Photo: My daughters first meal ever as a chef and its salad! Cucumbers, ripe small tomatoes, carrots. She peeled, cut, and combined with pinch of sea salt, dash of olive oil and balsamic. She said, “mom, this is sooo delicious”. The most effective way to have children learn how to eat healthy food is by immersion – allowing them to make their food. It is also important to set the example, limit their choices and bring only healthy ingredients into the house. As hard as it may feel for some families, limit restaurant eating. I say “feel” because making healthy food in a hurry is in actuality relatively simple #vegetablesbecomethemain #healthyeatingeducation

Photo: Love. Between these girls. I hope to teach them to be forces for good in the world. With all that is going on in US politics, and this country which seems so out of place with the United States I know, was raised in, and love, it is important to teach the next generation how to be thoughtful, kind, empathetic, just, and gentle. #politics #future #love

Photo: Voila…homemade baby purée of organic avocado, raspberries, apples, and plums. I like to add fat either in form of ghee or avocado to purées as baby requires fat and digestion of fruits and vegetables easier with fats combined. I will freeze several ounces in glass jars  to save time. #foodlover #baby #cooking #healthyeating

Photo: Having kids has made me rethink the point of our time on Earth – it’s incredibly short; with not a moment to spare on idleness, petty thinking, selfishness, ego-feeding, accumulating things, and not giving everything your 110%. Childhood helps us see this in the moment by moment pure joy that beholds them – The experiences these kids so gleefully appreciate. “When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive- to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” Marcus Aurelius. #living #love #instagood #kids
