Every year, as Earth Day approaches, I find myself paying a little extra attention to the ways — both big and small — that I can help protect our environment. I try to bike or walk instead of drive when possible, I always bring reusable bags when I go to the supermarket, and when my friends and I are at the beach, we don’t leave until we’ve each picked up at least three pieces of trash. But the one thing that all of us can probably do more of, no matter where we live or what our daily lives look…

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…

We always love checking out products from new (at least, new-to-us!) brands that align with the values we hold dear — especially when the products in question are truly revolutionary. Recently, we’ve had the chance to give two products that check all the boxes a try: the ridgeback yoga mat and the FABSOUL Go With The Flow Yoga Leggings. Here’s what you should know about these innovative products — and, of course, what we thought about ’em! ridgeback yoga mat If you do heated (or hot) yoga, I’m betting you use a yoga towel so that you don’t slip around…

I’ve recently gotten back into a decent habit of planning out dinners for the week. Seriously, it’s amazing how differently I approach the dinner decision when I’ve written it out and stuck it on my refrigerator door. This time around, I took things one step further and included a space for writing down any evening activities I might want to take into account when planning those meals. It’s not really an official calendar, really, but it turns out that having those little reminders of what I’ve got going on is really handy. It keeps some of my more aspirational ideas…

I (Kristen) was sitting on my mat the other day, watching my fellow yogis wander in and set up their spaces, and, I had a thought: What we look for in yoga clothes has quite a bit in common with what we seek out in a class. The most important thing, of course, is function. Obviously, if I’m attending a class, I’m there to get something out of it — a workout, a stretch, maybe a spiritual connection. And whatever I happen to be wearing needs to move and stretch and stay put no matter what positions I find myself…

My spice cabinet is one of my favorite parts of my kitchen. Not because it’s fancy (it’s … just a cabinet), but because it’s so full of possibilities. A quick twirl of the lazy susan in there can show me just the right spice to take any dish up a notch with just a few shakes. Even though I have a few go-tos that I toss in many dishes — red pepper flakes, a special Tuscan blend, cinnamon — I’m always open to trying something new and interesting. And the Hawaij blends that Pereg recently sent my way are definitely new…

Y’all are familiar with the FabFitFun subscription box, right? You know, the one filled with eight to 10 full-sized (yes, we said full-sized!) beauty, fitness, wellness, and home products curated by beauty experts that’s sent to your doorstep each and every season? Yep, it’s awesome. With more than $200 of goodies for only $49.99 per box, it’s one of the best deals you can scoop up. We’ve been getting the box and praising it for years now, but the latest spring box that we just got our Fit Bottomed hands on? Holy, wow. It’s like getting a box of fun sunshine delivered…

I’m aware that the answer can be a bit complicated. You know how we feel about finding your big, meaningful, feel-it-in-your-soul why — that strong, internal motivation. It’s huge, and, when it comes to making healthy choices day after day after day, there’s just no substitute. But … it doesn’t have to be the only thing that gets you out the door. I mean, if you ask me my main motivation for staying active, it’s honestly all about feeling the best…

You know what I love about meal kit delivery services? The convenience — and the ability to make food that’s usually really delicious in a pretty minimal amount of time with zero grocery store shopping. You know what I don’t love about most meal kit delivery services? The waste. OMG, from the plastic to the styrofoam — it’s just something I can’t ignore. So when I got the chance to try Green Chef for a week, I jumped at it. Besides getting recipes and ingredients for healthy meals (and ones that can be gluten-free, Paleo, vegan, omnivore, and more), the…
