Good good links #80

Looks who’s late to deliver the links! I’m taking this as an excuse (?) to keep the reflective thoughts on this week to a minimum [read: none] and dive straight into what I’ve been reading these past days. With it being NEDA week there were many many great posts I was overwhelmed in which to include so there are just a few today and more will be featured in future Good good links.  Now I’m off to chase and [hopefully] find the sunshine on this rather rainy day [there even was hail earlier!] and hope you’re enjoying a great day.

Happy Sunday!

Good good [food for thought]

While I don’t agree with all of these [cochenille being an obvious one] there are some additivites that might not be as awful as proclaimed.

Good food gone bad? No need to ditch that lumpy gravy, overcooked beans or way too spicy dish with these tips.

This: “Denying yourself never ends well in the long term.” and this: “The only failure, in my eyes, is if you have a treat and don’t enjoy it.” – sums up my view on treating ourselves to what we crave.

Wellness Wednesday: Tuning In To Hunger And Fullness Cues via Avocado a Day Nutrition

Our emotions can influence how much we eat heavily and the  “eat when hungry, stop when full”  rule easier said than done.

Some you might already follow and some new ones to add to your reader.
It’s all about the basics. I’m notorious for skipping them but my knees would thank me for trying this one.
