 h1. Dear readers,
 New year's resolutions often include losing weight and simplifying our lives. Here are two recent stories, both by Tara Parker-Pope over at the New York Times, that deal with just those topics: In the Sunday magazine, her article '"The looks at how our bodies rejigger themselves after gaining weight, which makes it difficult to keep off any weight we do lose. And in her Well blog, Parker-Pope Interviews Tamar Adler, a writer and chef who advocates ditching recipes in favor of simple techniques — like boiling water. There's a little more to it than that, of course, but Adler's bottom line is that we shouldn't be held hostage by recipes; instead of striving for extraordinary when we cook, we should be content cooking everyday food that's nourishing and tasty.

 Those stories are both great, but my favorite headline so far this year is this recent one from Sweden: '"Swede It's got everything: A long-lasting love affair, compost, and a happy ending. Enjoy!
