what’s good around the web + weekly meal plan

meal plan April 27 - May 1 // www.heynutritionlady.com

Hi folks, I hope you’re all enjoying relaxing and nourishing weekends. We’ve had lots of sunshine but chilly temperatures, like spring really wants to be here but just can’t quite get there yet. Here’s hoping that May will be a nice, warm month!

This coming week is a short one, so I only need to pack lunches three days. Thursday will be a half day at the office, so I’ll make myself lunch when I get home, and Friday is a holiday here. Thursday April 30th is known as Valborg, historically a Viking fertility celebration where the arrival of spring was celebrated with bonfires at night. The fires were intended to scare off witches and evil spirits, but they also scared off predators such as foxes before the livestock were let out to graze on May 1st. These days, Swedes tend to look at this holiday as a chance to welcome Spring and light evenings back after a long winter. And welcome they are!

3. A diet *might* cut the risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

4. It’s time to bust the myth of physical inactivity and obesity: you cannot out run a bad diet. Also, inactivity is killing more people than obesity is.

    Ooh, thanks for the share of the NYT op ed piece. Shared it on social media and to my daughter studying Social Anthropogy at St Andrews University. And I will have to look at those yoga poses for sure. Have a lovely, short week. 🙂

      It’s quite an interesting piece, isn’t it? As a vegetarian of over 20 years I’m accustomed to being a bit of a pain, but outside of the parameters of my chosen diet I’ll eat pretty much anything set in front of me and am always up for trying new things.
