Plant-Based Cooking Made Easy Cookbook

Plant-Based Cooking Made Easy Cookbook

"I started eating a whole-food, plant-based diet over the summer, and while I knew my way around the kitchen making basics like salads, soups, and vegan banana bread, many of the recipes I made involved oil, sugar, and flour. Plant-Based Cooking Made Easy ($18, originally $20) was just released in December 2020 and has a great selection of over 100 delicious recipes. It showed me how easy cooking without those ingredients can be. I've made the Pumpkin Spice Scones and the Creamy Chickpea Curry, and I can't wait to try the Cheesy Broccoli and Rice Casserole." — Jenny Sugar, staff writer, Fitness

HiBar Solid Conditioner

HiBar Solid Conditioner

"As I'm trying to live a more sustainable lifestyle, I was excited to try this HiBar Solid Conditioner ($14). It comes in recyclable paper packaging, and it's used in the same way as a bar of soap — just rub it on your head and hair. I was shocked how moisturizing this little palm-size bar was, and my curls looked more defined and smooth. I'm psyched that it's paraben-free, sulfate-free, plastic-free, cruelty-free, and vegan." — JS

Safe + Fair Dill Pickle Seasoned Popcorn

Safe + Fair Dill Pickle Seasoned Popcorn

"I'm a huge fan of Safe + Fair's popcorn that is drizzled with dark chocolate, and the brand's savory popcorns are just as delicious! In particular, the Dill Pickle Seasoned Popcorn ($5) is salty, tangy, and can't-get-enough good! It's a nice midday or nighttime snack for me at just 130 calories per serving." — Sam Brodsky, assistant editor, Fitness

Body Back Buddy Elite Massager

Body Back Buddy Elite Massager

"When my dad bought an S-shaped massager tool last year, it looked like a pretty freaky contraption to me. But I've loved using it for muscle-soreness relief and for trigger-point massages all over my back and neck — it's surprisingly handy! The one we have at home isn't available anymore, but this Body Back Buddy Elite Massager ($30) is similar." — SB

Sedona Crescent Meditation Cushion

Sedona Crescent Meditation Cushion

"I'm trying to meditate every day in 2021, so I knew I had to get serious about my setup. I got the chance to try out the Sedona Crescent Meditation Cushion ($23), and it's become my go-to seat for my morning meditation sessions. It's nice and firm, and it gives me just enough cushion to feel comfortable but still supported. I usually forget I'm even sitting on it, which is the ultimate compliment for any meditation tool." — Maggie Ryan, assistant editor, Fitness

Elavi Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars

Elavi Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars

"Elavi Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars ($34 for 16) are a good source of marine collagen (12 grams per bar!) while being low on ultraprocessed ingredients. This flavor was my favorite: sweet, gooey chocolate, a chewy texture, and filling enough to keep me going after a tough workout." — MR

Hoka Carbon X 2

Hoka Carbon X 2 

"As I've been adding more miles to my runs, I was excited to try out a sample of Hoka Carbon X 2 ($180). At first, I was a bit intimated by the design, which features an extended foot sole. They looked too funky to be running shoes! However, after taking them on runs, I was impressed by how lightweight and stable they felt and smooth they made my run." — Genevieve Farrell Roston, fitness and wellness director

Lululemon Flow Y Bra in Intricate Oasis Love Red Multi

Lululemon Flow Y Bra in Intricate Oasis Love Red Multi

"The Lululemon Flow Y bra ($48) is my go-to sports bra. I was so excited to see its latest version in a vibrant red for its Lunar New Year Collection. I always feel like I work out a bit harder when I wear red, and this will definitely be the bra I sport on Valentine's Day." — GFR

Old Navy Built-In Warm Fleece-Lined Performance Leggings

Old Navy Built-In Warm Fleece-Lined Performance Leggings

"This year, I committed to walking outside every day no matter the weather. These Old Navy Built-In Warm Fleece-Lined Performance Leggings ($30, originally $40) have been keeping me warm while I get my steps — even in below-freezing temps. They are comfy, don't roll down when I'm running, and have side pockets to hold all my stuff. Plus, they're on sale right now." — Jennifer Fields, deputy editor, Fitness

Tenzo Modern Matcha Bundle

Tenzo Modern Matcha Bundle

"I usually hit an afternoon slump and want a boost of energy, but coffee has too much caffeine and will keep me up at night. When Tenzo sent me its Modern Matcha Bundle ($40), it was the perfect solution for a midday pick-me-up. Each serving has about 72 grams of caffeine (compared to coffee's 95 mg of caffeine) to give me energy without the crash. The bundle comes with an electric stir stick to help stir in the matcha powder and a teaspoon to get the perfect serving size. I've been loving matcha lattes with oat milk." — Christina Stiehl, senior editor, Fitness

HydroJug

HydroJug

"I thought I was pretty good about drinking water, but I would always end up refilling the same cup over and over and get annoyed with the constant trips to the fridge. The HydroJug ($20) is a half gallon, so I don't spend forever filling it up, and it's easy to carry around. But I go through at least three jug-fulls of water throughout the day, and it's so handy to keep by my computer. I have been recommending one to everyone I know!" — CS

Lululemon Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve 2.0 Shirt

Lululemon Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve 2.0 Shirt

"Whether I take my workouts outside or do them in my chilly apartment, a long-sleeved shirt I can work out in is a must. I've been loving the Lululemon Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve 2.0 Shirt ($78) the brand sent me for my winter workouts. I like that it's more loose-fitting, but it still feels fitted enough to stick to you while you work out. Plus, it's not too warm, and my skin can still breathe when I get sweaty. Another bonus? If I do a lunchtime workout, it looks chic enough to wear on a work video call afterward." — CS

No, Thank You Lip Balm

No, Thank You Lip Balm

"My lips get super dry in the winter, and it's hard to find a lip balm that actually works. No, Thank You Balm For Lips ($18) goes on smooth and helps heal my dry, cracked lips. The vanilla mint scent is pleasant without being overpowering, and the packaging is just so chic! I've noticed a huge difference after using it for a couple weeks." — CS
