PPD, PTSD and Antenatal Depression: Nutrition and Research…What Helps?


Postpartum depression, antenatal depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder related to birth are multi-faceted, complicated illnesses that can be caused by a number of different things. While some experts propose that these things have physical causes, others report psychological factors as the main cause. And others, like myself (although I would not consider myself an expert), believe it could be a little of each. Either way, all of us agree that the effects of these conditions are detrimental and should be […]

Girl Scout Cookies–HFFG Style!


I’ll never forget the look on the poor girl’s face (and her mom’s!) when we said we don’t eat sugar and respectfully declined her Girl Scout cookies. And I didn’t even get to the part about them containing the even more dangerous trans fats! We’re not much for even natural sweets around here (give me a big bowl of air-popped organic popcorn with coconut oil and Himalayan sea salt instead!), but I got a little inspired (thanks Allie!) to make […]

Instead, I’ll just offer HFFG’s Master List of Healthy, Whole Food Snacks! Hard-boiled eggs (sprinkle w/ paprika and/or salt for fun and extra flavor) Veggie Trays (We make one at the beginning of the week […]

Baby Food 101–What & When To Feed Baby


Baby Food 101–What To Feed Baby and When Introducing solid foods to baby is a momentous occasion.  Even down to my fifth baby, we had the video camera rolling for their first taste of “real” food. But do we understand the implications of that first bite?  Baby’s first food can leave a lifelong imprint on their food preferences.  And if we start foods, especially certain ones too soon, it can have immediate as well as long-term consequences on their health.So […]

A Sugar-Free Albeit Delicious Easter!


Easter’s Coming–And you don’t need sugar for it to be delicious! Could there be a better time of year to be free of addictions?  I dare say that an Easter without sugar addiction is an Easter that focuses more on the willpower and strength it took Christ to do what He did for us.  Every bone and emotion in His body was telling Him that His suffering was too much to bear.  I mean He physically sweat blood just hours […]

Delicious Breakfasts for the No-Sugar Challenge


Delicious Breakfasts for Our Challengers! Hmmm, breakfast.  What to do for this 30-day no-refined-sugar challenge?  There’s lots you can do!  The most simple is: oatmeal.  And it doesn’t have to be just plain ol’ oatmeal.  In addition to adding honey, pure maple syrup, and/or molasses, you can puree up fresh, ripe pears (oooo, this was one of our faves), or add diced apples.  Or how about adding fresh berries?  Chopped dates?  Or my kids’ favorite: chopped prunes.  I know–prunes get a bad […]

Beets For Breakfast? Pink Pancakes!


Yes, we eat beets for breakfast once in a while.  But not like you think.  I have to admit–beets just don’t taste that great.  Some people like them, but I’d bet those are the same people who like the taste of liver.  I wanted to try and find a way to incorporate them into our diet once in a while.  Then, about a year ago, I came across a recipe for beet pancakes.  But it was actually called “pink pancakes.”  […]
