On Ask a Dietitian: Salt Cravings, Workout Food, and Things to Eat When I'm Stressed

@fabel Nutrition and exercise tips encased in feminism are great! But I agree with Kira-Lynn's disappointment at the weight loss advice, specifically. It is possible to have nutrition advice without promoting a goal that isn't possible for many and can be very damaging. I did not expect to see that here on the 'Pin.

On Every Meal Almanzo Eats in Laura Ingalls Wilder's Farmer Boy

This is the 1,008,645th time I have pondered on how much the Hairpin is in my head. Also, does anyone (other than me) have The Little House Cookbook? I'm shocked that they haven't re-released it with the new interest in eating local.

On Weight Gain, Orgasms, and "Everyone Hates My Boyfriend"

@cherrispryte I am married to a fat guy who eats cheeseburgers but he's been the same size since we started dating 4 years ago. I think he's super sexy and he has plenty of healthy habits so I'm not too worried about his nutrition. But gaining 50+ pounds over a few years is probably a sign of something else going on--either a BIG change in habits or some other type of health issue. She might be wrong to attribute it to the cheeseburgers if BF has always eaten like that, but I think she's right to be concerned.

I guess if the guy is super tall and big, 50 pounds over say four years could be more happy-relationship slide than serious issue, but I'm currently trying to dig myself out of a happy-relationship slide, so.
