Delicious foods worth buying at Ikea
Cheapism 2hrs ago
Meatballs and Beyond When we think of Ikea we think of furniture and instruction manuals, but the store also has some amazing and strange foods available to buy. You may not find traditional Swedish delights such as Fiskbullar, which is actually fish balls, or Lutefisk, the country's classic dish of dried cod that's brined with lye, rinsed then boiled or baked and served with cream or butter (it has a notoriously potent smell and a consistency like Jell-O), but there are marinated herring varieties, an incredible salmon fillet, and of course, meatballs and lingonberry jam — all quite tasty. There's a nutrition guide for people with allergies to consult when shopping the best and weirdest foods offered at Ikea. Prices and availability are subject to change.Related: 18 Secrets and Hacks for Shopping at Ikea

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
