Stories I loved this week.
I’ve had a little hiatus from the blog. Things were getting on top of me and I needed to stop, have a breather and take stock. It’s important to do that once in a while, don’t you think?
We’ve also been on holiday to Mallorca (one of my favourite places on earth!) and although I came back with a cold, I feel mentally rested and ready to start my final year of my Nutrition degree (this weekend!).
Could you be a fruitarian? I personally couldn’t, but it’s interesting to get a peek into how they rationalise their choice. (Broadly)
How much do celebrities spend on fitness? (Well + Good)
How the sugar industry shifted the blame to fat. (NY Times)
Ketchup chips – any good Canuck will love these. (AV Club)
Great exercise rule – try not to skip two days in a row. (Summer Tomato)
I’ve just bought this cookbook and I’m really enjoying working my way through it. The chickpea pancakes on page 92 are great.
