New York’s Overturned Soda Ban Is Still Stirring Up Debate

image

We’re a pretty health and wellness-minded bunch here at Birchbox, which is why we’ve been paying close attention to the debate about the potential New York ban of large sodas and other sugary drinks in restaurants, movie theatres, and other food establishments. While there have been similar governmental regulations about public caloric consumption in many other states, this is by far the most aggressive step in the trend—and now a judge’s new ruling about the ban has sparked the conversation again.

My Favorite Winter Smoothie: Guest Blogger

At first glance, you might think that Kathy Ong’s Beauty Palette blog is just your average beauty blogbut you’d be wrong. The underlying theme behind everything that she covers is this: what you put on your face is just as important as what you put into your body. In her own words, “a defining aspect of beauty is nutrition.” Hear hear! This week, she’s sharing her best beauty tips—for both inside and out—on the Birchbox blog.

Smoothies? In the winter? Yes! While I love nothing more than a hearty bowl of soup when it’s cold, smoothies are a great way to sneak healthy ingredients into my diet. While I work very hard to eat my greens at each and every meal, sometimes I need a little help. This particular concoction is my favorite way to add in some extra vegetables and fruits. And it couldn’t be any easier!

My Non-Resolution For 2013? Cook Up a Storm: Well-Balanced

You wouldn’t know it from how much we talk about cookies, but Birchbox staffers are a pretty healthy bunch. We love our veggies and mind-clearing workouts, and are always up to try the latest fitness class or nutrition bar. Which is why we have new regular column: Well-Balanced. Check back weekly for our latest wellness obsession.image

This week’s brown bag lunch, adapted from chef Yotam Ottolenghi.

Last year, around this time, I vowed to write a weekly wellness-focused column. Let the record show that I only made it eight posts before Well-Balanced quietly bit the dust. Well, dear readers, it’s a new year and I am back.

And what better time to focus on wellness? This month’s Birchbox theme is Best Year Ever (don’t forget the accompanying fist pump). It’s not about drastic resolutions—we’re more interested in the small changes we can make that add up to major daily happiness. For me, that means refocusing on the things I love, starting with the kitchen. One of my non-resolutions for 2013 is to cook more. Since I tend to gravitate toward colorful, seasonal recipes (more veggies, less meat), it automatically helps me eat more healthfully. I also save money by bringing leftovers to lunch (and really, I can out-salad a veggie bar like Chop’t or Tossed any day). 

The best way I’ve found to stay motivated to cook is to surround myself with delicious inspiration. Click through for three of my favorite new cookbooks (and some must-try recipes!).
