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 food cupcakes with dark chocolate ganache and white chocolate spider webs to take along. Now I'm home with way too many left over! I suppose there are worse problems to be had...
1. Have you heard the news? The WHO just ranked processed meats alongside smoking as cancer causes.
2. What milk should I drink? <-- A worthy read.
4. The instagram effect: are photos of food fuelling obesity?
5. How salad can make us fat. And no, it's not the dressing.
Finally, a weekend at home to get caught up on my meal planning game and re-stock the freezer! Have you tried these curried cauliflower chickpea wraps yet? They're one of the most popular recipes on The Muffin Myth, and with good reason! Jam packed full of good nutrition, incredible flavour, and they're freezer friendly to boot. I'm working on a butternut squash riff in sandwich form that I hope to share with you soon.
In other meal planning inspo from around the web, this Roasted Butternut Squash and Pear Salad with Lentils from The Roasted Root is calling my name. Also, this Roasted Butternut Squash Sandwich with Balsamic White Bean Spread from Connoisseurus Veg. And I'm loving the looks of this Butternut Squash Soup with Pumpkin Seed Granola from Health Inspirations. Clearly it's butternut squash or bust this week!
