The latest happenings at Small Bites, this week’s Link Love, and Menu Plan Monday!
Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a great weekend and are geared up for a nutritious and delicious week ahead. We’re heading out of town to go skiing at the end of the week, so this is a short week in the kitchen for me, but we still have some yummy meals planned.
Check out this week’s Link Love and menu below, but before you do, have you taken the Nutritioulicious Reader Survey yet? If not, please take a few minutes to fill it out. I’d love to know what you want to see and read more of here and how I can make Nutritioulicious your go-to place for family-friendly healthy recipes and nutrition information.
Feel free to email me directly if you have specific requests or personal meal planning and recipe development needs.
In Defense of ‘Healthy-ish’ @ Abby Langer Nutrition
⇒ I definitely consider my diet healthy-ish: I eat a mostly healthy diet, but make room for the treats and less healthy choices I sometimes want to have.
Live Healthy Without Becoming Obsessed @ Fresh Fit & Healthy
⇒ I know a lot of people who go to extremes when it comes to how they eat. The dos and don’ts in this post are great tips to keep you even keeled.
What Is Coconut Milk? @ Go Dairy Free
⇒ The answer isn’t as straightforward as it may seem. Alisa has a great guide – you definitely want to check it out if you use any form of coconut milk.
The Paleo Diet – Good or Bad New Years Resolution? @ Abbey’s Kitchen
⇒ The Paleo diet is certainly trendy, but is it a good one to follow? Abbey sorts through the science. (And if you want my opinion, skip this diet!)
5 Ways to Eat Less Processed Food @ Katie Cavuto, RD
⇒ Katie’s tips are great, but keep on reading to put them into action with her meal prep cheat sheet.
Roasted Garlic Turmeric Parsnips @ Bucket List Tummy
