About me

Occupation mom, wife, nurse, Functional Foodie
Location IA, United States
Introduction I have a passion for the "Food is Fuel" movement (will it ever catch on?) and live to honor things that are real in this world - Jesus, acai berries, nigella seeds, jalapenos, pomegranate season, green tea (a different kind every day if possible, loose leaf only, please), and the smell of a freshly opened can of tennis balls. 11:11 rules my life. Some day I want to either be a caller on "Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me," a guest in the audience at Chase Auditorium, or hit the mother lode - Carl Kasell's voice on my home answering machine.
Interests Exercise (love to take long walks, hitting the bike trail, and try to forget how much I miss playing tennis), shopping at BIG grocery stores, cooking (NOT baking), my backyard pond with all it's fishies, walking labyrinths, tweeting about food, reading my Bible
Favorite Movies Chick flicks, Patch Adams, Forrest Gump, Mr. Holland's Opus, Driving Miss Daisy, Fried Green Tomatoes. And my "imaginary friends" cana no longer make fun of me because I finally watched Princess Bride.

That can't really be a fish you're standing on, can it?

Yeah, and I'm doing it just for the halibut.
