This week’s nibbles

appalachian_trail_signThis week’s links are coming to you a day early since I will be away Fri-Monday (so new post on Tuesday) Lucky me, I’ll be hiking in New Hampshire on the Appalachian Trail. Pictures will definitely be posted after the weekend.  Unfortunately, the forcast calls for rain every day (requiring another trip to the store to buy gear that I will probably never use again) so that should make the hiking interesting. But a weekend away, banning the buzz (cell phones, computers, etc) is MUCH needed.

A few more notes:

As you know, I am the nutrition blogger for Naked Apartments. The site is finally LIVE–so all you New Yorkers who are looking to rent an apartment, please check it out. It’s a fabulous site.

Second, I’m now a twitter-head (Check out my twitter feed on the right side of the blog). Find @cakeandcarrots at Twitter and follow me! I post and discuss nutrition issues that I don’t talk about on the blog. Plus you can learn a little bit more about my daily activities!

The Cake and Carrots blog is currently undergoing a renovation. I hope to unveil a new website by early next month. I can’t wait to show you.

And lastly, many of you know that I’ve been using this week to rest, relax, and restore (aka create some new brain cells)  between my crazy Phish roadtrip last weekend and my upcoming hiking trip. Hence the shorter posts and recipes. Next week, however, I’ll be back with some NEW content.

Have a great weekend….and without further ado, your links of the week:

*Think twice before putting your bag on the counter. Microbes abound!

*Love avocado so much you want to take a bath in it? (Or is that just me) Whether you like it a lot or a little, it’s a wonderful food to incorporate into your diet.

*Detox your body without the master cleanse

*Want to live a long, wonderful, happy life? Just do four simple things.

*A candlelit dinner is so cliche. Try yoga for a unique first date! Written by one of my most favorite divas ever!

*Try this for a morning boost. Matt and I love it!

Friday Nibbles

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you have some great weekend plans ahead of you. I’ll be roadtrippin’ to Hartford, the Berkshires, and Saratoga Springs to see Phish play their final shows of their summer tour. Can’t think of a better way to spend a weekend! 

Thank you to those who left comments about topics they want to know more about. The invitation ALWAYS stands, so continue to ask away.

Here are this week’s top stories:

Most importantly, check out my post from Naked Apartments on what might be lurking in your reusable tote bags.

Do we need milk in our lives? I believe the answer is NO.

Some tips on how to build a better relationship with your food. Cause it’s all about the love.

Yoga and eating. A perfect partnership to curb your eating.

As if you needed another excuse to eat chocolate!

All veggies are good for your health, but these are REALLY good.

All this talk about health care reform.  How about HEALING reform?

We all love dirty secrets. Especially ones about body fat.

Very important for summer–natural remedies for mosquito bites. Written by a fellow diva friend!

I knew it was too good to be true when the Arc trainer at the gym showed I had burned 200 calories in 15 minutes

This Week’s Nibbles

This week’s links are coming a day early because tommorrow I will be blissfully relaxing at Kripalu to celebrate the end of my summer semester. Nothing sounds better to me than a day filled with yoga, great food, a few massages and energy work. God bless. Enjoy your weekend, and see you on Monday!

To live, or not to live, the low-carb vida. That is the question. (And here’s an answer)

If you’re going to drink soymilk, don’t drink Silk.  Also, try experimenting with other milks made from almonds, hemp, oats, or rice.

Only in America: amount of cooking television shows are on the rise, but actual home cooking is declining. Read Michael Pollan’s series of articles from New York Times Magazine.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again–“Yes, it’s totally OK to splurge (every one in awhile!)”

Want an increased sex drive? Check. Try adding some of these foods to spark your libido.

Check out this interactive diagram that shows you how nutrients get processed in your body. Save yourself the agony of learning in the classroom (unfortunately, I’m not that smart!)

We’re learning that much of the food we eat is either covered with pesticides, dangerous, or bad for us. Now you can eat with a clean conscious.

Let’s play a guessing game! You’ll be SHOCKED.

Friday’s Nibbles

A UK study was published this week saying that organic produce is no more nutritious than conventional produce.  OK, but what about pesticides? The impact on the environment? Supporting small farms? ‘

Marion Nestle’s wise words in response to the above study.

Oprah’s got issues. Do you? The lowdown on the thyroid.

Abuse? Neglect? I think it’s just plain ol’ sad.

In honor of my latest studies in microbiology, here’s an issue that affects us all.

Chilean salmon may sound fancy on a menu, but you may want to know what you’re actually eating before you order it.

Chlorine is for the pool, NOT for your carrots

If this gets you to eat less artificially colored food, then good.

The honeymoon is over…break out the fat pants!
