What’s Good This Week

This is me with my best Stockhomies. I’m the very pregnant lady on the far left, in case there were any questions. When you live far away from your family, your friends become like your family, and this foursome here is my tightest, closest crew. We’ve been through so much together. Three weddings, four babies,…

are you hungry? thoughts on physical vs emotional hunger

Most days around three o’clock or so in the afternoon, I find myself standing in front of the office snack drawer and asking myself this question: am I hungry? I’ll admit it’s taken a fair amount of mindfulness to get to the point of asking this question in the first place. When I first started…

Stockholm

On Friday afternoon I was at work, in a meeting room with colleagues, a client, and a presenter from an external research agency, when our CEO came flying through the door and said something about an attack. My Swedish is pretty good, but our CEO talks really fast and these were words I had not…

This little man came storming into our lives almost two weeks ago, in the wee hours of March 1st, 2016. He avoided being a leap day baby by a matter of hours, but when he decided he was ready to come he charged out at break-neck speed, clearly taking after his father and attempting to…

what’s good around the web!

Hello from London! We’ve spent a whirlwind weekend here celebrating my brother-in-law’s 40th birthday. It’s been a weekend filled with good food, good friends, and family – and I have no photos to show for it. A sure sign of a good time! Now for some great food, nutrition, and health articles for your weekend…

taking a break

Hi folks. It’s been quiet around here lately. It wasn’t my intention to just abandon ship without letting you know first, but it’s what ended up happening. Sorry about that. And thank you for all of the very sweet emails and tweets I’ve been receiving checking in. Don’t worry about me, I’m just taking a break….

kamut and zucchini fritters

It always takes me a bit of time to shake off my vacation. Or maybe it’s shimmying back into work life that takes a bit of effort. Whatever it is, it’s nice to be getting back into a bit of a routine. Part of our routine, for now, is heading to the farmer’s market on…

what’s good around the web + weekly meal plan

This week’s meal plan is brought to you by the letter M for Meltdown, which is what I had this weekend. I finished a first draft of my thesis (a whole five days ahead of schedule! who am I?!) in between a lot of tears and irrational yelling, and fuelled by a lethal combination of…

fudgy adzuki bean brownies

One time while I was at a party that I had made most of the food for, including a few chocolate cakes (this cake, to be specific), a girl came up to me and asked if there was sugar in the cakes. I told her of course there was sugar in the cakes. They’re cakes! Chocolate cakes!…

what’s good around the web!

We’re officially out of the circle of darkness! Whooohoo! I love biking home in the not-totally-dark these days. Also, even after almost four years it still gets me that I bike past a royal palace (albeit a totally ugly one) on my way to and from work. What’s good around the web is a weekly…

what’s good around the web!

Hello from Barcelona! Paul and I have nipped over for the weekend for some warmer weather, tapas, cava, and a little 21km run (him, not me) fuelled largely by Spanish olives. This is a pre-race shot of all the runners making their way towards the start line. What’s good around the web is a weekly…

strawberry maca milkshake

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! Or Happy Friday! Whatever you’re into. As I mentioned previously, Paul and I aren’t in the habit of doing anything special on the 14th of February. This year we happen to be zipping off to Barcelona on the day of love, but it’s for a race, not for romance. I mean,…

what’s good around the web!

Although we’re now losing light rapidly, I do love it at this time of year. In the early evening sunlight funnels down our street and is equal parts blinding and beautiful. What’s good around the web is a weekly series where I share some of what I’ve been reading around the web. Each week I’ll…
