Designed to strengthen, lengthen, and make your muscles burn in the best way possible, a low-impact barre class is the perfect workout, any day of the week. Using props that include bands, balls, free weights—and yes, a ballet barre—you’ll be challenged every tuck of the way. Studio Barre offers 45-minute Quick Tuck classes multiple times a week, so you can sneak in a fast fitness session and reap all the benefits of this full-body workout in an encouraging (and fun!) environment. 


Cycling

Trust us; nothing feels better than clipping in, sweating it out, and spinning to the beat. Whether you’re a newbie to the bike or cycle every night after work, a cardio-blag sting, heart-pumping cycling class is an awesome way to push yourself in under an hour. If you’re looking to crush your next cycling class on a tight timeframe, Rush Cycle is your answer. Featuring high-energy instructors, bass bumping playlists, and positive vibes, Rush Ride is 45-minutes of pure pedaling bliss. Plus, Rush Cycle’s themed rides are rad! 


Pilates 

Pilates Proworks

With a focus on power, precision, and control, Pilates will work every element of your mental and physical strength.

The PilatesPro class at San Francisco-based Pilates ProWorks delivers a powerful 40-minute workout option. Combining resistance, strength, and cardio in a small class setting, instructors are hands-on to help you succeed.  


Dance

Not Too Cheesy: Vegan "Cheese" Recipes That Taste Like The Real Thing

Recipes
Food
Nutrition

We all love cheese. And if you don’t love cheese, well, you just haven’t found the right kind for you. If you’re unlucky like me, however, cheese does not like you. Thankfully, we live in 2020, where plant-based cheese recipes are alive and well.

I have been dairy-free for a few years, and cheese is truly the food group I miss the most. As much as we try, we sometimes just can’t get vegan cheese to taste like the real thing. So, I recruited my dairy-loving, cow-consuming friends to be my taste-testers. Their brutal honesty helped me create some “fake” cheese that can actually compete with the real stuff.

Goat "Cheese" Ball

Did you know you can make mouth-watering “fake” cheese with macadamia nuts? Yes, macadamia nuts. If you’re craving that creamy consistency but your stomach isn’t down for dairy, try out this recipe inspired by Simple Vegan Blog

No one can tell the difference between this recipe and their favorite gooey cheese sauce. This recipe makes a lot of sauce, so be ready to share and shock your dairy-loving friends.
