“You can't give children what you don't have yourself. No matter how much importance you place on it."
-Brené Brown, best-selling author and vulnerability researcher

Whether we like it or not, we are role models for our children. They will follow what we do, not necessa...

Did you know that wildlife researchers have discovered feminized male fish in lakes and rivers around the world?

Yes, female egg cells have been found growing inside the testes of smallmouth and largemouth bass.

There are some species of fish that are normally hemaphrodi...

If you want to be in good health, you need to cook...at least some of your meals...at least some of the time. Unless, of course, you can pay for a personal chef (that’s also trained in nutrition!).

Here’s why:

1. Eating out

When you eat out, you literally have NO IDEA wha...

Nicole Daedone, author of Slow Sex, describes what she refers to as the Western Woman’s Mantra: “I eat too much, I work too much, I give too much, and yet there is still this hunger that I cannot feed.”

I used to believe that… but I’m not sure I buy that story anymore. For children, for pregnant women and...

As women, we generally don’t ask for support enough. We tend to take it all on...all the time. And we feel guilty when we can’t do every...last...thing. Screw that.

Do you remember the "Milk. It does a body good." commercials of the 1980's? Or the more recent "Got milk?" ads? Both of these ad campaigns are absolutely brilliant...and remarkably effective. They really captured the hearts and minds of Americans.
