Howdy folks! I hope the weekend is treating you well so far. We’ve spent much of the day today getting our apartment ready to be photographed so we can put it up for sale the second we’ve found something new. Wow, what a lot of junk we’ve gotten out of here! And our balcony, for probably the first and last time in the 5+ years we’ve lived here, looks like an actual balcony. No bikes, no stinky sports gear, no random bits of flotsam. Thankfully it was a gloriously sunny day today, so we got to soak it up, even if briefly.
3. Why beef is the new SUV. And further to that: Beans match beef in satiety – but consumers don’t expect them to.
4. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, butter is not back: Limiting saturated fat is still best for heart health.
Also, in case you missed it, I’m on Oh My Veggies talking all about Fall Superfoods this week.
I got a LOT of meal prep done this weekend, including a riff on this Kale and White Bean Tortilla. This time I used some rainbow chard instead of kale, and dollops of fresh ricotta instead of the beans. Same same, but different. I also made a big batch of a tempeh bolognese, and a carrot ginger and red lentil soup. Those recipes will be headed your way sooooon!
Also on my radar this week is this Charred Romaine Salad with Tahini Dressing (hold the anchovies, please) from The Pancake Princess, this Apple Pie Smoothie from Veganosity, and this Leek and Potato Pizzette from The Little Loaf – along with Kate’s simultaneously exciting and scary news.
What are y’all eating this week?
