what’s good around the web!

We’ve reached that time of year in Stockholm where it never really gets dark, only dim. This is an 11:15pm sunset on a bike ride home from work last week. It was so stunning I kept stopping to take pictures, which really don’t do justice to the colours of the sky and the water.

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 be posting links to five nutrition related articles, good recipes, and just general good reads. I hope you enjoy it!

If you’ve got at article or recipe you’d like to see featured, please email me.

What’s good around the web?

1. I had my first watermelon slice of the year last week, oh man, it was good. A reader sent me a link to this article all about things to do with watermelon.

2. Why ‘natural’ may not be good for you.

3. I’m always yammering on about moderation. Turns out that moderation is as beneficial for exercise as it is for eating.

4. We were discussing fruit juices as sugary drinks a few weeks ago. Here is another interesting article on the subject of fruit juice and nutrition.

5. A few weeks ago  we looked at an article about a USDA study which questioned whether healthy foods really are more expensive. This study, released a couple of weeks after the USDA study, has the answer.

    These are certainly very interesting reads. Good work on collating them! Love that photo you took of the sunset, beautiful colours. Sunset’s very early here in Melbourne nowadays, its completely dark when it gets to around 5:30pm!

      Glad you like the series! I remember those early sunsets at this time of year from when I lived in New Zealand. This time of year is pretty spectacular in Sweden, but there is a pretty fierce payback in December when the sun doesn’t rise till 10am and goes down around 2pm and it isn’t ever really anything other than dark or dim. It is beautiful in it’s own way, but we’ve certainly got to soak up the sun while we can get it!

    Lots of interesting discussion in the comments following the exercise article. Seems balance is always the best practice.
