Happy Friday! A very happy Friday for me, because I’m off to Paris tomorrow. It’s my fourth time, after decades of wondering if I would ever make it there. To me, cities are like people: when you meet one you like, you want to get to know it better. The nice thing about return trips is that you don’t have to do as much planning, because you already know the lay of the land and have checked a bunch of stuff off your “to see and do” list. A quick reminder that the spring issue of my e-magazine will land in inboxes on Monday, so if you aren’t on my email list already, you can sign up here. And now, some nutrition news for your weekend reading:
- Parents, are you on the same page about what your kids eat?
- The Environmental Working Group has released its Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 lists for 2017, which can help you prioritize which fruits and veggies to buy organic.
- What are the best snacks before bedtime?
- Gluten-free diets may be tied to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. (Another reason why you shouldn’t go gluten-free “just because,” and you should work with a registered dietitian to ensure a balanced diet if you do need to avoid gluten due to celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity.)
- 10 nutrition mistakes even really healthy people make.
- See Michelangelo’s illustrated grocery list.
And, my three most recent On Nutrition columns from The Seattle Times (and one article from The Washington Post):
- Hunger vs. thirst: Are you eating when you should be drinking?
- An organized pantry is magic, and here’s how to make it happen.
- Not all ‘processed foods’ are created equal: Which ones to avoid.
- Want a productive work day? Watch what you eat.
Oh yeah, and I was on KING 5 yesterday:
I think that’s about it. I’ll be posting Paris pix on Instagram, and I may do a blog post, we shall see. I’m hoping to shoot some video for a future project, too. Au revoir, for now!
