Hm, the title doesn’t exactly have the same catchiness, does it? I had full intentions of participating is WIAW today. However, that usually requires pictures of meals and I failed to capture more than breakfast…
Fried egg and avocado on a half a toasted onion roll with cheese and a clementine on the side.
A mini chicken salad (which I topped with buffalo sauce and clue cheese dressing) with a bowl of Emily’s White Bean and Kale Veggie Stew (which Hailey liked too!)
on camera. So I figured I make things a little more casual this Wednesday and share with you some of my favorite links I’ve run across lately…
Favorite Healthy Cooking Confession:
From-Scratch Cooking Confession: I Can’t Keep Up! by Real Mom Nutrition
I love this link because I can easily relate. Though I make a lot of our food from scratch, it’s certainly not everything all the time! I’d lose my mind.
Favorite Mom-Related Post:
Letter to Our First Born Before She Becomes a Big Sister from Windtraveler
Windtraveler is a blog I love because they are a young family that lives (lived) on a sailboat, something that piques mine and David’s interest. However, they are on land right now because they are expecting their twin girls to arrive in the next 24 hours!
Favorite Summer Thirst-Quencher Idea:
Coconut Water Ice Cubes from FitSugar
Yes! Love the idea of these, especially to throw in cranberry lime seltzer mocktails.
Favorite Head-Nodding Post:
You Are Not Diminished By Others’ Success from Fitness Perks
Just… yes! I’ve never understood why it is so hard for some people to be happy for others. I put my focus on building a life that I love and luckily that leads to very little leftover time for comparison or jealousy.
Favorite Food Swap List:
Healthy Food Replacements by 360 Your Life
I don’t always swap things out; sometimes I just want real sour cream, darn it! 😉 But it’s nice to check out substitutes for when I am up for playing in the kitchen. My favorite from this list is the whipped avocado in place of mayo. It makes me dream of some heavenly BLTs I could make in summer!
Two more health articles I think are worth a read…
Study finds link between BPA and prostate cancer –> BPA isn’t just a health buzzword; it can seriously harm our health.
Antibiotic misuse putting hospital patients at risk, CDC says –> Yikes. Antibiotics are one of my hot issues. I feel many doctors hand them out like candy. This can not only damage our immune systems and gut health, but also is also contributing to the rise of those super bugs that honestly terrify my inner germaphobe!
***Also, Munchkin Meals Link Up is tomorrow and I’d love for you to join in!***
What about you…
Do you have any great links to share?
