What I'm Reading This Week

I've had a bit more time to just hang out and read recently. The farmers' markets haven't been as busy (I think everyone is on vacation!) which means I haven't had as much income, but it also means that I've had more free time for myself. Although I would love to have the income I had at the beginning of the farmers' market season, I am also relishing in this new freedom. Time is a gift that I never thought I'd cherish so much, but these days, any moment to do something other than bake or think about baking is a wonderful moment indeed.

So, here's what I've been reading this week:

Jen Neitzel's blog is about her recovery from her Celiac diagnosis and her quest for healthy living. It's inspiring, thought-provoking, and engaging.

This really does look like the "dreamiest chocolate ice cream" I've ever seen, as the title suggests. And it contains ingredients I tend to have around the house, so excuse me while I go make some.

Wow, sugar is just about going to "eff" this world up. But it's been doing that for centuries now.

As a gluten-intolerant human, I'm interested in the goings-on regarding gluten-free labeling. As a producer of gluten-free foods, I'm required to adhere to said labeling guidelines. This decision by the FDA makes it easier for those of us with gluten problems to know exactly what we can and cannot eat.

Yum! I'm currently unable to eat nuts of this kind (that's a post for a different day), and these chocolate protein bites look perfectly nut-free. 

Although the headline on this article is a bit difficult to understand, it's really a good thing that the rate of childhood obesity is declining finally!! 

D and I have always planned to be child-free, and although we love other people's children, we really love our life the way it is. This article is how I feel about saying one big no and saying lots of little yeses. 

Last but not least, I'm getting a new computer! I've had my current MacBook Pro for nearly 6 years, and it's been so awesome that it really saddens me to have to get a new one. On the other hand, I'm stoked to be able to download current software and actually receive updates again.

What have you been reading lately?
