Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a fantastic week. And, if you aren’t, I hope you find a little bit of happiness here at Cultivate Wellness.
I plan on writing a longer, more thorough blog post about my recent experience being interviewed on our local NPR station, but in the meantime I wanted to post the link so you can listen for yourself. Remember that post I wrote about the horrible swimsuit spread in Discovery Girls magazine? It created quite a bit of discussion, including with the host of our morning news show on Minnesota Public Radio. She decided to dedicate an entire show to the topic of body shaming in young girls, and asked to interview me. You can listen to the entire show here. I would absolutely love to hear your thoughts on it and keep the discussion going, so please share and comment!
Speaking of people struggling with body image issues, I read this piece, entitled Fat Dad: The Coffee and Cigarette Diet recently in Well section of The New York Times and it touched my heart. I thought it was lovingly written. So often we talk about women and body image, but it’s a good reminder that men struggle with this issue too.
Do you love potato salad as much as I do? I love it in all forms: with celery, with egg, with mayo, with vinegar. Dill, parsley, scallions, mint. It’s *all* good in my book. Here’s a healthy, delicious looking red, white and blue potato salad just in time for Independence Day.
Have a great rest of your week, whatever you have planned!
As always, I’d be so grateful if you shared my blog with people you think would like it, whether it’s on Facebook, Twitter, via email, or word of mouth (or all!).
