Happy Friday! So far, January has felt like Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. First there was jet lag mixed with The Cold That Would Not Die (an unpleasant cocktail, to be sure), tons of writing deadlines, more travel last weekend, ongoing work on my book, and some other shenanigans. Thankfully, some measure of calm (calm being a relative term) will descend this weekend, and I can tend to a few things that have been slightly neglected, like this blog. I have a fresh post planned for Monday, and on Wednesday you can look forward to a guest post on “Eating Mindfully with Mealtime Rituals.” In the meantime, here’s some nutrition news for your weekend reading pleasure:
- Eat peppers, live longer?
- If you take dietary supplements for colds or flu, maybe you should reconsider.
- Taking picky eating to the extreme.
- ‘Clean eating’ is a fuzzy term—and that’s why it works.
- Why medical advice seems to change so frequently.
- A lesser-known yoga style focused on internal health is gaining popularity in the U.S.
- And, my latest On Nutrition column in The Seattle Times, “Is a cup of tea good for you?“
- Have a good weekend!
