The Natural Products Expo West beckoned us with more than 2000 organic and natural foods. Who were we to turn away from free food that was good, good for us, and good for the planet? Four days, eight reusable bags full of samples, and 250 incredible snacks later, we noted the top trends emerging from the healthy food industry. Turns out Kymberly is the poster person and target market for the next wave. So wave hello to healthier foods with me as I stick Alexandra in the kitchen to bake us something organic and wonderfully delicious. Thumbs up to the food, Natural Products Expo West, and healthier, sustainable trends in the offing.
Sore back, weak core, weight gain and feeling gross–none of these sound like Nick is heading for a successful Spring Break. Is there something he can do that doesn’t require crunches and is really easy? Something easier than finding a magic wand or unicorn? Like patting the computer monitor and rubbing his abs? Does an ice cream diet work?
Which diet is the “best” diet? And who wants to participate in something that has the word “die” in it? Just to satisfy our curiosity about diets, magic pills and quackery, let’s take a look back at a few diets that were trendy in their time (you know, like last week).
Question from a real reader, not unpaid actor or our mom: “Dear F and F – It’s more than ten days into the new year and I’m still not back into a workout routine after the holiday bliss (read: I haven’t worked out in over a month). I’m having a hard time getting motivated to get up and go to the gym (as I eat my bowl of chocolate ice cream). If I get to the gym or take my morning walk I can get in the Zen. What should I do?” Answer from the real, not imaginary twin: Thanks for asking. What you need to do is sign-up for our 30 Day Challenge. And slowly back away from the ice cream.
Snap, pop, crackle, spin, and faint. And that’s just the warm-up for today’s fun activity: What to do when feeling dizzy during exercise? One reason for dizziness is being too hot – you know, like the well-toned, half-naked firefighter working the euphemistic fire hose in one of our recent post photos. We like to think readers are dizzy from laughing too hard at our fine advice. Twins can dream, can’t they? Also, what accounts for all that popping and crackling sound in joints (before the fire started)? Watered down answers coming right up!
