Reading: Since it's almost that (awful) time of the year again, when resolutions and weight loss gimmicks abound, take a moment for a scientific look at the pseudoscience of Dr. Oz: "For recommendations in The Dr Oz Show, evidence supported 46%, contradicted 15%, and was not found for 39%." Worse than 50/50 chance there folks. And since we believe in open access and sharing the real evidence, you can read the entire study on recommendations made by doctors on TV here.
(And if you haven't seen this brilliant John Oliver episode on the good doctor, stop what you're doing and watch it now).Cooking: Every drool-inducing recipe in The Forest Feast Cookbook. You should really pick this gem up. Gorgeous photos + watercolors, super simple yet delicious recipes. It'd make a great last-minute gift!
Moving: Because Ragnar SoCal Ultra training starts next week, I'm running. Luckily, Wyoming is one of the most gorgeous/stark places to do just that. Nevermind that I'm running in the middle of the road (thank god there is NO traffic). If anyone wants to drop some ultra training knowledge on my, I'm all ears. Please?
Detoxing: But not the kind that you think... (PS juice cleanse detoxes don't work. Period. End of Story. Good-bye. Stop. Read this). Yes, I'm actively cutting back on the alcohol a bit over the next two weeks, but much more importantly, I'm going to spend some serious non-computer, non-phone, digital detox time for Christmas. Because your brain needs a reset, and while I should do this more often, starting somewhere is better than never starting. I'll let you know how it goes. Who else is giving presence this holiday season?
Happy holidays from me to you! Leave a comment below about what you're loving these days!
