Happy Friday…and happy last day of summer. In case you’re curious, fall officially begins tomorrow at 1:44 p.m. Pacific Time, which will be right smack dab in the middle of a friend’s wedding reception. Jeff and I had planned to spend Sunday restoring order to the jungle that is our vegetable garden (ripping out our overgrown, overblown tomato and squash plants, et al), but since the weather forecast is unfortunately quoting a high of 57 with rain, I may be reorganizing my closets, instead…and making stew.
- What goes up, must come down, and it seems that (some people’s) favorite superfood, quinoa, is facing a backlash. Silly, if you ask me. Quinoa is super nutritious, but if you don’t like it, just don’t eat it…and if you do like it, don’t make people who don’t feel stupid about it!
- In New York, some doctors are writing prescriptions for fresh fruits and vegetables (let food be thy medicine). Awesome!
- Can we be disease-proof? David Katz says we can.
- Another nail in the coffin of the long-held “calories in, calories out” notion, along with a nice little thumbnail sketch of why physical activity is important for health even when you take body weight out of the equation.
- Trying to eat more vegetables? Consider going vegan for a day.
Have a great weekend, and a great kickoff to the fall season!
