There’s nothing more enjoyable than spending an afternoon outside with family and friends while cooking a perfect meal on your grill. To top it off, grilled meat is tasty, a total crowd-pleaser, and high in protein. Whether you’re cooking on the fly, for a big group of friends, or just having a simple, intimate dinner with your family, the grill you own has a huge impact on how much you enjoy the experience. How can you choose the appropriate grill for your lifestyle? Here are…

CSAs are awesome. (Not sure what a CSA is? Check out our primer here.) And if you ever wished your CSA included more protein — specifically sustainable fish that you can feel really good about eating — then we have the perfect idea for you: a Community Supported Fishery (CSF)! I honestly didn’t know about this whole concept until Sitka Salmon Shares sent me a box to try, and, well, it was love at first open. Filled with wild-caught fish from Southeast Alaska (harvested using hook-and-line methods to minimize negative ecological impact) that’s blast-frozen (to -50 degrees F at peak…

There are a lot of possible reasons each of us eats the way we do. We like the way it tastes, or the memories it conjures, or maybe because we were raised eating that way. Perhaps certain foods make us feel good and energized — or an alternative food makes us feel crummy, so we avoid it. We might have allergies, sensitives, and intolerances that lead us to steer clear of big sections of the supermarket, and we may make certain choices because they align with our personal moral compass. And, of course, we can’t discount the fact that certain…

Some summer trends we’re seeing right now leave us lukewarm — like, are we honestly doing this again? But others — especially those in the health food realm — have us more like: via GIPHY Here are a few that have us psyched to see what other goodies summer has in store! Yogurt That Goes Beyond the Cow Well, if this doesn’t moo-ve you, then we don’t know what will. Yogurt is coming in so many different varieties these days! Bellwether Farms Sheep Milk Yogurt is heating up the refrigerated section with 60 percent more protein than normal yogurt and…

Healthy food subscription boxes are hot right now, and I recently had a chance to review one that I found to be extremely cool — Daily Harvest. Daily Harvest is a weekly or monthly plan that delivers frozen, plant-based and farm-fresh smoothies, soups, Harvest Bowls, oat bowls, chia bowls, and lattes to your door. Each item comes in its own cup with the (totally recognizable) ingredients and (super simple) instructions listed on the side. You simply keep them in your freezer until you’re ready to eat, then pull off the top, add the recommended liquid, and either blend, heat, or…

Honey is probably the sweetener I reach for most often (well, maybe tied with pure maple syrup, anyway). I love it in tea, I often drizzle a little on toast or a buttered English muffin, and it adds just the right amount of sweetness to plain Greek yogurt with fruit and chia seeds. I had an amazing pizza lately that included hot peppers with a drizzle of honey (called a “Bee Sting), and when I’m looking to add a touch of sweetness and consistency to a salad dressing? Honey to the rescue. And, did you know about all the health…

You know those times when you just want a little something to snack on? Like, you don’t need an entire protein bar, but you want a few bites of something tasty and satisfying? I have a lot of those times — before I go to the grocery store, when I’m beginning to prep a meal that’s going to take a while, when I’m back from a workout and I’m not quite ready to eat anything substantial … the list goes on. And guys, I may have found my perfect snack. Perfect Bites, the newest offering from the makers of the…
