Meg grew up in Connecticut and when she wasn’t busy pretending to be a mom, she was in the kitchen learning family recipes. She won over her husband, Alan, whom she met her freshman year at Stanford, with some very fancy homecooked meals. After working in finance and strategy for Gap and NBC-Universal, Meg returned to Stanford where she earned her MBA. Now with three kids of her own (Avery, 5; Brooks, 4 and Ryder 1), Meg’s husband doesn’t see too many of those fancy meals. But her kids eat very well! She believes good food is all it takes to make a friend, and she is grateful for all the friends she has made through her videos.

  1. I dont get why people think that getting "enough" protein should be their first priority concern. First of all the needed protein for an average woman is less than 50 g a day. So not that much at all. which means that if you eat an abundant diet you dont have to worry about your protein at all. You dont even need to eat meat, fish, dairy or eggs at all. veggies like kale, spinach and broccoli as well as grains are a great source of protein (and those are just some quick examples as ALL fruit and veggies contain protein).
    But much more important for the human body is to get enough fibre dense food which fruit an veggie do supply in great amounts!
    So throw out all this yoghurt, meat and fish and just get some fresh produce, whole wheat pasta and rice in :)

  2. Wet your hands with some olive oil instead of water before rolling the meatballs. Your hands might feel weird, but it will give the meatballs a bit of extra crisp and golden color, and prevents them from sticking!

  3. Breastfeeding pioneer 1973. Glad to see breastfeeding "normal." In my day, I had to sit in solitary confinement for 3 1/2 years each son. Called names like piggish, nasty, crazy, old-fashioned. We know breastmilk only perfect food for humans. 7 years was average time human females nursed. I belonged to a group called La Leche but was really too ashamed to nurse in front of others. My counselor warned me before I went to have baby in hospital they would discourage me. Doctors only read 1 paragraph on nursing. The other 10 years on baby formula: sugar followed by 22 drugs.

    When I went to the hospital, they left me engorged. They didn't know what to do. When I finally asked for my baby, the nurse brought me a black baby and I'm white. The nurse brought coupons and samples (since I grew up in South Chicago starving and freezing family of 15, I'm surprised I resisted.

    When I went to the doctor when baby was 5 1/2 months, doctor threw me out of office for still nursing. He literally screamed me out and I shed buckets of tears over my healthy 5 1/2 month old baby. I think being a pioneer sometimes scars both mother and baby, but it had to be done.

    I knew if I ever had another baby I would have it at home. 6 years later I had son #2 at home, midwife, doctor, and spiritual healers for prayers. One on call the other holding my hand. I had a 10 pound baby. The government sent an agent and she was mean and told me they don't like home deliveries. I saw Mama have one at home so it helped although it was difficult with back labor. My husband and son were there also.

    When the government agent came she rated son from one to ten in 3 categories besides the 10 pounds. Ten being highest. He was rated 10-10-10! Perfect. But I believe we are perfect to begin with and just get a lot of programming to convince us of our illnesses.

    But even Mama nursed, worked full time like Rosie the Riveter World War II, took care of Daddy, found time to have sex, took care of Grandpa for 10 years, helped bring money by cleaning rich homes and taking care of their kids, and also found time to contact politicians and write letters about what was wrong and right about this country.

    I also wrote 40,000 pages of my autobiography, rants, and how I helped change history. I feel so much better women are finally getting "rights." And also for our children. We have a lot of time to make up for damage done to our country's people, but certainly this is a right step. Love the veggies added for I pioneered organic gardening 1970 with my Vietnam Veteran Purple Heart Hall of Honor. He came back in terrible condition but with me seeking alternative medicines he benefited. The Veteran's Hospital said he would have been dead within a year if he hadn't met me. But coming from a starving family, just him providing a decent roof over my head (I worked too) and 3 meals a day was my Messiah, Savior, King, Master. Much love! I'm having these for lunch with homemade cranberry sauce with walnuts (ran out of orange sections or mandarin oranges bits) and spaghetti squash with butter, garlic, onion, parsley.
