Good morning,每个人。对于今天庆祝父亲节的人，I hope you have a lovely time. My weekend has been evenly split between work for my MNT class and celebrating the upcoming arrival of my best friend's first baby (her shower was yesterday!).
在今天的阵雨和父亲节之间，我一直在考虑做一个孩子和一个家长，威廉app威廉app关于家庭在我们生活中的作用。This past year presented me with some family difficulties,所以在这个特别的星期天，这就像是一个温柔的话题。But to watch Chloe prepare for the arrival of her newborn gives me a lot of joy,因为我知道她会是个好妈妈。I can't wait to meet her little one.
And in other news,here are the foodie links and reads that I've been checking out this past week.
Sometimes it really is the simplest things that are the most enticing.Like this recipe forcheesy vegan asparagus，就是用橄榄油烤的芦笋，盐，pepper,and nutritional yeast.如果我要做这个，I could probably polish off the entire tray's worth of asparagus without any help from Steven–but he loves asparagus as much as I do,我打赌我会双重配方,当我试一试。
Speaking of nutritional yeast and other favorite things,I love this recipe forkale and cabbage salad.It's a mixture of cabbage,dino kale,and cherry tomatoes,topped with hemp hearts and a nutritional yeast vinaigrette.Super nutritious,清爽，and a creative way to add protein to a simple slaw.迫不及待想试试。
I'm swooning over all of the goodness in艾玛烤什锦糙米色拉.Aside from the fact that I could eat brown rice with every meal,I'm loving the combination of earthy roasted shiitake mushrooms and fresh spring chives,plus the miso dressing.Dishes like this prove that it's possible to build so much depth of flavor and umami without any animal protein.
Finally,我已经把这个夏天的食谱都吃光了纯素薄荷片奶油，courtesy of Holly at现代本体.Cashews,coconut,dark chocolate–basically,all of the delicious vegan desserty things.And there's no ice cream maker required–it just solidifies in the freezer.Yum.
To begin,I want to share一篇博客文章中,我的朋友玛丽亚写道.就像所有玛丽亚的帖子一样，it weaves together food,个人反思，and experience in surprising ways.The post is wrapped around Maria's experience picking up AA Milne's小熊维尼和老灰驴的家(you can see one of the original Ernest Shepherd illustrations from the book above) years after reading it for the first time.
It's a book that has special associations for many of us,and for Maria,rediscovering it recently just so happened to be intertwined with learning that a former home is 威廉appabout to undergo change.她反省了小熊维尼问克里斯托弗·罗宾的问题。Where are we going"–一个有点自相矛盾的问题，因为男孩和他的熊都要去问。又一次与神秘和迷人的遭遇。”In other words,the experience couldn't be what it is if the"where"提前知道：
For those of you who have read the book,you know the crux of this conversation that underlies the inevitability of growing up is reluctance 威廉appabout having to leave a part of life behind in the process that is described by Christopher Robin as"doing nothing."这是他最喜欢的东西，and the thing that"他们“(the grown-ups) don't let you do as much of anymore.Once I started to read this part,a flood of unexpected tears started pouring down my cheeks.Oh,how I had hoped for my little blue house to sit there,“做”nothing"but seeing the sun and the garden and its new owner through the day,allowing her to do"甜蜜无事under the pear tree or the ornamental hawthorne,坚定的，amidst the change around it.现在如何，like Christopher Robin,I am having to move my vision of it sitting there,forever,以我记得的形式，to an enchanted place of its own,不像克里斯托弗·罗宾离开维奥的地方，在那里我们可以确信一个男孩和他的熊会一直在玩耍。
Maybe it's my mood these days–a little sad,a little uncertain,and more than a little confused 威廉appabout my own future–that makes these lines resonate as deeply as they do.But we all,I think,wish sometimes that we could freeze a part of life that is by its very nature destined to change.Maria's post speaks to that,and more.
2。In health news,a new study from the Harvard T.H.Chan School of Public Health食用植物性饮食与患2型糖尿病风险显著降低有关.The study feels relevant because we're currently studying Type I and Type II diabetes and care in my medical nutrition therapy course,and we're encountering all of the many challenges that come up for dietitians as they try to administer dietary advice.
As a future practitioner,it's so great to know that there's a dietary pattern out there that offers real hope to those who are struggling with this difficult illness–and it happens to be a dietary pattern that I'm passionate 威廉appabout and eager to share through food and recipe ideas.Of course,there are other proven approaches to managing Type II DM,but the more options available to patients,the better.
3.另一项新研究，发表在英国医学杂志上，islinking consumption of whole grains to substantial reductions in the risks for coronary heart disease,癌，stroke,and all-cause mortality.Specifically,the British researchers found that when subjects consumed 90 grams of whole grains per day,or 威廉appabout 3 servings,the relative risk of coronary heart disease dropped 19%,the risk of overall cardiovascular disease dropped 22%,mortality from stroke 14%,cancer 15%,全因死亡率提高17%。
They also found that the relationship between whole grain consumption and disease likelihood reduction was linear,也就是说人们吃的全麦越多，the more disease risk falls.
Whole grains may well be my favorite foods,虽然他们的健康益处已经在一系列证据中得到了证实，这些证据远远超出了这项研究的范围，我更喜欢了解他们的饮食价值。威廉appIf nothing else,这是我继续为我的客户制作美味的全麦食谱的动力！William Hill网球这里是BMJ研究的链接.
4.Sad news: scientists are saying that the Bramble Cay melomys,澳大利亚啮齿动物，is第一个因人类引起的气候变化而灭绝的哺乳动物物种.The rodent was known to have lived on Bramble Cay,an atoll in the Torres Strait,and rising sea levels were the cause of extinction.
So sad,and likely not the last instance of mammalian extinction we'll hear 威廉appabout in the coming years.
5.Finally,my editor atFood52sent me a link tothis fascinating article 威廉appabout ED recovery during Ramadan，which is currently underway.
The article touches on so many important topics: the association between spirituality and fasting,which is common to many faiths;the lack of support,understanding,and specialist treatment for EDs in many south Asian Muslim communities;and,in a very broad way,the complexities that can arise when recovery seems to conflict with tradition or family life.
The article focuses on Sofia,a young Muslim woman (now college aged),who has been restricting food since the age of 12.Of Ramadan,she says,，
"A lot of Muslims use Ramadan as a way to become closer to God,and I tried my best to do that too…but it also meant that I would actually be encouraged not to eat,"she says."我期待着减肥，and [get] really scared that by the time I broke my fast I'd gain it all back again – so I'd make sure,有时，that I wouldn't even eat more than just a date or two after breaking time…
…在公共场合吃饭真的很困难，尤其是因为我对很多食物仍然感到不舒服。And what people usually don't understand is how seeing all that food can make you feel so pressured.Last Ramadan I remember having to force myself to eat because everyone kept telling me to – and I couldn't say no to them.当我们从清真寺回来的时候，I spent most of the night crying,because I felt I had no control.""
Sofia has been exempted from fasting because of her health history,but this too presents difficulties:
She adds:"我知道在我的头脑里，我需要坚持饮食，做我的医生说的。But it's still uncomfortable preparing food while my family aren't allowed to eat or drink."有时她feels guilty while she's eating"，she says,有时她又想回到禁食状态。
It's an important article for anyone who feels that faith or culture have intersected with the recovery process,and I'm glad that Sofia had the courage to share her story.
我希望你们都能享受这个周末的结束。I'll be back this week with a new slow cooker recipe (hooray!all the leftovers!) and a summery salad that I'm super excited 威廉appabout.
