Good good links #188

… and the flakiest blogger award goes to: me! I know, I know. Rather than go into a lengthy explanation of the why I’ll dive straight into some the best posts I’ve come across lately.  I might also feel extra tired after a day of traveling with more stress-inducing train delays that should be possible on a relatively short distance. Major props to Deutsche Bahn for managing that ;).  But onto those links now!

Good good [food for thought]

How Eating Intuitively Helped Me Live More Intuitively via Hummusapien

This! I might have been sharing a lot of Alexis’ posts lately but this one is a must-read again.

The Metabolic Power of Pleasure via Psychology of Eating

Really fascinating [hence why I put it into this category rather than the seond]. If this doesn’t make you slow down, truly savour your food and stop labeling anything as ‘bad’. Spoiler alert: the latter might even help you absorb nutrients better.


Good good [advice and inspiration]

Talking About Money Is A Gift To Everyone Around You via yes and yes

Truth: I’m uncomfortable talking about it, too, but this post has some very strong arguments for opening up the conversation to help each other.

Giving up via Loved and Worthy of Loving

Forgoing the focus on results and changing our motivation to do something – in this case exercise – might make us a lot happier than we would expect.

7 Myths Nutritionists Wish You’d Stop Believing via Popsugar

Some new insight on salt, diet soda, muscles turning into fat (do they?) and others you might not have heard of before.

What Happened When I Quit Exercise via Mind Body Green

Rather than just confirm once again – like many posts have before – that no, we won’t gain endless amounts of weight, the author explores the limiting beliefs she held about herself and at that kept her stuck exercising despite not enjoying it.

The Simple Hack That Prevents Your Ponytail From Sagging During Workouts via FitSugar

Say sayonara to readjusting your hair 294858 times a day.


9 Health Documentaries That Are Scary, Uplifting, and Streaming on Netflix via Popsugar

These make me wish I had a Netflix account again. Though as of yet they’re not available over here so if you’re in the US …



Why SEO is KILLING your blog via Helene in Between

Calm down, you haven’t been studying all the SEO advice for nothing. Just make sure you do this first, then let SEO follow.

9 Common Social Media Mistakes to Avoid via Bloguettes

This one’s especially interesting if you’re trying to market yourself/your blog as a stand-out brand.

The Trouble with Twitter via Forever Amber

Further proof that social media unfortunately brings out the very nasty side in some people. Having a strong opinion on something isn’t an issue, neither voicing it [in a friendly way] online. But shaming others for having a different one or aggressively trying to change theirs isn’t cool.

Income Reports: What we learned and why we’re stopping via Pinch of Yum

Many people have been fans of Bjork’s monthly income reports for ages but I actually like this one so much more. These lessons are truly helpful for pretty much every aspect of life, not just blogging.


Good good [food]

Vegan No-Churn Cinnamon Roll Ice Cream via Blissful Basil

Sweetened only by dates and a bit of maple syrup, this sounds perfect for those hot days where you want both the refreshment of a cool treat and the comforting bliss of a cinnamon roll.

Black and White Chocolate Pudding [vegan] via Golubka Kitchen

Such a simple but still elegant [healthier] dessert made from few easy ingredients.

Peanut Butter Sheet Cake [vegan + gluten-free] via Full of Plants

Peanut butter in the cake, more peanut butter in the frosting and topping – yesss, please.

Frozen Gluten Free + Vegan Peanut Butter Cup Pie via A Saucy Kitchen

More peanut butter because there’s no such thing as too much of it. Especially not if you add chocolate.

From the two main ingredients – hi, chickpea and carrot fiend – to the spices and the fruity kick of the raisins, everything about this dish speaks to me.

Bean Bake with Greens and Turnips via Naturally Ella

Aside from being pretty to look at, this easy to prepare vegan dish just sound so hearty and satisfying.

Happiness-inducing today: Spending time with my sister and P. [plus my parents and her husband, obviously]. Totally worth the train troubles.
