    I read the Vitamin D article. I am always having a Vitamin D deficiency even though I take a multivitamin and 2000 extra IU of Vitamin D everyday. I could easily add more fish to eating plan. - 7/11/2011   9:31:23 AM

    I love Oh She Glows - she always has such great, healthy recipes. I am not such a fan of Hungry Girl - I find a lot of the things she uses in her recipes, while low in calories, aren't things I want to eat. A lot more chemicals and more processed type of foods.

    But SP is great in providing us with options - so that all of us can find something we will like! - 7/10/2011   5:30:56 PM

    The bean dip recipe sounds good too, but sadly, I can't eat beans anymore because of my gastroparesis. - 7/10/2011   4:43:29 PM

    Great variety in this week's selected articles. During the recession / recovery, you may not think that people eat out, but the indirect reference to Blizzard (TM) [DQ] - aka dessert smoothie - and specifically to Starbucks (TM) - suggests that restaurant dining is part of many people's weekly routine.
    I looked at the Starbucks article to get ideas for what I could do for eat at home, and to be reminded of what to avoid (extra salt, cholesterol, saturated fat) to keep my own recipes "lighter" (without using a specific list of planned ingredients).
    The Blizzard article I had to read (appeals to the child in me); and I had to chuckle with that author's reasons for putting it together. Seems a pretty sugar intensive cooling dessert, but that's just IMHO.
    I thoroughly felt swept away by the "Break out of your exercise rut" article. Movement works to balance out the "calories in" only when you actually do it -- so I welcome ideas that let me vary the "how" or slightly change the "what".
    For me, a great combination of articles, even if you need to be a tad bit discriminating about the nutrition balance (or lack) in some of the meals.
