Clearly I have commitment issues since I’m posting the 2nd installment of Weekly Links on Monday instead of the weekend. I guess it’s not much of a series if I do it once and miss the next one, huh?
Truthfully, I’m not sorry. Yesterday the sun was shining—and I’m glad I enjoyed a great Bikram class first thing in the morning, had some lunch downtown while watching marathoners cross the finish line, and watched the movie, Her, with Mark. Time spent unplugged from the internet is time well-spent—though that doesn’t mean I love you guys any less.
Even so, I wanted to share a few recipes and articles that caught my eye last week.

Who says salad has to be boring? With this gorgeous salad, it’s easy to “eat the rainbow.”
While I do think that sugar addiction is a real thing, I think it’s more of the “all or nothing” attitude and setting the wrong types of diet/health-related goals that lead so many to fail.
I’m not sure whether I agree with his overall premise, but it’s encouraging how the atheist community has embraced him and given him a hand.
52 Places to Go in 2014 via New York Times
This is quite the well-rounded list—including some places I’d never have thought to add to my “must see” travel destinations.
Why You Should Walk (Hint: Not for the Exercise) via Huffington Post
This is exactly why I’m so obsessed with my daily lunch-break walks. Being outdoors is calming and it refreshes me for the rest of the day.
