It’s mid-May and you know what that means, right? FBG party! via GIPHY Which also means it’s award season here in the Fit Bottomed World. via GIPHY For us, that includes the Fitties, Mommies, Noshies, and Zennies — AKA the best products we tried over the course of the last year. And, since our redesign last year, it makes sense that all the awards are in one spot, right? Right! (And, yep, we love some of these so much that we’ve become affiliates — meaning, if you decide to try something out, a portion goes to supporting this site. Thanks!)…

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…

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…

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…

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…

If you’ve spent much time around here, I’m betting you’re familiar with Susan Lacke. She’s written for Fit Bottomed Girls, she’s talked me into doing some really hard but amazing things, and last year, after her first book (Life’s Too Short to Go So Fucking Slow) was released, she joined us on the podcast. (Did you miss it the first time around? No worries! We’ve got you covered.) Here’s a fun fact — Susan and I were in my kitchen, together, as we recorded it, because she was in Florida working on her second book, Running Outside the Comfort Zone…
