I’m off to Boston today (stormy Seattle weather permitting) for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetic’s annual Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE). I didn’t have a links post last week because I couldn’t find enough links that I was actually excited about. That is not the case this week, as you can see her with this lovely roundup of nutrition news:
- My On Nutrition article from last weekend (in case you missed it): From vegan to omnivore, the power of a plant-forward diet.
- And, from one of my favorite dietitians (and my editor at Environmental Nutrition), Sharon Palmer, tips for trying out a plant-based diet with a two-week vegetarian challenge.
- A flowchart to figure out if that random web recipe will work.
- Men get osteoporosis, too.
- Why is fish good for you? Because it replaces meat?
- Why Perdue is the biggest user of baby wipes (hint, it’s not routinely using antibiotics for its chickens anymore).
- And…Tyson Foods, a meat leader, invests in protein alternatives.
- PepsiCo is being sued over its Naked Juice marketing.
- Can regular meals help combat jet lag?
- How to be mindful at a stoplight.
- When do you worry about a picky eater?
- Finally, my latest article in The Washington Post, in the digital version: Sure, ‘eat the rainbow,’ but don’t pass over these paler foods. And here’s a little snapshot of what it looked like in full layout in yesterday’s print edition (pretty, isn’t it?):
Have a fabulous weekend, and if you live in Western Washington, I hope your power doesn’t go out during the big storm on Saturday!
