Women Who Make Me Think
I almost titled this post ‘Time to Plug the Ladies,’ with absolutely no immediate sense of the connotations. But alas, within milliseconds, I realized what a grave (but funny) error that would be.
Bronwyn Schweigerdt has a deeply researched blog offering opposing view points to much of what the dairy and meat industry (read: protein military complex) will have you believe. This is sort of the antithesis to any bodybuilding magazine or Paleo/caveman style diet (heck, even the blog name is anti-paleo), so it is good reading if you want a point/counter-point contrast to much of the info getting a lot of web time and space right now.
Brooke Preston has a blog devoted to her raw foods chef company, the Green Boheme, which now has a take out counter open to the public in the evenings. There is a schedule of her workshops and cooking classes on the blog as well.
Krista Scott-Dixon is, of course, the crazy Canadian who is behind Stumptuous.com, the Empress of Physical Culture websites, as well as a great resource for feminist theory and a host of other things that are over my head.
Kat Ricker, author and lifter, documents her journeys through life with quality info and a level of writing that I can wish to aspire to. There is a LOT of info on this site, from research into to seedier sides of Bodybuilding to the fun to be had through Olympic lifting.
I like thinking, although it hurts my tiny trainer brain, so i thank all of these women for giving me the good type of headache.
