It may be May 1st, but here in Connecticut it’s a chilly 45 degrees and cloudy and gloomy outside. So what better day than to post my Pineapple Sunshine Smoothie? Granted, yesterday was supposed to be Smoothie Saturday, but I decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather yesterday and save this post for today.
In other news, I finally have my little garden all planted! We have two tomato plants, two strawberry plants, parsley, basil, red leaf lettuce, and mint. They seem to have taken root well, and I’m hoping they’ll thrive even though it’s been pretty chilly lately! But if any of you have any good gardening tips, I’m all ears!
So here’s what caught my eye on the webs this week:
1 // I finally have my own channel on Nom!! I’ll be hosting an awesome, LIVE cooking show this Tuesday at 10:00 AM EST. Be sure to tune in! :)
2 // My instagram crush of the week!
3 // A really important article on ways people can be perpetuating mental health stigma, without knowing it. Mental illnesses are no different than any other sort of bodily illness, but you don’t hear people making fun of someone with diabetes for taking insulin. That’s why mental health education and discussion is so important.
4 // This roasted strawberry rhubarb agua fresca is making me dream of summer <3
5 // For someone with Italian heritage, pesto is pretty much its own food group. Right now I’m drooling over this Tuscan kale and pumpkin seed pesto!
6 // So Whole Foods is starting a new line of grocery stores called 365 by Whole Foods Market, geared towards more budget-conscious shoppers. I’m really excited about this new business model, in hopes that it will make healthy food more accessible to more people!
7 // On why winter shouldn’t have a monopoly on comfort food + a comforting spring salad. All the yums.
8 // Did you guys enter to win Herbs and Spices: The Cook’s Reference yet? The giveaway is open until next week!
Hope you all have a lovely week!!
