Lovely Valentine’s Day Idea

Forget flowers and chocolate

OK, ok, just in case the hubbies are reading this we don’t want you to really forget flowers and chocolate, but Valentine’s Day is a day where we like to celebrate everyone we love and that, of course, includes our close friends. We had this grand vision of baking a basket of treats this year, but as per usual we have a feeling our schedule is going to get the best of us. In comes Palais des Thés to the rescue with a slew of ready-to-gift, wonderfully tasteful (and tasty!), tea options.

The brand launched three new themed gift boxes - “Les Floraux,”“Les Fruités,and “Les Gourmands,each includes five all-natural flavored teas to indulge the senses with floral, fruity and sweet treat flavors. The five tubes are filled with whole leaf tea and retail for $29 (each tube contains enough tea to brew a 6-8 cup pot.

Our sweet tooth leads the way and we’re loving Les Gourmands” (the Sweet Treats Tea Set). Incredibly flavorful [...]

Effective resistance training

As women we’re programmed to think “cardio cardio cardio” when it comes to our fitness routine, but the truth is resistance training is just as important. And no, you won’t bulk up. It is true, as we learned firsthand from Tracy Anderson however, that lifting heavy weights does not age well meaning that if you have a body that is prone to “bulking up,” it’s best to opt for body weight and low resistance work. With that in mind we love this Balance Ball from Gaiam.

The lightweight ball is a travel-friendly and [...]

Skim vs. Whole Milk Which One Is Better?

We ask the experts

You might be surprised to learn that the best option for your and your family when it comes to dairy might not, in fact, be skim. We spoke with Tammy Lakatos Shames and Lyssie Lakato, registered dietitian nutritionists and personal trainers with 15 years of experience helping thousands of clients, to find out their thoughts on the skim vs whole milk debate. Here’s what they had to say!

“When it comes to skim vs. whole milk, the answer is not as simple as once thought. For most Americans who get far too much saturated fat (and calories for that matter) choosing low-fat milk is what we recommend and is healthier for them. For someone who doesn’t get much saturated fat, having a little bit in milk won’t hurt them, and we’d say it’s ok to for them to have whole milk in their coffee if they prefer it. However, substituting those saturated fat calories with polynunsaturated fat (found in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds and fatty fish) provides a greater benefit because doing so actually reduces risk of heart disease. At this time, we recommend that most Americans choose low-fat milk and get their fat sources from the polyunsaturated fats to lower their risk of heart disease. However, if someone doesn’t [...]

The Health App That Will Get You In Shape

Getting in shape might be easier than you think

After a long holiday break of lounging and relaxing getting back into shape can seem like a lot of work (especially after the marathon of holiday cookies we had!). But the new health and fitness app, Nudge, makes it easy and fun to get back on track to start the new year off with confidence.

The app gathers and indexes health information including nutrition, hydration, fitness, sleep and energy level into a convenient score, called the Nudge Factor. This score can be shared with friends (or the hubby!) for friendly competition as you compete for the best score…hey, some good healthy competition never hurt anyone.

And, for extra-help, Nudge has “clubs” like the adventure club and the stress club where you can find tips and healthy recipes to kickstart your health challenge. The cool [...]

What The Fork Are You Eating?

A new must read

What The Fork Are You Eating? Is a fascinating new book by nutritionist Stefanie Sacks MS CNS CDN. It demystifies terms like “natural,” “grass-fed,” or “free-roaming” to help us figure out what the heck we are actually eating!

Sacks helps outline an action plan for our pantry and plate and offers a “nutritional prescription” for culinary healing. As parents it’s so important for us to have all the tools we can get our hands on to help fuel healthy lives for our little ones and this books allows us to do so in an easy, accessible manner. We especially love all the DIY pantry, fridge, and freezer strategies. Best of all Sacks is a mother of two young sons so she [...]
