what’s good around the web + weekly meal plan

meal plan may 18 - 22 // www.heynutritionlady.com

Happy Friday, folks! I’m going to keep this brief because I’ve got sisters in town, tours to give, and 40th birthday cakes to bake. This is gearing up to be a pretty indulgent weekend, so next week is all about a nice light reset. Next week is also when my routine flips and I start swimming before work instead of at lunch, so my breakfast is changing up to a meal replacing smoothie like the strawberry coconut super smoothie or the chocolate black bean brownie smoothie, rather than the feathery light green smoothies I’ve been drinking lately. Anyways, that’s what’s up and I hope y’all enjoy your weekends. On to the links!

    First it’s almonds, now it’s avocados, but in reality it’s factory farming of livestock that’s using up the water and killing the environment. The amount of water that it takes to grow the crops to feed the livestock and to keep the animals alive is obscene. Until people realize the harm that the meat and dairy industry is doing to this planet we’ll continue to watch this happen. I have to say, if meat eaters make my beloved avocado go away I’ll be less than the tolerant person that I am today. 🙂

    Have a wonderful birthday celebration weekend with your family!

      Linda, have you ever read a book called The Vegetarian Myth? It’s written by a former vegan and basically takes a part every possible reason for vegetarianism. It was a challenging book to read, and I didn’t agree with much of what was said, but the section on agriculture and the ecology of plant-based eating was very interesting and in line with much of what I learned when I studied food systems in my nutrition undergrad. It’s not an easy book, but is worth a read if you can get your hands on a copy.
