    Thank you, Darya, for these links as always!

    I hope that the WSJ article doesn’t deter caretakers from enrolling their kids into dance classes. You are right to point out that the reasons for studying dance go far beyond exercise.

    Learning how to play most musical instruments does not burn too many calories, but who would discourage providing an opportunity to give children a chance to enjoy and express themselves, explore their artistic sides, and experience camaraderie in a band or orchestra performance? The fact that dance is an art form that happens to involve physical effort, discipline, strength training, and (in most cases) some cardiovascular activity is an added bonus. I’m also curious about the use of the accelerometer and if that captures the strengthening aspect of dance training.

    A lot of great articles this week

    I wonder what the Paleo community has to say about correlation with beans? More beans it is for me.

    I never thought of sending kids to dance classes for exercise… It’s really about experience/ skill… my daughter goes to gymnastics for that, take her to play in the park etc.

    And yeah I boast to my partner which woman you can find to make delicious shrimp and brocolli (stalk) quiche…. I also make stock with onion, garlic, carrot and squash peels etc

    Great collection of articles.
    I guess I should start cooking some beans now 🙂
    Diet and exercise are important, but so are being optimistic and enjoying life every day.

    May I just compare two sentences from the same article?

    “After spending a couple of hours with these women, I realized that the bread was only one ingredient in a larger group of benefits that the bread-making occasioned. The women also had to chop wood and stoke the oven. They had to knead the dough for 45 minutes (more exercise than going to the gym).”


    “Their kitchens were set up so that making healthy food was quick and easy.”
