Smoothie Sailing into the Day

Friday, January 20, 2012

WNYC

I love eating. I mean, like, cutting and spearing and chewing and swallowing. Eating's pleasurable, especially in the company of others.  

So it took some convincing to get me to try smoothies in the morning.  A liquid meal doesn't seem like a lot of fun.

Why We Fight: Cancer

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

I can't say with any certainty that doing detoxes, avoiding processed, chemically-laden food, going vegetarian, or vegan, or raw, or organic, is going to keep me cancer-free. But I do know that these actions make me feel powerful and give me some sense of control.

The Mental Detox: Art at the Met

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

If there's one thing I've learned since completing my 21-day detox program a week ago, it's that one's mind can become as bloated and overweight and sluggish as one's body.  And so I took my mind (and the body it's attached to) to the Metropolitan Museum of Art this morning.

WNYC

I've kicked the sugar habit for the past 24 days now, as part of a detox that was supposed to last just 21 days. I'm feeling light on my feet and healthy, I've lost seven pounds, my skin and eyes are super clear ... so, why stop? One possible reason: chocolate.

I am on Day 20 of my 21-Day detox under the Clean Program.  I'm almost done, but I feel like I'm just starting. I realize I haven't allowed myself to learn about why I eat when I eat.

Amy Eddings' Food for Thought: Blender Wars

Monday, June 20, 2011

For the next 21 days, juice will be my breakfast and dinner. It's part of a detox program called Clean that I've taken a shine to. It's given me an excuse to buy a juicer -- it's on its way -- and a new blender for the soups and smoothies I'll be making.
