Three Things


1. The report The State of Obesity 2015 is out. It’s not entirely surprising to find out that the South and Midwest have the highest adult obesity rates. The highest obesity rate was found in Arkansas (35.9%). Colorado had the lowest rate (21.3%). No state had an obesity rate less than 21% compared to reports that in 1991 no states had an obesity rate more than 20%. Almost 78 million people in the United States are at increased risk for a obesity-related health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. This is preventable! Check out the report to see where your state falls. {Trust for America’s Health}

2. Pope weekend is finally upon us in Philadelphia. Here are all the Pope-inspired specials being offered across the city. I would love to try some of these things… if I could only get there! Looks like the “Papal Pleasure” Belgian amber ale from Manayunk Brewing Company is the only one I’ll be able to try, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing! {Visit Philly}

3. I love tacos. They remind me of summer (especially a fresh grilled fish taco), but these tacos are perfect for fall. Yes! Kale, eggplant, and lentils are a few of the ingredients that make me excited for fall flavors. {Food & Wine}
