Joining a wine club can seem like a no-brainer for those who believe that the only thing better than getting a fun package in the mail is discovering a fantastic new wine. But the traditional wine club — like the ones you join at a winery — hasn’t necessarily been quite right for everyone. Maybe you haven’t had a chance to visit wine country, so you don’t even know which winery you’d want to receive a regular shipment from. Perhaps you’re interested in a wider variety than a single winery tends to offer. Or you might have really specific tastes,…

I’m almost too nervous to type it in case we’re forgetting something major, but — aside from buying a minivan and investing in a double jogging stroller — I think we are pretty set up for the twin girls to arrive! My husband and I have spent the last couple of months turning what was a tiny playroom into the nursery, and I gotta say, that I’m very pleased with how it turned out. It’s cozy and functional, but we squeezed all of the most-important things in there! There were a few things that we knew were a MUST from…

When I wander into the kitchen for a snack these days, the questions running through my mind tend to be of the, “I wonder if that Greek yogurt I bought has turned,” variety. But, when you’re in a serious training cycle and you’re focusing on food as fuel that helps you perform at your highest level, your questions tend to get a little deeper. And those are just the questions being answered in the new Sports Nutrition Handbook by Justyna Mizera and Krzysztof Mizera. While the answers and explanations are backed with science, they’re explained in a straightforward manner that you…

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…

It’s no secret that I have a few nagging, painful spots — and I’m always on the lookout for something that might provide some relief.  So, as you might imagine, I’ve got a nice little stockpile of muscle rubs and pain creams under my bathroom sink. Now, I can’t truthfully say that I’ve found a magical potion that alleviates all my aches and pains — if I did, this article would actually be a video, and I’d be doing this the whole time: via GIPHY So far, I’ve not had quite that level of success. But, I have been lucky…

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…
