Must-Reads of the Week (32)

December 24, 2017

Happy Christmas Eve! Since I won't get to blog over the next week as my family is headed to the beach and I'll be sans laptop, I wanted to pop in and quickly share some links to tide you over (no pun intended). Also to wish you and your loved ones the happiest of holidays! Stay safe, take care of yourself and remember to spread the love. 

Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year. This fun comparison of the various holiday meals around the world satisfies both that Christmas lover and foodie soul.

On a related note, a peek into what a modern Christmas in the US looks like even though I'm on the other side of the world for the holidays.

An article on the relationship between nutrition and pleasure

"When your meal comes with a side helping of guilt, it erodes whatever pleasure you would otherwise feel, because you don’t allow yourself to feel it."

Being around a a diet/weight/appearance-centered mindset when with family and friends right now has definitely been challenging. These two different posts on how weight gain and HAES fit together and altering the conversation away from diet talk this season from Robyn and Rachel respectively provide strategies on how to cope

Finally, how to be a little more alright in the new year c/o Buzzfeed

With that I bid you, a happy Christmas (or Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, winter, December, etc) to all and to all a good night (or morning or afternoon depending on where you are in the world right now)🎄🎁🎅
