Happy Friday! 2017 is going by freakishly fast and it’s freaking me out! Time to slow down and smell the coffee. I want to do more yoga, so maybe this weekend is a good time to jump start that as a mellow counterpoint to the weekend hustle and bustle. That and taking some time to read (I’m so glad I’ve fallen back into reading more fiction). Speaking of reading, here’s some nutrition news for your weekend reading (plus some links that are less about nutrition, more about self-care):
- Why one food executive is pledging $25 million to fight his own industry.
- One part of the Obama White House that will endure under Trump: Michelle’s vegetable garden.
- Researchers find clues to why the Mediterranean diet is tied to to lower heart disease risk.
- 10 steps to becoming more self-aware.
- Identifying what’s negotiable in our lives and what really isn’t.
- I didn’t particularly like this title, but the tips are good: 10 easy ways to slash calories.
- In case you’re thinking about starting a vegetable garden this year: You don’t need a large plot to grow a bounty of vegetables and herbs.
- The new essentials of French cooking? I’m so doing this! Starting this weekend!
- And, my latest On Nutrition column in The Seattle Times: “‘You still eat bread?’ How to get the food police off your back.” (As I say to my patients frequently, I’m your dietitian and even I’m not the food police!)
Have a good weekend!
