Flipping for flip flops
Rubber flip flops are most commonly spotted on the beach, but why not pair that cute print on the sole of your flops to the rest of your outfit? Lands End, (pictured), www.landsend.com, offers eight solid color and six print flip flops for $12 each. A few of the colors include bright parrot (green), lemon and rich red. Although spending the day walking around in flip flops may not seem like a good workout, you’ll be sure to feel the burn the next day when you wear flip flops that challenge your muscles. FitFlops, $49.99, have three different densities of foam, called EVA, that work the muscles in your legs and the gluteus maximus with each step you take. The technology, called micro-wobbleboard, works 12 core muscles. To find a retailer near you, visit www.thefitflop.com.
Sweet treat all-stars
The secret is in the main ingredient, frozen Kefir, a creamy dairy product similar to yogurt. Kefir has 10 live probiotic cultures, known for encouraging the growth of good bacteria in your digestive system. The frozen Kefir is always available in the original flavor and an additional flavor changes daily. For parfaits and smoothies, there are a variety of flavors.
The staff is always willing to help you choose from the more than 24 ingredients, which range from freshly made Rice Krispie treat bits and cookies from Alliance Bakery to Washington cherries and Brazilian gogi berries. There are also kid-centric ingredients such as Fruity Pebbles and crushed Oreos.
Prices range from $3-$7 based on the size and type of Kefir treat you choose. Toppings cost $1 for the first and 50 cents for each additional topping and non-frozen organic Kefir costs 50 cents extra.
