Happy Friday! How much Halloween candy did you have yesterday? I had one tiny box of Milk Duds (contains: three Duds). It was a little bit of nostalgia. We laid low in our darkened house, watching “Django Unchained,” which was awesome, but too violent for some viewers. (It’s not fun having a stream of strangers knock on the door when you have an excitable golden retriever who thinks people only come to the house to see him!) Anyway, here are some tasty links from this week:
- Nice post from Elisa Zied, featuring Jessica Setnick, on 7 tips to reduce the risk of eating disorders in children.
- This is not a way to reduce the risk of eating disorders. (It’s not a way to promote a healthy weight, either.) Neither is this. Down with weight shaming!
- Testing the whole genome? Very exciting, especially because it will help illuminate why it is so hard to pin down exact links between diet and cancer. How food affects you can depend on your genetic makeup, for example, the link between red meat and colon cancer.
- It’s time to bring back the ritual of the family meal.
- Oh no! I can now learn to make Pok Pok’s Vietnamese Fish Sauce Wings at home? I don’t have to go to Portland. Dangerous…and divine!
I’ll be helping my niece celebrate her sixth birthday this weekend with a ladies lunch at American Girl. Don’t be jealous…and have your own great weekend!
