It's officially summertime this week. With beach days and hot summer nights, it's easy to over indulge at times. Yes, you deserved that fresh off the grill burger and second glass of rosé, but treating yourself doesn't mean you have to give up the next few days of healthy eating and exercise. Next time you find yourself bloated and lethargic from eating your favorite, yet not so fueling meals, try these yoga poses to speed up your digestion.
Your wellness routine can't be all about eating clean and making better food choices. Movement is just as important as nutrition and we like to think of it as the second pillar to achieving true health. Movement doesn’t have to be early morning gym sessions everyday or 10 mile runs (Although if that's your thing, go for it!). Instead think of movement as short periods of time that add up in the long run... It can start with just getting up from your desk to go get a glass of water. Whatever movement means to you, try to incorporate more throughout your week.
Integrating exercise into your week is key to your overall health and wellness. Our bodies crave movement. But we get it... running on the treadmill three times a week is boring!! Luckily its 2018 and there is literally TONS of options for group classes to get you moving. This year our team is determined to try them all because just like you we are working towards establishing our individual wellness routines.
Fitness is one of our top wellness priorities year round. In addition to the foods and drinks you consume to nourish your body, movement is also a key component to your health. And in a city like New York, we are no strangers to walking from point A to point B and taking the subway. But in addition to our brisk walks to catch the train, this city is full of workout opportunities. To share more about the city's hidden gym gems and how to fit movement into your busy schedule, we chatted with Elizabeth and Dale, the gals over at Sweats and the City, who are seriously in-the-know with all things fitness in the Big Apple.
During and after your pregnancy, putting your wellness first by eating nutrient rich foods and staying active is key. To share more insights we talked with Kristin McGee, our favorite 'can't believe how she does it all' Author, Mompreneur and Celebrity Yoga / Pilates Teacher. From day one we knew she would be our go-to resource for soon-to-be and new moms. Check out our interview with her on how to stay nourished, tips for recovery, best yoga positions, and advice on keeping it all balanced. What advice can you share on how to feed yourself during pregnancy and then while breastfeeding - especially if you want to stay nourished while also starting to think about recovery?
February is in full swing and we have SELF-CARE at the top of our to-do list all month long. Last week was all about starting to eat better (LINK TO ORDER NOW) and choosing nutritious foods. Designed to keep our body nourished and full of energy, eating clean is a must if you want to love yourself and take serious care of your health.
This week we have FITNESS on deck and thought it would be fun to hear from some experts on self-care and what part fitness plays in their routine. Check out our interview below with fitness experts: Laurel Crosby, S-Factor Teacher, and Christina Jensen, NASM Certified Trainer.
We checked in with our Wellness Partner and Fitness Expert, Christina Jensen, to get her top moves that are essential to her workout routines. Check them out:

Your health and wellness must be a priority this year. You’ve taken the first steps already by getting setup with our Organic Meal Delivery or Cleanse Program. The second step is to start incorporating more ways to stay active. And we totally get it. When are you supposed to have time to meet your trainer, go to Soul Cycle, or zen out in a yoga class? In this day of technology, no time is no longer an excuse.
