Good good links #205

Did I say I was going to share these links just a few days after my previous post? Yes.  Did I have every intention to? Also yes. Life? Decided to knock me out of commission for a full week [read: what I thought was just a little cold and optimistically told my doctor would be over on Wednesday already … was so very much not]. My head was mush so neither blog reading nor blogging happened. So once again: sorry! I’m still not feeling 100 % but went back to work today so figured I should definitely make my promise to you come true, too. As always, I’d be happy for you to share links to any great posts you happened upon lately as – I’m sure you can guess – I definitely missed out on many of them. Truly catching up with blog world happenings when you’ve been gone for more than a day or two seems impossible which leads right to the first post lined up here …

Happy Monday!

Good good [food for thought]

As much as we all use it, hasn’t almost every one of us had these thoughts before in those moments when everything seems too much, too fast? Time for a change …?

The language of wellness  via Lauren Fowler

As in: the terminology and approaches that make you feel very unwell in your skin and bad about your diet.

WTF, Weight Watchers?The fact they’re even considering this says a lot [negatively] about our society.

Good good [advice and inspiration]

These ideas for gently nudging negative thoughts into more neutral or positive ones are so great.

What a registered dietitian and pastry chef wants us to know about desserts via Self Magazine

Her perspective on treats is spot on [just don’t get stressed about her comment on the added sugar recommendations; who really counts these meticulously?].

10 Signs You’re Healthy — Regardless of What the Scale Says via FitSugar

It’s nice to see even the major health/fitness websites these days promote looking past your weight to see how healthy you are. Not agreeing with the mindful eating point here, though [it’s not a hunger and fullness “diet” and processed foods need not be avoided at all costs.]

8 Science-Backed Reasons to Cuddle More via Mind Body Green

As if we needed any more reasons, right?! #2 aside [seriously?!], these should make you want to huge somebody else [or yourself] ASAP.

Good good [food]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fondue [vegan] via Joy Food Sunshine

Yes, your first thought was right: heaven in a [fondue] bowl, essentially.  Sorry not sorry for any cravings sparked here.

Moroccan Lentil Chickpea Stew via Vanilla and Bean

When a stew combines two legumes and contains plenty of fragrant spices, you know you’ve got a winner.

Happiness-inducing today (cheating: they’re from the past few days):  a snowy but sunny walk with my mum yesterday, her stopping by to bring me wakame salad for the first time ever when I was sick.

Stay in touch!

    Love that pastry chef’s opinion on sweets! It’s all about balance not deprivation. And my sweet tooth thanks me for that. 🙂 Also really appreciated that one on non-scale indicators of health. That definitely resonated with me.

    Hope you got some much needed rest over the week!
