The Daily Feed: Sites We're Surfing on 3/13

You'd think with it being Friday the 13th I'd be looking up superstitions or ghost tales, but no, I'm catching up on my weekly reading. My eyes perked up when these stories caught my attention today:
  • Did you know March is National Nutrition Month? Guess it's time to do that spring cleaning before the official start to spring comes our way next week. Clean out the refrigerator toxins and swap them with healthful nutrients your body needs at EatingWell.
  • Any good winter workout deserves a cookie splurge in my book (or maybe I had a craving?). I wanted to get my fix in the form of Girl Scout cookies, especially Tagalongs, Samoas and Thin Mints. Apparently antiquated practices do not allow for the sale of cookies online, and I can't find any vendors around me so I'm going to have to stick with cookie-filled Edy's. Note: the Girl Scouts celebrated their 97th birthday on March 12.
  • My mom recently started Prevention's Flat Belly Diet, finally admitting that she was sneaking snacks and savory treats and cheating on the sly. She claims this is one diet she's excited about and even inspired her friend to start so they can challenge each other and compare results. Go Mom!
  • The Iditarod, the famous sled dog race traveling across Alaska, kicked off last Saturday. Follow the mushers and their progress from Anchorage to Nome at
  • Bree Wee, a pro triathlete living on Hawaii's Big Island, has been training tough all week. And alone. Check out her blog to see why.
