Clean Feed – The Nutro™ Way

I have been sharing my passion for CLEAN FOOD™ for as long as I can remember. It is not only the title of my first book, it is my approach to making healthy choices day in and day out. Everyone in my family is on board (especially if they want to eat!), and that includes my best friend and dog, Stöckli.



When The Nutro™ Brand asked me to partner with them to support their new philosophy on clean food for dogs and join their advisory board, I was honored. And now that I have spent the past several months getting to know this company that is dedicated to sourcing real ingredients, forming relationships with trustworthy partners, and developing non-GMO* dog food, I am more than impressed. I am a fan.

This clean food journey has been equally as much about teaching individuals to make healthy choices, as it has been about making clean food accessible and creating a food system that sustains the good health of ourselves and our environment.  Clean food has never been a prescribed diet, but rather about helping people to navigate the landscape of ever-changing messages about health and wellness, and make the choices that best serve their unique constitution. When a large company like Nutro dedicates themselves to this same value, it is a powerful impetus for change – one that I can definitely get behind. This is a company that’s putting heart into their choices, and empowering others to do the same.

I am proud to announce this partnership with Nutro™ and Mars Petcare, and grateful for a food that makes it easy for Stöckli to eat clean, too.

To all of my two and four-legged friends,

Eat Clean Live Well!

The Gift of Time

This was supposed to be about the heartwarming day I watched my daughter teach my niece how to make challah. But last week, as I was in my car listening to the radio, an old Jim Croce song came on that got me thinking. And when I sat down to write, I realized that some things are more important even than challah.

Every holiday, I try to think of what would make the perfect gift for each person on my list. Often there are homemade gifts (vanilla extract, mason jars of homemade granola, dehydrated herbs from my garden, and this year a bottle of dried astragalus root for my mom – shhh….). But as I think about the gifts I gave and received this past year, what I remember more than anything else is the time – the time shared gathered around the dining room table celebrating birthdays, the time in the kitchen kneading sourdough with friends, the cheering on the sidelines, the clapping in the audience, the hikes, the skiing, the laughter, and even the crying. Time is the gift that leaves the biggest imprint on my heart. Time is the gift I want to figure out how to package this year and give to everyone I love.

So thank you Jim Croce for reminding me. Because as a child, I knew all the lyrics and sang about time in a bottle without giving it another thought. But today, when I realized what I wanted to give to those I love this holiday season and always, I was reminded that I had been singing it all along.


If I could save time in a bottle

The first thing that I’d like to do

Is to save every day

‘Til eternity passes away

Just to spend them with you


If I could make days last forever

If words could make wishes come true

I’d save every day like a treasure and then,

Again, I would spend them with you



SPRING reunion with college friends; SUMMER backpacking with my family; FALL celebrating Sarah’s birthday; WINTER and first snow with Sydney.


These are among my most treasured gifts of 2016, and it’s the promise of more time shared and more memories created in the year ahead that I already cherish.


If I had a box just for wishes

And dreams that had never come true

The box would be empty

Except for the memory

Of how they were answered by you.


With thanks to all for helping to make clean food memories together.
