{piqued picks}

Piqued picks- a Saturday meme. Links to articles, tutorials, recipes, videos, music... that have piqued my interest this week and made my heart go pitter patter. Feel free to share anything you found inspiring or noteworthy this week in the comments section or link to your own blog's piqued picks.

From the New York Times, an article about high-tech parents who work for the likes of Google, Apple, Yahoo and Hewitt-Packard, but who believe that computers (and TVs) have no place in schools. A Silicone Valley School That Doesn't Compute.

A very interesting video from "The Doctors Show". Doctors debating meat-eating versus vegan diets and what is healthier in their opinion. (taken down because it was playing automatically- link is here: http://www.onegreenplanet.org/news/watch-vegans-vs-meat-eaters-on-the-doctors-show/


A girl can dream: beautiful cruelty-free handbags from Jill Milan. Excessive in price. Not really a want, just a good oggle.

Just attended a 3-hour Kids Natural First Aid course at the Red Tent Health Centre in Sydney. It was filled with a wealth of information and I came home with a plethora of homeopathic and Chinese herbal remedies for coughs, colds, flus, fevers, ear infections, aches and pains. Highly recommended to anyone with kids in the Sydney area.

Very interesting video from the 'Doctor's show', they made some good points. When I get asked if I would ever recommend vegetariansim/veganism to clients, I say no. I would never recommend to anyone to go completely without meat, however, I would recommend that people have meat-free meals multiple times a week...and substitute with legumes etc. Plus I would start ranting about choosing organic, free-range etc. etc. And I definitely think becoming vegetarian/vegan does require a lot of nutrition knowledge if you do want to do it healthily. Thanks M! xo
