Weekend Reads

Morning! How was your week? It was a hectic one for our gang. There was a birthday, and a wedding, plus work was a little nuts thanks to Health Coach Week – more on that in a minute. There are a few sites I bookmarked to catch up on this weekend, but honestly all I can think about is getting through The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair. It’s a real page turner you guys, I highly recommend it if you haven’t picked it up.

On that note I’ll leave you with these, and I’m off to make coffee and find out who killed Nola Kellergan.

One of my favorite conversations to have with friends starts with: “If you could go anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would it be?” I constantly (at the moment) rotate between South Africa, Greece and Australia, and if we’re making lists then a whole bunch of these 52 places to go in 2015 would make the cut.

I admit, I have been avoiding running outside lately because it’s so damn cold. But this article on the crazy benefit to running in cold weather makes me re-think.

This, I love. Did you see the “famous gay dads” getting their daughters ready for school on Instagram? Well the snap went viral and this actual modern family landed themselves a sweet commercial spot with Nikon.

My brother gave me a risotto maker for Christmas, and I have yet to break it out. Having never made it before, I’ve been searching for a recipe to try and I think this one from Chow with brussels sprouts and lemon calls for the big debut.

As I mentioned, Integrative Nutrition is celebrating the first official Health Coach Week. It’s been a crazy week for our office, but really interesting to see it through on the back end – so many students and graduates have amazing stories of change and success. But one in particular stood out to me, and I thought it was worth sharing. Josh Perry, who I’ve had the pleasure of working with on this feature (and is one of the nicest guys around), has an incredible story. As a BMX rider, his journey to health began when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Catch the full feature here.
