We’ve written about CrossFit quite a bit. Because — especially for the beginner — there’s a lot to learn. Like, what the lingo means. The myths. The workouts. The gear. And, how to stay injury-free. And this infographic created by eReplacementParts with the foundational movements, WODs and benefits of CrossFit breaks it all down in a really cool, illustrated way. Source: eReplacementParts.com Another benefit of CrossFit that I can personally attest to? Improved self confidence and an overall feeling of badassness. It’s my favorite benefit, in fact. —Jenn

Taking your dog (or someone else’s) for a walk is seriously awesome for the both of you. And this post written by Casey Dickson, community member at Rover.com — which is the nation’s largest network of 5-star pet sitters and dog walkers — breaks down why. These days exercise takes many forms, and many of them are expensive.

In this episode we have a fun chat with self-taught chef and self-declared “foodie extraordinaire” Devyn Sisson. Devyn recently wrote Kitchen Intuition, and is the daughter of Mark Sisson of Mark’s Daily Apple. So, it’s pretty darn safe to say that she was indoctrinated into a healthy lifestyle at a young age. In fact, Devyn became so consumed with eating perfectly that she developed an eating disorder called Orthorexia Nervosa, which is an obsession with healthy eating where sufferers are so worried about any possible negatives in their food choices that can’t enjoy eating anything. While studying for her Master’s in Spiritual …

Immediately after I finished Susan Lacke’s new book (it’ll be out in November, so pre-order now!), Life’s Too Short to Go So F*cking Slow, I sent her an email. Susan wrote for us from 2012-2016, and I’ve always found her to be not only a great writer but also one of the most hilarious people around — the kind of person that will say something so funny that your green smoothie shoots right out of your nose. And her book? It’s all that and more. Susan tells the story of her unlikely friendship with her uber fit boss Carlos, who helps …
