How to “Eat Healthy” When You Don’t Like to Cook

How to “Eat Healthy” When You Don’t Like to Cook Sep, 20 Jen Comas Nutrition I’ve never liked to cook. Many years ago, when I started trying to make better food choices, I tried forcing myself to cook in hopes that I’d eventually learn to enjoy it. It wasn’t until recently I finally came to terms with the cold, hard truth: I loathe cooking.
However, I love eating, and it’s important to me to eat healthy, so I chose to look at my disdain for cooking as an opportunity to figure out how to do so using minimal amounts of really simple cooking.
Before we go on, let’s consider what it means to “eat healthy.”
What Is Healthy Eating? If we asked a dozen people their definition of healthy eating, we would get a dozen very different answers. Healthy eating depends on several factors, which means it won’t look the same from on..

Is Vaping Vitamins the Future of Wellness?

Do you even Juul, bro? A phrase you might hear overhear at a high school football game or walking past a pack of Scumbros. For a quick explainer on Juuls, they are e-cigarettes that deliver nicotine in flavors like crème brûlée and cucumber. An atomizer (heating coil) heats the liquid nicotine (e-juice) to a boiling point that turns it into a vapor that's inhaled through the tip of the device.

The hype and attention given to vaping over the last year or so opened the door for other businesses to deliver their products through this same process. These products are much less addictive—in fact, they actually have a wellness spin. Meet vitamin vapes, real e-cigs that mist B12 or other vitamin concoctions instead of nicotine. VitaminVape, which delivers B12, and VitaStick, whic..

Speak Up: Identifying Rape Culture in Everyday Conversation Aug, 28 Erica Smith Feminism You can find it in this 2011 New York Times description of an 11-year-old girl who was horrifically gang raped: “she dressed older than her age, wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s.”
You can find it in this story shared by Girls Gone Strong co-founder Molly Galbraith: “When I was 11 years old, two men in their thirties followed me around the mall until I alerted security that I was scared. I was told that I shouldn’t have worn such short shorts.”
You can find it in dismissals of powerful men bragging about sexual assault as “just locker room talk.”

9 Reasons Yoga Can Be a Great Cross-Training Practice

9 Reasons Yoga Can Be a Great Cross-Training Practice Aug, 20 Jenna Josefowski Yoga I’m both a yoga teacher and a personal trainer. I love lifting weights, doing burpees (not kidding) and everything about yoga. I’m often surprised at the lack of crossover between the yoga and fitness communities I work and play in, because I happen to think that they compliment each other quite nicely.
I’m always trying to convert my friends and co-workers from the gym to come to yoga with me. And for some reason, it’s rare that any of them actually take me up on it.
Some excuses I’ve heard recently:
“Love the idea of yoga but have zero time. I need a workout that can provide me the most results in the shortest time.”
“I’ve never really enjoyed yoga… I just feel like it’s boring.”
“I don’t like yoga because I feel I’m not flexible..

My Woke Hot American Summer: 72 Hours at Male Feminism Camp

Forty of America's wokest men are sitting in a circle on a mountaintop in Ojai, California. Many are wearing AllBirds and joggers, taking notes in their Moleskines. The only woman anyone notices is Esther Perel, the 60-year-old, sun-tanned couples’ therapist in jeans, a spaghetti strap top and platform sandals.

The men snap and nod their heads in agreement. Welcome to the inaugural Women Teach Men weekend: a three-day men’s wellness retreat designed “to increase emotional literacy among men and create a community of men that can be better allies to each other and women,” according to founder, event producer and author Michael Hebb.

Ask E. Jean: How to Cope When Your Ex Gets Engaged

Dear E. Jean: Last year I met an adorable fellow at a bar. One thing led to another, and we ended up going home together that night. We saw each other off and on for several weeks, then he dumped me, saying I was too young for him. I'm 24. He's 31. Six months later, he started dating a phony, obnoxious, downright dim-witted woman I work with. (We work in TV.) She was with me the night I met him! I had a hard time dealing with them being together, seeing as how he broke my heart, but I managed to function at work. Well, guess what, E. Jean? That bitch got engaged to him! Now it's impossible for me to pretend that they don't exist as she is wagging her ring all over. I'm inconsolable! How can a woman like that get engaged, and someone like me—smart, funny, friendly, cute—be single? It's unfair! So unjust! How do I deal?—The Cast-off
