I love a thoughtful link roundup as a way to discover the fantastic writing others are reading and sharing online. Here are my good reads from the week that was.
“And the scary thing I have noticed is that some people really feel uncomfortable around women who don’t hate themselves. So that’s why you need to be a little bit brave.”
Can we stop with the value-laden labels on food products? Guilty pleasure, sinful, indulgent, decadent, naughty. Nope, just food. No need to apologize for or justify what we choose to eat out of guilt.
Long form: A couple days ago, my brother-in-law asked a simple but illuminating question on Facebook — what’s your favourite book? I can never pick just one, so I offered three: something heavy, something light and something true. My non-fiction pick was Tamar Adler’s An Everlasting Meal. It prompted my re-reading of her book and a reminder why she’s such a fixture on my bookshelf. Part M.F.K. Fisher brilliance, part instruction manual — this is a bible, guide and gentle rally cry for feeding ourselves kindly.
