Happy Pi Day! Every March 14th, nerds like me around the globe commemorate that beautiful ratio of a a circle’s diameter to its circumference (~3.14159).
Speaking of annual commemorations, allow me to take this opportunity to look up from my smartphone and actually join the party 2 weeks late by mentioning that March is National Nutrition Month. This year’s theme is “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right.”
I wish it was “eating well” instead of “eating right,” but I appreciate the focus on enjoyment and the idea that healthy food can taste good. In keeping with that theme, on Wednesday I tuned in to a great webinar, Culinary Competency to Enhance Dietetic Practice.
Anyhow, hope you’re looking forward to a great weekend. Here are a few things I’m digging this Friday:
1.) Quick & easy fish dinner ideas—can’t wait to try some of these!
2.) Jillian Michaels Body Revolution—I was starting to get bored with my usual workouts and have been trying new classes and changing things up at the gym a little. After seeing Elise’s review, I decided to give Michaels’ DVDs a try. I’ve been hearing awesome things for a long time and have no idea why it had never occurred to me to see for myself. I only got the first DVD, but now I’m wishing I’d sprung for the whole set. I officially get the hype now. Or more accurately, my (very sore) thighs get the hype.
3.) This article on the psychology of FOMO
4.) This week’s Trader Joe’s impulse buys. Opposite ends of the spectrum, but room for both. I hope this brie doesn’t suck. I want to eat with sliced apple and feel all sophisticated.
5.) St. Patrick’s Day is Monday. Celebrate/detox/pre-tox with a green juice! Or a green smoothie—great with fresh mint leaves!
What’s on your mind this Friday? Any St. Patrick’s Day plans?
