Cookbook Review: Favorite Family Meals by Annabel Karmel

Annabel Karmel is practically a celebrity in Great Britain. She is a bestselling author, a TV personality, and the mother of three. Her fame comes from her cookbooks that focus on nutrition for families and cooking for babies and toddlers. I recently had the pleasure of reviewing Karmel's Favorite Family Meals, a cookbook originally published […]

FitMama Friday: FruitaBu Review

I've been trying to clear my pantry of processed, sugary, and fatty snack items. In their place, I'm putting organic, healthy, and natural treats that still taste good (and, actually, usually taste better). One snack category that most kids love is the "fruit roll-up"-type. Now, there's a healthier alternative to those neon blue and green […]

Book Review: mom-a-licious

If your New Years resolutions involved eating healthier, losing weight, or purchasing more organic products, then you're sure to be interested in Mom-a-licious, a new cookbook out by Chef Domenica Catelli.

FitMama: Eat More Fruits & Veggies (the easy way)

I like to think that our family eats healthier than the norm. We eat in on most nights. We don't drink soda. We don't have chips, candy, or cookies (except healthier cookies like Snikiddy Chocolate Chippers and Earth's Best Letter of the Day Cookies) laying around. We often buy organic. BUT I'm fairly certain that […]

Most of the cookies in the MI-DEL collection are "snaps": you'll find ginger snaps, vanilla snaps, chocolate snaps, oatmeal raisin snaps, and lemon snaps. MI-DEL also offers honey graham crackers […]

FitMama: Healthy Snack Options for Moms

Exercising regularly has many benefits, but we can't be completely healthy if we don't pay attention to what we eat as well. The food that we put into our bodies can give us energy (or take it away), can help make our metabolisms, our minds, and our digestive systems work more effectively (or less effectively), […]

Quick and Easy Meal Planning for Moms

I just stumbled upon Menus 4 Moms, a website that offers, "FREE weekly menu plans with 5 nights of dinner menus including recipes and grocery list." Many companies offer similar services...but at a cost...so I was happy to find this one. I just got my first week's worth of meals in my inbox. My menu […]

Product Review: Earth's Best Organic Letter of the Day Cookies

From the Earth's Best website: "Earth's Best Sesame Street snacks...are fun, wholesome products fortified with 8 or more essential vitamins and minerals including calcium, iron, zinc and B vitamins." The Letter of the Day Cookies come in two flavors: Oatmeal Cinnamon and Very Vanilla. They are SOOOO good. I could eat them by the handfuls […]
