Best links of the week including how to build a macro bowl, best running shoes for flat feet, affordable island getaways and the one ingredient to upgrade your food.
It’s been almost a month since I’ve shared my favorite recent reads with you. Oddly enough, besides personal posts (talking about things like lightening up on yourself or achieving goals) these are my favorite posts to write.
I had so many holiday links to share but they kind of aren’t relevant now. I always think I’m going to be productive and write when I’m in Pittsburgh but instead I focus on spending time with friends and family. It was particularly hard to come back west this time (but I missed my friends and SoulCycle and decent Mexican food).
If you live in a part of the country that is bitterly cold, you might want to check out one of these affordable island getaways.
This post basically had me planning a trip to Ojai.
Isn’t it a bummer when shows are like the best ever and then they totally jump the shark and you never even watch the series finale? (I never gave up on Lost or The OC, but totally stopped watching like 5 of these other shows.)
Sometimes we’re all over-worked and over-scheduled and burnt out and need to say no and take some “me time“. I try to leave one night a week open (at least!) to relax, catch up on freelance/blog stuff, make a healthy dinner… basically anything that isn’t an immediate obligation to be somewhere.
Totally loved the story behind Instagram filter names! I wasn’t crazy to think Reyes was about Point Reyes! Let’s just not name our kids Valencia if we’re reading this post, okay?
Running and Fitness
SoulCycle is partnering with Target to have pop-up studios in 10 cities: Atlanta, LA, Houston, Chicago, Minneapolis, Dallas, Nashville, Denver and Seattle. Make your account and be sure to ride if they’re in your city!
If you have flat feet, these are the running shoes for you.
Tina Muir is such an inspiration to me — not only because she’s an amazing runner but she keeps it real that elite runners do things like indulge and gain weight.
100% NEED these rainbow bagels in my life.
Were you like me and you binge watched Master of None in like a week? Here are 5 things Aziz and the show get right about food (that taco truck scene has been me numerous times).
Sometimes it takes one ingredient to upgrade your food… why have I never put miso on sweet potatoes?
I’m doing this goofy thing where I cook one new vegetable a month in 2016. I’ve already hit two for this month – turnips and parsnips. Spiralized Parsnips with Roasted Butternut Squash, Kale and Feta was so simple and so delicious.
All about the macro bowls. Hit your 2016 resolutions by making some of these delicious bowls.

DOES YOUR CITY GET A SOULCYCLE X TARGET POP-UP? (Why doesn’t SF?!) What TV show did you love and never finish? What do you think Aziz and Master of None got right about food?
