Boozy Popsicles, Frozen Dessert with a Twist!

Want something to cool you down as the summer heat kicks in? Boozy Popsicles are the perfect solution!

Beth Ritter Nydick, author of Clean Cocktails – Righteous Recipes for the Modern Mixologist, brings you Boozy Popsicles. They are a perfect mix of frozen desserts and cocktails. These popsicles, or pop-tails are a great way to cool down on a warm summer day.

The flavors Beth offers include Bittersweet Bourbon Chocolate and Honeydew Cucumber among others. The Bittersweet Bourbon Chocolate Pop uses chocolate, cacao powder and bourbon. The Honeydew Cucumber Popsicle uses cucumber, honeydew, lime juice and tequila.

Beth is a health coach with two kids who appears regularly on The Dr. Oz Show and The Chew. She became a health coach because of her passion to work with people in bettering their health and family life. Beth runs cooking classes and workshops on nutrition as well as individual health and nutrition coaching to parents and families.

While the popsicles are a mix of frozen desserts and alcohol, they still follow with Beth’s healthy eating lifestyle. This is due to the wide variety of fruits and vegetables within them.

Wellness By Roma

Wellness by Roma

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino met with the Garden State’s newest business owner on the block, Roma Bajaj Kohli of Wellness by Roma!

Roma, a certified yoga teacher and fusion food enthusiast, has developed a wellness journal that guides users (specifically, time-starved moms!) on achieving a holistic lifestyle that encompasses the best mind, body and soul practices.

“I understand that time is of the essence for a lot of people, so I want to help them adapt good habits that will allow them to enjoy a peaceful and energized life,” explained Roma.

Roma knows first-hand on how embracing yoga and organic recipes can help bring about positive changes to one’s life. “I was struggling with my husband working around the clock while I was home with our two children. Being a stay-at-home home, I felt lost. My background was in fashion, but I felt trapped and wondered where my life was going. When I dived full-force into this lifestyle, a part of me was healed.

What Roma couldn’t have predicted was that her new mindset help bring her family closer together. On weekends, the family practices yoga together in their family room and enjoys a healthy meal afterwards. Roma looks forward to these moments more than anything in the world.

Hoboken Wellness Crawl

HOBOKEN GIRL HOSTS SECOND ANNUAL HOBOKEN WELLNESS CRAWL

HobokenGirl.com, the Hudson County website centered on all things Hoboken and Jersey City, is celebrating health and wellness in Hoboken with their 2nd Annual Hoboken Wellness Crawl.

The Hoboken Wellness Crawl will occur on Sunday, April 22nd, 2018 from 11:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M throughout Hoboken with over 80 businesses participating. $1 from every ticket sold is being donated to The Water Project, a charity focused on supplying clean drinking water for communities around the world. Last year the event drew in over 600 people, and more are expected this year.

“We’re so excited to be celebrating our 2nd annual event — and supporting local health and wellness businesses in the process. It’s an amazing thing to be able to walk around one square mile and visit all of these local businesses devoted to making us healthier and happier,” says founder Jennifer Casson Tripucka. “This year, hosting the crawl on Earth Day, we chose our charity of choice to be The Water Project, as it is committed to helping communities in need of clean drinking water around the world.”

HOBOKEN WELLNESS CRAWL

An entry ticket includes an exclusive map to the Hoboken Wellness Crawl and an entry bracelet used to walk around Hoboken and visit Wellness Stops (at participants’ leisure throughout the day — similar to a bar crawl, sans alcohol).

Over 70 Hudson County businesses are participating.

Tickets are available online here — and on crawl day can be presented at four designated check-in spots around Hoboken – Uptown (Fit Foundry – 1416 Willow Avenue), Downtown (Birch – 92 River Street), West (The Spine and Sports Health Center at the Monroe Center – 720 Monroe Street), and CarePoint Health (109 Grand Street).
