I hope everyone had a great week and is having a nice weekend. The weather here has been spectacular. Nick and I have been trying to take advantage by working in the garden, going on walks, and for Nick…riding his bike to work, which is now a 45 minute bike ride!
Just like last weekend, today I have rounded up the most interesting nutrition and health articles from the week (according to me!). Here they are in random order, starting with a quote;
“Let nothing which can be treated by diet be treated by other means.” -Maimonides
(I am always interested in learning new things about Autism. While it may not significantly impact my job, I do get a lot of questions about diet and autism, so the more I know the better!)
(I thought this was one of those no brainer studies, but the results were pretty interesting)
Treating Obesity in the Womb
(You know obesity is a serious problem when studies are being done to try to combat obesity before a child is even born. This is crazy!)
Kraft Slips Cauliflower Into Mac and Cheese
(Yes, you read that right, Kraft is now adding cauliflower it some of its mac & cheese. This cauliflower is freeze-dried and then made into a powder. It’s hardly as good for you as true cauliflower, and it’s truly defeating the purpose of teaching your kids about how to enjoy vegetables, however, I think it’s a step in the right direction. I actually want to try it!)
QUESTION: Did you read any other health and/or nutrition articles this week that were worth sharing?
