My weekly list is coming a bit late this week because … well, life happened and I didn’t get to it! Here is what I’m loving this week:
How to Raise a Feminist Son: I read this great article yesterday. If you don’t identify with the feminist movement, look beyond the title, because it’s a great read on how to raise sons to reach their full, unique potential and become kind, empathetic people.
Here is an excerpt if you’d like to read:
“Even as we’ve given girls more choices for the roles they play, boys’ worlds are still confined, social scientists say. They’re discouraged from having interests that are considered feminine. They’re told to be tough at all costs, or else to tamp down their so-called boy energy.”
“Men are falling behind in school and work because we are not raising boys to succeed in the new, pink economy. Skills like cooperation, empathy and diligence — often considered to be feminine — are increasingly valued in modern-day work and school, and jobs that require these skills are the fastest-growing.”
Click through to read some really great guidelines for how to raise sons to become amazing, sensitive, strong men.
I made these Whole 30 Fish Taco Bowls with Mango Salsa, Chipotle Aioli, and Coconut-Lime Cauliflower Rice (longest title ever) last night and they were amazing! I used haddock instead of tilapia, pineapple instead of mango, store bought guacamole and regular mayonnaise. Although it has a lot of parts, it’s a pretty quick meal and it’s way too healthy to be so delicious. The fish is covered in spices and so flavorful, over super healthy coconut lime cauliflower rice, topped with the sweet and spicy salsa, savory guacamole, fresh cabbage slaw, and delicious chipotle aioli over all of it. Definitely making this again.
Does anyone else watch Riverdale? I watched the first season on Netflix and fell in love with the dramatic film style and the characters (and let’s face it — beautiful actors). The show is based on the Archie comics with a much darker twist. I’ve been watching the second season on the CW app — this season is another murder mystery and I’m loving it.
In between waiting for the next episodes of Riverdale to come out I’ve become addicted to Once Upon a Time! I know it started back in 2011, but I just discovered it on Netflix. Isn’t it great when you get into a show that has a ton of seasons readily available? I was pleasantly surprised to find out years after the fact that Prince Charming and Snow White (or, the actors who play them) are actually married in real life — swoon! I love the fantasy world meets real world premise of the show, the continuing surprise appearances of every fictional character you’ve ever heard of, and the clever twists on the well known fairytales.
