Smoothie bowls are all the rage right now. Well, at least according to my Instagram feed.
I’m not really sure exactly when they began to become a “thing,” but I do know that they are in fact a thing that many health and wellness influencers love to share gratuitous photos of (and of course, eat). … Read More

Runners: our bodies endure an astonishing amount of fatigue and afflictions.
Broken or lost toenails, chaffed skin, sore muscles and, unfortunately, sometimes even more serious injuries. Running is great (I know you don’t need to be convinced of that), but even though it provides so many benefits (a healthier heart, a happier mind, stronger muscles, etc.) it’s still a form of stress for our body too, which means if you run a lot taking extra care of your body (being KIND to it, if you will) is an essential ingredient for staying healthy and strong … Read More
Snack Time is one of the most important times of the day.
If you disagree with the above statement, then we can’t be friends.
OK, I’m just kidding… A little.

Oh and for an alternative to the classic peanut butter and banana combo, I’ve recently been spreading cookie butter (also from Trader Joe’s) on my bananas.

By now most of you know that last month I started a new job as an editor at TheActiveTimes.com. But unless you did some serious snooping, you probably don’t know that The Active Times’ sister site is TheDailyMeal.com. In other words I work in the same office space as The Daily Meal, a site dedicated to all things good food. (I know, it couldn’t be more perfect.)
So, The Daily Meal has this exquisite test kitchen (also located in our office) where the staff is always cooking up recipes and hosting taste tests. It’s amazing. I love it. TDM recently published “The 101 Best Pizzas in America,” and as a staff, the entire media group celebrated the article’s success with afternoon pizza and drinks last Friday (which also happened to be the same day as my birthday). Basically, my new job has sort of come along with many a perks in the form of food.
