This is the first post in my new series I’m calling These are a Few of my Favorite Things. There are a million different topics my clients ask me about, from what grocery stores to shop in to what protein powders I like to what magazines I get my recipes from or what food documentary they should watch next, and I want to share all of these things with you.
This week, I’m going to let you in on my favorite blogs… but I have a confession first. Even though I blog myself, I’m not a huge blog reader. I do more blog writing than blog reading because when I do have time to read for fun, I prefer it to be in a book on my couch and not on a screen sitting at my desk. That said, there are a few select blogs that I check frequently:
Tim Ferriss wrote the 4-Hour Workweek (a book every single working or unemployed American should read). His ideas are innovative and out-of-the-box and his writing is entertaining, informative and opinionated without being annoying. He has introduced me to so many invaluable tools and ideas I use in my business and every day life.
Reading his blog will make you a more productive (and smarter) person. Some of my favorite posts from Tim have been:
- Soylent: What Happened When I Stopped Eating For 2 Weeks
- 12 Rules for Learning Foreign Languages in Record Time — The Only Post You’ll Ever Need
- How I Blog — The 21 WordPress Plugins That Keep Me Sane
Armed with sarcasm, registered dietitian Beth Mack takes the most popular food fads and nutrition myths head on. Some of my favorite posts:
- Debunking the Paleo Diet
- Eating Fat Does Not Make You Fat
- Dietary Supplements: I could think of better ways to waste your money
Written by fellow dietitian and OSU grad Lindsey. She faithfully posts healthy, wholesome recipes and speaks candidly about life with her hubby, her adventures as an RDN and staying fit through her pregnancy. I’ve made lots of her recipes and also steer my clients her way when they’re looking for new ideas but what I love most about The Lean Green Bean is the amazing resources. Lindsey posts weekly Bean Bytes where she shares the best links on the internet she’s found that can range in topic from workouts to recipes to life in general. She also does some amazing giveaways!
