Links From the Dog Days of Summer

Link LoveThe past week has been very busy. I have been fighting a cold most of the last week and took a few days for rest where I stayed at home and did nothing… except write of course. That I can comfortably do while curled up under a blanket with a tissue in hand fortunately.

As always I wanted to take a minute and send a shout out to a few posts from others that caught my attention this week. Some of these writers I never would have come across without participating in the carnivals (which I have referenced below). If you’ve got some spare time click through and give these writers for a spin. I thought they were worth my time.

Carnivals I participated in:

Notable posts from the carnivals that I participated in this week:
  • Experiment: Gerbus presents Antioxidants: What Are They? – This article describes exactly antioxidants are. It’s academic yet readable and very relevant considering everybody under the sun knows that antioxidants are good for you but nobody really knows what they are or what they do.

  • Campaign For Real Health presents a dissertation on How to Choose Real Foods – I say dissertation because man, this is comprehensive. Charles lays it all out on what real foods are and which foods aren’t. It’s a great educational read and based on the findings of Weston Price.

  • The Senior Walking Fitness Blog presents Walking For Weight Loss and A Longer Life – This post resonates with the goals I have for my life and the values I have on this blog. Age should not be an excuse for a sedentary lifestyle and walking is a perfectly acceptable way to stay healthy and add years to your life.
If you take a look at any of these writers let them know what you think. And thanks again to you, my reader. I hope I can keep churning out the quality content that keeps you coming back for more.
