Whoa weekend. Have you ever had a weekend that you’re not quite sure what happened to it, let alone what you really did? I had one of those. Let’s just say smoke detectors and late nights on a ladder do not make the ideal weekend.
But, I try to be the eternal optimist and see the light through the cracks (well, at least I’m trying…), so here are the things that I was grateful for this weekend, and yes, most are food related…surprise:
Lounging by the pool on the HOTTEST day of the year
Salads (yes salads) made with the most delicious salad dressing. I could probably drink this stuff. Does this mean I’m becoming a Marylander?
National Ice Cream Day the La Dolce Vita way (aka, we ate gelato)
And fresh pasta from the farmer’s market, this kind happened to be chipotle lime, so delicious! Just add veggies.
While the weekend wasn’t much to write home about, I did enjoy a quiet evening catching up on my favorite show Revenge. Don’t tell me what happened, I’m still a little behind. Yes, not the biggest TV person, but I have my addictions like everyone else (can you say Real Housewives of wherever?).
I’ve also been stockpiling some great health and wellness reads that I wanted to share with you. Between tweets, LinkedIn articles, and great publications sent to me by my colleagues, I have the privilege of staying in the know – so I’d like to help you do the same 🙂
WELLNESS ROUND UP
- If you’re up for a bit of a lengthy read, Slate’s “Are GMO’s Safe?” will help you get the info on what it really means for something to be genetically modified. Spoiler: It’s not all bad.
- Trying to find the holy grail of work-life balance? PBS is giving us the lowdown on what they’ve figured out. My favorite take-away? Maybe it’s not about adding something else, but rather focusing on what is already there.
- Michael Pollan and Oprah chatted. They talked food, gardening, and beliefs. This snippet from the episode on Super Soul Sunday was my favorite. “What you choose to put in your mouth and what you choose NOT to put in your mouth say a lot about what you believe.” Vote with your fork.
What have you read or listened to lately about health and wellness that stuck with you?
