12 days left till Christmas! Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? I’m just finishing mine off, with only a few more to buy. Here are a few ideas if you’re stuck. What are you up to for Christmas? We’re staying in the UK this year and I’m looking forward to lots of lovely food, family time and relaxation. It’s the one time of the year when things really shut down and it’s almost mandatory to relax a little bit.
Have you heard about the new Michael Pollan documentary, based on his classic book, In Defense of Food? The trailer looks great. (Well + Good)

How to eat organic on a budget. I’d add ‘shop just before closing time’ to this list. You can get some incredible bargains on organic food that is nearing or just past its use by date. (Food Matters)

Serial is back! (Serial Podcast)
There’s a growing and highly disturbing trend to give very young children (as young as 18 months!) anti-psychotic medication. (New York Times)
