Weekend Link Love — Edition 513

Research of the Week Swapping out carbs for nuts does wonders. Doctors don’t listen to and often interrupt their patients. Young kids innately malign free riders.

Give Strawberries a New Sidekick (We Still Love Ya, Cream!)

Forget those under-ripe, pale-shouldered things that garnish every brunch order, fruit cup, and yogurt parfait all year long. In season strawberries are a whole new fruit. They’re juicy, tart, sweet, and red from tip to stem—and each is a giant mouthful of fragrance and flavor that plays well with ingredients and flavors well beyond the obvious.
