First of all, thanks for all your comments yesterday. I definitely plan on looking into some of your suggestions about food eliminations to help ease the symptoms of Hashimoto’s.

You haven’t seen a picture of my dog in a while. So please, take a moment to revel in how adorable Inez is. Yes, it has occurred to me that I need a hobby that isn’t lavishing obscene amounts of affection on my dog, but I don’t have time for that…I have a dog that […]

So, 2015 went pretty quick, huh?

I have to say that I generally consider Halloween the beginning of the end of the year, and everything that comes next is just a preface to the awesome that the New Year is going to be. Kind of like how the beginning of June ask a kid was always […]

When it comes to food, my husband is a simple man. He’s a vegetarian. And he would eat Mexican food 100% of the time if I would allow it. 

For his birthday last month I surprised him with a vegetarian cooking class at the Institute of Culinary Education. Last night was show time. To be honest, […]

Hey Friends,

Long time no write. I have had a crazy couple of months with a book deadline, speaking engagements, and an article for a magazine I had to whip up on short notice, and all the craziness that my life consists of on a daily basis. I know that there are some writers out there […]

I’ve been on a diet since I was about seven. I actually write a lot about my disordered dieting history in my next book, so I’m not going to go into it completely here, but just know that I’ve spent almost the whole of my life obsessing over my weight. For the most part I’d […]

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend. There’s something about the 4th of July that means it’s really summer to me. We ended up spending the 4th inside with the pups, but celebrated on the 5th with Roy’s family.

Now that all that eating is over I’m trying something new: I’m giving the 21-Day […]

Meal Prep and Why I’m Boycotting Ziploc

By |July 4th, 2015|Daily Confessional|6 Comments

Happy Independence Day (for ye fellow Americans)! I wrote a couple of years ago about why living with/being married to an immigrant has made me much more patriotic.
