It Happened This Week: Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Buffet, the Zen of Laundry & the Heirarchy of Food Needs


How’s this for a fab dessert for your July 4th fest?  Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Buffet celebrating those wonderful fruits that are at their best this time of year.  From fellow dietitians Janice & Liz whose website is dedicated to helping busy families eat better.

“The Price of Beauty,” Jessica Simpson’s reality show about body image, was just picked up by VH1 and will air next fall.

We like how one Examiner columnist finds mindfulness in her everyday chores in “The Zen of Hanging Laundry on the Line.”

Where are you on the heirarchy of food needs?  Getting your needs met at every level is important to achieving your desired physical, intellectual or spiritual outcome.

The Wall Street Journal looks at the latest research and asks “Does Marriage Make You Fat?”

Another survey confirms healthy doesn’t win when it doesn’t taste good.  Nation’s Restaurant News “breaking news”:  “Diners say taste outweighs health when ordering.”

Another twist on mindfulness: Blackberry etiquette tips from The Clutter Diet Blog.  Listen up, Marsha! (I recently became a BB owner, much to the dismay of at least one of my girlfriends as I constantly check my email.)

    Marriage makes you fat? haha, I think just dating makes you fat. Or I guess not fat, but I gained five pounds when I started dating NIck (although, I’ll admit I needed to gain five pounds, so it was good!).

  2. Sagan says:

    That hierarchy thing is interested. But I’m still kinda hung up on the chocolate-dipped strawberry buffet, yum.
