Happy Friday! Do you have any exciting plans this weekend? My weekend will be filled with cooking and writing (and house cleaning and laundry). I’m also leading a group walk with some of my patients, so that will be fun. I picked up two DVDs from the library to watch, too: “Whiplash” (which I’ve seen four times already but I don’t care because I’ll never get enough of “Not my tempo!”) and “50 Shades of Grey” (because it’s a pop-culture phenom and it’s set in Seattle and I have to have something bad to watch while I’m folding laundry). One Oscar-caliber, one decidedly not. It’s all about balance!

FYI that I have an On Nutrition column in this Sunday’s Seattle Times, on the FDA’s trans-fat ban, and why what comes after trans-fats may not be a lot better. You’ll be able to find it on my Times author page.
