The grass is green: Spring is here. Mud Season over

The grass is green: Spring is here. Mud Season over

It wasn’t until I read A Year at North Hill : Four Seasons in a Vermont Garden by Wayne Winterrowd and Joe Eck that I made the connection between the greening of the grass and the frost finally being out of the ground. Grass doesn’t grow in frozen soil, and neither does rain percolate down into the frozen earth

Simple Chicken Bone Broth

Simple Chicken Bone Broth

I love using my oven in the winter to roast just about anything. About two times per month we roast an organic chicken and then I use the carcass to make stock/broth for soups. I’ve done this for as long as I can remember and learned it from Ma McCarthy. But years ago, I never knew what a healing superfood I was making until I became a nutritionist. I’m so excited to share this information with you!

Homemade Organic Applesauce

Homemade Organic Applesauce

Be sure to buy organic apples when you make this. Apples are one of the most highly sprayed fruits.It doesn’t matter if they are local, I still recommend certified organic. It is especially important to choose organic if you are making this for your babe. Tiny bodies are not well-equipped to deal with pesticides.

Joyous Baby: Vienna’s Sixth Month!

Joyous Baby: Vienna’s Sixth Month!

I had such good intentions to post an update on baby Vienna every month, but as you can tell I’ve gotten a little behind. Truth is, I’ve been a little busy…. as I’m sure you can imagine! Being a working mama is rewarding but it also has it’s challenges. Thankfully I have an amazing hubby who is an incredible dad and right now he’s putting Vienna to bed as I write this blog post. :)

Key Lime Avocado Tart

Key Lime Avocado Tart

Happy St. Patty’s Day! In the spirit of all things green, I created this wonderfully fresh and fulfilling dessert – key lime avocado tarts! I used the Key Lime Pudding recipe from my book Joyous Health and then created a delicious tart crust for the base. You don’t need to turn on the stove or the oven because this recipe requires no baking, just perfectly ripe avocados and some whole food-based ingredients.

A brief history of cycling politicians

A brief history of cycling politicians

From Norman Tebbit’s infamous advice to the unemployed to get on their bikes to the Plebgate row, cycling has a long history of being embroiled in British political controversy and intrigue. So it is not surprising that Jeremy Corbyn, perhaps Labour most divisive leader in recent history, has been accused of riding a Chairman Mao bicycle – a rumour he brushed off when discussing his love of cycling in an interview with the Tour de France winner and Olympic Gold medallist Sir Bradley Wiggins, who was guest-editing BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

Writing an anti-cycling column? Read this first

Writing an anti-cycling column? Read this first

Maybe it’s just the end-of-year effect, with ideas running low and a couple more commissions to fulfil. Or perhaps it’s just the traditional news lull over the festive period, obliging newspaper columnists to dig into their own experiences and prejudices. Whatever the reason, we’ve been somewhat spoiled recently with slightly silly opinion pieces about cycling.

The secret of Odense's post-industrial revolution

The secret of Odense's post-industrial revolution
The huge, wooden scale model of Odense, inside a temporary information centre opposite the town hall, looks initially like a replica of the Danish city. But give them a few minutes and a local would begin to spot some differences, especially to the main traffic route bisecting the urban centre. Read more »

Breaking down barriers to cycling with Brothers on Bikes

 Breaking down barriers to cycling with Brothers on Bikes
In his Foreword to his 2013 Vision for Cycling in London, Boris Johnson candidly acknowledged that “truly mass participation” in two-wheel travel around the capital cannot be achieved unless more Londoners from those groups under represented in the city’s small but growing cycling population decide it’s better to get around by bike.
