While Thanksgiving may be the busiest travel day of the year, summer vacations are a close runner up! If you've been working hard for your beach bod, five days on a beach sipping fruity frozen drinks may worry you. Fear not! I'm here to provide tips and tricks so you have smooth sailing ahead...even if you're not on a boat!
Hi, my name is Chelsey, and I love food. Healthy or not (OK, mostly healthy), gluten-free or gluten-full, new on-the-market buzz or old favorites...I try not to discriminate!
Knowing I’m a clinical nutrition student, do you expect any different? (Maybe? Be honest!)
I love changing up my fitness routine and started looking into Barre classes. By the end of my research I was overwhelmed at the different types of classes, but above all the price. Man alive! Classes are not CHEAP, but if you find the right studio and buy package I know there is something out there for everyone.

Woah. It’s pretty crazy to think that every purchase that you make has an impact. When you buy something, you’re perpetuating a cycle, and giving companies a little dose of encouragement – without your purchase, they can’t keep doing what they’re doing.
Now, I know what you may be thinking...summer is all about “livin’ easy!” But countless social obligations, happy hours, and scorching temperatures can lead to stress and anxiety. To enjoy the warm weather, while still tackling all of your responsibilities at work, home, and for yourself, let’s focus on being mindful…especially about our health!
Here at DoGoodBuyUs, our philosophy is that all products should be Good for You, and Good for Others -that’s why we love THINX. Can you please explain how this applies?
After meeting a young girl in South Africa who was missing school because of her period (or what she called her "week of shame"), Team THINX discovered that 100 million girls around the world are falling behind and dropping out simply because they lack sanitary supplies during menstruation.
Among the fireworks, BBQs, and fun in the sun this weekend, it’s important to take time for your HEALTH! While the bikini bod “pressure” encourages some to kick their healthy eating plans into high gear, others get distracted by the countless parties, happy hours, and longer days. To keep your focus on point this season, I’m here to help you have a FUN and healthy summer!
As I scroll through my Facebook newsfeed on a daily basis I am concurrently inundated with news of birthdays, babies, bitching and beautiful selfies. For most of us social media is a place to post pictures, keep in touch with loved ones and unfortunately for most…brag about how “wonderful” our lives are.
Ok, by a few....I actually mean, a lot!As we thought about every aspect of the site many things became clear. 1) we wanted you to know the GOOD you were doing with every purchase. 2) we wanted to highlight what makes our partners so unique. X
With endless social engagements this time of year, it's hard to stick to our healthy eating plans 24/7. To have your cake and eat it too, opt for these smart swaps this sunny season:
Strength training improves overall fitness by increasing bone density and decreases risk for osteoporosis. By increasing muscle mass your body can more effectively burn calories. The more muscle you have the easier it is is to control your weight. Strength training is a win-win for all.
Chia seeds, salmon, avocado, blueberries...the list of “superfoods” is endless.
What entitles each of these foods deserve the label of “superfood?”
Typically, it’s the combination of fiber, protein, healthy fat, plus essential vitamins and minerals, that promote optimal nutrition for our bodies.
But remember, a single food item is not a panacea.
So what really makes these foods so super?
Yoga is Hot, Hot, Hot right now! I am not just talking about the increasingly popular trend of hitting class, but actual studios are heating up to extreme temperatures. I had the need to experience what the buzz was all about, and fortunately I have a Bikram Hot Yoga Studio right around the corner that I have wanted to give a try.
What better way to say thank you to the leading man in your life than to give your dad something special for Father’s Day. The countdown is here and there is only five days left till the big day. Instead of the usual, old gifts, DoGoodBuy.Us has the perfect gifts for your number #1 dad this year.
Let me guess, you usually give your Dad’s gifts along these lines…
I have two VERY important questions for you...
1) Do you know how many servings of fruits & veggies we should eat each day?
2) Do you know what a serving is???
The answers (according to the USDA Guidelines):
To my surprise there was a black bean burger on the menu and it was a char-grilled patty on a whole wheat bun, and I even let the french fries fall by the wayside.
Throughout my life, I always felt a desire to “do good” and help others. In my sophomore year of high school I decided to venture outside my comfort zone and travel to Tanzania, Africa.
I’ve watched her and my father follow this mantra by making donations to different charities at every turn, generously doing favors for friends and strangers
It seemed that nearly everyone I knew had been involved in Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts growing up, giving back to their community
Every 3 minutes a food allergy reaction sends someone to the ER. That’s not too surprising, considering that 15 million Americans have food allergies (yes, 15 million!). Whether you are personally affected or you know someone who is, food allergies effect all of us.
This past weekend was officially the kick-off of S-U-M-M-E-R and it is time to shed the jackets and boots and slip on those bikinis! However, we all took a second to remember what this weekend was truly about and took a moment to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
