Weekend Links is a way of sharing all the engrossing things I see around the internet. I publish Weekend Links approximately every month. As usual, I welcome your ideas and feedback.
food reading links:
--A long article I have been reading about fueling a marathon while eating paleo (from Ben Greenfield Fitness). And here's another take from Mark's Daily Apple.
--While we're on the topic of sports nutrition, I was reading about a couple who are rowing from California to Hawaii without sugar or "junk carbohydrates" (from Diet Doctor).
--A great post from A Veggie Venture that answers the question, "What is a tomatillo?" plus everything you need to know about them.
--Just before our three weeks away from home I was freezing everything left in the fridge and discovered you can even freeze quiche and tortilla chips (from The Kitchn).
--Macaroni and cheese made with Guinness, heavy cream, lots of cheese, and some crunchy barley (from Mutineer Magazine). What a combination!
--Ginger and chocolate ice cream (from Blogging Over Thyme). I love everything ginger, and pairing it with dark chocolate is perfect.
--I was investigating grain-free Yorkshire pudding recently and found a recipe (from The Saffron Girl) that looks like it is worth trying.
--The flaxseed crust on these mini quiches is a useful recipe to have on standby (from The Kitchn). Plus, mini quiches are good for breakfasts.
books I'm reading:
--Mindset: How You Can Fulfil Your Potential by Carol Dweck
--The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey (and I wrote about some of my learnings on my personal blog)
cookbooks I'm cooking from:
--Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat by Melissa Joulwan
--Moosewood Restaurant Daily Special; I recently adapted their Mexican tomato and garlic soup and I make their dressings all the time.
--I get Annie Murphy Paul's newsletter, The Brilliant Report, every week and always learn from it. She writes about learning, the science of intelligence, and what we know about becoming smart.
--A mathematician analyses the best way to cut a cake for optimal freshness on the second day (video from Numberphile). Bonus fact: in France a pie chart is actually named after a round food...!
