Happy Friday! I have the house to myself this weekend (well, I’ll be sharing it with Dug the Golden Retriever), so I have great plans to do a lot of cooking and writing, with some reading and decluttering in thrown in for good measure. Stay tuned for more on the decluttering front on Wednesday, when I start my personal Pantry Challenge (a heads up in case you might like to do the same). On Monday, I’ll have a Q&A with one of my favorite dietitian podcasters, Julie Duffy Dillon. But first, some nutrition news for your weekend reading:
- Food as medicine it’s not just a fringe idea anymore.
- How to be mindful with your phone.
- Get your soup on with the New York Time’s fabulous “How to make soup” guide.
- A diet rich in fruits and vegetables outweighs the risk of pesticides.
- Charred, browned, blackened: The dark allure of burned food.
- Potatoes get a bad rap. They don’t deserve it.
- Large study supports ‘weekend warrior’ approach to lifetime fitness.
- How to make friends with food even when you hate your body.

- Also, I made this roasted carrot and red lentil ragout last week. It was easy and good! (I didn’t peel my carrots, fyi.
Have a great weekend!
