The most important thing for weight loss

As a wedding present, Dr. P got me a nice camera. It’s my favorite possession- unless a dog counts as a belonging? Jury is out on that. Here are a few pics I took in Israel. I love noticing the patterns hidden in every day […]

An overnight confession and pear peanut butter protein smoothie

So this week has been a dichotomy of happy personal occasions (working on that post!) colored by precariousness in the peripheral world. At lunch over yellow lentil, onion and cilantro dosas, my girlfriend and I discussed our concerns as our babies rested unknowingly in their […]

Why we are gassy: Dysbiosis, prebiotics, and the slow fade of romance

Pomegranate seed oatmeal and a sweet new year

It’s fall! Even though D.C. feels like the end of July with degrees in the 90s, and my scarves remain sadly and securely tucked away, fall is officially here. I swear. Which means Rosh Hashanah- the Jewish new year- and Yom Kippur are as well, […]
