you,” to cake at the party.

I hereby pledge to stay in my pajama pants for several hours on Sundays from here on out. Why? Sometimes life can get the best of me with all the business and running around we do.
I decided I could no longer take them for granted. I realized that I had been living my life chained to a hamster wheel that I forced myself to get on each day. And that is not to say that I didn’t love everything I was doing…quite the contrary. I love my husband, my family, my dog, my job, and I even love carting the kids to their myriad activities…but I wasn’t taking them IN.
