SLOW COOKER PUMPKIN GRANOLA

WHAT'S SUPP

"See what I did there? Ok FINE maybe that was super lame but I like it so I’m keeping that as my title anyway. I am often asked what supplements I take, and WHY.

DEFINE YOUR "HEALTHY"

“I’m not going to lie–up until a few years ago, I kind of sort of hated the term “healthy.” It felt so … blah. Like, vague and boring and like something your grandmother would care about.

SORRY, NOT SORRY: THINGS THAT DON'T REQUIRE AN APOLOGY

"It’s funny at face value that in my exhaustion I had apologized to a small, inanimate object, except that this kind of “I’m sorry” has become a way of life for so many of us. A blanket statement we use for taking up any kind of space, anywhere. This particular evening as I stood staring at the sock, whose presence I felt I had somehow disrupted, and that was clearly not staring back at me, I decided I had had enough." -Erin Brown
