It seems that everything you read wants you to start eating organic greens, chia juice and free-range chicken. Unless I wake up tomorrow winning the lottery, that is just not realistic for my family. Now, I might spend $3 on a fancy chocolate bar every now and then, but I really try to stick to... continue reading

In Kindergarten, kids learn to identify one coin from another. But it’s much harder learning the value of those coins. Of course, the quarter is the holy grail of the piggy bank (or the couch cushion), but what can you really buy with a quarter? A glass of milk, that’s what! A glass of bone-building calcium.... continue reading

I love summer – spending time with my kids going swimming, bike riding, traveling, and hearing about how much fun they have at camp while not stressing about homework.

I love a juicy hamburger with melted cheese, mushrooms, and a little bit of mayo. It’s delicious. As a registered dietitian, I also want to make sure and feed my family lots of veggies. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010[http://www.dairymax.org/healthy-living/health-wellness/dietary-guidelines-and-myplate/] encourages a diet rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and low fat or fat free dairy.... continue reading

You’ve heard this one before. Perhaps, you’ve even said it. “Low-fat milk is watered-down milk.” The whole truth is, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Milk is highly regulated and there is a “standard of identity” of milk, meaning *cows’ milk cannot include added water and still be called milk. * Let’s look at the... continue reading

Farmers certainly have to be an innovative bunch of folks. My dad used to say my grandfather’s entire farm was held together with “baling wire and bubble gum”…meaning Granddaddy didn’t take a lot of time to make repairs. After all these years in agriculture and living on a farm myself, I can understand how basic... continue reading

I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for cows and calves. There’s just something about those big doe-eyed girls that warms my heart. I recently took a group of young mothers on a dairy tour and learned firsthand I’m not the only one who can be brought to tears watching the birth of calf and the... continue reading

I go to book club with neighborhood ladies. I love it: It’s a potluck, the ladies are all my mom’s age, and I get to hear the latest on what’s happening at the neighborhood golf club. Downside is, at 4 p.m. on these Tuesdays, I remember I need to bring something. I need to... continue reading

MILK. It’s a four-letter word so many people know, grew up with and still enjoy today. But these days “milk” has a few meanings; do you really know what’s in your four-letter word? Or do the grocery store promotions, newscasts and your favorite TV doctor have you a bit confused? When most of us think of... continue reading

Creativity is something we are supposed to nourish as a parent, right? Sometimes I feel that my daughter is really here to nourish my own creativity. The breakfast requests I have received from her this week are: hay, birthday cheese and cinnamon sprinkles. Keep in mind she is 2…so who knows what birthday cheese is.... continue reading
