What Workout (Or Wellness Activity) Would Your Favorite Game of Thrones Character Do?

Barre
Kickboxing
Personal Training
Meditation
Interval Training

The countdown is *officially* on. Need something to distract yourself from the long-awaited season eight premiere this Sunday? 

Whether you’re loyal to Jon Snow or looking to channel your inner Mother of Dragons, here’s a list of workouts (and wellness activities) that your favorite Game of Thrones character would kill for, if they weren’t all fighting for the Iron Throne.

Daenerys Targaryen

Infrared Sauna: Heat under pressure

Clearly, this daring dragon mom can handle a little bit of heat, so she’d feel right at home during a session of infrared sauna therapy. While most people can only handle 30-minutes at a time, we’d be willing to bet Daenerys wouldn’t break a sweat for hours. It is known.

Jon Snow

Cryotherapy: Winter is here

While Jon Snow might know nothing about heat, he’s all too familiar with the cold. Whether he’s treating injuries from venturing North of the Wall or needs to release a few endorphins for that constant brooding, cryotherapy is the solution.

Cersei Lannister

HIIT: Power & control

Determined to win at any cost, this truly badass babe would be all about a good HIIT class. Extra disciplined, yet filled with inner rage, she could sweat it out while holding a glass of red wine, rolling her eyes at you for falling behind.

Arya Stark

Kickboxing: Train like a northerner

When she’s not fighting as a Faceless Man, the youngest Stark is all about high-intensity. Independent, adventurous, and unique, it’s clear her workout of choice would be something as intense and fierce as kickboxing.

Tyrion Lannister

Personal Training: A wise workout

With a quick tongue and razor-sharp wit, this son of Tywin Lannister knows all the things. The character with the most intellect and sage advice, we *definitely* want him guiding our next personal training session.

Bran Stark

Meditation: Find your zen

How did Bran become the Three-Eyed Raven? Meditation. JK, it’s magic but IRL we’d like to think he achieved guru status when it comes to inner stillness.

Jaime Lannister

Bootcamp: Strong & agile

House Lannister keeps it lean. Whether he’s fighting Daenerys and her dragons or taking a long journey with Brienne, bootcamp is the perfect workout to keep the Kingslayer crushing it all winter (and summer) long.

Sansa Stark

Barre: Damsel in distress no more

The eldest Stark daughter might have been all about a blowout in her early years, but heading into season eight, we’ve been introduced to a whole new Sansa. Cool, calculated, and confident. Basically, don’t get on her bad side. We think the Lady of Winterfell would fit in nicely at a barre class, tucking ever so precisely with the ultimate control and patience.

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

Recipes

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
