Weekend Links #33

Weekend Links is a way of sharing all the engrossing things I see around the internet. I publish Weekend Links approximately every two weeks. As usual, I welcome your ideas and feedback.

food reading links:
--Looking back on Elizabeth David's legacy (from the Observer Food Monthly). She has been described as the UK's "first lady of food" thanks to her 1950s cookbooks lauding fresh, mediterranean ingredients.
--Eating healthfully is easier when you have a bigger reason to do it than for yourself. Enter a Christian reason to serve God with your diet (from The Atlantic). The article also compares the church to Weight Watchers.
--The comments in this short article from The Kitchn elaborate on what "clean as you go" really means for a messy cook.

recipe links:
--A hilariously easy soup with chickpea croutons (from My New Roots). Also, as a bonus, useful information about using fresh turmeric.
--Carrots are my favourite vegetable, and this carrot hummus from Love and Lemons has sparked my interest.
--Also, how to make carrots look and taste like smoked salmon (from The Chubby Vegetarian).
--Pickled turnips are sexy, too (from Lentil Breakdown).

off-topic links:
--Fashionable cycling clothes now include skirts and blouses designed for greater movement and sweat wicking (from The Green Life). Also helmet covers that look like fedoras!
--I really like Radiant Orchid, Pantone's colour of the year. What about you?
--A post from Casual Kitchen about what it means to be an individual blogger competing (or not) with the big blog teams like Huffington Post. It's a bit whiny, but ultimately reaffirms why we little bloggers do it.
