National Bike Month ain’t over yet, people. (What? You didn’t know that was a thing?) And as such, it’s high time your kids put the pedal to the, um, shoe — and got moving. In fact, now that the sun is making a more frequent appearance, it’s a great time to hop off the stationary

Picture it: You’re lounging by the pool, and in your right hand is an ice-cold cocktail. What’s in it? Tequila? Vodka? How about… gin? Gin might not be the first spirit to come to mind as a refreshing summer spritzer, but after taking a look at the fruity, citrus-spiked cocktails we’ve rounded up for you,

There are countless items in your kitchen that you know for a fact you won’t use every day, but still serve a purpose. Take silicone mats, for example.

Zinc is what you would call a “micronutrient.” But just because it’s not a macronutrient like protein, fat, or carbohydrates doesn’t mean it’s not important. Science shows that zinc can help support a healthy immune system, assist in the healing of wounds, and aid in DNA development. “In one review, zinc lozenges were found to
Although the weather doesn’t really feel like it (at least in the northeast), it is technically spring and that means soon, we’ll have lots of fresh, spring produce to work with in our kitchens. Deciding how to use all of that delicious new produce is an entirely different story. When we’re in need of recipe
The streets of the UK are almost empty at the moment, as it was announced that we are all to avoid going outside except for essentials. In what’s being called a lockdown, people are being asked to leave only for food, medicine, and to work if they can’t work from home, in the hopes it
You may have seen the advertisements bouncing around social media. “Wellness!! Vital Silver!!! Simple!!! Go on the offense this year against viruses including the Coronavirus – it’s simple!” “Structured Silver allows a silver particle-cluster of silver to kill multiple bacteria, viruses, and yeast/candida pathogens throughout the body until it is safely excreted.” Those aren’t hypothetical
For as much as we love to see cute, snuggly newborns on Instagram, we don’t always appreciate the hours of labor that brought them here. But maybe — just maybe! — getting an inside look into the birthing process could change that. Enter the beautiful world of childbirth photography, which has become an art form
Even though we’re all more than capable of living a full, beautiful and satisfying life on a budget, sometimes you want to throw your money at something a bit extra and a bit more luxurious. It could be the high tech (but easy to lose) ear buds, a fancy lady wrap dress, a professional quality
While some are days into their month-long vegan diet — also known as Veganuary — others are participating in Dry January, another New Year’s resolution trend during which drinkers give up alcohol for the month. Since Dry January started in 2013 with 4,000, it’s come a long way, with more than 100,000 signing up and
A newly published paper in PNAS details a research breakthrough that provides a promising starting point for scientists to create drugs that can cure C. diff—a virulent health care-associated infection that causes severe diarrhea, nausea, internal bleeding, and potentially death. The bacteria affects roughly half-a-million Americans and causes nearly 15,000 deaths in the U.S. annually.
