Week-End Link Love… [July 18 2013]

I was going through my draft posts and came across a link love that I never put up. Thought I would share now, because though these articles may be a year old, they are still interesting and relevant. Since we are at the end of the week it’s kind of still “week end” link love.

The Case Against Kids. About a year ago (when I compiled these links) was around the time when I fully changed my mind about having kids (to YES, definitely). If you’d asked me a few years before, I was very much anti-kid (at least for me). Now – I hope to have one or two soon. Still a good read.

Why do zoo apes get heart disease? It could be diet, lifestyle, or stress. Interesting read.

Monday Link & List Love [01.21.2013]

I have found some interesting links lately that I wanted to share:

Monday Link Love

  • The Nitrate & Nitrite Myth: Another Reason not to Fear Bacon: This article “debunks” the idea that nitrates and nitrites can cause serious health problems (cancer, heart disease). Honestly – I want to believe it; I just don’t know if I can. Apparently nitrates and nitrites are found in much higher amounts in natural foods like celery and even in our own saliva than they are in hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meats. Even if they are – aren’t they different? Wouldn’t our bodies treat “natural” (whatever that means) nitrates/nitrites differently than artificial ones? I have no idea. I’m not a food scientist but I would really like to know the truth behind processed meats. (Because I love bacon. Who doesn’t?)

Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup

Thanksgiving Food & Recipes Round-Up

  • Eating Bird Food’s Healthy Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up. In particular I like the look of the Vegan Walnut Loaf and Maple Roasted Brussels. There are also a few squash recipes in there and I think you all know how much I like squash.
  • The Yummy Life’s Make-Ahead Cornbread Stuffing. Cornbread? Stuffing? I’m in! (Maybe you call stuffing dressing?) I will likely add extra broth if and when I make this because I like really really moist stuffing. I like it best when it’s cooked right inside the bird.
  • J3nn’s Grain-Free Gluten-Free Bread Rolls. I’m not gluten or grain free but these still look delicious.
  • My RDealistic Diet posted a simple recipe for Sausage and Cauliflower Spaghetti this week. Do you guys remember Self’s blog, “Eat Like Me” by an RD named Cristin? Well, Cristin is back with a new blog and this is it! I remember reading her blog years ago – over 4 years ago actually – and that is how I got hooked on healthy living blogs. She is one of my favorites.
