Link Love – Week of August 31, 2015

Dietitian views on cleansing diets, basic meal planning tips, and a peanut butter cookie recipe roundup, all in this week’s Link Love!

The best links in nutrition, food, and health! @jlevinsonRD

Menu Plan Monday (MPM) is on vacation this week in honor of the last official week of summer and the upcoming Labor Day weekend. That and I’m going to Italy tonight for my friend’s wedding next weekend! Woo-hoo! I’ll be sure to say ciao to gelato for you all 😉

Before I head out of the country, I wanted to leave you with some of my favorite links from the past week. And if you need some inspiration for what to cook this week, just look back at some of the MPM’s from this past month!

Advice For Dietetic Interns From RDs @ C It Nutritionally (Inspiring advice for RDs-to-be or even those who have been practicing for many years. Honored to be included in the roundup.)
