It's hard to believe that strawberry season is right around the corner. We’re all quite familiar with these sweet, tangy, and bright red berries. But did you know that on top of being naturally delicious, they’re also a rockstar superfood?
I have a confession to make—I'm one of those people who sneaks food into the movie theatre. I know, I know, bad girl! It's not about the money, in fact, I'd happily pony up some of my hard-earned cash if the movie theatre concession stands provided healthier snack options. All that I've seen is buttered popcorn, soda, candy, and hot dogs. Until they get on the healthy eating bandwagon, I'm going to keep on keeping on with my large snack-filled purse.
We've all heard it before—one of the cornerstones of keeping a healthy body is keeping that body well-hydrated. Drinking water helps regulate your body temperature, transport nutrients and oxygen to the necessary parts of your body, lubricate joints, and flush out toxins and waste.

A lot of people feel they have to give up comfort food when they transition to a healthier diet. Wrong! And it's my personal mission to squash this myth.

Growing up, pretty much my only experience with peas were the sad, mushy guys found in the canned goods aisle of the grocery store. They were okay (and a cheap and easy way to make sure my parents could get some veggies into us kids), but it wasn't until I had farm-fresh peas for the first time that I realized a fresh, sweet, bright green pea in the spring can almost be a religious experience! They are bursting with flavor and nutrients and can be used in so many ways—I encourage you to hop on the pea train!
I'm pretty adventurous when it comes to foods. I'm always ready to dive fork-first into a new item I find on the store shelf. But even considering my culinary weird streak, I was pretty skeptical when I first heard about the concept of black bean brownies.
A mud run obstacle race like the Warrior Dash is decidedly different from your standard road race. It requires special preparation, gear, and attitude to make it a fun and comfortable experience. Beyond race day standards like water and snacks, make sure the following items are in your pack.
I don’t know about you, but now that it's officially Spring, I’m suddenly craving lighter and brighter flavors! Goodbye root veggies and roasting pans, hello fresh and raw veggies from the garden!
