I’m always trying to go beyond the boxed cereals and find delicious and healthy breakfast ideas to serve my family. I guess I’m not alone because this post still gets a lot of Google traffic, even though I wrote it 5 years ago. I’ve posted quite a few breakfast recipes since I originally wrote this post, so I thought it was high time to update and republish. I hope it gives you some new breakfast ideas to try!
But where to begin?? Real food… paleo… gluten-free… primal… vegetarian… Every time you turn around, a new study comes out debunking the last, and it is all so confusing that it’s tempting to put one’s head in a bag of Doritos and ignore all the advice. My friend Cathy send me this email earlier this week, and I asked her permission to turn it into a blog post: I have been doing my own research on changing up our diet. And I
Milk is one of those food products that we don’t really need to live on, but it is integral to most of our diets . . . especially those of us who have young kids.

And actually, much of the information in the chicken chapter is relevant to eggs, since of course I’m talking about chicken eggs.
Continuing with my series on Real Food and What To Buy, let’s discuss seafood. Most health-conscious folks agree that fish is good for you, but as with most foods these days, it’s not that simple. Most conventional health and nutrition professionals will tell you to stick with the oily kinds, such as salmon, tuna, sardines, etc. as they deliver those heart- and brain-healthy omega-3 fats we hear so much about. But fish in general is a good source
A few weeks ago, we discussed beef and what our options are. I’m cheating a bit this week because I wrote a post specifically about chicken back in 2009 and this one is going to be very similar with some updating. My philosophy on what is best hasn’t changed in five years (HAS IT REALLY BEEN FIVE YEARS???? OMG!!!) but reality has changed a bit. I keep meaning to drive out to my favorite Amish farm and stock up on
When I first discovered the concept of eating real whole foods and eschewing food products created in factories that come in bags and boxes, it seemed so simple. I thought I’d finally come onto a simple way to tell what you should eat and what you shouldn’t. And it definitely simplifies the issue, but it’s still not easy to know what is best to feed your family. Take meat, for instance. It would seem that buying raw meat at the
