Category Archive for 'Favorite Things Friday'

Things crunchy and green tend to take a backseat when someone is going through a major life crisis. (I don’t want to even think about the carbon and waste generated by my night in the hospital. All that gauze! All those tubes, needles, and chucks!) I’m feeling more like myself these days, so much so [...]

Uggg. I’ve been messing with the design of this page, trying to improve social sharing. (And hoping to get more people to like the site on Facebook. What?!? You don’t like NaturalAsPossibleMom.com yet?!? Just click on the Facebook link below the TopMommyBlogs box below.) Anyway, my web designer (aka my husband) found a cute Twitter [...]

Let me start by saying this week has largely sucked. I have been so busy that I have that deer in the headlights feeling from the moment I wake up until the moment I go to sleep. My mom is mad at me for something that happened last weekend. Not ready to write about that [...]

When I was 18-weeks pregnant with Big Girl I got an assignment from Yoga Journal to write about Thai Yoga Massage. As a result, I found myself alone on a press trip at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. It was, by far, the best trip I have ever been on. I grew quite a [...]

Today did not start well. Last night we had lots of wind in New York. Something about it set me off. I had nightmares literally all night. One after the other. I can’t remember what they were about aside from one where I was being electrocuted. (Nice, right?) But they kept me and my husband [...]

I’ve been complaining about the quality of kids’ snacks for a while now. Many traditional manufacturers seem to put little if any thought into the ingredients. High fructose corn syrup. Preservatives. Artificial colors. Artificial flavors. Hydrogenated oils. The more unpronounceable the ingredient, the better. Case in point: traditional General Mills Fruit Roll-Ups. Check out the [...]

I started my career writing about technology and business. I was on staff at several computer pubs including PC Magazine where I wrote one or two product reviews daily. When I left to finish my master’s and freelance (on October 16, 1999) I was extremely lucky. I continued writing reviews and product-related stories, seeing my [...]

I have a big problem with plastic. It’s everywhere. Everything we buy — even at environmentally-conscious stores — is wrapped in it. Bread comes in plastic bags. Cereal is in a box. Inside the box: a plastic bag. Most cheese is wrapped in plastic. Even the paper milk cartons we use are lined with plastic. [...]
