Ingredients for…A Slow Weekend

Weekend Essentials 1

Happy Friday, my friends! I can’t believe this week has gone by so quickly again, is life ever going to slow down? It’s been a good week though, so I’m not complaining. We finally had better weather, so I spend most of my time outside (yay!). I hope you enjoyed the first week of blog posts over here, now I can definitely understand why so many people love blogging so much!

Today I want to share with you some great and helpful things I found around the web.  All the things  you need for a great weekend, books and blogs to read, movies to watch, things to do, you get the deal. Here are some essential ingredients for a relaxing weekend:

Blog to Read: Considering that I am thinking about a healthy lifestyle so much at the moment, I am loving the new blog by Allie Lehman and Mary Trenda (whose a nutritionist!), Considering You. It concentrates on healthy food choices, especially on a switch to a gluten-free lifestyle. At the moment I’m not really considering going gluten-free, but nevertheless there are tons of information on vitamins or other components of our food, fresh recipes and challenges to change your own life.  A good way to spend your Saturday  morning browsing (maybe out in the sun?)

Movies to Watch: I didn’t catch More than Honey in cinema, but it came out on DVD on March 15. It deals with the honey industry (from a small bee-keeping farm run by a family for years to big corporations) and how the fact that more and more bees are dying will affect us in a terrifying way. I can’t wait to see it, the pictures are supposed to be beautiful (even though the message is so harsh). Watch the trailer here.

Food to Eat: I’m all about trying to eliminate artificial additives from my diet at the moment (which is so hard!), so I’m on the look-out for easy recipes to make my own stuff. This weekend I would like to try making my own ketchup (there’s also not as much sugar in it as off-the-shelf ketchup, another big bonus!).

Project to Try: Useful (I’m not a big fan of felted mug cozies and stuff like that) and pretty projects are good in two ways: You can re-use something you would have thrown away otherwise and you save money. This project is great for spring. I really wanted to wear polka-dotted shorts last year but they were always too expensive, now I want to make my own (although I think I will use old jeans shorts instead).

Thing to Do: Since it’s the first sunny weekend in a long time, I’ll be spending most of it outside! I also planned on doing some Spring cleaning, we’ll see where that goes…

What are you up to this weekend?
