Happy Friday! I’m off to IFBC 2015 this evening, for fun, frivolity and networking with other food bloggers. I’m also working on my blog/website redesign (well, more like supervising my husband as he redesigns it), which I need to launch by the end of the month. Exciting times. Also exciting? Some of the links I uncovered this week:
- Why Americans are falling out of love with one of their favorite fruits. (Clue: statins.)
- Choosing the right grain for your morning. (Hint: it’s NOT cold cereal.) And…
- …5 must-try grains you might not know about yet. (I can totally see Ellie Krieger “making little clappy hands.”)
- Too much or too little sleep can lead to weight gain. (So, be like Goldilocks and get it juuuust right.)
- A diet rich in fruits and veggies could help ward off depression. Unfortunately…
- …Kids are eating way more fast food than you’d think — or hope. In happier news…
- …Goodbye, Snickers. Hello, cashews. Target ditches checkout aisle junk food. (Whoo-hoo!)
- Diabulimia: When diabetes meets an eating disorder. (I wrote about this topic in a 2013 post.)
- 6 things that happened when I stopped hating my body.
- You (yes you) can do a handstand in yoga class. (I included this link for my patients who are afraid to do yoga because they think doing a handstand is not just a requirement, but an impossible one.)
Speaking of my patients, it was one of my patients who inspired my latest On Nutrition column, “Perimeter of grocery stores no longer a safe haven,” after she complained that there was a cookie display in the produce section of her grocery store. (The column is live on The Seattle Times site, it will appear in the Sunday print edition.)
I’ll be tweeting, Facebooking and Instagraming about IFBC the next few days, and will have wrap-up posts Monday and Tuesday. Have a great weekend!
