You Don’t Have to Cook to Snack Organic

As I sit here munching on my not-oreo Organic Tasty Sandwich Cookies, it occurs to me that many people don’t eat organic because it’s too much work. Well let me tell you, I’m With You Sister! (or brother, you too!) I remember a time, a long long time ago, when cooking was a wonderful and […]

Be The Weird Family on Your Block

Believe it or not, Isaiah and I were laying in bed the other night when we had this conversation. “Mom, we’re never going to make a difference” “Of course we will my love.” “But mom, we’re the only people I know who even care about GMO’s and eat organic.” “That’s not true baby, we know […]

I Was Against GMO’s Before it Was Cool

Hey! I have an AWESOME idea! Take that broccoli you were going to feed your kids tonight and soak it in RoundUp– let it sit for 30 days. Now rinse it off, you know, like you would if you were getting ready to cook it and feed it to your child. What? No? You don’t […]

On the outside I’m a hippie freakshow, on the inside…About Jen Kehl

Living Outside the Box You may think I’m a contradiction. I listen to the Grateful Dead, I buy only organic when I can, I vote conservative. I don’t wear makeup, I buy expensive shampoo, I owned a Bugaboo and I buy most of my clothes at Target. I read my bible everyday, old and new […]

So I did a really bad thing. I taught my son something I can’t seem to undo. I taught him China doesn’t care about us. The thing is, and sorry if I am about to offend anyone, I really believe big corporate China doesn’t give a rats arse about us and I’m pretty sure I […]

And what about mad cow?

So one of the many things that make people think I’m crazy is my very strong belief in Mad Cow and my staunch refusal to eat beef from a questionable source.  If I don’t know that its organic or grain fed, I’m not eating it, and neither is my son.  Not to sound callous, but […]

So You Want Your Kids to Smell Purty part 1

As I sit here researching my next post on kids and chemical exposure I just can’t help but feel a little overwhelmed.  The shear wealth of information out there on the damage so many chemicals do to us, and our children is mind-boggling.  But what’s even worse is the extent to which we, as Americans, […]

Did Plastic give your kid ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, Allergies, etc?

Everyone wants to know why.  Why was my kid born with sensory stuff.  Why is my kid allergic to every food on the planet. Why does my kid have ADD, horrible eczema, hyperactivity?  Why, why, why?  I’m not a doctor, and I’m only a research scientist in my own mind.  But I’ve got a hypothesis […]
