Whole Food Detox a la Vlog

So a loooooooong time ago I said I would start vlogging, then I didn’t. Ack!

So it’s a New Year and I’m a new me! A vlogging me :-) For now anyway.

I can hardly write anything because my caffeine withdrawal headache is so hideous.

Also I wish I had turned off autofocus, but again, headache.

I have to go.


There should be a cute vide here. If not refresh and like magic it will appear!

The End of Detox – Whole Food Living

My 14 day Whole Food Detox ended on Sunday. I had a latte, drank some wine, and ate some chips and salsa! It was lovely.

I had a day or two off, but now it seems I’m back to eating most of the same foods I had been eating for the past two weeks on the detox. I had quinoa with cilantro, lime and avocado for dinner because I can’t get enough of it.

My very basic takeaways from the past two weeks are eat whole foods, be kind to you body, and don’t eat crap. Pretty simple really. And now I think it’s going to become a very big part of the way we eat and live.

Here’s the vlog…

Why we are a CSA kinda family.

We missed the signup for the CSA last year and we were pretty bummed. So when the email came in…I was ON IT! Basically I bought all of our vegetables that we’ll be eating this summer in January. Bizarro, right?

I had my doubts about a CSA at first. It felt slighty elitist is a strange way. Well, not so strange because it’s not cheap. Also, our CSA is located in a very wealthy town. “Going off to Weston to pick up our expensive organic vegetables that someone picked just for us dahling. Ta ta!” is how it felt, at first.

Then the vegetables came in to the house and it was overwhelming. Some I’d never heard of. Others I was sure I didn’t like. I had to wash it all. I had to put it away and organize it so it wouldn’t go to waste. It took some doing.

But then some weird things started happening. My daughter started to ask “When are we going to the farm, mama?” My oldest son would ask “What week will the ‘zipper peas’ be ready to pick?”.  My youngest son, who was always napping the first year would whine “Why don’t IIIIIIIIIIIIII get to go the faaaaaaaaarm?”

They wanted to go. They wanted to pick. They want to play in the fields. They wanted to talk about the farm and the vegetables and the flowers and the animals. So much of what our kids learn doesn’t come from a lesson at school, but experiences outside the classroom. Shared experiences with siblings about weird vegetables and honey bees. Lessons from mom about how she learned to pick cucumbers from Papa when she was little.


My Dad was an organic farmer way before Whole Foods was around. We would eat the beans right off the plant when were kids. That garden was our playground. It wasn’t huge mind you, but the yield was enough for all of us and some of the neighbors. I can’t recreate that in the postage stamp of a yard I have now, but I can take them to a farm every week.

Then, more weird things. All those vegetables that at first I was like “Aw, hell no!” Well now they have a place at our table all summer. I figured it out! The farm helps with tastings at pick up. Those tasting helped the kids to like both cabbage and radishes.

Here’s the thing about a CSA to all those who would say “you can just by those vegetables at the grocery store you know.” Yes, I know.

But I wouldn’t. I really wouldn’t. And neither would you if you’re honest. Would you really walk in to the grocery store and say “Hey – I think I’ll buy some Tatsoi today.” No, no you wouldn’t.

Also I did the math, it works out to be about the same as buying it at the market. But you get so. much. more. Because of my experiences with the Four Hour Body and a Whole Food Detox, we have been trying to eat a more whole food diet in our house. And then there’s pesticides, and Monsanto, and being able to eat LOCAL. A CSA just makes sense, for us.

Now we have not one, but two, spaces planted in our tiny yard. One for vegetables and one for flowers. We may not get anything to put on the table out of them, but the kids couldn’t be happier tending to them. My son won’t eat chicken nuggets, but he will eat cole slaw. So there’s that too.

My youngest finally gets to go the the faaaaaaaaaarm this year. I can’t wait to see what his siblings show him and what he discovers there!

The Newton Kitchen Tour will be the end of me – and a GIVEAWAY

In case you’ve been wondering where I am, no I didn’t fade away into nothing from my cleanse, nor did my boy give me a nervous breakdown.

I haven’t been vlogging or blogging because I’ve been busy. Now you all KNOW how much I hate that. But it’s the truth. I have made some choices about how to spend my time over the past few weeks, and it hasn’t been here or there. Pretty much nothing but my kids, and this THING that has taken over my life, has gotten any of my attention.

This thing is the Newton Kitchen Tour. My kids’ elementary school needs a new playground. My husband and I sat around the dinner table one night and said you know what would be a good fundraising idea…


Now we’re in it.

The Newton Kitchen Tour is a self guided tour around our fair city to see some amazing kitchens. Big and small. Modern and traditional. There will be something for everyone. Also food. Also architects there to answer any of your burning questions. And me, I’ll be there. I’ll be the one climbing up and down the walls, wiping down counters, talking on a cell phone, with a panicked smile on my face. :-)

You can buy tickets here and also at both the Newton Whole Foods Markets. They are $25 in advance and $35 the day of the tour.

So if you love me and want to see me back here and on Youtube, and not just doing this there…

you’ll share this post and the Newton Kitchen Tour website and Facebook page. And this giveaway!

Who wants a 2 tickets to the Newton Kitchen Tour?? Obvs you have to be local to Boston. I’ll give away 2 sets! So TWO winners :-)
