what’s good around the web!

Does anyone else feel like they blinked and September was just suddenly gone? It was a lovely month. We transitioned from summer to autumn not so gently (thanks, Sweden), got our boy more settled into his daycare routine, and generally worked on spending time together as a family. We took a quick (and I do…

You guys, it is September tomorrow. August was a big month in our house. Most notably, our sweet boy started daycare, which has been a major change for us all. For him, of course, shifting from spending all day with his parents to spending a large chunk of the day with other kids his age…

My child started walking in February, just before his first birthday, and has by now become much more stable, faster, more sure of himself, and has become a confident patron of playgrounds all around Stockholm. Although April is technically fully into spring, it sure hasn’t felt that way this year. It’s been cold, there has been…

Hello friends. Well February has whizzed by, hasn’t it’? Maybe because it’s my last month of maternity leave, perhaps because my baby turns one tomorrow, maybe because it’s a short month as it is. But dang, I blinked and it’s gone. This weekend I’ll be rolling up my sleeves and packing lunches for the first…

Howdy. It’s been on my mind to revive What’s Good Around The Web, since I know many of you enjoy reading it and I certainly enjoy sifting through nutrition news to find interesting and worthy reads. My thinking is it should become a monthly rather than weekly feature, since I’m making a concerted effort to…

It’s hard to know what to say during times like these. Scary times. Times that make me question this world I’m bringing a child into. Last night I was lucky enough to be given a ticket to go see Madonna live in Stockholm with a fabulous group of ladies. Tart way through the concert Madonna stopped…

Good times all around! And now onto some great food, nutrition, and…

Hi Folks! I hope you all have had great Halloween weekends. Halloween is only just starting to be a thing in Stockholm, and it’s not well understood yet. But we were lucky enough to be invited to a Halloween party (I went as Juno, rocking the bump) and I made a huge batch of devil’s…

Hello from Amsterdam! We’re on just a quick weekend trip for Paul’s annual fall marathon. This one feels a bit more poignant than usual, as it’s the last one where we’ll be working as a team during the race. Normally I run around the course getting support (gels, fluids) to him at a different points,…

This is what $40 worth of canned pumpkin looks like in Stockholm. The things you’re willing to shell out for when you’re an expat… I’ve had a bonkers busy weekend – the kind of weekend you need a weekend from – so in spite of my best intentions I didn’t get a lot of lunch focused…

Leaving the sleep little island of Finnhamn in the Stockholm archipelago, where my company had a retreat a few weeks back. It really is such a beautiful part of the world we live in!   1. How safe is the newest “natural” sugar substitute? 2. Why there is so much sugar in your kid’s school breakfast….

A Friday evening stroll through central Stockholm right around sunset. We’ve been looking after our favourite four-legged friend over the weekend, and I’ve been reminded of how much I enjoy taking long walks and listening to podcasts. Speaking of which, have you discovered the Undisclosed podcast? If you were a fan of Serial, you really…

Hi friends! I hope you’re all having a great Friday. Here’s what’s up on next week’s meal plan: kelp noodles are my new favourite thing, so I’ll be packing a kelp noodle salad for lunch on my lighter eating days. I’m totally obsessed with tahini in my smoothies right now and you should be too!…

Happy Friday, folks! I’m going to keep this brief because I’ve got sisters in town, tours to give, and 40th birthday cakes to bake. This is gearing up to be a pretty indulgent weekend, so next week is all about a nice light reset. Next week is also when my routine flips and I start…
