what’s good around the web!

This picture was taken at one of my favourite places on earth, while sitting next to one of my favourite people on earth. Good day!

What’s good around the web is a weekly series where I share some of what I’ve been reading around the web. Each week I’ll be posting links to five nutrition related articles, good recipes, and just general good reads. I hope you enjoy it!

If you’ve got at article or recipe you’d like to see featured, please email me.

What’s good around the web?

1. What to do with beet greens!

2. I do love a good grain salad, and this quinoa salad with chickpeas, feta, and apples is on my must-make list.

3. Does having better nutrition labeling equal better nutrition habits? Maybe not.

4. You know I love edamame. I need to make these dry roasted edamame with cranberries stat!

5. Are you a lunch packer or do you eat out? Either way, here are five healthy office lunch ideas.

    Great ideas on beet greens.
    Just on the news, that Europeans regulate food… at least salt. Those Quebecois are eating much more salt than anyone else in the world. It seems a shame to associate food labels with increased obesity.

      I didn’t read the article as associating food labels with increased obesity, but that having nutrition information (nutrition labels) doesn’t correlate with decreased obesity and better nutrition. That, I think, is sad. We have the information but we’re either not making use of it or can’t make use of it.

    Yes, a better way of saying it.
    ‘What’s good about this’…in your blog, inspires the converted. It creates a meal of healthy food you can eat. How to make the most use of that?
    I use food labels to discern the best from the worst of the processed foods I must use. Let’s face it, not much nutrition labelling on dried beans and vegetables.
