Yum, hasselback butternut with tahini and walnuts!
If we say hasselback potatoes, we’re guessing that a few more than us have childhood memories. We have come up with hasselback beets, sweet potatoes, celeriac, squash, apples and pears but today we are sharing our favorite fall version! Get the recipe here.
How does shame affect us?
This article is about one of our basic feelings that can be difficult to get in touch with. It is often so ingrained in us that we do not even notice that we have it, carry it and live our lives under its power. We’re talking shame. And about why, in time and out of time, we defend, explain, enlarge, reduce, blame and assert ourselves. All to protect ourselves from others not seeing or understanding that we are inadequate. That we have shortcomings. That we are imperfect. Read more about this here.
Mushroom soup with parsnips and thyme
This week, one of our dear guest writers shared a mushroom soup recipe made in accordance with the autoimmune diet, AIP. You can use button mushrooms or the larger portobello or even wild mushrooms like black trumpet in the recipe. The parsnips provide a great dietary fiber and vitamin C, and also make the soup more filling. You can find the recipe here.
Menopause and the different phases
Things are starting to happen in Sweden in the menopause jungle – The National Board of Health and Welfare has been commissioned by the government to produce a report on what menopausal care looks like and how it can be changed, and Uppsala University has also just started a world-unique project to look at how women’s mental health looks during the reproductive years, which is a huge step forward. But at the same time, there is still great confusion around menopause and the different phases – the perimenopause, the menopause and the postmenopause. Here, Katarina Wilk sorts out the different phases once and for all.
That was all of the exciting reads for the week, have a lovely rest of your week!
