Happy weekend! Here’s a round up of some of the interesting food, health and wellness articles I’ve read this week. Have you found an interesting study? Send it my way!
Just eat real food and eat mindfully. This interesting study shows that the common denominator between a good quality low-fat and low-carb diet is having vegetables all day long, as much as you can eat, having a salad every day, no added sugar and as little refined flour as you can get. (The Washington Post)
Changing what you eat (and drink) can help you respond better to stress. (The New Potato)

I love the cooking tips in this article, especially around really thinking about how you salt your food – it is through an actual salt or through salted foods like anchovies, capers or olives? (Food 52)
More reason to be mindful about the amount of fish you’re eating. (NY Daily News)

This is a great recipe for fig season. (Bon Appetit)
