Molly Sims is showing refreshing honesty in her willingness to speak openly about her eating habits. The pregnant supermodel and actress said she has been embracing her sweet tooth and otherwise enjoying the freedom to not have to worry about her famous figure.

Model and actress Molly Sims has been doling out details about her pregnancy, sharing with fans baby bump photos, stories of sleepless nights and now some details about some third trimester sweet tooth cravings:

“Red velvet @sprinkles cupcake, a piece of Marzipan bundt cake, sorbet&cake batter froyo w/gram cracker,” she tweeted the other day.

Sims told People Magazine that she is loving the freedom of eating what she wants, and happy to stop worrying maintaining the super model figure. Four dessert in one day! the celeb headlines grasped.

To which we say, right on. It’s nice when celebrities pave the way for embracing the bod, whatever it’s doing, rather than fighting it.

Maybe, when Sims has her baby boy (no name yet, she says, although she and husband Scott Stuber have narrowed it down to 12 options) she will continue the trend of food honesty.

It could make a lot of other mothers feel better about themselves. (Ok, maybe just me.)

I can see it now:

“Macaroni&cheese off high chair; OJ from carton bc not enough time to get cup; covered in yogurt, applesauce not so bad with an @toddler spoon.”

We can only hope.

In the meantime, we’ll wait for more updates from Sims (we can’t help it), who says that she is “so excited to meet him and just hold his hand.”

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”
