We’ve established on previous episodes that MizFit is not a dietitian.
Bottom line? I often disagree with dietitian-esque recommendations (especially on protein intake)—-except for this time.
Much to my surprise I wholeheartedly agree with all of these and especially the fast food one.
(to know me in real life is to know that my Toddler Tornado thinks that Chickfila is a food emporium know for its fruit. this isnt my doing either—simply her tastebuds.)
All Im getting at is that it’s so easy now to go to fast food restaurants & eat healthy or, if it’s a treat day, NOT & still indulge in moderation.
Ever seen Mark’s Daily Apple?
His quite information-packed blog is pretty famous in the health blogger community & (*cough* unlike someone we know *cough*) he does his food posts in HIGH STYLE.
I tell myself that he employs clip-art (you know, so I feel better about not providing you with a Muffin in a Moment photo) but something makes me think otherwise.
Check out this post about what you should chomp on *today* to feel better *tomorrow* (or, if you’re not in the mood, just gaze longingly at the photos as your MizFit did).
and LinkLastly another cool site that’s new to me.
Noshtopia (love the name).
Her post about food pyramids is a really well written comparison and definitely got me thinking about which I prefer/most closely adhere to.
While I pretty much do a mish-mash of em all—all if forced to choose just one I think it would be the Harvard Healthy Eating pyramid.
Im all for exercise as the base/foundation of everything & adore the notion of processed white
crap stuff to be eaten sparingly.
I just dont think that eating much processed white is good for us & that was before I read the study on refined carbs increasing chances of age related macular degeneration.
I shall climb down off my soapbox and send you her way. Stephanie says it far more poetically than I.
It does all beg the question: which food pyramid most closely resembles your current way of life?
Is there a different one/a combined one to which you aspire?
And now why you’re really here:
This week’s freebie? VERY cool and, as usual, I have to say how generous people truly are.
Ive always been intrigued by the notion of chakras (this is a really neat test regarding how open each of your chakras are. check it out if you have a moment) and this week we have a chakra soap freebie.
For just the price of one comment below the winner gets to select the chakra and scent of her choice.
(the number of scents offered amazes this non-soap creator.)
me? Id pick the 7th chakra/jasmine scented.
I can always use additional higher reason love and awareness & word on the street is that jasmine has a calming effect on its sniffer.
MizFit is all about the calm love.
