Good good links #194

Oh hello there, it’s me again. My posting schedule has been a little erratic lately – some weeks going by, then two in one again. The previous post’s title might have scared some of you away. Politics, eh? But in a funny way, promise – it’s all about the differences between Germany and the US. As in: did you know we actually have a president, too, but you wouldn’t really be aware of it in everyday life? Well, what I also have are many great posts from all around the web for your Sunday reading pleasure. Let me know any thought-provoking or elsewise insightful you’ve stumbled upon in the comments, too.

Happy Sunday!

Yes, I know, I know, the terrible ‘c’ word. But this article was surprisingly differentiated in showing a variety of opinions and coming to an overall – in my mind – good conclusion.

While old news – hello, oxymoron 😉 – to me [plus, all German sugar is vegan in anyway], I thought this might be an good heads-up if you hadn’t heard about it.

    Loved that Summer Tomato article on eating when you’re hungry!! Honestly, that’s what I originally thought intuitive eating was about–eating when hungry, stoping when full–and yes, thought it does also help one be in touch with hunger and fullness cues, it’s also recognizing that eating goes beyond physical purposes. The social and emotional aspects of hunger play a role too! Also digging The Lean Green Bean’s post. Struggles are all relative but that doesn’t mean they aren’t struggles.

    Have a lovely week! 🙂

    My favorite “diet” ice cream is wink frozen desserts which I think needs more press -however, some might not think it’s all that good because they don’t eat it right – ie: leave on the counter to melt for at least 5 – 8 minutes, ha! But it has 100 calories per pint (some flavors have more but I can’t eat those)… And it’s completely EVERYTHING free – ha! Including sugar, which is a rarity in these diet ice creams. Not going to lie, I eat a pint a night on most nights and it just works for me! 😉
