Worth Sharing

Surprising fact: In 2011, the wealthiest Americans averaged giving 1.3 percent of their income to charity, in contrast, the poorest Americans donated 3.2 percent of their income. Kinda crazy, right? This article looks into why that is and shows you where the money goes - also an interesting fact.

Costco, Target, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Aldi, Cub, Byerly's, and the list goes on - the Twin Cities has A LOT of options when it comes to buying your food. I'm never quite sure what to get where for the best prices and quality, so I find lists like this one for what to buy at Trader Joe's helpful.

Interesting journal-type article that ran in the Daily Iowan - a newspaper out of the University of Iowa - about one woman's journey to decide to give her child up for adoption. Can't quite make up my mind on how I feel about it.

Fascinating article on the food industry and the science behind their processed food products. It's actually an excerpt adapted from book that comes out later this month, “Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us.”

Ever heard of Camel Camel Camel? It's a price tracker that monitors product prices on Amazon. Search through a product's price history to find it's lowest point and have email notifications sent to you when prices drop so you can get the best deal. I haven't tried it yet, but plan to for a few final baby items we need.

Made this Roasted Buddha Bowl over the weekend and Mike and I LOVED it. Served it over red quinoa and switched out dressing for this Tahini-Lemon one because I didn't have any cashews. I also traded the nutritional yeast for copious amounts of Romano cheese. While some may say that was a travesty, I say I didn't know what nutritional yeast was (beyond what Google told me - and it said it's kinda cheesey and kinda nutty...aka, cheese?) and we're not vegan so I made do. IT. WAS. AWESOME.

ps. Nothing against Nutritional Yeast, and if you're vegan or just trying to cut out dairy, I'm sure the recipe would still be awesome.
