Outer Spice: Low Salt and No Salt Seasonings

I try to cut salt out of pretty much everything. It’s rare that my order at a restaurant isn’t prefaced with telling the waitress I have an acute sensitivity to salt.

Vertty: The Towel You Didn’t Know You Needed

I am obsessed with everything about new beach towel brand Vertty. Everything about their product – including the packaging – is perfect. Their towel comes in nine different color options and each has a unique zigzag design, which comes packaged in a ready-to-gift triangular shaped box.

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

Health, Beauty, and Fitness Books to Read Now

I’m planning a Gwyneth Paltrow-themed potluck dinner party – themed dinner parties are kind of my thing…I don’t like to cook, but I love getting people together and I find that if it’s around a theme like Momofuku, raw vegan, or Gwyneth, it makes everyone else get more excited about partaking.
