Peru, part 5

I did, of course, take a Total Blender along to Peru to teach the orphanage’s cook. The kids were enthralled with how high tech it is. Here’s Carlos drinking a green smoothie and a not-great photo of me making it. I went to this open-air market (that’s how you buy food in Peru) and chose […]

At their dad’s home, my children get a salad with dinner, but also sugar cereal, Top Ramen, junk-food snacks, meat […]

Your kids are “picky,” you say? I get that. I’ve got two kids like that. I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I […]

It’s a long and winding road to good nutrition!

Why does a green smoothie come FIRST as I change what I eat?
