Notes from a Clinical Dietitian

Posted by on August 29, 2012 in Health | Comments Off on Notes from a Clinical Dietitian

I racked my brain for a month or so debating what to write here. I find guest posts so challenging. With my own blog, I have a million chances to re-win an audience. If all else fails, at least there is always my killer banner and backdrop to convince you that I am all at once interesting and professional, fun […]

The Great Balancing Act–By Mary Ellen

“Balance is part of your physical and emotional wellness,” I recently told a room full of clients.   What does this mean?  We are supposed to balance our diet, balance our checkbook, our schedule, and our time.  At the fitness studio where I work, The Dailey Method, we devote a sequence of exercises just to the practice of balance.  Not […]


The Kid’s Kitchen Corner-by Maura

Hi.  My name is Maura Schoenjohn and I am 8 years old. This is my first time writing a blog and I am really excited.  I like reading, drawing, swimming, soccer, animals, and playing with my sister, my friends, and my little brother, too.  My mom is healthier than most moms and also funny and dances in the kitchen a […]

In today’s food industry, convenience is the name of the game and sure, it comes in handy for our busy lifestyles, but is it worth it?  Are there convenience foods that we are just buying out of habit, not for convenience?

The Kitchen Remix-Stephanie’s Story

Today one of my dearest friends asked me what I ate for the day. My list included a smoothie for breakfast, an avocado and banana for lunch (which, she informed me, is also what her 10 month old ate), followed by some red lentils, rice cakes for snacks, and for dinner, Tilapia, roasted cauliflower and a green salad. With a […]
