Laura's Likes: Healthy Living

Posted: Updated:

As we emerge slowly from winter, Laura is sharing some items she likes for healthy living.

Yoga by Numbers

There are so many health benefits associated with yoga, but it can be intimidating for a beginner going into a yoga studio and seeing everyone in their fancy outfit striking amazing poses.

Enter Yoga by Numbers. With this system, you learn at home with no intimidation and nothing to discourage you. So that downward facing dog is accessible to anyone.

Using numbers and gridlines to position yourself accurately, the mat allows you to easily follow along, measure your progress and practice on your own terms. It's sort of like Twister for yoga.

The company launched about a year ago through a Kickstarter campaign. A starter kit will cost you $120 -- which includes the extra large mat, an instructional DVD and a carrying strap. You can find them at yogabynumbers.org.

Virtuous Living

Virtuous Living provides delicious, all-purpose spices that are 100 percent organic, gluten-free, kosher, wheat-free, halal and non-GMO.

More people these days do have a gluten intolerance or sensitivity, making it stressful to find healthy foods. So this is a great way to make meals tastier and not sacrifice flavor.

Virtuous Living sells the spices online at virtuousliving.com for about $10 a bottle. Whole Foods and Wegmans are also selling the spices.

Graze

We know grazing is a good eating strategy -- small meals or snacks throughout the day. And that is the idea behind this company called Graze.

They provide healthy, high quality snacks that arrive at your home or office. There are four vacuum-sealed containers in each box so you can eat them when you want. And you schedule the frequency you want them delivered for. They are $6 a box.

You go to graze.com/us/, enter your information, allergies, dietary preferences, and they will customize the snacks for you.

They come in perfect portion sizes and there is also a fun element of discovery. They use a special algorithm to predict your preferences based on the info you have entered.

They have over 90 products to choose from and all of them come with nutritional data. Each box you receive is different.
