Note Worthy

Hey friends! Happy Friday! Only one more week until Spring Break! And the good news is, it actually FEELS like spring outside!

Last year I went to the Tulip Vestival with my mom and sister. Pretty flowers everywhere! I took a whole bunch of cool pictures, then came home and made cards out of them online. It was fun!

So, I like to stay on top of what is being said in the “health world”. I get lots of e-mails with articles from various magazines and online resources. Some of them I read, some I don’t like, and some are winners! I thought I would share some of the “winners” that I found note worthy this week. So grab some veggies to munch on, sit back, and get your read on!

Emotional Eating – We all do it. I thought this was really interesting and had some good tips on how to acknowledge it and reverse it. There is more to it than just stopping eating the bad stuff.
Dark Side of Vitamin Water – This is why I tell people to just drink water. It solves LOTS of problems and you don’t ever have to deal with hidden sugars and false advertising. Water is just water!
Vegan-ish – I really liked this article. I’m not a declared vegetarian or vegan, but my eating is centered around veggies frequently. And I still like me some eggs and chicken. But can you still eat like a vegan? Check it out!
30 Healthiest Foods – I liked this because I like a lot of these foods! Haha! I eat/love 17 out of the 30. (Some of the foods I’m allergic too…so those won’t be happening any time soon.) What’s your score?

~Any fun plans for the weekend?
*I’m teaching a nutrition for athletes class tomorrow!

~Do you have a favorite health magazine or website that you check regularly?
*I really like Livestrong online…they have a variety of tools, articles and tips


  1. 7/30....thats pathetic I hadnt even heard of a lot of those!!

  2. I am going to try that 30 quiz next. You have so much info to offer!! I would love to take your class!

    Have a great weekend!!

  3. I want to come to your nutrition class too!! I NEEEEEEED to come to your class!!

    I love tulips! They are my fav! Mine are almost to bloom! I planted some in the back yard and then all winter long my dog has been laying on the spot where i planted them. I have been joking all winter that he is "hatching" my tulips!! And sure enough, here they are coming!!! So funny but when he is laying on my beautiful pink and red actual flowers and not the green stems i am gonna yell at him! =) wow, got off on a tangent there! Sorry!

  4. Yay! I think there were only about 5 of those foods I haven't had in the past few weeks! Some of the ones I don't eat are sardines (yuck), and a few things that are "foreign" to me, like chard and edamame (I've had it at restaurants, but never purchased/cooked myself).

    Relating to the Vitamin Water article--my biggest pet peeve is the marketing/consuming of sports drinks/foods to the regular public (vitamin water, gatorade, power bars, snickers marathon bar--that one might be the worst!). Haha. I don't even eat/drink most of that stuff unless my runs/rides are going over 2-3 hours!

    As for my weekend plans I had a fun four mile "race" yesterday, a birthday dinner last night, and am going on a long bike ride with my husband this afternoon! Yay!:) I hope you're having a great weekend!

  5. those pictures just make me want it to be spring. Only, it snowed this morning again...thanks for showing me it's out there!

  6. I'm totally with you on the vegan-ish article. Its a healthy variety of foods, nutrition, etc.
    Happy SUnday!

  7. Oh Gosh! I WISH it felt like spring around here! It's COLD and snowy....

    Great references. Thanks for sharing:) I love health and nutrition articles!!

    Definitely a fun weekend here. Baby shower, run with my sis and cheesecake which is NOT listed on the 30 healthiest foods list:) Hope you had a great weekend:)

  8. I'll do the quiz next! Your pictures are gorgeous! What a great idea to turn them into cards! I can't grow them around here, the deer eat them. We can grow daffodils though!
    I like veggies and try to center dishes around them, I just don't know if I could go full vegetarian. I'd like to try twice a week though!

  9. I just cannot get enough of your blog! I love it!! I liked that vegan-ish article as well, I definitely am and some eating preferences don't have a label.
    Feels like spring here too :)
    Can't wait to read more
