When ice cream is more than just ice cream

My daughter’s asleep, the dishes have been washed, and (most of) the toys have been picked up off the floor. I walked towards the kitchen with just one thing on my mind…ice cream. I take two scoops of Double Dark Chocolate gelato (my absolute favorite Talenti gelato flavor) and ease myself onto the couch. For the next 10 minutes, there is nothing else on my mind. I’m not thinking about how I need to pack snacks for our mid-morning play date the next day, or how there are clean clothes in the dryer that need to be folded, or how there are countless emails to be answered. I take a reprieve from all of my responsibilities for a few brief moments, Read More…

Tricks for handling Halloween treats

Halloween was probably one of my favorite holidays growing up. Yes, I enjoyed dressing up and being someone else for the day, but truth be told, I was mostly in it for the CANDY! I have fond memories of getting home from a night of trick-or-treating and lording over my stash of Halloween candy.

She was someone who never said a negative word about another person, and rarely complained. She had a spreadsheet outlining each grandchild’s and great grandchild’s birthdays, and we all looked forward to her singing telegrams each year (which always ended with “and many maaaw” in her thick New York accent!). Another thing I will always remember about my grandma was that she had a sweet tooth, and loved chocolate, cake, cookies, ice cream…you name it! Read More…

St. Paddy’s Day and the giant chocolate bar

I went out briefly last night for St. Patrick’s day (I had to debut my awesome O’bama t-shirt!), and ran into a friend who confessed that he had been reading my blog. He said it was good, but, “I just can’t do that right now.” I asked him what he meant, and he said that he couldn’t eat whatever he wanted whenever he wanted it, because he would eat crap all the time and be enormously overweight. I think that’s a common misconception about intuitive eating, and one that I hope to dispel in this blog. I’m realizing that it’s quite difficult to explain the entire philosophy in short blog posts (you really should read the book or listen to the CDs Read More…
