Hey Sunday! You always creep up just a little too fast for my liking. Our house has been struck down with snotty noses and heavy chests this weekend. Quite a sad state of affairs, really! Hopefully this isn’t the way of it in your part of the world.

I’ve mixed my links a little different today – hope you enjoy.

My favourite savoury eat: Michelle Tam of Nom Nom Paleo fame has recorded a video of one of my fave NNP recipes – it’s her sister’s Green Chicken. Get. On. It. (and save leftovers to totally pimp your lunchbox salad)

My favourite sweet eat has got to be these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies from The Healthy Chef. I haven’t made them yet but I think their number will come up this afternoon 🙂

My favourite must-do experiment is this homemade whey & cream cheese. I don’t do much dairy at all (it makes me all sneezy and congested if I overdo it) but trying it fermented could be the ticket. And excitingly, I’ll have leftover whey to make a deluxe sauerkraut #foodnerd

My favourite feel good read comes via Rock n Roll Bride. As a soon-to-be bride, the question of “but what size do you think you’ll be on your wedding day” has definitely come up from the dressmaker. It might feel like you need to go on a diet of air and water to have the perfect wedding but… I think I’m with Kat on this one.

My favourite thing to listen to this week has been Steph from Stupid Easy Paleo‘s new Harder To Kill Radio podcasts. She chats with Mel Joulwan of The Clothes Make The Girl. You may also know Mel from her freaking awesome cookbooks Well Fed 1 & 2. Spoiler alert: she reveals to Steph that she’s working on new stuff #fangirl

My favourite inspirational is this episode of Marie TV. I know I bang on a lot about my love for Marie but seriously, she always has a message I need to hear. My big takeaway from this was: Don’t talk your idea to death – you’ll fool yourself into thinking you’re making progress. #mindblown

My favourite words about words come via a friend of Ellen Fondiler:

“Anything you’re obsessed with or preoccupied by is worth writing about. No one will pay the same sort of devoted attention to it that you will; no one will bring it to life the way you can, because of that devotion; no one will see it the way you do, or live it or love it or feel it as you do. If it occupies that much space in your heart, it’s best to get it out, tell its story. It will resonate with others and have a life of its own.”

My favourite mini-investment of late has been contributing to the Death to Stock Roadtrip fund. Love their work. The title photo on this post is from their Minneapolis stop off.

Enjoy what’s left of your weekend.

x Liz
