Friday Distractions -- Random Links & Recipes Bookmarked

Ready for the weekend? To help you pass your Friday here are the highlights of what distracted me semi-recently online, what I bookmarked that I hope to one day eat, and a picture.  

Reminder: never give up. Meghan Wilson, who has quadriplegia, graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with her M.D. and Ph.D. (Thanks, Becka for sharing the story!)

" The expectation behind “strong is the new skinny” is that women who take it to heart will allow the pursuit of strength to supplant the pursuit of skinniness when it comes to their physical goals.  But what is actually happening for a lot of women is that they are not abandoning “skinny” in favor of “strong.”  Instead, strength has become yet another physical ideal to be piled on top of all of the other physical ideals they are already trying their damnedest to attain. .... We don’t need a new “skinny.”  We don’t need a new beauty standard, nor do we need yet another physical ideal hanging over our every thought and move like a little black cloud of doom.  What we need to do is change the paradigm so that we value our bodies for all of the amazing things they let us do." What happens when the pursuits of “skinny” and “strong” collide?
