Weekly Link Love

The internet is  a vast and interesting place. During the week I spend lots of time perusing websites and blogs in search of interesting information, recipes and entertainment. Here are the links that I really liked, or at least found interesting, from my trip through the inter-webs. What were your favorite links from around the web this week? Share them in the comments below.

Know Your Ingredients

Having given up refined white sugar I’ve been using honey as my substitute sweetener in any recipes calling for a little sweetness. This, very researched, post from Mark’s Daily Apple answers the exact question: Is honey good for you?

Recipes

After a sweaty dance class I usually turn to my home-brewed, fruit infused, kombucha to replenish electrolytes and restore fluids. This alternative to sports drinks seems like another great solution to the chemical and sugar filled beverages that are often marketed as “healthy”.

I’ve linked to this graham cracker recipe in other posts, but I love it so much that it deserves its own spot on the link love page. I’ve made them so many times that I have committed the recipe to memory (there aren’t very many ingredients). Since the flour it calls for can be hard to come by I often sub it out for sprouted organic spelt flour, leave off the sugar sprinkle and add the cinnamon to the batter. If I wasn’t on a diet I could easily eat these daily and never tire of them.

Totally made ’em and totally love ’em. Will make these again!

Parenting

As a parent you become frighteningly comfortable talking about your child’s potty habits, and that can be a good thing. Kids BMs can tell you a lot about what’s going on in their tiny guts and this post gets down and dirty with the stuff you want to know.

We’ve been in the “toddler” phase for a while now and reading about what’s normal always makes me feel better when things get a little hairy.

Living

It’s cold where I live, and we’re coming out of one of the coldest months I can remember. These ideas for staying warm work.

#5 in this article is a sure-fire truth.

Because It Feels Good

Said it before and I’ll say it again, I love Quinn Cummings.

Fashion and thrift? Yes please! Bea over at the Zero Waste Home wore a single men’s shirt for a whole summer and photographed all of the awesome outfits she came up with. This lady is rad.

Finally, who doesn’t love puppies? Council House Goldens breeds beautiful pups in a sustainable and healthy way, and now they have a blog. This pup is indeed a sweet little Tiny Dancer.
