    The bulimia study is very interesting. No doubt food becomes a both coping mechanism, but also a punishment mechanism. Bulimics tend to already have a negative idea of themselves and therefore may be “drowning” out self-reflection during eating/bingeing, but that self-reflection does return in a more perverse, negative fashion during and after purging.

    As the the Quartz article on what to teach our children about being happy: While I agree with most of the explanations in the article, I strongly disagree that the positive lessons she poses are not being taught by parents. The lessons she presents as exclusive of one another do coexist in the world, and in the lives of happy people. For example: I believe many parents teach their children to not only consider their futures, but also appreciate living in the moment; or to look out for oneself, while also having compassion. The article creates a number of “straw-man” arguments, and contributes to the already over-practiced and unkind trend of criticizing parents in the media, especially online.

    Good stuff. The guardian one especially rings true! I’m loving the new instagram trend of giving people really easy and compelling reasons and things to cook. They’ll post simple directions right under a mouth watering photo of brussels sprouts, and show a simple meal idea. Love it.

    Wondering – have you changed your diet at all during your pregnancy, or really have been religious about things like sugar? I wonder how I would eat if I were to be in the same spot one day!
