How does nutrition intersect with fertility?
Today I am SO happy to be sharing a review of a book that is very near and dear to me, not only because the topic is perfectly aligned with what I write about here on TBSD, but because I know the two women behind the book and I know they mean every last word they’ve written.
Did you grow up eating roasted pumpkin seeds on Halloween?
I’ve recently discovered that the best thing about Halloween once you have kids is getting to experience everything you enjoyed about the holiday as a kid yourself all over again.
