By now we all know I spend a bulk of my time being nerdy when it comes to health & fitness, that is to say while other people are reading tabloids, I'm scrolling eagerly through the Health section of Mashable. Needless to say, the collection of sites I've bookmarked is staggering. Here are a few of my favorites:
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: This website is perfect for everyone. Split into three main sections--fitness, nutrition, and happiness--these articles are written in a way that is informative, easy to read, and funny. Their ability to cater to a large audience really drives home the importance of remaining healthy in all aspects of life. Whether you're trying to make a few healthy choices here and there, or you're going all-out Health Guru, Greatist is absolutely worth checking out. Oh and before I forget... #imagreatist. Don't worry, you'll get it.
Run by the hilarious and amazingly athletic Juli Bauer, this blog is your go-to spot for Paleo recipes. Not on a paleolithic diet? Don't worry, me either. I am, however, gluten-free, and that's a major component of the Paleo diet. Gluten-free or not, these recipes are amazing. I promise, you won't even know that you're eating healthy. Not to mention, Juli is hilarious. I can't even get through a recipe without cracking a smile at her random anecdotes and sarcastic remarks. As a matter of fact, I'm reading a post about Pumpkin Pie Bars right now, laughing and drooling all at the same time. Check it out!
This site has a category for everything. From beginner fitness tips to vegan recipes to even celebrity weight loss, you'll always find yourself learning something new. Best of all, they have many articles geared towards those leading a busy lifestyle, who maybe doesn't have a lot of time to change their habits or incorporate a new diet. For example, an article published today: 3 Mantras to Make your Commute a Meditation. Take a little tour and explore all the different categories. It'll keep you busy for hours. Makes for a great Friday night! Well... maybe that's just me.
