Happy Friday! The sun is shining and spring is just around the corner, which means all is well in my world. Just as I have multiple articles in progress at any given time (writing), lately I’ve had several books in progress (reading…for now).
One is Gretchen Rubin’s Better Than Before, which is awesome. If you would like your life to run better through good habits, than this book is for you. The other is Jo Robinson’s Eating on the Wild Side, which I had meant to read since it came out a few years ago, but just got around to. I have already learned so much! For example, iceberg lettuce is nutritionally void (oh, wait, I already knew that one), and that the more pungent the onion, the higher the antioxidants (I used that to reframe my misery when I was chopping some shallots the other day and tears were streaming down my face, “Think of all the antioxidants,” I wept). Good stuff…and so are these links:
- Eating right: when willpower just isn’t enough (my newest Seattle Times column)
- Chew on this: How slicing meat helped shape modern humans
- The water diet
- A good health reason to avoid ultraprocessed foods
- BMI is a terrible measure of health
I hope you all have a good weekend, and here’s something that might make it even better: the next offering of my Healthy For (Your) Life 8-week online program starts Monday, April 4th, and for this weekend only I am offering a special deal on tuition. Instead of $149, you’ll pay only $99. Visit the program page for more details and to register!
