Monday Afternoon Links ~ 5.11.12

Here are the links that have my mind and body buzzing this week:
  • Some foods are worse for you than others.  These triple threats are bad for you in more ways than one - yikes!
  • Beach-bound anytime soon?  Here are some easy ways to stay fit while hanging out by the water.
  • The is-chocolate-good-for-you? debate seems to rage on and on, but more evidence is claiming that there's a likelihood that dark chocolate is good for you.  Hooray!
  • Not sure what to order the next time you're out at a restaurant?  Use this handy guide to recognize words that are potentially helpful - or problematic.
  • I've always been a huge fan of hydration - but this article plays devil's advocate to the idea of needing eight glasses of water to be healthy.  Worth a read!
  • Made enough of my quinoa pizza bites and need some new recipes?  Never fear - Shape mag just put out a list of 10 new ways to prepare my favorite little super-grain! 
  • Are you a sunscreen addict?  If not, your mind may change after seeing this - proof that sun damage is a very real thing.
  • Beer prevents colds?  Chocolate milk helps you lose body fat?  Blueberries are a runner's superfood?  Check out these crazy food study discoveries and more here.
  • This tearjerker will make you rethink the purpose of sport competitions - winning isn't the most important thing!
