Ola from sunny Brazil!!

Charlie and I made it to Rio in one piece. And I managed to hand in my manuscript in the nick of time before we boarded the plane on Christmas Day, which was the best gift I could ever ask for. I will be celebrating the accomplishment with many caipirinhas in the days to come.… Continue Reading

BestBooks2015

This year I logged a personal reading record, thanks to all the research I had to do for The Wellness Project. And all the health books I got to pore over was one off the most enjoyable parts of my own book writing process.

I’ve mentioned some of my favorites here and there during my monthly recaps, but I wanted to finally put together a comprehensive list of the best new wellness reads from 2015.… Continue Reading

The Best Wellness Stocking Stuffers From My Year of Products

The Best Wellness Stocking Stuffers and Gift Certificate Ideas

One of the reasons I started The Wellness Project was to try to figure out what products (including foods) are actually worth the money we spend on them.

For years I felt like I was bleeding green on everything from foam rollers to green juice to magnetic back braces. My experiments were designed to cut the fat and focus on the bigger picture. But of course, despite my attempt to be discerning, I acquired lots of things along the way that are still collecting dust in my hallway.… Continue Reading

Health is a big business. For years I felt like I was bleeding green on everything from foam rollers to green juice to magnetic back braces. One of the reasons I started The Wellness Project was to try to figure out what products (including foods) are actually worth the money we spend on them.

Building a water habit is something you can easily do for free. In fact, one of the experiments I suggested for this month was to go on a beverage aisle ban, which will end up saving you a lot of money of you’re someone who can’t resist a bespoke bottle of kombucha.… Continue Reading

The 8 Best Natural, Organic Skincare Brands and Products

The Best Natural Skincare Products | Organic Brands for Face and Body |

Since kicking off Green Beauty month, I keep getting emails and messages asking about my favorite natural cosmetics brands.

Last year, I put together a list of the great organic makeup items I started integrating into my routine. But since skincare is really the first place to start, it seems silly that I haven’t given you that specific leg up into the world of naturals for your body and face.… Continue Reading

A Simple Timeline For Switching to Natural Beauty Products

Last spring I went through the first few steps of transitioning to natural beauty products. I’ve made it through stage 2, to be exact.

As part of The Wellness Project’s green beauty month I’m going to try to make even more progress, including finding one go-to red lipstick that’s natural. I’ve put it further down on my timeline because for me it’s not an everyday item. But it’s estimated that the average woman will eat 4 pounds of lipstick in her lifetime. So there’s that…… Continue Reading

The 7 Best Gluten-Free Sauces and Condiments

The Best Gluten-Free Sauces and Condiments | Gluten-Free BBQ Sauce, Gluten-Free Teriyaki Sauce, Gluten-Free Spaghetti Sauce, Gluten-Free Peanut Sauce, Gluten-Free Mayonnaise, Gluten-Free Romesco and Gluten-Free Carrot-Ginger Dressing

I hope everyone had the best Thanksgiving!

I know I should technically be diving right into holiday planning mode and/or helping you disguise your 5-day old turkey into curry or casseroles or croquettes. But luckily, I already did the latter last year (see here for turkey tikka masala and other treats), so I thought I’d take advantage of the rare lull to talk about something a little more practical than how to make eggnog for 18 of your boozy friends.

The biggest learning curve when I first went gluten-free was trying to navigate all the condiments and sauces that were now a landmine for wheat additives.… Continue Reading
