1. I’ve talked a lot about probiotics here on the blog. It’s hard to pick a probiotic brand so I found this great review site to help you decide what to buy! The best brand according to Reviews.com is Garden of Life RAW Probiotics Colon Care. This brand contains the core five probiotic strains L. Plantarum, L. Acidophilus, L. Brevis, B. Lactis, and B. Longum. Probiotics can also be found in fermented foods. Yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, tempeh, kimchi, miso, kombucha, pickles, and aged cheese are all sources of probiotics. If you don’t feel like you’re getting enough probiotics through foods then a supplement may be right for you!
2. Dietitians have some great tips that we love sharing with others. This is a nice list of tips and tricks that work for most people. My favorite on the list is don’t cut out temptation completely and snack smart. When you deprive yourself you want that thing even more! Don’t say no to desserts and “carbs” instead make smart choices and remember your portion sizes. If you want in on even more tips – work with me!
3. Is yoga an aerobic workout? Yoga is great for stress reduction and flexibility, but is it enough to count towards the recommended 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise per week? Well this article sort of clears it up. Yoga can be aerobic if it’s done rapidly like a power yoga class. So if you’re a big yogi try switching it up a bit between power yoga and a regular yoga class. I for one love yoga for a relaxing addition to my workouts.
