Friends! Spring has FINALLY sprung in Stockholm! It literally happened overnight. These cherry blossoms are on my walk to work: on my way there I didn’t notice any, and on my way back they were in full bloom, and about 50 people were standing beneath the trees snapping pictures of the blossoms.

This week’s food, nutrition, and health article roundup is brought to you by Janet from The Taste Space! Says Janet: I am a physician, wrapping up my residency by day, and cooking and blogging about healthy, vegan, whole food-based meals by night. My meals range from Ancho Lentil Taco Salad Wraps, to Indian-Spiced Chickpeas and Kale to decadent Better Than Nutella Cheesecakes. I currently live in Toronto but will be moving to Texas. I don’t know whether to be more scared of their guns, or the Texan heat. In any case, I know I’ll be able to find vegetables.

Thanks for stepping in and curating this week’s links, Janet!


1. Ever wonder what it would be like to go grocery shopping with Michael Polland and Michael Moss?

2. Juice cleanses are pretty trendy right now. Are you curious about them?

3. Eating healthy on a budget. Cost per calorie or pound or nutrients? What wins as a bargain?

4. The scientific 7-minute workout. Is this legit?

5. The controversial science of sports drinks. Why not just make your own?
