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 meal prep done. Plus we’ve got a partially functioning stovetop which is sort of flailing around on our counter top at the moment (don’t ask), which complicates things a bit. But, I’ve got some really interesting food, nutrition, and health articles for your weekend reading pleasure, and some weekly meal plan inspo below. Enjoy!
1. I don’t want to alarm you, but word on the street is that there might be a canned pumpkin shortage this fall. But fear not, it’s easy enough to process your own pumpkin!
4. Have you been drinking skim for decades? Maybe you should re-think whole milk.
Luckily my freezer is filled with grab and go meals like this Swiss Chard and Gruyere Strata, which you really should try if you haven’t already. I’m really thankful that my past self stashed these away, along with a pile of Roasted Butternut Squash and Black Bean Freezer Burritos.
Also on my radar this week is this Vegetarian Tamale Pie from Annie’s Eats, this Autumn Glow Salad from Pinch of Yum, and even though I’m really only into warm food these days, this Cucumber Kale Salad via Shutterbean (from Heidi Swanson’s new cookbook) totally caught my eye.
