Dr. Kim Foster

Author Profile: 

Kim Foster, MD, is a family doctor, writer and mom. She is passionate about healthy living and preventive health. That passion notably includes chocolate. And Pinot Noir.

As a mother, Dr. Kim knows how hard it is to make healthy choices…when ordering takeout is just so damn easy. She is dedicated to helping moms find that sweet spot between positive lifestyle habits and the little indulgences that make life pleasurable.

Dr. Kim knows that not everything works for everybody. And don’t stress over “perfect”. Balance is a nice ideal but, really, only critical when crossing a room in four-inch heels.

About my kids: 
I have two boys: a nine year old and a three year old. Our house, most of the time, looks like a LEGO pipe bomb went off in it.
Parenting is...: 
An incredible journey. Also the most insanely time-pressured and challenging job I have ever experienced (and that includes being a medical resident).
We know you don't have a lot, but when you do, what do you like to do in your spare time?: 
I write novels. I'm not sure I'd consider 5 am to 7 am "free time" exactly, but there it is. My first book was published in 2013, and my second comes out in June 2014.
When are you at your yummiest?: 
After doing yoga. Relaxed, happy, and all bendy.
What superhero power would you like to have?: 
Same one my 9 year old son wants: time travel.
If we gave you an elephant, where would you hide it?: 
What makes you think I don't already have an elephant?
Do you have a blog or website? :
