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 […]

Ultimate Spa Detox

I got back from Miami a few days ago and the transition from 70-something to 30-something degree weather has been brutal…already figuring out when I can head back next for a weekend! I was there over New Year, which was fantastic because it kind of felt like NYC was transplanted to Florida meaning I kept […]

Altar Herbal & Botanical Mood Mixer

Believe it or not…I don’t drink. Not that I’m opposed to it, I just rarely do it so it’s unlikely that anything involving alcohol would get me excited. I was super excited however when one of the founders of ALTAR, the first premium Herbal & Botanical Mood Mixer made from fruits, heirloom vegetables, single estate teas, […]

Vitamix 1363 CIA Professional Series: Mix and Match

A Vitamix is the best investment you can make for your health. It took me a while to think that a $500 blender was actually necessary in my life, but after two years of it in my life, I honestly don’t know what I’d do without it. This has paid for itself 10-fold. In fact, […]

Pure Flow Fitness

It takes about two seconds of talking to me to realize that I’m a fitness nut. It’s a major part of my life and as such it’s difficult for me to take more than a day off a week. As important as it is to keep our bodies active it’s equally important for us to […]
