Snack Right

For better or worse most nights my dinner isn’t so much a dinner, but a mix of about 1,000 different little things. No matter what I make sure to include fruits, vegetables and some kind of protein (usually salmon), but inevitably cookies (sugar is my major weakness!), baguette (bread is my second weakness!), will make […]

Pure Yoga’s Halle Becker Dishes on Inner Zen

Donna Karan, Sting, Michelle Williams, Gwyneth Paltrow….it’s not for nothing that most zen-seeming celebrities are vocal about their passion for yoga. Not only does it build strength and flexibility, it helps calm an overactive mind – a key for great skin (and just overall sanity!), given that few things are worse for your body than […]

The Squatty Potty Toilet Stool

When I saw an ad for Squatty Potty randomly pop-up on my screen I took a picture and emailed it out to a few friends…how hilarious I thought…I couldn’t even believe it was real! Who the hell is going to put a stool like that around their toilet, let alone one called Squatty Potty?? Turns […]

Suiting Up For An Outdoor Workout

Nike is one of my favorite brands. I’ve been in awe of their inspirational marketing campaigns for as long as I can remember and when it comes to functional sneaker design they just can’t be beat. Better yet I recently learned that they organize a ton of free events including weekly run clubs and training […]

Enzymedica GlutenEase: Take Me Out Tonight

I found out two years ago that I was gluten intolerant. I don’t have celiac disease, but I do have really bad reactions whenever I eat gluten, so I’ve completely cut it out of my diet. I learned the hard way about this problem. I fainted twice, both in the most inopportune of places – […]

Kelly’s Cold & Flu Elixir: Natural Remedy

This flu season has taken everyone down. First, my husband had it, and now both of my kids. I’ve been playing nurse for almost a month now, but have managed not to get sick and I’m convinced it’s because of this elixir I’ve concocted. While it can’t prevent anyone from getting the bug, it’s nice […]

David Kirsch Wellness Water

Before you yell out marketing gimmick….hear me out! I took a friend who is a few pounds overweight with me to hot yoga a few weeks ago. Like pretty much all of us he’d like a quick and easy way to loose his excess weight so while doing yoga in 120 degrees he refused to […]

Taj Mahal of Yoga Mats: Manduka Black Mat PRO

One of my favorite yoga instructors, Scott Harig who teaches at Pure Yoga, told me that if I wanted to be “hardcore,” the yoga mat to get is the Manduka Black Mat PRO ($94 and up depending on the color). Why exactly does it make you hardcore I asked? “Because it’s heavy,” he said. Heavy […]

David Kirsch Wellness Wants To Help You With Your Resolutions

I can’t even begin to count how many phone calls, text messages, Facebook messages, and emails I’ve gotten from friends who want to get in better shape as part of their 2013 New Year resolutions. I’m always excited to take people with me to work out so I think it’s awesome that some of my […]
