Connecting The Dots

February 6, 2012

What’s with the orange juice? The cereal? The mac n cheese?

clip_image002 clip_image004

In fact, why is there cheese in every meal I eat?

clip_image005

There was popcorn and gelato for lunch one day. Multiple bagels with cream cheese.

clip_image006

And perhaps most obvious: where are all the vegetables?!

clip_image007

Why have some of my posts seemed so aloof they elicit a round of comment complaints?

clip_image008

Why did I claim sickness for a few days?

Why am I obsessed with an appliance that makes breakfast for me?

clip_image009

Why are my jeans so TIGHT!?

clip_image010

Why does my stomach still turn when I think about this lentil soup?

clip_image011

And why is there beer all around me but not a drop to drink?

……………because the bread menu is going to change late this summer. A new loaf is rising.

Surprise!?

Congrats Kath & Matt! I almost made a comment recently after reading one of your posts about the possibility of you being pregnant. How exciting! Hope you will continue to blog frequently and share as much as you are comfortable sharing. I have a 5 and a 6 year old and I loved being pregnant and being a mom. Hope you are feeling well, congratulations again!

Reply

11 Katie February 6, 2012 at 8:32 am

I had to look back and it was the posts around January 10 that I remember thinking that you had a pregnant glow in the picture of you at your friends’ house for dinner. You also posted about not feeling well and ordering pizza because their was nothing in the house that sounded good. Thanks for giving us subtle hints, I look forward to reading you blog first every morning!

Reply

12 KathEats February 6, 2012 at 8:36 am

You are the second person to comment on my glow – that is so strange!! It must really exist!

Reply

13 Katie February 6, 2012 at 8:43 am

All the hormonal changes, some good some not so good, but definitely all worth it for such a wonderful, amazing, precious little one. There are days that I wouldn’t mind being pregnant again and adding another child to our happly little family, but I think we are done. Have you decided if you are going to find out the gender?

Reply

14 KathEats February 6, 2012 at 9:10 am

Yes, definitely

Reply

15 Katie February 6, 2012 at 9:32 am

Sorry for all of the comments, I’m just so excited for you! We didn’t find out the gender with our first (a girl) but when we became pregnant (by choice) when she was only 3 months old, we decided we would find out. Although my husband didn’t want to tell anybody the gender so we kept it a secret until he was born. My friend just revealed that they are having a girl with pink cream filled cupcakes at the shower.

16 Carolyn @ AdMEYERingLife February 6, 2012 at 9:41 am

Enjoy the glow! I’m 12 weeks and the only thing glowing on me are all the pimples. Thank you, hormones. LOL Congratulations and look forward to following your journey.

Aw, so sweet from your mom, you guys seem like such a close family, you must be so excited!

Kath I left what I thought was a thoughtful compliment comment recently and was surprised to see a huge spike in the traffic of my tiny little blog. It was from a very negative sight and I was shocked at the harsh criticism of people! I thought your more private posts may have stemmed from that and I’m thrilled for you that there is such a more joyous reason! A thousand congratulations to you both:)

Congratulations-I have not commented previously, but I enjoy your blog-the look, the fun, the food. I hadn’t noticed all of the negative comments about your previous post–and the fact that you re-linked to them demonstrates your integrity. You seem like a stand-up person to me-that comes across in your writing and I appreciate it.

Reply

28 KathEats February 6, 2012 at 8:35 am

Reply

29 Lynda February 6, 2012 at 9:26 am

I agree also! I couldn’t believe all the negative comments. I think it’s great that you post so often when other bloggers don’t even update on a daily basis. I always learn something from your postings. You’re right in telling people if they want something different to go find another blog!

Reply

30 Shannon February 6, 2012 at 10:03 am

I agree! I could not BELIEVE that people would say those things. They should just stop reading your blog – no need for a nasty comment! I love reading your blog on a daily basis and am thankful that you are able to do this as your job – it benefits so many people! :)

Reply

31 Jenny February 6, 2012 at 11:05 am

Same here! Your blog was the first I ever started following faithfully, and I still look forward to your posts and pictures every day! I love the recipe ideas and slices of your life, but most of all, I appreciate your positive, common-sense perspective. It’s so easy to over-analyze and criticize our bodies, our choices, or whatever it is that we get down on ourselves about, but you do a great job of focusing on enjoying life and living it right! Always an encouragement. Keep doing what you’re doing!

And congrats on your pregnancy!!! You and Matt are going to be such awesome parents! Enjoy every minute.

Reply

32 Jen February 6, 2012 at 9:13 am

I agree with Denise. One thing that does come across in your posts is your love for what you do. You recognize you have a great job and appreciate it and don’t take it for granted.

SO HAPPY FOR THE BOTH OF YOU!! (and totally creative way to announce it!)

Reply

34 Mel February 6, 2012 at 12:27 pm

I just read some of the negative comments you linked to and I am shocked at how cruel some people are! yeah, sometimes I get bored reading about oatmeal or whatever a blogger ate, but if I wanted to I could skip that post or skim through it. No one makes people read each post or your blog. I for one love it! I did notice the lack of veggies and knew something was up! Sometimes veggies make me gag too and I’m not pregnant! haha. Keep up the great work- You and matt will be amazing parents.

Reply

35 Courtney@Translating Nutrition February 6, 2012 at 12:30 pm

Completely agree with you Denise! I had missed all the negative comments before, and they frankly shocked me. People can be really nasty behind the anonymity that their computer provides. I would love to see them try to say those things to your face. Keep up the great blog, I love reading it!

36 Maria @ Sinfully Nutritious February 6, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Also, I just read through some of the nasty comments people read and I am sorry to see how rude people can be. Honestly, I have enjoyed reading your blog from the beginning and still enjoy reading it today, despite the gradual changes to the content style. I too read it mostly because I think you have an interesting life, I enjoy reading about the bakery (since one of my dreams used to be owning a bakery…took a hospitality management/business class and that changed real quick, hahaha), and I am planning on doing a dietetic internship in the near future so I love to see what projects you use your RD for. I think it is good you referred those people to new blogs…honestly, a lot of the HLB are boring or full of posts made by uneducated individuals who visited wikipedia and copy/pasted various things. I’d rather wait every few days/weeks for a legit post from you than read 15 poorly executed HLBs :)

Kath, I found your blog when I posted on fb about Great Harvest openIng here in cville. You see, I had a newborn at the time and rarely got out! Just stumbled on GH when I was getting out from cabin fever! I’ve been a reader ever since. I love to read blogs to pass the time as I watch my baby play. I’ve always wondered what would happen to KERF if you got preggo and were stuck at home like i was! Lol. Whatever you decide to do, just know that your readers will understand (and some will not). Parenting is the most important thing we can do, and your life really does a 180. Regardless, Bambino has great parents. And I, for one, wouldn’t be upset if your blog turned from food to parenting woes! Blessings!

But of course! We live by Riverside park, and it’s a great paved path for strollers. You’ll have to research which stroller(s) you want. It can be overwhelming. Heard of the “Baby Bargains” book? Amazon it RIGHT now.

Your diet looks so nutritious, despite what is probably a wonky appetite. As for comment complaints, not sure how you got them, your posts are always so full and look like you’ve spent a lot of time on them. Anyways, congratulations!

210 Dad & PePaw February 6, 2012 at 9:19 am

VERY EXCITING KATH & KANZ — like I didn’t know already ;) Still the public announcement makes it seem ever more real. Now my main worry is the name: no naming the baby like you name your breads, especially given how you’ve chosen to introduce your “new loaf rising”. No “Rosemary Garlic Younger-Monson” or “Pesto Parmesan Swirl Y-M” or even “Popeye Raison-eye Y-M”. I’m OK with “Dakota Savannah Y-M”, I guess.

Kath, Congratulations! I appreciated your link back to some reader complaints. I usually only skim the comments, and am mostly surprised by how many you respond to! I don’t care to participate in the specifics of the dialogue regarding the content of your blog. However, I have to say that reading those comments stirred up one of my biggest pet peeves about people, myself included. Why do we waste so much time and effort criticizing things that are so far removed from us. We all seem so concerned that everyone, bloggers, politicians, athletes, celebrities, and on and on behave as we wish. Why get so personal about people we only know impersonally? If you don’t like a blog, don’t read it. If you don’t like a restaurant, don’t eat at it. If you don’t like a book, put it down. Basically, change your own behavior and don’t expect everyone to change for you. This is something I work on everyday.

Best of luck on this next chapter in your life!

I have been reading your blog for years, but I hardly ever comment. Your blog was actually the first blog I ever read!I have seriously been waiting for this to happen! Haha. I’m so excited for you! I read Emily’s blog too, and whenever I read it, I think, “I can’t wait until I get to read about this stuff on Kath’s blog too!” I hope that doesn’t sound creepy. I just can’t wait until the day I become a mother and I LOVE reading about other peoples’ journeys. Also, I just read some of the horrible comments that people wrote on that other post, and i’m sorry for how that must have made you feel. I love your blog and I enjoy looking at it every day. Don’t change a thing! I enjoy your blog for so many reasons. I have learned so much from you and I even got a Shark to clean my floors because your review was so good. Your posts on budgets changed my life! Keep it coming. There are so many more readers out there that support you and you don’t even know they are there…like me:)

Dear Kath, I am a loyal reader but a rare commenter b/c of a young baby who takes most of my attention :) A friend of mine texted me today and said “go read your blogs” and I immediately thought – Kath is pregnant! Weird, I felt like a crazy person…I looked and – low and behold – congratulations (mazal tov as I would say, lol). Having recently given birth to a baby boy – I can assure you – the best is yet to come. I had a sense from your posts you were pregnant as your food choices had small hints of what I was eating during my 1st trimester,too. Of course I am dying for more info (moms stick together and support eachother – it is amazing) and want to know when you’re due (how many weeks) and of course how you’re feeling. If you’ve been feeling queasy – all of my nausea left at week 15 and I was able to eat normally (after weeks and months of no veggies). My husband is a pediatrician and we both agree my first part of pregnancy diet of chicken soup and cereal with ICE cold milk did not have an impact on the baby (for what we can tell) – as it was a major departure from my normal eating! I really am (despite not knowing you) so excited for you and know you’ll make a wonderful, creative and loving mom. Can’t wait to watch your pregnancy develop. Many best wishes…and be sure to enjoy this time. It is all up from here! Just wait…and that baby of yours is gonna be gorgeous! As for all of the negativity, I hope people will lay off you now…typically I find that people are very kind to those who are (at least visably) pregnant and with young babies. Bake away! In both senses…XX

Congrats!

I really hope this doesn’t turn into a Mommy Blog. I stopped reading Daily Garnish and Healthy Tipping Point because I could care less about seeing pictures of stomachs and what size fruit or vegetable the baby is (soooo boring.)

Second, I have to say that as someone who hopes to someday have a plant-based pregnancy, I’m disappointed by the lack of vegetables and increase of cheese and junk food. Maybe that’s just a first trimester thing? I would hope that you can show readers how to eat healthfully while pregnant!

Finally I hope this is viewed more as ‘unsolicited feedback’ about what a reader wants to see and less as a negative comment. (If I find KERF doesn’t suit me, I’ll find another blog to read, don’t worry.)

Reply

370 OntarioGirl February 6, 2012 at 11:27 am

It bothers me that you say you’re “disappointed” in her lack of vegetables. I, too, wanted to make sure I ate lots of veggies when I got pregnant but you don’t realize until you ARE pregnant how unappetizing the thought of veggies can be, especially in the first trimester. When it literally turns your stomach to think about eating a vegetable, I’d like to see you stick to your “plant based” diet. Getting ANY nutrients for the baby is better than eating nothing so you learn to eat what sounds good.

Also, Daily Garnish and Healthy Tipping Point BOTH still write about things other than their pregnancies/babies. Did you think all of these mid-twenties, married women bloggers were NEVER going to have kids…or if they did they were NEVER going to talk about it on a blog based on their life? I think it’s the natural cycle of life and would be strange if they didn’t.

Just my 2 cents…I hope Kath shares every detail of her pregnancy along with her food because the majority of noters on this post seem VERY interested in hearing about it!

Reply

371 Jill in Chicago February 6, 2012 at 11:36 am

I didn’t say that I never expected them to not have children. My point is that if I want to read a pregnancy or baby-related blog, I would go seek one out. The content and photos just doesn’t interest me as much anymore. (I read healthy living blogs to be inspired to eat better myself, and often it is difficult to be inspired when someone eats ice cream for dinner, for example. That’s just me and my priorities.)

Also I’ll keep you posted on the success of my diet when/if I’m pregnant in the next 5 years :)

Reply

372 OntarioGirl February 6, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Ok I kind of see your point but I think the weird food posts (ie..ice cream for dinner and less veggies) will be a temporary thing. I personally like the different dimensions a baby adds to all of these bloggers’ blogs but I guess that’s why we all have different opinions..I think it would be hard for a baby NOT to change the content of the blog in some way because it is such a huge life changing event.
I guarantee you if/when you get pregnant, in the first few weeks you will choose a box of kraft dinner over a salad! Wait and see :)

Reply

373 Courtney February 6, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Unfortunately, I stopped reading Daily Garnish as well after she had her baby. I enjoyed the posts leading up to the birth (very informative for me because I do not have children) but afterwards I found it wasn’t something I wanted to read about on her blog or on twitter.

I am eager for Kath and Matt though! Congrats you two!

375 KathEats February 6, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Geez Jill. I was going to ask too – have you ever been pregnant? I definitely did not stop eating vegetables by choice – broccoli would literally make me throw it back up. Considering I didn’t want to look at lettuce for weeks, I’ve been pretty proud of the veggies that I have gotten down mixed into things.

Reply

376 Kori February 6, 2012 at 2:17 pm

For the first time in several years, I got sick while in Costa Rica with my family last summer. It did not last long, BUT I actually could hardly stomach pecans (which I adore!), and cucumber made me sick just looking at it. I craved simple carbohydrates and protein, such as egg and cheese. Whenever I would was sick to my stomach as a child, my mom always gave me saltines and toast. My point here is that when we are ill either from the flu or from pregnancy, our intricate body’s do in some ways know what is needed at that time. I’m not saying for us to be completely intuitive and disregard certain foods, but if you are having a difficult time eating vegetables, that’s no problem at all!! You have an entire pregnancy to eat plenty of vegetables. :) Also, I am currently in my second semester of grad school for my M.S. in Public Health Nutrition, and we discussed in my Maternal and Child Health class that the primary energy for a growing fetus is straight glucose, which I know as an R.D. you are likely well-aware of that. :) Congratulations again!! I support you 100% if you choose to weave your first-time pregnancy experience in this blog, similar to what Emily chose to do. I find it fascinating, and I love your blog!!

Reply

377 Jo February 6, 2012 at 1:30 pm

@Jill — I echo the others’ replies on this point. If you’re having nausea in the first trimester, bland food is all you can stomach. I ate lots of toast with butter, saltines, roast potatoes. During this time, your plant-based goal is pretty hard to reach, as any pregnant woman can tell you.

Reply

378 Jessica February 6, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Ugh! How you would expect people NOT to take this as a negative comment when you start by bashing other pregnant bloggers? Heaven forbid someone be excited and want to post about her growing baby, whether by comparing it to a fruit or vegetable or just through photos.

I also *love* when people who have never been pregnant complain about what pregnant people eat. Believe me, everyone has really high hopes about eating well, and then they actually experience the nausea and food aversions. Some days, a cheese sandwich is all you feel like eating.

Perhaps next time you want to offer “unsolicited feedback” you’ll think about your tone. You just sound kind of crabby.

Reply

379 JessicaE February 6, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Jill, this is an extremely ignorant comment. Have you ever been pregnant?? You have No Idea what morning sickness is like… I couldn’t stomach a single vegetable except for potatoes, raw or cooked. And I am a huge vege eater and a very healthy eater. You have no choice when you have morning sickness but to listen to your body and eat whatever it will allow you to eat. Forcing yourself to eat things you can’t stomach only cause worse nausea, vomiting, dehydration and not getting ANY food/nutrients to your baby.

I should feel bad because at times the only things I could stomach in the first 8 weeks were plain tortillas, tortilla chips, dry cereal, occasional fruit and *GASP* plain hamburgers from Burger King? Screw that. I did the best I could with how horrible I felt. Come back here and comment when you know what the heck you are talking about.

Sorry so long and so angry, but with an eating disorder in the past I DID have issues with the things I had to eat in the first trimester just to get things in me… and even now with how much I must eat. New moms have enough guilt and worry without uneducated people like you judging them. I got over the guilt… don’t speak of what you don’t understand, Jill, you just made yourself look terribly ignorant, and quite foolish. :(

Jill… For the last two years, I have been eating extrememly healthily, lost over 100 lbs, and exercised daily. I worked hard and loved my new lifestyle. When we finally got pregnant, I had all of the same preconceived notions that you did about eating a mainly plant based diet. However, those plans mean nothing when morning sickness and terrible food aversions kick in. My first trimester, vegetables make me nauseous. I even tried forcing myself to eat them (salads, steamed, juiced, etc…), and all that caused was vomiting. I craved fruits and grains, but couldn’t handle yogurt, vegetables, or much meat. I am so excited to follow Kath on her journey. Shame on anyone who finds this as the time to criticize her food choices.

Everyone, I am truly sorry, and realize I should not comment on something I have not experienced myself. As I explained to Kath, this morning I finished a class in plant-based nutrition and was feeling quite empowered (too big for my britches) in wanting everyone else to eat the same way. I like Kath, I like KERF and I’m sure I will continue to ‘see’ you all around.

Congratulations! I’ve been wondering ever since Emily Malone got pregnant and had Cullen if you and Matt would soon follow. Not that you base your decisions after someone else’s major life decisions. Only that I put both you and Emily in the same category…THE BEST category. I thought you and Matt were as ready as they were. You two are going to be AWESOME parents. I think you both will be wonderful examples to your little one. Congrats again, and I cannot wait to read more about your newest adventure.

Congrats, Kath! I was thinking this announcement would be coming sometime soon… What amazing news! I am nearing my 3rd trimester and I totally understand the lack of veggies in those first few weeks. I had no taste for my favorites like salad and broccoli but tried to force them down anyway. For some reason, it was easier for me to eat something that someone else prepared. Anything that I cooked was totally unappealing, especially when it was green!

I’m 12 weeks pregnant! Due August 22nd with our first and it’s such an exciting time. Excited to follow along on your journey as well. My taste buds have been pretty much the same…carbs, cheese, orange juice and NO veggies…slowly starting to want veggies and other things again finally :)

397 Kelsey February 6, 2012 at 10:59 am

Congratulations! And I, too, am AMAZED that some people have enough time on their hands to leave frothy rants in your comment section. If the blog was already a waste of their time, why would they put more time into writing a paragraph long DOTM session?

I pretty rarely comment, let alone read them… and find it’s so unfortunate to see that kind of negativity. Your blog might not be for everyone, all the time, forever… but even when its had its slow points for me, I always come back to learn something new, get back on track with real food (I had a fire cheetos episode back there awhile ago) and gather new house-cleaning tricks. Love it.

They need to remember this is somewhat your job, but you do not get weekends or holidays off! (you could it just seems you do not take them!!)

Congratulations on your pregnancy, but I am a little confused by why pregnancy would make your posts more “aloof” (strange choice of words on your part, because the criticism was about the lack of interesting content, not your voice). Millions, if not billions of women have been pregnant and have managed to continue performing their jobs to their maximal potential. Pregnancy is not a disability and should not affect your ability to write decent blog content.

Reply

443 KathEats February 6, 2012 at 12:34 pm

If I worked a regular job, I would have called in sick that day. When you can’t lift your head off the pillow, consuming, photographing and writing about food is the last thing you want to do. Luckily the worst days passed and I was able to get back to normal.

Reply

444 Kimberly February 6, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Does that mean that you didn’t really eat all of those oatmeal bowls? Do you save a bowl in the fridge to take a pic of on the mornings when you’re feeling sick or do you reuse a pic of a previous oatmeal bowl? It must be hard to have your job being taking pictures of the food that you eat when you’re too nauseous to really eat!

Congrats to you and Matt!

Reply

445 MelanieF February 6, 2012 at 12:52 pm

It’s important to remember that not ALL pregnant women have the same symptoms and are ALL going to be super-happy and not sick or tired everyday. I have never been pregnant, but all my friends have kids and some of them had the worst pregnancies and some had the best. It all depends. You can never know, until you get pregnant.

Reply

446 Jessica February 6, 2012 at 2:06 pm

@Mizzy, I would defy you to find one person who has performed her job to her maximum potential for the entirety of her pregnancy. Pregnancy may not technically be considered a disability, but believe me, there are days when you’re unable to do much other than the most basic life tasks.

Reply

447 Melissa February 6, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Honestly, I never missed a day of work when I was pregnant with my eldest child. I met all of my commercial mortgage goals and increased clientele for the company – that means lots of dragging my head off the pillow, sitting in board meetings and business lunches. With my younger two children, I had to continue making their meals and changing poopy, stinky diapers when I felt ready to vomit everywhere. I remember literally crawling across the floor to play with my crawling baby. I don’t know how I did it, but I did it. You can be pregnant, feel like shit and still excel. Some days, you drag yourself out of bed and just do it.

Reply

448 Jessica February 7, 2012 at 12:09 am

Well, maybe feeling horrible takes a greater toll on some than on others. Of course, everyone has different priorities, and caring for kids and going to work certainly are important ones. But I guess what I’m saying is that crawling across the floor after your baby probably wasn’t your top form, and that’s fine. You did what you had to do, but you weren’t at your absolute best, which is fine, but it’s only fair to have the same expectations of others. The post in question wasn’t Kath’s best, and I’m sure she’d admit it…it’s her equivalent of crawling across the floor after a baby.

I just think it’s a little silly to assume that we can just “power through” any and every part of a difficult situation. Rather, maybe we can, but maybe we shouldn’t. Being gentle with ourselves is probably most important during pregnancy and postpartum.

Reply

449 Sydney February 7, 2012 at 2:01 am

This isn’t finals week, it’s a baby! This reminds me of people in school bragging about who got the least amount of sleep the night before a test. And then one day you realize that the winner is actually the person who got the most sleep! Know what I mean? It sounds ur trying to compete over who can have the crappiest time :-/ Sacrifice is not inspiring, it’s just a little sad.. hopefully kath’s experience is really interesting and dynamic! And if she wants to rest and be lazy, more power to her. I hope you have more time to relax now! :-)

I read the complaints from a previous post and was surprised people were dragging out their issue with content. Some people need to find better things to do. I will warn you to be careful what you blame on pregnancy. If you feel well enough to go to body pump or for a run, you can probably write an interesting morning post.

Wow! I am SOEXCITEDFORYOU! My little Sedona just turned nine months and since then I have really tapered off my reading of your blog. I stop in here and there, but I luckily came in TODAY! I went back and saw the shit storm that came your way and I just have to say that personally I am so grateful for your blog and for what you do. I am sure you are constantly getting criticized and the opinions from your readers can be draining, but you truly do an amazing job blogging. I started reading probably two years back. You really showed me a lifestyle that I long for, a way of eating that just MAKES SENSE and a passion for food that challenged the way I look at my routine. I am still such a work in progress, but I love knowing that when I have time and need inspiration I can come here. I hope that you continue on your blogging journey, and I really look forward to the changes that motherhood brings for you and the blog. It may make it easier for me to relate because now I am a mommy too! Thanks so much for all that you do. Your passion for healthy eating is something we all need to catch hold of and what you offer to your readers helps to transform lives for the better. Remember this! =) CONGRATS!

Congratulations!! You seem like you will be a wonderful mother and Matt a wonderful father. I can’t wait for the day I get to have a child.

BTW, when you were watching LOST recently, the Numbers episode when Locke builds the cradle must have made you a little teary-eyed.

Hi Kath,
I love your blog. Congrats to you and Matt.
I have a quick story about hiding pregnancy. My sister’s brother and sister in law found out they were pregnant 5 months before Christmas. The husband wanted to tell all of his family via the family DVD that he makes for each year. To help hide the pregancy, he and a friend drank a bunch of her favorite beer and then refilled the bottles with soda. She kept drinking at all of the family functions and holidays until the big reveal. At the end of the DVD, they showed outtakes of the guys drinking all of the necessary beer. It was great! They even got their mom on camera finding out about the pregnancy to help start off the next DVD.

Congratulations to you and Matt!!

When I was in my first trimester, I ate so much Chicken Parmesan that I was sure my son’s head would be shaped like a cutlet, but fortunately it was not. Once I got through the first three months, I was able to get on a really healthy regmine and felt fantastic throughout the pregnancy, as I am sure you will as well!! Just listen to your body and your cravings (within reason, of course) and definitely continue to get some exercise.

So happy for you.

Congrats! I didn’t notice the change in your eating habits, I just figured you were eating seasonally. I have two kids and had vastly different diets w/ each. You eat what you can when you can. This is one of the best times to indulge, if you want ice cream for dinner then go for it!
I can’t wait to see how great you’ll do at adding baby and food things together. I love to read the blog. It’s well done. I often find that there is a line in the sand so to speak that seperates those w/ kids and those w/o. Some people can relax the line and some can’t, sigh, but that’s life, right?

The best advice I ever got, was you will know your baby best and so if you find some advice that you don’t like, just remember it’s your kiddo and you know best.
It must be so nice to talk about it openly w/ all your blogging fans!
Congrats again!

I hadn’t read the comments on the post you linked to “blended and frothed” until today and I was completely and utterly shocked by the things people wrote on there. There were so many side conversations that seemed to assume you would never read them, they were so harsh and heartless and I don’t believe that anyone would actually say those things to you if they were with you in person. They all seemed to be readers for quite some time yet had almost no regard for your feelings at all. I am so sorry that you had to deal with all that, especially considering that you were holding such a wonderful and exciting secret through it all. You have had a lot going on these last few years and have kept up entertaining us through all of it and the people who truly care about you and your style of blogging will not be going anywhere. I feel like a big difference in your blog is that we get to see your personality a lot and we can really make a connection with you and feel like we are your friend. And I’m sorry but I’m not going to say “hey I don’t want to be your friend anymore because you aren’t helping me lose weight”.

Sorry for the long comment just wanted to let you know that I completely respect everything you do and admire your strength in handling the negative comments. I’m so excited for you and Matt, you will be great parents!

I can NOT get over the negative commenters, both in the earlier posts you linked back to, and even in this post! If you don’t like what your reading, don’t read it. Simple!

Congratulations, Kath and Matt. I have been reading your blog since 2008. I am currently pregnant with my first child as well, 16 weeks along. :) Its been quite the journey so far and its only going to get better/crazier. Its insane how much your body and mood changes… I have been saying to people, “The baby is in charge of my body now, I just live here.” :)

I was extremely lucky to only have morning sickness up to about nine weeks, and my eating/appetite got pretty normal after that. I hope you are feeling okay and am very interested in what symptoms you are having and how far along you are.

So excited to share this journey with you. Such a life changer. :)

Congratulations! When are you due? I’m due in September myself. It makes me feel a lot better to see you defending your produce aversions above. Before I got pregnant I swore I’d eat the same as always throughout my pregnancy, not gain an ounce more than I have to, etc etc etc but then Week 8 rolled around and I realized that I wasn’t so much in charge anymore.

As a fellow blogger I got a bit of satisfaction reading how extra-rude everyone looked from a few weeks ago demanding to know why your posts didn’t deliver the satisfaction they so sorely deserve :)

Congratulations! I’m at 29 weeks and have loved being pregnant. Bagels & cream cheese, cereal, fruit & cheese were huge 1st trimester staples for me. I’m a vegetarian who loves veggies & I HATED veggies for the first few months. I was so shocked. Enjoy this amazing time.

Ah! Oh my gosh Oh my gosh Oh my gosh!!! The thought has crossed my mind, but I knew you would share these news and there was no need for being nosey! Haha. I can’t tell you just how overjoyed I am for you and Matt! I read your post while sitting in lecture (bad student! great KERF fan!) and I started smiling with the greatest glee! Children are the most precious gift, and you will make wonderful and loving parents. I’m so happy for you!

The negative comments were completely ridiculous, I never saw them until this post, and I was in shock! If you want to make a post that doesn’t have any words, just a pretty picture, fine! Its your blog, your journal, your life, and you can do as you please. I love simple posts, they remind us in the reader world that you’re human, and life is not 60mph every second. Sometimes its a quite bowl of oatmeal.

So congratulations again, enjoy every minute of it!!!

I read your blog like a magazine. Sometimes, I like a lot of info. and sometimes I like just pictures. Anyway, enough about that. Like the others have already said, I loved how you shared your big news. I was getting excited for you as I read, too. Congrats! So exciting.

I was just about to post a very similar response! I agree with Melissa 100%. There are so many of us who truly, genuinely LOVE your blog and your style works for us.
I read every. single. one. of. your. posts.
You have a perfect mix of stunning and scrumptious photography, healthy recipes, and daily examples of how to follow a happy and clean lifestyle – be it at home, at work, or out with friends!
Do these commenters really have nothing better to do than to leave mean comments?!?! Pfff. That’s just too silly.

Yea, it doesn’t sound very appetizing. Well, it’s nice to know we wouldn’t be seeing any placenta recipes. :) Speaking of recipes, have you thought about making your own baby food? I wouldn’t have even considered it, but someone gave me a small food grinder at my baby shower, and I fell in love with it. It’s also very easy to make baby food in the blender or food processor. Here’s where I got my information: http://wholesomebabyfood.momtastic.com/

Also, placenta encapsulation is a really great way of getting some nutrients back and warding off postpartum depression without having to actually eat the thing (supplements seem much more benign!). http://placentabenefits.info/

Sorry, I had to come back after reading through those negative posts. I’m a fairly long time reader and eat a paleo diet so really, I don’t come here for the food. You seem like a lovely person and I enjoy the time I spend on your blog, daily. You’re a gifted young woman and personally I wouldn’t want a thing to change about your blog. To say there’s a lot of competition for Healthy Living blogs is rubbish, there’s very few quality blogs out there that I want to spend my time on and yours is number one on that list.

You have a certain amount of routine & lots of balance, and I have used that as inspiration to achieve the same in my often chaotic life. I love knowing how you approach life, food, etc. I applaud you for a job well done & thank you for giving so much of yourself, even when others view it as too little.

I’ve often wondered how certain things will change when a baby comes. I will be interested to follow along. Those curtains that cover your closet doors can’t keep a baby out. :) I’m also looking forward to Home Neat Home nursery addition.

Truthfully, I figured the posts were shorter because you are understandably busy blogging, writing, exercising, socializing, and running a business. Then I thought all the carbs were just a phase!

Ha, Ha I was wondering if you were pregnant. I got pregnant in October and starting mid-Nov I had to break from you blog. I couldn’t handle the cusine, tons of veggies…and usually the vibrancy all the veggies offer excites me. But I could not do a ton of veggies for awhile. Mid-Jan I was able to return and seemed to notice some of your menu changes and wondered!!?? Congratulations!!!! This is my fourth and I started feeling better around month three, (bye bye food aversions and bad aftertastes (like pb, teas and mint for me).

LONG time reader… I actually discovered you blog during late night feeding sessions with my (then) newborn (he tooks AGES to drink his milk!) I found you and HEAB and ended up going right back to the beginning of each of your blogs and reading right up to present day!

Now my little baby has turned into a walking (kinda) talking dude, and it’s YOUR turn! Very exciting, you will LOVE it, being a Mum is the most amazing thing – it’s amazing what we women can do, growing a baby is an incredible experience.

Congratulations to you and Matt :)

Congratulations!

My first 10 weeks were tough. As a mom who experienced the worst morning sickness and exhaustion to the point that I had to pull over in a shopping center parking lot to sleep because I was so tired I could not make the drive home, my heart goes out to you. Some people are lucky and they don’t experience awful morning sickness and total exhaustion during their first trimester. Others have never been pregnant. I’m sure there will be a few heroic women who will tell you they were so tough that they kicked morning sickness in the ass. Whatever. You’re entitled to sleep a little more, eat the same thing 3 meals a day, 7 days per week if it doesn’t make you hurl. Take care of you.

CONGRATULATIONS! I am so happy for you. As a mom to a soon to be 4yr old Ava Grace (birthday is on Feb 28), I am welcoming you to the “club”, so to speak. I am wishing you a joyous, safe and uneventful pregnancy and birth and look forward to the evolution of the blog as you post about what you are going through.

On a side note…I don’t really read other people’s posts but was curious after you posted the link above. It made me really sad to read what others wrote. I very rarely comment and instead look at your blog as a entertaining diversion sprinkled into my day-nothing more, nothing less. Please keep up the good work and ignore the naysayers.

The marscarpone is slightly sweet and whipped and melts into the bagel. Oh my, even better than cream cheese and my fav. breakfast food right now along with oj. Blessings!!

I’m so sorry for all the negative comments from link. I guess it tells you how emotionally invested people can get in your life — online! I admit to feeling a bit left out since so many of my healthy living blogs have started families and content has changed, but at the same time I’m thrilled for all of you and the growth of your families. I’m just at a little different point in my life so I’ll read your mom’s blog ,and look for some other healthy living blogs geared for us older readers :)

Congrats again, and do what you need to do to enjoy this very special time in your life.

Hey Kath,

I have been reading your blog for almost a year now(its the first thing I do when I get to work). I wanted to just say how happy I am for you. I had to say something because I have been so excited for you since I found out yesterday morning about your big news! Thank you for letting us share in your excitement. Also thank you for helping me develop a healthier lifestyle. Since I started reading this blog I have oatmeal every morning with some sort of nut butter in it, I’m addicted(I expect an intervention from my family any day now on my nut butter addiction). I hope everything goes really smooth for you in these next few months and cant wait to hear more about your bun in the oven and oatmeal of course.

I’m coming to this post a bit late, I realize… First, CONGRATULATIONS! What happy, exciting news. :) :) :) What a wonderful new chapter you have ahead of you.

Second, I’d just like to say, (not to harp on the one remotely negative link in this post, but I feel it needs to be said), those folks are just crabby and crazy! In this humble gal’s opinion: Pregnant or not, nauseous or not – your posts were not and never have been “aloof”. Don’t let those naysayers bring you down. I thoroughly enjoy your blog – always have! I don’t need you to give me the calorie count or nutrition content of every meal, nor do I need you to elaborate on the origin of every morsel. There is a rhythm to all things, including blogs, and each post does not have to be an essay. Short and sweet is sometimes the order of the day. Keep up the good work! I appreciate you and your blog. You make my daily journey to be good to myself more fun! :)

Hi Kath,

I actually stopped reading your blog a few weeks back because it did seem that it had moved away from the things I have enjoyed about it for the past three years. But I always come back to blogs I’ve loved hoping they’re back to what I’ve loved about them. So glad I did come back. And so sorry you had to endure so many negative comments. Not sure why people feel you owe them anything. If anything, we owe you for all the great information, great recipe ideas, etc. I’ve learned a lot through your blog. So, thank you!
And on that note, I will also say I had been wondering if you might start a family soon. As a mother of two kids, there were so many things – buying the new house, being within walking distance of the store, you cutting back on work at the bakery (even though I know that’s not your main focus or main job), the vacation, etc. It makes complete sense and I’m not surprised. I’m just really happy for you two and I look forward to reading your blog as you go through your pregnancy. I’m sure it will be insightful. So, congratulations!! Take care!

Reply

778 Tami February 25, 2012 at 11:25 pm

Reply

779 Amanda March 2, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Congratulations on the big news! I just went back and read some of those awful comments people left on your blog. I was SHOCKED. I have a personal blog about my life (food, photography, etc) that I do for fun and I have good blog days and bad blog days. Sometimes I’m busy and don’t blog for a week and sometimes my content just sucks because I have nothing exciting going on that day. Regardless of whether or not you are getting paid for your blog, it is so impressive that you post multiple times a day, keep people interested and have kept such a successful blog for so long while living such a busy life! I don’t know how I would feel if people said negative things about my content, but I am very impressed with the way you handled it. From the comments I read you were tactful and respectful, which is much more than I can say for the readers leaving those comments. Your blog is amazing – It’s creative, informative, fun, lighthearted and so enjoyable (not to mention you’re a great photographer!) I don’t visit every day, but when I do I am always happy with what I see/read. If I wasn’t, I would find a blog I was happy with. I just can’t believe we are in a society where people put someone down because the content of their blog doesn’t meet their standards, when they could just not read it. They seem to think they are “helping you out” but it seems to me like they are just looking for something to complain about and someone to put down. I know you are a strong, confident woman and you know you are making people happy while helping them live healthy lifestyles, but as a human being it is difficult to let that stuff roll off your back without letting it affect you. So, I thought it couldn’t hurt for you to hear that those people are crazy and don’t know what they’re talking about :) Congrats on a new baby, a wonderful blog, and what I’m sure will be another wonderful blog about the new adventure. It takes a lot of courage to put your life out in the world for everyone to see and scrutinize and you’ve done such a great job so far!
