On Nutrition: Meal timing...does it matter?

Happy Monday! If you didn't see my latest On Nutrition column in Sunday's Seattle Times, "How often, and how many meals should you eat? Depends." check it out. I do so love busting nutrition myths.

I've had several people tell me that my column is hard to find on the Times website, to which I respond that it's hard to find anything on the Times website (sad but true), and it was especially hard to find this week because it got posted early (Thursday) and had disappeared by Sunday. Rest assured that I always post my column links here, and on my website. You can also search for my name on the Times website and everything I've ever written for them will pop up, although not in chronological order.

I'm keeping this brief, because I'm home sick with a cold and it's fuzzing my brain a bit. At least I'm not on the verge of coughing up a lung like my husband was last week. Ugh!

Links I like: 1.23.15

Happy Friday everyone! I had an unplanned absence on Wednesday due to a crazy schedule (lots of patients + 2 speaking engagements) and now my immune system appears to be giving up the fight against the crud my husband has been home sick with all week (darn it), so this is going to be a quick links post. It looks like my weekend has a lot of chicken soup and hot tea in store for me.


And finally, the Mediterranean diet pyramid, then and now:


Have a great weekend!

Infographic: Supplements vs. Whole Foods

Happy Monday! Once again, a finely crafted infographic is saving my blogging bacon. There was a good bit of last minute work getting my Healthy For (Your) Life online program launched this weekend, which, coupled with the extra-crazy week I have ahead of me, conspired against my blogging schedule. Fortunately I had this fun infographic from the Irish website Evoke my pocket. I do love that they used caviar as the reference for omega-3s!
