Lovely Food

TGIF!  Here’s my weekly roundup of lovely food and posts I saw this week in the ‘sphere.

I’ve been watching food, not the Royal Wedding.  I think I’m the only person who hasn’t been watching it, but reading blogs has been akin to Wedding Cliff’s Notes.  I can catch up on the whole thing just by reading blogs and in 10 minutes not hours.  Perfect for me.

Enjoy the food!  Or the wedding.

Great Reads of the Week:

Angela’s Grain of Salt Post addressing reader questions about body-image, weight, and eating topics.  Comprehensive, beautiful.

Gena’s post on Eating Disorder “Types” in rebuttal to a Kevin Gianni article

Nicole of La Buena Vida’s photography of Tulum

So many posts, so many blogs, so many great recipes!

There is never enough time to read it all, get to it all, comment on it all, or make it all (unless you are feeding a football team) but the blogosphere is so inspiring.

Thanks for chiming in on my last post about At Home Workouts: DVDs and Podcasts and whether it’s a yay or nay for you, and why. Lots of great comments and split thoughts on it all.  Some of you really love DVDs and workouts you can download and it was fun to hear your favorites and what workouts you’re loving lately.

Also loved your workout clothing loves.  I always like hearing what everyone’s go-to apparel is.  I hate breaking the bank on workout clothes and refuse to do it!  No $50 sports bras and I only own one pair of $100 Lululemon pants.  Nice, but I will never pay that kind of money again for one pair of pants. I liked hearing what you wear to get your sweat on with.


1. What’s on your agenda for the weekend?

I am working, workout out, working around the house, working in the kitchen.  Did you catch a them there? But it’s all good.  Hard work never hurt anyone.

2. Have you been watching the Royal Wedding Coverage?

No, and I don’t really care!  Gasp, I know.  What can I say, I love the Kardashians and Real Housewives (E! and Bravo are where it’s at for me and my DVR) and I read blogs, and after that, I have no time for extra tv watching.

3. Have you seen any recipe posts or food posts this week or recently that inspired you or have you made anything lately that you’re especially proud of?

This week, I am proud of my Chocolate Coconut Kale Chips

…and my Chocolate Coconut Cashew Butter

…but I am inspired by everyone else’s food and recipes, daily!

  1. On my way back to San Diego from Boston as we “speak.” Hope the weather has improved? :)
    I didn’t watch the Royal Wedding either….just clips here and there on TV.
    Look at all that food porn. Wow! I agree…so many awesome blogs, so little time.

  2. I’m exactly like you, I don’t care about the wedding. It’s fun to look at some pictures but not worth getting up at 4 or 5 AM for. I also rather read blogs and watch Real Housewives: new york and OC (they should make a SD one, La jolla?) and Bethenny Ever After. It’s a nice break from the craziness of college!

  3. I didn’t watch either. Don’t care.

  4. Well I had a relaxing weekend planned, but it looks like I’ll be headed to Urgent Care instead. I think I have some sort of infection in my throat and I would really like it to stop hurting me!

    I have only seen things about the Royal Wedding in the blogosphere. I just can’t muster any interest in the wedding of two people I don’t know. I just don’t care!

    You’re so right, so many blogs, so little time. The things people come up with are amazing!

  5. OMG – cilantro lime rice!!! I am heading over to that site now!!!

    I didn’t watch the wedding, nor see any coverage, but now I kind of wish I did watch it.

  6. thank you for the lovely shoutout friend – youre the best!!
