If you were lucky enough not to follow my tweets all weekend, then you didn’t have to witness a whiny pity party because more hours of my life were wasted on technology. The iPhone was making me crazy again and this time it looks like it was due to more problems with Outlook/Windows. (Seven hours on the phone with Apple on Saturday, and two more on Sunday.) Of course I just got this new PC in March, so I can’t justify buying a new Mac… For those of you who want to remind me that there are much bigger problems in the world, believe me, I know. Part of my frustration is knowing I shouldn’t be so upset over something that really doesn’t matter. OK, enough whining about my weekend, I’ve got some great Real Food goodies for you…
- Another tweet you may have missed, but a much more cheery one: I read these 3 books to my kids last night. One teaches about eating right in a fun way, and the others teach your kids about being kind and loving others. They’re my favorites and I think every parent should read these to their kids. 🙂
- Read Dan's take on the movie, “Ingreedients”. Is there any way us Real Foodies couldn’t love it with that great name?
- You’ve got to watch this video with Michael Pollan that Kristen (“Food Renegade”) posted last week. And get this, he’s coming to Lansing in April and I get to go see him! If you want to ride over together or meet some of us who are going and possibly get a group rate (?), email me.
- Should we drink juice? See what Donielle says about this hot topic, especially if you have kids. (p.s. We have juice maybe once a month around here, unless we’re having a little in our kefir soda pop, which is only 1/3 strength…)
- Thanks to Jo-Lynne for pointing me to this from Fathead about Statins. (I’d have caught it myself when it was more timely to post if he’d add an email subscription option to his site – I’m sorry, but I’m just not a feed-reader!)
- OK, this Rice Cereal Can Wait article started out so good, telling us how rice cereal is no longer considered the best first food for a baby since it lacks nutrients (not to mention that it’s a super-processed food), but then he had to go and say this: “In addition, saturated and trans fats should be limited, as should sugar, said Dr. Greer.” Why oh WHY would he continue to lump healthful, immune-system building saturated fats with trans fats and sugar?! Babies NEED those healthy fats so their brains can grow properly! (Thanks to @CrunchyMummy for finding and Tweeting this last week.) Read more about healthy foods for your baby.
Have a great week!
