Link-tastic Friday

Cute little toes:



Webwide coolness:
  • We eat a lot of butter in this house.  A lot.  Here's an article on five fats that are important and healthy to keep in your kitchen. (Thanks to my friend Mimi for the link!)
  • With four children and lots of friends, it can be terribly hard to keep our family schedule straight.  After wrestling with various written methods, wall calendars, etc., I have finally discovered Google Calendar.  I granted Greg's Google account access to the calendar as well, so now we can both edit it, no matter where we are, and can even access it from our phones.  It even gives pop-up reminders on my desktop for upcoming events.  Genius!


Food (savory):
Food (sweet):
  • I don't usually go for low-fat anything, but this Low Fat Lemon Curd looks like it might be a little less heavy and a little more zippy than the traditional kind.
  • I made savory Quinoa once, but Greg wasn't impressed with the grain, so I haven't made it again.  However, this Breakfast Quinoa with Toasted Coconut Almonds and Fresh Mango sounds like it might have to be my breakfast sometime very soon.
  • I have a weakness for creamy fruit salads, and this one looks both simple and delicious (via Mel's Kitchen Cafe).

Wow! the healthy home economist is a great blog! I've never seen it before. I'm going to be checking in there often.

Another great brand of Cod Liver Oil that we sell at our chiropractic office and that I take everyday: Nordic Naturals (from their website): "The fish oil that started it all... Nordic Naturals offers the only 100% Arctic cod (Skrei) liver oil on the market. No fish body oils or synthetic vitamin or additives are ever used. No other brand can honestly make the same claim. Over the past decade, we have perfected our three-step Gold Standard system that allows Nordic Naturals Arctic Cod Liver Oil to test at 10 times lower than the limits set by the strict Norwegian Medicinal Standard and European Pharmacopoeia Standard for purity and freshness. Vertically integrated from catch to finished product, we deliver the freshest cod liver oil in the world."

And it tastes great!
