Brackets Our Way

Keep the votes coming so your Club makes it to the finals! The winning location receives a FREE LUNCH from a local food truck for members and associates.

In Travel

Spring Break is on the horizon, and according to the travel experts, Americans are opting for a “closecation”. What is that you say? It’s traveling to a region within a 4-hour drive window from home. We are loving this trend as your closecation could become a Baycation! Our San Diego Members can head North to the Beach Cities; our East Bay Members can head to Marin for some pool time at Ross Valley, San Francisco… Courtside is calling. Pick a boutique hotel and hit up a new Club to enjoy something new with the family. Your Baycation is calling!


So Charming

We can’t enter this month without thinking of a childhood bowl of Lucky Charms BUT, who wants all of the artificialness (is that a word?). Lucky for us, Magic Spoon has hit the market. All of your favorite childhood cereal flavors but with no added sugars or artificial colors… high-protein, gluten and grain-free, and the list goes on. Did we mention keto friendly? So many flavors to choose from but we are big fans of Cocoa and Fruity. News alert: we are not affiliated in any way to Magic Spoon. We just pass out good info to keep our modern families healthy and in the know. It’s not cheap, but nothing good is… 


Feeling Sleepy?

So thankful to be graced with a bit more sunlight, but losing an hour of sleep is not high on our list. We thought we would share some tips on getting great Z’s…so we can hit these Spring days full of energy. If we had to boil it down to the top 3 sleep tips…don’t eat late, skip that night cap, and take a great magnesium.

If you want a great night sleep, stop eating after 6:00 pm. It gives your body time to fully digest before you hit the hay. If you eat late, your body is forced to sleep and digest at the same time. Bodies aren’t great at multi-tasking and therefore can’t do a great job at either one. Skipping alcohol altogether is a great answer, but if that is not your answer, avoid drinking a few hours before bedtime and make sure to over hydrate.

As for Magnesium, it is a proven sleep helper! Magnesium is a mineral element that you already have in your body, thanks to foods like nuts, seeds and beans. Most of us in the US are magnesium deficient. Taking a high-quality Magnesium Glycinate (we love Pure Encapsulation) before bed will help you drift off comfortably. As with all vitamin and mineral changes, feel free to run this recommendation by your MD or FM partner.
