MINDBODY + Erin Foster: What We Loved From The Best of Wellness Event

Fitness
Beauty
Salon

We teamed up with Erin Foster – Bumble’s creative director and notorious cool girl – to bring L.A. not only a killer view, but an exclusive event featuring fitness, wellness, and beauty! 

Hosted at the newly opened AllBright West Hollywood, Erin Foster joined us – and over 200 attendees –to check out free simulated surfing workouts from Sandbox Fitness, cryotherapy facials with CryoCafe, and even a dry braid bar from TreSs Apothecary + Salon. We truly thought of everything. 

It was a night to remember! If you’re feeling major FOMO though, don’t worry; here are our favorite moments from the epic event. 

Keep your face cool. 

CryoCafe showed us all about keeping our faces refreshed and gettin’ that youthful glow. As simple as grabbing a cup of your favorite coffee, their 5-minute BeautyFix facial stimulates blood flow and cell regeneration in the skin. Not only does it tighten the skin, but it also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, boosts collagen production, and bonus: it’s even antibacterial to rid you of those pesky breakouts or irritations. Puts a whole new meaning to your best face forward.

Crowns fit for a queen. 

The braids from TreSs Apothecary + Salon definitely make the grade. Whether you’re saying bonjour to a beautiful French braid or want a fishtail fit for a mermaid, these styles were made to show off in an Instagram selfie.

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

Nacho "Cheese" Sauce

I know what you’re thinking: is this real? Is it too good to be true? No nuts, no fat, and it tastes good? You’re in for a treat. 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.
