Galley Sink is the single greatest human achievement since Neil Armstrong landed on the moon. It is one giant leap for kitchen design. It is that amazing, I am not exaggerating. If you cook and make everything from farm fresh produce, you will appreciate the symphony that takes place when prepping, cooking and serving using the Galley. This isn’t just a sink, it is a work station, it performs for you.

As far as I’m concerned, there’s only one downside to chickpeas; it’s easy to eat about 10 portions worth! So before I delve into the benefits and highlight some unique options, I highly recommend always portioning out your chickpea-based foods because while they come with a ton of health benefits, they are NOT a low-calorie food.
My brother moved from New York to Seattle to work for Microsoft and then Amazon, and in the process, he became super environmentally-conscious (Before, he was freaking out over the lack of good steaks there…now he’s a mostly vegan triathlete). What does that mean? It means that when he came back to NYC to visit my parents and me, and he saw how many water bottles I go through every day, he literally yelled at me (YELLED!). This led me to do research into fitness shakers and bottles to replace my pile of Fiji and Poland Spring ones. I hate to admit this, but not only did I go through five to six a day, but I was also horrible about recycling them. Luckily, it turns out a lot has changed since those shabby, old plastic bottles ruled the market, which impart nasty plastic-like “flavoring” to beverages and can easily accumulate bacteria over the course of usage.
Okay, okay…I know using healthy and cocktail in the same sentence is a bit of an oxymoron, but with the rise in health and fitness awareness, the options for cocktails that won’t totally mess with your diet are growing fast. Be Mixed, for example, is an all-natural, zero-calorie cocktail mixer that was launched last year by two female 29-year-old Harvard Business School graduates who were tired of settling for vodka sodas, while Fruits and Wine is a low-cal French rosé (they just launched three new flavors: Cherry Rosé, Grapefruit Rosé, and Strawberry Rosé). Hoping to get a bit more creative? For those looking to flex their mixology muscles, I turned to some of the country’s leading experts and asked them to share their favorite “healthy” cocktails for spring!
Want to impress your guests without exerting much effort? Serve your summer cocktails from a garden-inspired ice bucket and swim in compliments all night as if you’re the next Martha Stewart.

It’s the easiest DIY project ever.
