{MM} The prescription for good health + fave links



While I’m not trying to get Tyndale to smile & coo (his latest trick! it’s adorable), I’m desperately trying to get my house clean (it always takes me about 3-4 months post-baby to get there!), I’ve stumbled upon some good stuff to share with you.

♥ I love the contrast between the picture of the stacks of whole foods versus the rows of processed. Also, Rebecca makes a good point–changing the font size of the calories on the nutrition label isn’t addressing the bigger issue.

♥ Design Mom talks about depression. Happens to the best of us.

♥ a round-up of beautiful, delicious salads

♥ Meg gets all fired up & points out the sometimes-hypocrisy in women. Listen up, ya’ll: Stop B*&#%ing About Kim Novak & Goldie Hawn.

Recently watched: Tess of the D’urbervilles (BBC’s 2008 production) on Amazon prime, though this wasn’t the first time. I don’t know what is wrong with me, but I find this tragically depressing story beautiful, poetic. (It really is classically tragic, so don’t watch if you’re in a dour mood.) And I love it. I have so much empathy for Tess, & loathing for most of the men in her life. What does that say about me? I don’t know.

♥ Thanks to everyone who has purchased my newly launched Fit, Strong, Lean: The Diet ebook! I hope to have the companion, F,S,L: The Fitness Plan ebook ready for you by the end of the week. I’ve been working on these, as well as several other recipe ebooks since last fall & I hope to release others throughout this spring, as I have them ready for you. It’s exciting for me to already be getting positive feedback from many of you who have purchased the F,S,L: The Diet ebook. If you don’t have a copy, you can buy one here.

    There are 2 things I heard this week I want to pass along. First off Food Babe-a woman who has dedicated her life and work to changing our food system and eating whole foods-wrote an article on PB2. You might find it interesting. I think a simple google search will find you the article easily. Secondly since you mention cleaning I just bought a bunch of e-cloth products. A product proven to clean with only water! And clean more thoroughly then sprays and traditional cloths. Very affordable when you realize how much you’ll be saving not buying sprays and paper towels. Amazon sells them. If you’re so inclined check them out!

    Happy (now) Tuesday!

      Oh no! Not another food I need to avoid :). I’ll have to check it out, thanks for letting me know.

      What’s the brand of e-cloths? For the past few years I use nothing but vinegar & water for most of my cleaning, especially in the kitchen, but I will definitely look into these!

      Thanks for the suggestions, April, & happy Tuesday to you too.

        The brand is e-cloth. They sell many different kinds of cloths and cleaning products. I, too, almost exclusively use vinegar to clean. I think, for me, these cloths will make cleaning easier as I only have to get them wet and will also be able to replace my bathroom chemicals-which are about the only chemicals we still have. My children do a lot of wiping down for their chores so these are great b/c they can actually *clean* w/ them but only use water-no more sprays or chemical wipes to clean.

    Thanks for sharing such great links! I agree with Rebecca that the changes to nutritional labels only address a very small part of the issue. I do think that ‘added sugar’ is a great change, because illustrates that whole foods (such as fruit or fruit juices) are so much better for you than processed foods with a million things added and taken away – even if the amount of total sugar of both products is the same at the end.

    Those roasted cauliflower / chickpea tacos look amaaaazing, might have to make them this week.

    Have a great start to your week Janae!
