My post title is a little misleading because I don’t actually have 5 things to share with you today… I only have 1, and that is that I’ve been on vacation this week :)
B and I have been enjoying time in the Caribbean since Sunday, and our trip includes stops to St. Thomas, Scrub Island and St. John.
Something funny is that we actually booked this trip earlier this year when we hadn’t been dating very long. I won’t tell you how long because I don’t want you to think I’m crazy ;) But we both love to travel and have enjoyed being together, and we felt like a tropical vacation was the perfect thing to look forward to. Most of our itinerary for this trip is centered around relaxation. B had to work on an important/huge work project that was due last month, and I have been knee-deep in private practice stuff, so we agreed to completely unplug this week. Don’t worry, this post is scheduled in advance!
Also, thanks again to Sarah for providing a guest post on Wednesday!
I’m looking forward to sharing details and photos about the trip with you guys next week! In the meantime, here are a few nutrition articles that have been floating around in the news recently.
Feds approve Y’s diabetes program despite drug maker opposition
It’s always perturbing to me when I think about how drug makers affect the lack of progression in disease prevention. I’m glad to see this project is moving forward because I really support a group atmosphere for improving health!
Studies Linked to Soda Industry Mask Health Risks
So, this study is about how independent studies find a link between soda intake and chronic diseases (like metabolic disease and diabetes), but there’s not a link found when the soda industry funds the study. Don’t you think that manufacturers should not be able to fund their own studies? Or that at least we should not view them as credible? Always pay attention to who is paying for research when you’re reading about a study because I definitely think that affects the findings.
Diet can impact migraines
I just wanted to share this article because I know a lot of migraine sufferers out there. This article was interesting to me because I really do not deal with nutrition counseling and migraine prevention much. Please note that MSG is a trigger for migraines! Just another example of how natural foods > processed foods.
That’s it for today I hope you guys have a great weekend!
Where was the last place you took a vacation?
Have you ever been to the Caribbean?
