Weekend Links #38

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:
--This guest post on Eating Rules identifies one way in which thinking mathematically about our food can help (or hinder) us making healthy decisions: Math and Food: A Thought Experiment.
--How to help the world by not eating local, from Casual Kitchen. I follow Daniel for consistently quality posts like this one. (Related: This post about how food miles don't make up the most important part of environmental impact of food, from Farming Futures.)

recipe links:
--Flaxseed focaccia bread (from Healthful Pursuit); not only is it grain-free but it's got very few ingredients and they are all "ordinary" ones.
--Some vegetarian burgers that are made with cauliflower and chickpeas, hence they are called cauliflower hummus burgers. How great does that sound? From Oh My Veggies.
--Some people still don't know that cauliflower can be amazingly tasty. For this person, there is cocoa roasted cauliflower, from The Taste Space.
--I have made this pumpkin spice latte (from The Nourishing Gourmet) at home a few times for my autumn fix, since Starbucks here in Singapore doesn't sell it. In fact, in October they were already serving their Christmas drinks. Pfffft.
--Chocolate pecan pie, from Elana's Pantry. Holiday food!

books I'm reading:
--Man's Search For Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl, a classic which I picked up in an airport
--Thanks for the Feedback: The Science and Art of Receiving Feedback Well by Douglas Stone and Sheila Heen

cookbooks I'm cooking from:
--None at the moment... I'm on crutches for six weeks; sigh. But if I was cooking, it would be from Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat Melissa Joulwan because it is all about planning ahead and making tasty stuff easier.
--Also I wish I was cooking from Moosewood Restaurant Daily Special because I am craving crunchy salads. The variety of mixtures in this book is always surprising to me.

off-topic links:
--I usually start making my plans for a new year the November before; that is, now is the time to plan for 2015! This year I'm being helped by the Passion Planner and this Devotion Worksheet from Alexandra Franzen.
