Japanese Brand Yu-Be Comes to the U.S.

I learned a lot of things when, in the spring, I went to Japan for two weeks, like…the women have amazing skin and take their regimens very seriously and I’m not just talking about the geisha. Unfortunately even in the major department stores most people don’t speak a lick of English so discovering new products wasn’t as easy as I hoped.

Raw Vegan Recipes From Juice Generation to Make NOW (Yes, They’re That Good)

Would you be believe that the above dessert has avocado in it? It does. More surprisingly still, it tastes fantastic. There are few things that can get me to make the trek from the Upper East Side to Brooklyn, but the promise of a sprawling new Juice Generation with all the juices and raw-vegan fare that it entails, was enough to convince me a few weeks ago…

Health, Beauty, and Fitness Books to Read Now

Protein Powder: Not Just for Bodybuilders

One of the biggest fitness myths is that protein powder is just for bodybuilders. In fact it can make a huge difference for active women of all fitness levels looking to build and maintain lean muscle.

KIND Healthy Snacks Launches New Grains, Fruit & Nut Clusters

KIND Healthy Snacks Launches New Grains, Fruit & Nut Clusters

I’m a snacker – I’m not one to sit and eat breakfast or lunch so aside from dinner I rarely sit down for a proper meal. The problem is that most “healthy” snacks really aren’t that healthy, especially because most of them are hugely addictive so you can easily end up consuming 600-plus calories between meals without even noticing.

Who needs bread? Well, me…I’m a bread addict. The hardest part about spending two weeks in Japan was that most meals did not come with bread (old habits die hard!).
