Now Trending – Best Links Week of 9.22
Words have had a little bit of trouble coming to me lately. I’ve been feeling a bit of writer’s block. This into is surprisingly difficult to write, so, here are the best links I’ve found to share with you all this week.
Travel + Lifestyle
I’m all about the wellness-retreat as vacation vibe. Lee from Fit Foodie Finds went to Mountain Trek in British Colombia for a week of detoxing so I now naturally want to go there.
I love Anthony Bourdain. He has my dream job. You should probably watch his show on CNN, Parts Unknown, if you don’t already. Loved this long read about how he has unwittingly become the future of news reporting just by traveling and eating.
Thought Catalog is usually 95% junk but they nailed the 8 Stages of Studying Abroad on the head.
I used to think I hated both beets and goat cheese but then realized I was crazy and both were delicious (well, I ate a beet to impress a boy last year and realized I loved them). What could be better than a beet and goat cheese stack?
I’m not so secretly obsessed with grits because I kind of grew up in the south and they are delicious. What could be better for fall than pumpkin bacon grits with poached eggs?
How did I miss these oatmeal chocolate chip breakfast cookie bowls from Half Baked Harvest?
I have some weird perversion with ultra-marathons. I’ll never run one (I mean that) but I seriously read or watch anything I can get my hands on about them. Emily from Sweat Once a Day just did one of the hardest 100-milers, Pine to Palm, in Oregon.
Not necessarily 100% running, but I did this medicine ball core workout by Pumps and Iron the other morning and it was so, so hard.
The 25 Worst Questions to Ask a Runner. There are 26.2 miles in a marathon every. time.
Chat with me:
Do you love Anthony Bourdain as much as me? Have you ever ate a food to impress someone you were on a date with? What do you do when/if you get writer’s block?
