Good good links #173

It’s beginning to look/feel a lot like …

Sunday. Definitely not Christmas because – thank goodness! – temperatures rose a little again. I don’t like this as an effect of climate change but I can’t deny I’m not a fan of wintery temperatures. <- am I really talking about the weather? Lamest way of writing an  intro. Ever. Moving onto more interesting topics which would be those adressed by many awesome bloggers out there again this week. I hope you’ll find some reading material and …

Happy Sunday!

Why You Should Never Change Yourself for Someone Else via Erin’s Inside Job

    Man that carrot/potato dip… so cool, eh? I’ve seen a few of those potato based kinds of recipes and I really want to just try one sometime to see how it works. And a big *snap snap* to the “embrace your flaws” post. I never really thought of that perspective, but I’m glad someone has said it.

    I really appreciate Khushboo’s post about eating for climate change. I really agree with what she’s saying: whether we eat for our health, our weight, eat intuitively and what we enjoy, we are ultimately eating for our own personal reasons, and don’t often think or talk about how what we eat affects the environment, at least not much in our blogging community. Thanks for sharing!
