Happy Friday! Traffic is going to be a bit snarly this weekend, with President Obama’s visit and other local events, so I’m laying low. Working on my book, puttering in the garden…and getting a much needed massage. Oh, and sleep, precious sleep. Now here are the links:
- OK, this was amazing: My 5-year-old refused to eat the healthy dinner I cooked. Here’s why I let her. And on a related note…
- Parents should avoid comments on a child’s weight.
- Can you train yourself to need less sleep? (Hint: no.)
- If you peel your fruits and vegetables, you’re losing a lot of nutrition.
- Two words that will hold you back in life.
- How sleep helps you manage diabetes.
- How many calories we burn when we sit, stand or walk. (Hint: go for a walk.)
- Coffee may prevent against cancer (unless it’s too hot).
- Eat whole grains, live longer?
- The closest thing to a wonder drug? Try exercise.
- Does aged, black garlic work better than regular garlic? (OK, now I have to make my own black garlic!)
- And, my latest On Nutrition column in The Seattle Times: Fortified isn’t automatically better when it comes to food.
No kitchen remodel photos this week, since the work lately has been about drywalling and mudding the new doorways…important, but not too visually interesting. Next up, removing the old kitchen tile so we can finally haul a load of construction debris to the dump, then on to painting.
Have a good weekend!
