  1. How to be a mom.

    I don’t usually write purely personal posts, because I started my blog with the intention of sharing about food. But I haven’t been thinking much about food and nutrition lately. I even stopped posting altogether for a while, but a good friend encouraged me to share my thoughts, put them out in the universe, and just KEEP WRITING. (Thank you, Nicole!) Bear with me. This is bound to be a… Read More

  2. Consumed By Our Things

    I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on life throughout our migration west. One of the things that stands out the most is how much “stuff” we have accumulated and how little we need any of it. (Apologies for the gruesome photo.)   In the last 10 years, we have lived in 6 different dwellings: 3 in DC, 2 in NY, and now 1 in CA.  We’ve amassed 2 storage… Read More

  3. Sneaky Ways to Be Active with a Sedentary Lifestyle

    One thing that changes when you move from NY to CA is that you drive, like everywhere. I knew I’d miss the effortlessly active lifestyle we left in New York. We didn’t have a car, we didn’t need a car – I could cover 5 to 10 miles in a day just with my work commute and errands without even feeling like I had “exercised.”   Since most of my… Read More

    I’m wandering around the house, finding a million things to do all at once. Even sitting down to type this is a chore (I just heard the dryer beep), but I think my brain needs a focused exercise. And I need an outlet. This move from New York to San Francisco has not been easy. I left a large part of me back in Brooklyn (friends, loved ones, support system,… Read More

  5. Goodbye, New York.

    Food has been the last thing on my mind, yet it’s one of the few things keeping me grounded. Let me explain. We recently made the decision to move to San Francisco after my husband, Javier, got a career opportunity that was too good to pass up. It’s been an emotional month that had me saying goodbye to my patients at my midtown office, my Nourish Snacks family I’ve grown… Read More

    You know the moment. The day is done, the dishes are clean, maybe the kids are tucked into bed or you just wrapped up a big work project. I look forward to this time when I can finally put my feet up and slowly savor my glass of red wine. Bliss.

  7. Why “Fat Free” does not mean better-for-you

    If you read anything diet-related in the 80s, you’ve likely been brainwashed into thinking fat is bad. I was an impressionable kid during this era of cream cheese-less bagels, “fat free” pretzels (as if pretzels contained fat to begin with), and SnackWell’s, and it’s taken years for me to overcome my instinct to grab the fat-free cream cheese. The truth is you need fat in order to absorb certain vitamins… Read More
