Hope you are enjoying this September weekend! I think we are actually all packed up! Well, except for the last minute things. I mean, I still need a plate to eat off of this week.
This time next week we will be landing in the US. No doubt we will hit the ground running as we drop things off, pack the rest and head out on our month long trip throughout Southeast Asia. Then I get to finish that off with a week in San Francisco and the Foodbuzz Blogger Fest! It is an exciting time for sure.
This will be the last links post for a while. They’ll return in November because I love sharing what I find and the posts keep me motivated to stay on top of my food and health reading around the web. I think you’ll be pleased with the great stuff this week!

This is an interesting post about how companies are trying to keep up with our demand for gluten-free and other nourishing grains.

Cauliflower & cashew pilaf with chickpea curry on the BBC Good Food Channel
The cauliflower and cashews in this dish sound fantastic! I would likely substitute in my chickpeas in curry as opposed to using a jar sauce, but this is a combination I would not thought of pulling together on my own.
