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, and that just won’t be possible (in the same way anyways) for much longer. So here’s hoping for speedy legs from both of us!

Now, on to the links!


1. Sad, but true: The more we learn about nutrition, the more we ignore. 

2. New York City is going to be requiring restaurants to post warning labels on salty dishes.

3. An interesting look at the balance between psychology and physiology when it comes to exercise: I’m training for a marathon. So why am I gaining weight? 

4. In a world full of junk-food fundraising and celebrities pushing big brands, it’s nice to see Tom Brady speaking out about junk food. Too bad the University of North Carolina School of Medicine doesn’t see things that way.

5. Some good tips here! 5 ways to have a better relationship with food.

Since I’m not at home this weekend, I’m depending (yet again, it’s been bonkers lately) on eating down the freezer for my packed lunches this week. I’ve got a few freezer burritos left, a couple of different kinds of frozen soup, and one last slice of this Swiss Chard and Gruyere Strata. I definitely have to do some batch cooking on the next quiet weekend that rolls around.

Also, go check out this Hot Garlicky Broccoli Rabe Sandwich from Connoisseurus Veg, this Golden Red Lentil Dal from Oh She Glows, and I must say I’m intrigued by this Mexican Lentil and Chard Breakfast Casserole from MJ and Hungry Man.

    Take good care of that baby too.

    Regarding 5 Ways to Have a Better Relationship with Food.
    While spending two weeks in Paris, we noted that patisseries, boulangeries and frommageries were plentiful and on every block, obviously being enjoyed by the locals. Not even an excess of vegetables and salads in the restaurants. But notably few fast food outlets, and fewer overweight people. Maybe we need to add enjoyment to the Michael mantra, and quality.

      I think enjoyment is so important. So many of us forget to stop and savour something really delicious rather than just shovelling it in. We need to remember to smell the roses, as it were.
