Yes, I am rocking a sweet coach whistle and suede boots. I made a kid cry today. As an elementary school teacher, this is neither the first time this has happened, nor will it be the last, but no matter how many times it goes down, the experience always prompts this odd mixed reaction of devastation, horror, and completely inappropriate stifled laughter, like the kind you have at a funeral, like the more you think about it, the more terrified you become that you’re actually going to laugh in his little face.
When you’re following a Paleo diet, game day (or any party for that matter) can get a little tricky. Jalapeño poppers, chicken tenders, and fried everything just seems like part of the package, right?
Corny as it may sound, the best kind of body positivity comes from within. That’s not to say we don’t appreciate a little help along the way, especially if it's coming from someone like Jay Kennedy.
On the surface, my family appeared to have a genetically uncomplicated story—we believed that we were of Italian and Irish descent.

Not my favorite place to be, but still smiling. I fell for the natural living movement hook, line, and sinker.
Chili is one of those cozy dinners we make once a week come wintertime. We’re pretty much always craving a spicy, warm bowlful.
Becoming a mother is, among other things, a shock to the system. You've got to deal with all sorts of physical, mental, and emotional changes.
When we picture a ballerina, we think of someone who's tiny. No, tinier than that. Waifish, even. But ballet is about pulling off stunning arabesques and pirouettes, not the size of your thighs or the legnth of your arms.
We’ve said it before: Bowl food rocks. Seriously, mounds of veg, protein, and greens, usually drizzled with some delightfully creamy sauce...
The author, Alexis, and her dog, Giant. It's easy to set healthy goals, but actually achieving them is much, much harder.
Of all the breakfast foods we love (dang, there are so many), waffles tend to get forgotten on the #healthyish eating spectrum.
