I feel like I haven’t done a favorites in so long, but now I’m back in the game. I can’t believe its October already. I also can’t believe I’m officially finished with my dietetic internship! I finished my Enrichment Rotation (which I split into 2, 2 week rotations) earlier this week! Now all that’s left is a whole lot of studying… But I absolutely loved my last two rotation and I’m very grateful my internship has an Enrichment, because I think I really found what I want to do with both (food blogging & eating disorder treatment, odd mix, I know). Anyways, here are a few things I’ve been loving over the last few months.
Physician’s Formula Organic Wear CC Cream
I tried this CC cream after hearing Allana Davison talk about the BB cream all of the time. For some reason I had a hard time finding the BB cream, so I settled for this one. According to online reviews the formulas are pretty much the same. This is my new go-to foundation. Its so easy, I honestly feel like it works best blending with my hands. Its got decent coverage and keeps my surprisingly matte for a non-matte foundation. Physician’s Formula is a little more expensive than most drugstore brands, but this foundation is really great quality.
Health at Every Size
When I was interning at the eating disorder treatment center, my preceptor let me borrow this book. She said that reading this book really opened her eyes and made her totally rethink nutrition. The book is all about intuitive eating, body acceptance, and scientific evidence that diets don’t work. It really is a totally different view on nutrition, which you definitely need to have when counseling eating disorder patients. I think any dietitian would love this book, because it could definitely be applied to general weight loss counseling as well.
I recently bought a Groupon for a three month subscription to UrthBox. UrthBox sends you 6 organic, non-GMO snacks each month. I’ve gotten some really good snacks. My favorite are the different snack bars from smaller companies I’ve never heard of before. I also got a really delicious, organic Twizzler type snack, it was sooo good! Anyways if you want to find a way to try some new, healthy snacks, I’d definitely suggest trying out UrthBox.
Most people who watch Narcos have probably already watched the new season, but if not, you need to get on that. The second season was sooo good, we watched it in about 4 days. And, bonus, I figured it would end after this season, but it seems like they set it up for a season 3!
Ok I got hooked on this show after I watched a random episode with a friend. Before I tell you what its about I’ll say that it sounds really stupid, but hear me out. So the show focuses on characters on Capitol Hill, from both parties. It takes place in present day so campaigning is going on and all of that. But then a brain eating bug comes to DC and starts infecting people and making them more extreme and angry but no one believes the main character that this bug exists. Its kind of like a satire on politics and why people are so crazy these days. Its pretty funny but its also got some drama and twists in it. You can watch season 1 on Amazon Prime!
Anyways thats what I’ve been loving lately. I’m hoping to get some more recipe posts up soon now that I have a little more time on my hands. I’m sure I’ll want a break from studying to do some cooking and writing too!
