Take Your Workout on Vacation

Travel
Motivation

Are you planning a vacation in the coming months? Taking a break from your daily grind doesn't mean you have to leave your workouts behind. Here are four ways to make sure you stay on track, even if you leave town.

1. Ask your favorite instructors for workouts

If you ask, there’s a good chance that one of your favorite instructors will help program a special workout for you while you’re away. They can help you figure out how to fit in a WOD on a cruise ship, program a sandy beach yoga sequence or make use of the hotel fitness center.

2. Try new classes

Is there a trendy new workout style you’ve been dying to try? Search for it on the MINDBODY app and book your place in class before you ever leave home. Every city is different and you never know what you’ll discover!

3. Explore on the run

Take your workout outside and explore your destination on foot. Be sure to carry ID and the address of where you are staying, just in case you get lost.

4. Make use of a guest pass

Many gyms and health clubs offer guest passes for short visits. If you’re going to be in the same location for a couple of days, purchase a pass to get a variety of workouts or access to fitness equipment.

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

Recipes

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
