stockholm not dark // the muffin myth

We’re officially out of the circle of darkness! Whooohoo! I love biking home in the not-totally-dark these days. Also, even after almost four years it still gets me that I bike past a royal palace (albeit a totally ugly one) on my way to and from work.

What’s good around the web is a weekly series where I share some of what I’ve been reading around the web. Each week I post links to five nutrition related articles, good recipes, and just general good reads. I hope you enjoy it! If you’ve got at article or recipe you’d like to see featured, please email me.


1. Our foods, our moods.

2. Are you getting enough of these diabetes preventing foods in your diet?

3. The WHO says we should cut our sugar intake to less than a can of coke per day. Cool. But please don’t accomplish that by switching to artificial sweeteners – as regular readers know, that’s the topic of my thesis work, and what I’m uncovering is crazy.

4. But this study (funded by Coke, so take with a grain of salt) says that fructose isn’t the problem.

5. Why the energy balance equation leads to flawed approaches in obesity management and treatment.

And in the world of veggie burgers that are turning out much better than mine did, check out Kellie’s Provencal Lentil and Quinoa Burgers.
