Before I get into this Friday’s Quicklinks – a couple of notices for the Sydney-based readers. I am running some new seminars and programmes through my clinic in Gladesville.
Seminars and programmes
Over the next couple of months I will be running three separate seminars:
- How to cook vegetabes so they taste great – Saturday 6 February 3.00pm – 4.30pm
- The GI (glycemic index) – Saturday 20 February 3.00pm – 4.30pm
- Food labels: traps and tricks – Saturday 6 March 3.00pm – 4.30pm
- The cost for each is $20 or book into all three and get a 10% discount
- For more details click here
I’m also running a four-week group programme called Eat Well, Feel Great – again there’s more information on the Balance2health website.
To make a booking for any of these then send me an email.
Now onto what I’ve been reading:
- New year’s resolutions: I really like the approach to new year health resolutions in this article by Leslie Beck. Don’t take an all-or-nothing approach to food and exercise, instead concentrate on more gradual and modest changes.
- Pumpkin soup: I can’t get Ganga’s Pumpkin soup with red peppers out of my head. It’s one of the most gorgeously coloured soups I’ve ever seen and I’m imagining it would taste delicious.
- Weight gain: Marion Nestle writes on How many extra calories cause weight gain. While recent research also suggests most of this weight gain happens over Christmas.
- Noodle soup: Another soup recipe, but this one for Soba noodles in broth with spinach and shiitakes. It’s a Japanese inspired soup flavoured with seaweed, sake and mirin.
- Attitudes to eating: This piece from Weighty Matters was written pre-Christmas, with the festive season and holidays in mind. But it’s still really worth looking at. What’s your attitude to social eating? Are you a wrist-slapper or a write-offer?
